Maintenance of the Holsters.
How to Break In Your Holster
If the holster is too tight when you receive it, place the gun in a baggie (like a sandwich bag, or zip-top bag), then insert the gun into the holster. Let it set for a minute or two, then remove the gun and take it out of the bag. Reinsert the gun and see if the retention is to your liking. If not, repeat this process until you’re happy with the retention, slowly adding to the amount of time you leave the bagged gun in the holster until the gun is easy enough to remove from the holster. Do not add any oils to your holster to soften it up, as this could over-soften the leather and damage the holster or its acrylic finish.
How to Clean and Maintain Your Holster
Your leather holster has been sealed inside and out with a quality acrylic-based sealer and will need minimal care and maintenance throughout its service life. When it becomes necessary to clean your holster, uses a damp cloth rubbed in a little bit of saddle soap until it forms lather, and then gently rub the surface of the leather with the lather. Gently wipe off with a soft cloth. If the lather builds up in the stitch holes or other areas, gently brush the excess away with a soft brush (like an old tooth brush or shoe polish brush). Be careful to avoid the over-application of water. The holster can also be cleaned with quality leather lotion, following the instructions on the product label. To dry the holster, place it in front of a fan – do not use heat to dry your holster.
To restore the shine to your holster and to help protect it from moisture and wear, you can apply a neutral shoe polish or paste wax according to the instructions on the product label.
