    Question Anyone have any experience with this Company?

    The company is R Grizzle Leather

    They have some nice looking rigs, and most importantly, they list the G21SF w/ Picatinny Rail specifically as a "Yes, we make holsters for that" gun!

    Never thought I'd see the day...

    Anyhoo, I'm going to be taking the plunge here soon on a real, no kidding, leather holster for my weapon, and they look good so far. IWB leather doesn't "collapse" easily, does it?

    Any thoughts?

    Also:

    FIST Inc. says that they make holsters for my troublesome piece as well, and I'm going to try to get their Driving Holster (doubles as a crossdraw holster). Do their holsters stand up to a good beating? Sorry, but I am notoriously hard on my gear. I don't try to be, quite the opposite in fact. It just works out that way.

    One last:

    I know it has been covered ad nauseum, but how again do you break in a leather holster? I'm mostly a Kydex man, and I've never had to do it. The Galco came pre-set, so to speak...

    I've seen him talked about on Sig Forum, and it was all good. I'm looking at picking up one of his rigs asap ($ pending). If you go for it, give us a review. His stuff looks great!

    I just ordered a mag pouch for $25. I've been looking for one for a while now, so I guess I'll give this guy a try.

    Most leather shouldn't need a break in. If it's too tight for a comfortable draw, wrap your gun in a couple layers of cling wrap (just to add a touch of thickness) and leave it in the holster for a couple of days. That will stretch it.

    Kevin at K&D holsters suggests lightly wetting the leather before stretching it, but I've seen other makers say specifically not to get it wet. So, if you end up with a tight-fitting holster, ask the maker what he recommends.

    FWIW, I have had two leather holsters, one from K&D and the other from UBG, and neither needed any sort of break-in.
