    it's not a mouse

    ok so, I got a new belt for concealment.
    It is a galco holster belt designed for carry.
    With it i use a BlackHawk 3 Slot Leather Pancake Holster. It works well.
    It is quite comfortable compared to dickeys work belts let me tell you.
    The problem is it squeeks like a brand new saddle in the fourth of july parade.
    People must be wondering where all that squeeking is coming from.
    How long will this go on?

    Oil it. Neat's-foot oil, SnowShoe Dressing, Red-Wing Boot Oil (my favorite) are all good, as are Fiebings Leather Balm and many other leather dressings. If you use a cream or other heavier dressing, you may need to use a hair drier to warm (on low - just warm it, don't heat it!) the dressing to let it penetrate; if you use an oil apply it thoroughly over the surface, wipe off the excess, and let what it keeps set/absorb overnight. Wipe it off/buff it with a dry rag the next day. Some treatments may _slightly_ darken the leather, but very little, and leather will darken with use and exposure so this will actually make it more stable anyways. You may want to do the same to the belt as it really does prolong the life of the leather. Repeat at least once a year (more if your gear gets a lot of heat/sweat/salt) and your investment will last for years of good service.
    Tandy Leather/Leather Factory is a great resource for random questions about leather goods. So is a Red-Wing Shoe Store.

    Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
    Because I can't find a source of 250 gr!

    You can also use Galco Leather Lotion.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Watch out that the mice don't follow you home.
    Before you try oiling it (since if you overdo that it might soften the belt too much)....I would try rubbing some Talcum Powder into the stitching and see if that helps. Sometimes it does.

    Yep, try the powder, not the oil!

    I concur. Baby powder works great till the holster works itself in.

    I would have never thought of that - thanks for a great suggestion.
