    Yup that is exactly the advice that Sam Andrews gave me when a similar thing happened after I bought one of his holsters. Also I recommend a product produced and sold by Mitch Rosen called LEATHER LIGHTNING. It works. Expensive for such a small amount of the stuff, but it works.

    I have been using KG 9 Leather Kote which seems to be the same as Rosen's Leather Lightning. It is much cheaper however. I use it to stop squeak and to smooth the draw on tight holsters.

    I hate to say this, but the last time I bought Leather Lightning from Rosen, it was exactly the same price as for the KG Coat and for the same size jar. But it's been 2 or 3 years since I last bought it.

    The price was the same, but Rosens was for less than 1/2 oz, while the KG 9 was for 2 oz.

    I don't know if Rosen has increased the size of his bottle.

    No, I think you're right. It was a miniscule amount of liquid.
