Thumbs Down On Bell Charter Oak Holsters
I made a HUGE blunder when I bought a holster for my Colt Cobra from Bell Charter Oak, pictured in this thread.
The first thing that caught my attention was that the leather is extremely thin and flexible, almost like suede. I've seen leather wallets that were thicker than this holster. Compared to my Max-Con V, well, there's no comparison. It's like comparing apples to oranges, literally.
Since the belt loop was a tight fit on my belt, I figured the holster might be OK anyway, since the Cobra is a lightweight gun and the thin leather wouldn't matter much. Then I tried wearing it. Look at the pic. It's obvious this is not a concealment holster. The only cover garment that will conceal this rig is my arctic parka. :wink:
Unfortunately, returning the holster is not an option. Bell Charter Oak's return policy is limited to defects in workmanship, so I'm stuck with it. In fact, that's exactly what they told me.
So I strongly recommend not doing business with Bell Charter Oak Holsters. Their products are inferior and their customer service is worse.
