You can use some CRC Silicone spray to slick it up a bit, won't hurt the holster or the gun.

Actually, most silicones will hurt the holster. The evaporation process of the associated propellants dries out the natural oils in the leather and it will cause premature aging....cracking...etc.
Wrap it in wax paper for a night and then just use it. The best way to break in a holster is to simply use it.

Use it via drawing and wearing it like Eric said.

This is a good time to practice some drawing and dry firing drills. Help with the reflexes and it will help with the break in process. Stay safe.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Thanks for the help!

I agree with Mike, the practice does double duty for a new holster.
