View Full Version : High Noon Holster?

December 1, 2007, 10:32 AM
I have been looking at the High Noon IWB holsters. Do any of you use a Bare Assets or Mr. Softy? They are basically the same holster with the BA being canted. Are these good holsters that are comfortable? I have a SW99.

I have a Bare Asset that I've been wearing every day stuffed with my Kimber ProCarryII. It works very well, although I don't have much experience with other holsters. This is my first IWB holster, until my Milt Sparks VM2 arrives next month.

Comfortable? Yes. My one knock is that it allows a bit too much movement. The belt clip is secure, and doesn't come loose, but the whole thing tends to rotate a little bit forward or back depending on my movement. I feel like I have to adjust the cant of the gun more than I want to. But again--that could just be my limited experience with holsters. I've only been carrying a couple months.

All in all, for the money its a good little holster.

I have a Bare Asset for my Kahr and it's ok for a small pistol. I'm not a fan High Noon's off the rack products in general. For something that size I'd invest in a CrossBreed (http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/index.html). They deliver in about a week or two and their prices are excellent. The design pulls the pistol in close, offers a fast draw, and the quality is good. Later when you've had time to think through whether that SW99 (a nice but largish pistol) will remain your carry gun of choice then look at the Milt Sparks VMII for a long term investment.

By the way don't be tempted to buy Hign Noon's off the rack gun belts. In my opinion they are about on par with a $10 WalMart belt. Invest in a good gun belt to properly support that pistol.

I have three High Noon holsters: a Split Decision IWB tuckable, a Bare Asset IWB and a SkinGuard OWB.

All work fine, none are ideal. They are a reasonable compromise between cost, wait time and functionality. I use them all at different times. One thing I like about them is that since they aren't custom, I can use them for more than one handgun. I own at least four pistols that I can carry effectively and comfortably in my Skinguard OWB.

Here's what I went with after doing some research:

They are not bad for what you pay for.

I have a high noon split decision and the quality is great, let alone for the price you will pay. I do not regret my purchase but there definitely is better alternatives, although you will pay much more.

Having been raked over the coals by an over zealous prosecutor mine own self, just the name High Noon scares me. YMMV

I've got a Mr. Softy for my OACP and had one for a G27 that I traded away. I love em. The gun holds very snug but pulls out easily. It is very comfortable to wear also. I don't think they can be beat at the price they sell for.

I had one, did not like it. It collapes once your gun is drawn, and reholstering was difficult. High Noon makes other IWB type holsters that are much better in my opinion. You may pay more, but I think you'll get a better holster if you do.
