    H.B.E.- Great experience... Superb craftsmanship

    I just picked up my "DC" holster from Eric at HBE and let me say that I couldn't be happier with it. I have been wearing it around all day and I never would have imagined it could be so comfortable to wear a holster that conceals that well.

    Working with Eric was great, I'm a newb to CCW and didn't really know what I would need in a holster. Eric was great, he sat down with me and we talked for well over an hour discussing the holster as well as him giving me pointers on CCW in general.

    The really amazing part is that he was able to do it all in just 4 days... you can't beat that. His customer service is some of the best I've ever seen, not only did he make the whole process as easy as possible but on the day I picked it up he called me that evening just to see how it was fitting and if everything was working as I had hoped. Talk about above and beyond... If anybody is looking for a custom holster you should definitely give him a call...

    Real nice looking rig. Very sweet.
    Eric has been doing some super fine leather work.
    His delivery times have been great these days and his recent customers have all been extremely pleased with his craftsmanship and his willingness to help newer carry folks select a proper carry rig.
    I am really quite proud of the way he is now running his business.
    I'm happy to have him back producing exceptional holsters in such a timely fashion. He is an incredibly talented person.

    That is a nice set up.
    I love my IWB from Eric. He is a great builder and a heck of a nice guy.

    Well...thanks for the kind words. I really really appreciate it....I hope it works well for you. That little 10mm cannon should carry pretty well and let me add that local guys that I use their weapon get that kind of turn around time.
    Std. is about the same as everyone else....1-2 weeks ARO.
    I DONT want to keep anyone's carry gun for any length of time.

    Thanks again for the kind words..........Shoot well and god bless

    +1 to the compliments for Eric's work, and for the way he does business. I love my Com III for Hi-Power, shown in this thread: http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...-pictures.html

    I recently ordered a Com III from Erik for my S&W 3913 after checking out his web site. The craftsmanship was so impressive, I submitted HBEleatherworks for inclusion on the holster page. He's listed there now if you want to check out some superb leather.

    Good looking rig. Being in Utah I need to get a hold of him.

    Sorry actually I can't... I ordered it in person and he had a bunch laid out so I just picked the color I wanted... I looked on his site to see if I could narrow it down but there seems to be several similar variations. Eric may pop back on and you could ask him or maybe even PM him. If you just ask him about the glock 29 rig he did for Craig he should be able to get you squared away.

    If your thinking about getting one I can't recommend him strongly enough. My brother and I just picked up his "DC" for his XD this afternoon and it is just as awesome. His is done in black so I'll try to pry it away from him long enough to take a picture...

    How are you guys ordering. I really want to place an order, but not sure how as his site isn't setup to take online orders. Do you guys just call him? I really like his DC Tuckable, but want to make one slight change to it. I'll be honest and say I haven't tried calling. Just curious what method you guys are using to order

    I'd highly recommend giving him a call. You can email him but with as many options and variations as there are it'd probably be easiest over the phone. He knows his stuff and will definitely get you squared away.
