Don Hume Pocket Holster 001 No. 43 for the Glock-43



I am real picky when it comes to pocket holsters; since the Glock-43 first came out, none of the pocket holsters marketed for it impressed me; I just recently ran across the above and it struck me as a potential bargain.  Don Hume products have worked out for me in the past; for the ~$25 retail price of the above holster, I didn't think there was much downside risk.  Once it was delivered, I found that the holster properly fits the G43 (only a wee bit of break-in was needed), it fits and protects my pockets (it is ambidextrous), it positions the pistol as it should, and it protects that Glock trigger.  How will I feel about this holster a year from now?  Please check back later.



The above horsehide Galco PH286 is a Glock-26 pocket holster that I have used for around a year to pocket carry the Glock-43.  It did a good job keeping the G43 positioned properly in my pocket but the fit was not ideal because the G43 is a much slimmer pistol than is the G26. 


The Galco PH286 does look to be a good fit for the Glock-43, but looks are deceiving.


By giving the Galco PH286 a strategic squeeze, you can see that the fit is loose enough to allow an unintentional finger or something else down by the trigger of the Glock-43; I have always been keenly conscious of the fact that my improvised use of this holster only marginally protected the trigger of the G43.  Anyhow, now that I have the Don Hume 001 No. 43, a holster that is properly sized for the Glock 43, I can return this ever faithful and durable Galco PH286 back to the Glock-26 kit where it rightfully belongs.



NOTE 3/15/2016:  It has been a month.  I have used this holster almost daily since I got it and it is working out just fine!
