    "Breakin in", Brommeland

    We gun people surely know how to turn it up a notch (with Volume), when it comes to feeding our fine investments, wouldn't you agree Mr. Brommeland? Here's a pic or two of my New additions in the "Breaking In" process. Thanks Gary and Remy for the fine craftsmanship!!

    Thumbs up Beautiful Leather !

    Don't use the Waxed Paper that you had your bologna sandwich wrapped in!
    Tear off a fresh sheet.

    Think Gary B. knows what he's doing when it comes to making Deluxe Leather Gun Diapers?

    Beautiful Holster & Accessory Leather!
    Congratulations on your Finest Gunleather Purchase ~ wear it in good health.

    Does the wax paper really work well for protecting finishes?

    Great lookin' rig!

    It seems just fine, but you would have to ask Gary Brommeland about that. In my own view a little holster wear on your weapon just adds personality.

    Howdy!
    The wax paper does nothing to protect the finish of your firearm - it is intended to speed up the breaking in process of the holster.
    An old guy told me something long ago about carry guns - his advice was to take whatever gun you're gonna carry and throw it across a gravel parking lot a couple of times. (The idea being that you should not worry about a carry gun's finish, because whatever you do to protect it, it will still show wear over time.)
    While I think that his advice was a bit extreme, the truth is that you carry a gun to protect you - not the gun. If you want to protect the gun, then keep it in the safe. Carry weapons will get dinged up, and that is a simple fact of life.
    We do have the flesh side of our leather pasted in order to minimize "holster wear" as much as possible, but you are going to get wear on anything that you carry, in any type of holster. This is one of those things that ya just gotta come to terms with.
    I don't know if I've helped you or not. Please give us a call if you have any further questions. Good luck!

    On older weapons I agree, my first colt(see my photos) has a LOT of character, it was someones EDC for about 30 years before I found it.

    It's not that I'm "Affraid" to ding up my carry gun, I know perfectly well that carry wear happens, one of my former Paras was thourghly beaten up after only 1 year. Wear happens. I was just wondering what the purpose of the wax paper was.

    The wax paper expands the external dimensions of the firearm slightly without changing the gun's profile. This serves to ever so slightly stretch the holster out to the point in which a perfect fit to your particular firearm is achieved. A secondary benefit is that it also deposits a little bit of wax inside the holster, which slicks up the draw.
    Here's a link to my "care and feeding" page, which explains the process in more detail:

    My MaxConV just keeps getting better. I've had it for about a month now and it is conforming to my shape very nicely. You just can't get this kind of comfort from kydex.
    I am also amazed that such thin leather is able to hold its shape perfectly and give a super fast draw. It even gives a similar "locked in" feeling that kydex holsters give when the pistol is fully seated while re-holstering.
    All this and a price that just can't be beat. If you haven't already, get yourself one of these holsters!!
