Well it's official I can finally start carrying now that I have my Old Faithful holster. I haven't really tried it on but putting it together was simple. I may have to tweak things once I start using it. I do worry about the t-nuts on the backside as I couldn't sink them completely into the leather backing. Anyone have any tips? I look forward to using it and I hope it is comfortable to use every day.

I started putting mine together last night as well and I had a little trouble with that as well. You might want to try drilling a small hole in a board that is planed and line that hole up with a hole in the holster and hit it with a rubber Mallet

In the bag of parts there should have been a square piece of leather with a hole in the center. When assembling the holster and pounding the t-nuts from the backside, you would have the square piece of leather between your work surface and the holster so that the "pin" of the t-nut is lined up with the hole in the leather so as to allow you to sufficiently hit the t-nut into the leather til it's flush. Hope that helps.

If my verbal explanation wasn't clear, their instructional video is helpful.

I tried that and it did not seem like there was a lot of resistance when you pounded on it.

Use the leather provided as stated by others. Also use a hammer, rather than a rubber mallet as the video suggests.
You *WILL* want those t-nuts seated, otherwise you'll feel them on your hip / side.
I've had mine for a week or two now and am still in love with it. Still waiting for it to break in a touch more before I locktite the bolts.

I found using a flat tipped screwdriver and driving the leather into the t nut from the front secured it well.

Did you use the extra piece of leather with the hole in it to hammer the nuts in?
Also,when you screw in the screws,it will pull it into the leather a little bit also...
