I change holsters a lot looking for the one.

I got away from the paddle and tried the Don Hume #10





I liked the way it rode tight on my body and always felt firm, but it pushed my weapon into my fat side, so I wasnt 110% on it, especially when driving.


Made an EE deal for a few holsters and tried the Galco Yaqui.




Damn do I like this thing!

I wasnt sure when I saw it, as there isnt much to it, but thats the beauty of it. The weapon moves with my body, but still nice and tight, and no more pushing into my fat side.


It also has just a touch more cant forward, which I prefer, and tension adjustments.


Great holster, glad I switched!

Thanks. I've been on the fence about one, I guess I'll give it a try.

Used holsters are too damn cheap, and usually in nice shape. Mine were still inthe bag, like new, off EE, for a song, and a dance.


I have bought some at funshows for as little as a dollar. I have a box full of ones I have worn, I need a bigger box!

Careful how you sit with the Yaqui, with some longer pistols, sitting in an armchair or bucket seats of cars can push the pistol out. YMMV, but I can attest to this happening in the middle of a very nice restaurant!

Im running an Officers, but will keep an eye on it. I knew it felt too damn easy to be that good.

Thanks!

The Yaqui doesn't hold the gun tight enough to the body for me. I've been carrying my Pro Carry in a Galco Concealable that I picked up for $35. One of the most comfortable holsters I've ever used and keeps the butt of the gun nice and tight against my side.

That's one of the cool things about the EE and other For Sale/Trade forums online. You can pickup holsters that folks tried and just didn't like for some reason, and they're usually pretty cheap.

That Don Hume is my primary carry holster, but I know exactly what you're talking about. When I bought it about five years ago it was perfectly comfortable, but I've started to get a little more side since then.

We'll see how the New Year's resolution concerning side reduction works out before I go buying anything else tho.

Gunguy...good heads up on the Yaqui and seated positions...I am thinking aobut picking one up today for certain situations where my Galco Phoenix might not do....another GREAT holster, by the way.
