To give some context, I have had many of the popular and many of the "high-end" holsters out there for a number of different guns: Milt Sparks VM2, Brommeland MC5, HBE COM3s, CTAC, MTAC, Serpa.
I have ordered my last 4-5 holsters from Eric @ HBE Leatherworks as I liked the way his holsters fit and because of his business break-down in 2007, his lead times had been "short" (4 weeks max...until my last holster ). Well the last COM3 I ordered for my P220 and I was quoted 10 weeks...after 18 weeks it finally arrived but once again his colors vary so drastically and what I ordered as cordovan turned out to be pretty close to black. I do love the quality and fit of my HBE holsters, I just hated the wait and lack of communication this time around. Sorry for the rant, just giving a lead-in to why I chose Nate @ UBG to make my most recent holster for my P2000sk.
I contacted Nate 3.5 weeks ago asking a few questions and received prompt email responses. I placed my order for a "Canute" in cordovan, without a reinforced mouth band and I received my holster less than 2.5 weeks later. Nate completely over-delivered both on quality but also on his lead time which was AWESOME!
The holster is a beautiful cordovan and has excellent weapon retention. The most incredible part to me is the boning which is equal to if not better than my Brommeland and leaps and bounds better than the other leather holster I have owned. I really have zero complaints and will from now on be switching solely to commissioning work from Nate!
Thanks for looking!
