Q: My holster arrived and is a very tight fit. What should I do?
A: If the retention of the gun is too tight for your personal preference, you can attempt the following:
1. Wrap your empty gun in a couple of layers of saran/cling wrap, ensuring the gun is covered.
2. Run the holster under warm water until you feel the leather begin to soften. Primarily run the interior of the holster under the water. (Normally this only takes a few seconds.)
3. Place the gun into the holster. Using your finger tips, mold around the shape of the gun. The basic outline has already been done for you.
4. Let the holster/gun set up dry (approx 3-6 hours).
5. Remove the gun from the holster and allow it to finish drying (generally overnight). Remove the saran wrap from your gun after removing it from the holster.
6. Once the holster is completely dry, test drawing your gun.
7. If you find drawing the gun is still too tight, please remember the leather will soften a certain extent, as well as the contact/rub points between your gun and the holster will slicken up more as the gun is drawn/placed into the holster. If it is still too tight for your preference, then repeat steps 1 through 6, and add a couple of more layers of saran/cling wrap. And, as always, you can return the holster to us, and we would be more than happy to do the process for you.
