SUMMER CARRY. RAMI 9mm in HIGH NOON STYLE!
My requested order arrived a number of days ago after only a short waiting period. I'm always excited to see that brown box with the High Noon logo, but even more so, knowing that it would be a CZ holster and matching single mag pouch in horsehide. Having used a few High Noon holsters in the past that were horsehide, I find that the material is notably more expensive than cowhide, but far superior.
Noon Slide Guard in cowhide is now over a year old and still going strong , but not as light and thin as one in horse would be. I also like the fact that horsehide seems to require no break in period, you can holster up from the box and the horse holster settles right in. Sometimes cowhide leather will squeak for a few days or a week. There is a complete FAQ section on the High Noon web site that compares both materials,
so you can be the judge.
The High Noon Speedy Spanky paddle for the 2075 RAMI is one nice looking and highly functional holster. The holster has a medium, cream vanilla coloring with the trademark or should I say exclusive golden thread that you will find on most tan or natural holsters from High Noon. Positive stitching throughout the holster with deep hand molding of the material for a strong and tight fitting holster, but not too tight to impede your draw. Everything works just
right with this holster!
The paddle is adjustable for both height and rake, but I like to keep mine at the factory setting. There is also a tension screw on the holster that allows you to set your retention level if needed. Also, there is no need for a metal band at the holster mouth to reinforce it, the double layer of heavy duty leather handles the job just fine. The draw is quick, smooth and positive.
One feature of the High Noon Speedy Spanky that I really like is the sewn in sight track or sometimes
called by makers - a sight channel. Having commented on this during my prior Ruger holster review, I can't help but to mention some info that might be helpful to future holster buyers. I had to sell two expensive holsters due to the fact that after installing taller sights, the front sight would drag inside the holster. If those holsters had something like this sight channel which High Noon includes on their designs, I'd have been much happier.
