I'd really love to have Sparks VM II ,but the cost and wait are concerns. I've noticed that HBE has a holster rather similar to the VM II and can be had for about $35 less. I know that only costs a nickle more to go first class, but I can reload quite a few 40S&W's for $35.The holster would be for a Sig 239.Any input would be great.

Eric Larsen, the "E" of HBE is a member of this forum, and I'm sure that he'd be glad to answer any questions that you have. One of his models is the second highest rated holster on Rig Rate.

I don't own an HBE rig yet, but I have seen many examples of his work on the net and read many first hand reports of satisfied customers. I would consider his work as first class.

I have had HBE leather, and the only reason I don't still have it is that it was part of a package deal when I had to sell the pistol. My wife has a COMIII from Eric, and it is first class. We still have the IWB rig he made for her Witness Compact, and it is also one of the nicest custom jobs around. You may wait a while, but it's worth it!
Someday I'll get ahead, and get a COMIII for my PO1, as well - anticipation....

Lightning Arms Sports usually has VM-II's available for immediate shipment. Can't do anything about the price, but if you need it quick, they seem to be good folk.

I don't own any of Eric's holsters yet, but I have seen them first hand. They are first class. I have holsters from Sparks, Alessi, and Garrity which I love and Eric's would rate up there for me.

I'm still waiting on an HBE rig, going on 16 weeks now and past the second "it'll go out within a week"... so if it ever does get here, I hope it is what people say. I had no idea I'd essentially be giving out a 3+ month loan when I ordered.

Actually Manchicken, youre gonna get two.....the first is done and would be shipped but it turned out to have a tad too much cant. Had a bad "angle day" or something. The one to your specs will be done on Monday and they both will ship then....I made you wait too long....so you can play with them both.
Hope that helps......
Shoot well.......Eric

I got one. I love it. Good things come to those that wait. I had to wait a while for mine.
He quoted me 10-12 weeks before mine would be ready. It's now week 11 and I'm salivating every day waiting on the mail lady (and certainly not b/c she's hot!!...The UPS lady...now that's another story. :wink: ) lol...I can't wait to get my hands on it. I ordered a black Com 3 tuckable with shark trim and 11* cant. Hope it doesn't go too far past 12 weeks though b/c I'm expecting a transfer at any time and don't want to play mail tag with my holster! lol

Please don't misunderstand...

Please don't misunderstand me Mr. Larsen. I'm not complaining. I'm just anxious to get my hands on your work is all. Right now all I have is a Fobus roto holster and that kinda limits my choices of clothes for concealability (luckily my shoulders are broader than my hips so it hides ok). The bureau is usually slow about making you move whenever they transfer you so all should be fine. I just didn't want you to think that I was knocking you, your work, or your lead time. :smile:
