    Heavy Oil On Holster

    I just bought a leather holster and it is saturated with oil. I have set it in front of a space heater to sweat the oil out and sponge it up, but it is still saturated. How can I get rid of the heavy oil so I don't have a slippery grip on my gun?

    Good luck with that; at age 10 I spilled about a cup of neat's foot oil on my baseball glove and it took years to dry out.......

    Probably the worst thing you can do to a holster is expose it to an intense heat source like a heater, this ruins the leather.
    By oil, do you mean motor or lubricating oil? If so, the holster is ruined, especially if saturated.
    Otherwise, you might try several applications of saddle soap, letting it air dry between treatments. My best recommendation is to buy another holster that is not saturated in oil???

    If it is brand new, I would send it back and find a different holster maker.

    If it is used, most likely it is junk.

    Hope it works out.

    It is made by Hunter and they are all like that.

    Pack it in "SpeediDry" inside and out and hope for the best. I have a Hunter shoulder rig for a H&R .22 I used to carry when hunting and it worked well for it's price and purpose. Not a top-quality brand but it held my revolver in place like I wanted it.
