    HBE Speciality Leatherworks

    Just received a new custom holster from Eric at HBE. I'm sure some forum members are familiar with the company but I wanted to add my 2 cents. Terrific holster, thin, light and from what I can tell, well constructed with the pistol fitting nicely. The holster is hand boned and dyed so perhaps the only critisim I might have is a slight color variation in the dye throughout the holster. Personally I like the effect; it sets it apart from mass-produced holsters and allows it that "custom" look. The site has a wide selection of holsters and is worth a look for anyone seeking something a little different.

    I am awaiting 2 more holsters from another custom manufacturer, Horseshoe Leather Products. Located in the UK but allows payment in USD. Again, looks like a one-man band dedicated to the production of fine quality holsters. Will update when I receive them.

    Congrats.
    Eric always did make some beautiful and great fitting holsters.
    It was mighty tough getting ahold of one of them for a while.
    But, he is really doing it right these days.

    I already had holsters for the various firearms that I'd place custom orders for so I wasn't in that much of a hurry to receive them. I think if I didn't have a alternative, I'd be anxiously checking the mail each day. If you order a quality custom holster, the wait is well worth it. Andy at Horseshoe specifies very clearly that he is back-ordered. I wrote him and advised that I already had a Ross, Galco and Crossbreed to use in the meantime so not to hurry or worry.

    I have three of Erics' holsters. A big +1 to HBE leather.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    I've owned 5 of Erics holsters. They were/are all very high quality rigs. He's also a good man!

    I'm so glad to hear positive things about Eric and HBE. I'm expecting my first one from him early next week, so this is great news.
    He sounds like a great guy on the phone, very real and down to earth, just wants to make the best holster for YOU, not what he thinks you should wear. I liked that.

    I have two from Eric. They are great. I would caution you that if you have an idea for a custom color or style, send him a picture. If you e-mail it, he will not see it since he reads his e-mail on a Blackberry. He'll make what he thinks you want, which may not be what you actually were thinking.
    The quality is first class.

    I have two. One of the best things is that they are so thin. They really work well with my Kahr P9.

    I recently obtained a great IWB holster from Eric for my PF9. It's comfortable, conseals well and is top quality. I would certainly recommend HBE leather to everyone. This one is black leather and sharkskin.

    Just got my holster from HBE today. The man surely knows what he is doing. The holster is light, yet supports the gun well. The color I chose is black, and, contrary to what I've heard, the dye is consistent throughout the entire thing. A nice, deep, soft yet resilient black. Tucks perfectly. Very reasonable prices too. If there's a better holster, regardless of cost, I'd sure like to see it. (I'm sure y'all have had great holsters, and I'm not putting down your choice if it wasn't HBE. I'm just saying I am impressed.)

    Which holster did you get. I have the COM III.

    Yes, well made custom holsters are worth both the price and the wait but this seems to be one of the hardest points drive into the thick skulls of.....
