The model DB-S is a redesign of the DB-1 to include a security strap with thumb break, for Michael deBethencourt - Chief Trainer of Snubtraining.com .As a result of Department Policy Michael needed a holster with retention when working as a LEO and Police Investigator and the DB-S Holster was our solution. When on the job, the DB-S is Michaels holster of choice. The only difference between the DB-S and DB-1 is the security strap.
Like the DB-Mac and DB-1 the DB-S was designed to distribute and balance the revolvers weight with perfection, making the heaviest of revolvers feel "weightless" and allowing all day carry comfort. The DB-S like most of our holsters was also designed to securely carry the revolver at a neutral cant, with the cylinders top and bottom aligned with the belts top and bottom - to provide a fast, natural, ergonomic draw.
