Stranger, I too had a VMII for my SA. The comfort level was good but the HBE is MUCH better. If you look at the design of the COM III it does a great job of dispercing the pressure over a greater area and that is what I believe makes it such a comfortable holster. Talk to Eric and see if you can figure out the right set up (cant, position ect.) If after trying it out with a good belt and don't like it you can sell it pretty close to what you paid for it. Good luck!
