The Vega Inside The Pant Molded Leather Holster is available at the Eagle Imports again. The price is $55.00 plus $12.00 shipping and I received mine today. This is the third holster I've purchased for the Firestorm. I've already returned a Crossbreed, and the Galco I bought is sitting in a box in the closet.

The Vega is a quality product. It's about a slim as a leather holster can be but I have to admit that it's a very tight fit for my Firestorm. The "retention" is definitely there and I've been working the pistol in and out to loosen it up. I won't carry with it until I have it broken in a bit more and am confident I can get the pistol easily out of the leather if needed. So if you're looking for a holster designed to fit the Bersa, this is a good choice.

As I mentioned previously, the Bersa holster was very stiff. After more than a couple of hundred draws, working the pistol in and out, the holster still had too much friction and wasn't breaking in. I decided to try heating it with a blow dryer. That worked! I heated the pistol and the holster, inserted the pistol all the way into the holster, and left them to cool down slowly. It took two applications but now the gun fits nicely and the draw is smooth.

Hadn't thought of that , so thanks for the idea on heating the holster it with a blow dryer. In the past, when having difficulty I have given both the gun and the inside of the holster a heavy application of "Finish Line" lube and left the gun in the holster overnight. Repeated when necessary. Next time I will try the blower idea.
