    DC Special from HBE - I love it!

    I just got this bad boy in yesterday and it is awesome. The fit and craftsmanship is surperb. I have a Glock 26 and asked Eric to cut it for a G19. My 26 fits in it perfect and I can use the same holster when I get a G19 or 23.

    Be careful using the shorter gun in there. The leather will collapse and you may not get the same retention / mess up a nice holster.

    Thanks! I got the "FBI" Cant which is 15 degrees. I carry it at 3 O'Clock. I just got this one but I have a simular holster with clips made by someone else for my M&P and I carry it at 3 O'clock as well.
    3:30 sometimes depending on the pants I'm wareing so the clip doesn't go over a belt loop. Both holsters are rock solid and do NOT move at all once clipped into position.

    Great looking holster. Gotta love an HBE. Mine came in yesterday for my 1911. Wore it all night and love it already. Think we both did good!

    Right on! Congrats! Let's see a picture of yours.
    I've had it on all day and it is very comfortable. The break in is going to be a breeze.

    Congrats! I just got a call from Eric today asking for payment as he is going to cut my holster first thing in the morning. He said I should have it in a week. I can't wait! I never imagined that I could have a COM III this quickly.

    Since I have been carrying my J Frames full time now, I needed an IWB option because God knows that a Renegade Ankle Holster, Desantis Pancake Holster, and Mika Pocket holster wasn't enough options.

    I'll post some pictures of my Black Cherry HBE COM III when it comes in.

    Hey Cajun, It's blowing 45 mph here and dark. Will take a few pics tomorrow outside. Wore mine all afternoon and actually like the steel clips better than the snaps. Comfort is the word for this holster. It sticks like glue once you strap it on. Another A for Eric from me!

    Cajun, Here is mine. Already put a scuff on it for character. Three days now of afterwork wear and really love the rig. With my HBE belt on it is not only invisable but extremely comfortable while carrying. Had to throw my Cold Steel in for effect.
