Just use the plastic bag the holster came in. Place your gun in the bag and then holster. Let 'er sit for a couple days. Works like a charm!

Even after you wrap the gun and let it sit in the Hume OT holster for however many days, it's still a good idea to strap it on and do a bunch of presentations/draws/in-n-out/what have you. Once the holster is strapped on, the leather wings with the slots flex and tighten up on the weapon enough that additional breaking in is necessary.

Thanks to all for the advice.
ChrisM...... I have done that, using the zip sack that the holster came in, like you suggested... Will see what gives.
DanM.... yes, I found that out, so I used a zip tie in the loops to pull the bat wings into the holster.
Again, thanks to all. I IWB with my C-Tac more than OWB, even though can OWB here, but too many sheeple's So prefer to be CC. But still wanted a nice leather holster along with my Sherpa from Blackhawk, that I use in inclement weather.

Good thing I came across this thread. I have my first Hume holster on the way for one of my guns. My other leather holsters are okay just putting the gun in the holster and letting sit for 24 hours, and lots of repetitions of drawing.

They should work. Think of it as boots. I wear thick wool socks with my new boots for the first couple of days to help form the leather. The same principle goes with your gun and the leather holsters.
