I love tinkering, and also being self-reliant. I made an IWB holster out of leather (if I recall it was 6-8 ounce, vegetable tanned cowhide. Wet and molded to my pistol). Rough side is on the inside. I love it, it is comfortable and functional. I carry a Kimber full sized Target II in it. However it sucks the oil off my pistol, dries it right up. I worry a little that long-term this might not be great for the pistol, (body moisture, etc). What do you you guys do? Should I oil the leather? Line the next one I make? Any thoughts are appreciated.
( I did use a web-site photo for ideas for the holster. Hope I have not infinged on anyones patents!? By no stretch of the imagination do I have any "commercial" intentions with my leatherwork!)
