Cylinder jams in holster after time
I recently bought an inexpensive pancake-style holster for my J-frame. I didn't plan to wear it often, so wasn't too worried about durability. Unfortunately, this holster has a strange (to me, at least) issue. Shortly after holstering, the draw is fine. Several hours later, drawing requires you to twist and wiggle the gun.
Inside the holster mouth is a spot where the cylinder is scraping the finish off the leather, even though I only wore this for about 4 days, and drew maybe 20 times. It appears that the leather is soft, and after a time it molds itself to the edge of the cylinder, making the draw difficult.
The shop is being difficult about exchanging it. Only the owner can authorize exchanging holsters. I left it there for him to see, and a week later stopped by to see if he'd made a decision--No, but he would call when he did. It has been another week, no call.
Is there anything I can do to eliminate this problem other than buying better leather next time?
