Very nice! I'm wearing a HBE right this moment as well.
This is a discussion on New HBE Holster within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I am fairly new to CCW and my first IWB holster was a single clip design. Uncomfortable, kept moving around, I had to constantly re-adjust ...
I am fairly new to CCW and my first IWB holster was a single clip design. Uncomfortable, kept moving around, I had to constantly re-adjust the thing.
After seeing pics of Sportsterguys new HBE Com III holster a few weeks ago, I called Eric. I was wanting the exact holster for my Glock 27. In nearly record time, I have a gorgeous Com III holster and double magazine holder. I just sent payment Saturday evening. Today, Thursday morning, a package arrives...no way that it's my holster...already? Indeed it's my holster.
I cannot compliment Eric enough. Professional businessman and a true artist with leather.
The holster and magazine carrier are perfect. Flawless workmanship and design. My employees who aren't gun people were amazed at the beauty of the leather. The comfort amazed me. Perfect fit. Compared to the previous (single point clip) holster that I wore, this thing is comfortable and stays stable.
My pictures do not do this beautiful leather justice.

He has been doing some super fine leather work. Congrats on a getting a real nice leather rig for yourself.

Nice going, that's a great rig. Talk about hitting a home run your second time at bat!

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
That's not fair. Aren't you supposed to accumulate a whole box of holsters before you're allowed to get a really good one?
But, seriously, that is one excellent rig. I've got a COM III and mag pouch on order with Eric for my Hi-Power. He's a great guy to deal with, and I'm thrilled that he's got his business turned around.

His holsters are looking better than ever.
I really love that exact style and colors that you have.
I'd like to see a second set of stitching next to the gun personally just for the look, but I am sure he would do it if ya asked. (I prefer Rafter S belts for this same double stitched look)
Akatim, Looks like Eric did you right!!!! Beautiful set to put it mildly!! Have mine on now with my HP and it is KA. Been wearing it constantly and it gets more comfy every day. Glad you love it. Stay safe and enjoy your new leather that shouldn't see a box for a long, long time.

Is that cow or horse?
Looks like a winner, hands down. I like the color contrast. Eric does really nice work!
Congrats on a great first custom rig.
It's made of cow in cordovan brown with the shark trim in black. It looks better in person, I just can't take pics worth crap.
I bet he would double stitch. Eric was great to deal with, he went beyond my expectations.
I don't see how it possibly could. It looks just about as good as leather can look in those photos. Very handsome.It looks better in person, I just can't take pics worth crap.
That cordovan shark combo just looks great... The shark he gets has such a nice grain in it. Congrats sir. Shameless pic of my black on black combo.
Great looking set you have there! I notice that your holster has the double stiching on the threads next to the gun. The shark grain does look awesome.
Did you get the belt from Eric too?
Basic question. If this is an IWB holster, why would you put the exotic skins on it, when you would never see it (as it would be covered up by your pants). I could understand why you would do it for an OWB (even though only you would know it was there if you were concealing).
BTW, I have spent last month looking at all of the holster makers and finally decided on going with HBE. I'll be placing my order with him in the next week.
That there is one fine looking rig my friend..
