    the Don Hume JIT.........

    been wearing it for three days.......hands down the BEST OWB holster for a G26, IMO!!!! very minimal holster, secure and tight.......

    the best $20 ive ever spent......and it replaces my Galco Concealable which costs three times as much:wavey:

    Does it hold the 26 close to your body?

    Can we see pics of the back of it with the belt loops?

    Thanks

    Just by looking at the pic, the holster is being worn at the 3 o'clock and is a straight drop...I would think that the rear sight might print with a tee shirt as shown..maybe moving it to the 3:30 or 4:00 oclock might make it more concealable...I use Rm Holsters OWB Kydex Paddle with a FBI cant...Great, but it is closer to $55.00...

    The best holster would completely cover the trigger area.

    hey everybody,

    im at work right now but will post a pic when i get home.......

    but there are two slots in the back of the holster, one on the inside flap and one that is directly behind the gun......

    and i will take a picture with my shirt down in this position.....its totally invisible.....

    and to the "cover the trigger guard comment".......the trigger is completely covered.......if you are referring to the 1/2 inch of visibility directly behind it, my Galco Concealable and TT Gunleather holster for my 19 is the same way

    Why not make sure the trigger area is completely covered? Looks like you do a good job of it.

    I have that holster and can not stand it. Does not hold the butt in at all.

    Guys, if you want to conceal the 26 with any outside holster just get an old Army shirt and have a semstress take the sleves off. That becomes your light weight 'vest' to wear and it covers a 26 quite well.

    You can then tuck your t-shirt inside your pants and have a good fast setup. If the wind blows some, just put a few coins in the bottom pockets for weight.

    Looks like a pretty good holster. If it works for you thats all that matters.

    I carry my G26 in a Raven Phantom.

    I have had ZERO problems concealing the 26 with just a T shirt.......and that is with three different holsters used so far.........the JIT is the best of the bunch so far....

    I didn't say I don't agree. LOL I was just wasn't gonna bust someones bubble on their perfect holster. That being said... covering the trigger guard is for safety as we all know. You would be hard pressed to get something in front of the trigger on the OP's holster.

    They way this holster is designed is to make a pseudo Avenger style with a straight drop. This can't be done as a high ride and cover the trigger guard. Not without making it one UGLY holster.

    If the OP like it, great. Now the comment about the rear sight printing, I am still not sure about. :dunno: :rofl:

    I've carried my G27 in a JIT for years. Also, IMO, one of the best holsters made for these guns. I usually wear just a T-shirt over it and never have a problem with the sight printing. It's not quite a straight drop, maybe 5 degree cant.

    @ Deaf Smith, I think a sleeveless army shirt screams "GUN" about a 100 times more than a little bulge. :D

    About the COMPLETELY covering the trigger guard, who cares? It covers enough that there's no way anything is going to get in and hook the trigger. I think that whole criteria was invented by some bored gun writer trying to justify his existence in print.

    How is that holster $16.49?! The dye, finish, glue, thread, and leather alone must cost at least $4 per holster.

    When I mentioned the rear sight printing, I was refering to the rear of the slide as well, thus my advice of repositioning the holster...If it works and you are happy, right on...:cool:

    Don Hume probably makes the Glock Combat holster too, which gets rave reviews, and is another excellent holster!!!!! LOL

    probably costs .25 cents to make and costs $15 bucks:wavey:
