This is my first custom made leather holster. Until now I was carrying my 23 in a CTAC(just bought it to hold me over until the leather got here). I can't wait to get home and try it. Looks like the CTAC will be going in the holster drawer. Looks very nice! The leather is pretty stiff tho. I guess just put the unloaded gun in it and then strap it on and wear it will loosen it up? Thanks Kevin for a great looking holster.
