    Wore New H.B.EHolster,2nd time,With Snake Skin Grips and Bumpers Today,im getting use

    Man That Eric Larson sure knows how to make a comfortable holster.
    I wore my rig to Sam's Wholesale and Guns and Leather and I didn't spend 1 cent in there.
    No more Guns for this boy this year,that's for sure.
    Nothing but some ammo, now and then & when I can find it. lol...












    The bumpers aren't that bad once you get use to looking at them,well to me anyway,you all can feel free to voice your opinion about what you think of them,but they kinda grow on you after awhile.Anyway its a nice change of pace.....

    Great looking Rig, Mitch!

    The base pads really give your 1911 that "retro" look. I recall them being pretty popular in the 80s.

    I remember placing [heavy] solid brass pads (like yours) on some of my mags. Man, those mags would fall out of the well like greased lightning.

    Tn Mitch,

    Nice looking set-up.

    My compliments on your photo sizes. Nicely done, ideal size.

    Now if others would follow your lead...


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Thumbs up

    Nice grips. Yep, HBE makes a real nice carry rig.

    I usually tell folks to carry with the "in firearm" magazine having no slam pad since having extra .25" or .50" jutting out the butt serves no real purpose except providing more firearm butt to possibly "print."
    Save the magazines with the slam pads for your extra where having base pads will serve the purpose of insuring easier and more positive insertion.

    slight threadjack: Flush mag in the gun and bumpers on reloads. I've seen guys carrying with that philosophy and did it myself until I ran into a doublefeed at a match. If you have a double feed and a flush mag, just what exactly are you going to grab on to strip the mag out? I have minimal baseplates on the in-gun mag and extended baseplates on reloads precisely so I can get the mag out if it's stuck.

    I'd prefer 800 wide rather than 600 myself...for detail.

    Very nice. ERic's rigs are nice. Ordered one for my boyfriend a few weeks back.
