Just ordered my first Leather holster, I have kept away from Leather holsters since I was worried after them getting wet due to sweating and causing problems. Anyway I am getting a Bianchi 100 Professional Belt Holster Right Hand Black Bersa Thunder Leather. If I don't like it, it will go in my Holster draw......

Just use saddle soap on your leather, at least once a year. I have gear, saddle, saddle bags, head stall and other gear that's made with leather that is over 20 years old. (My saddle was made in the 60ies) All my gear is in great shape and it's all been through years of rain and snow.

Does "saddle soap" also soften the leather? I thought I remember it being recommended for leather holsters that were too tight when new. I guess you'd wanna be careful so as not to make the holster too soft so as to lose some of its retention properties, eh?

Mornin robhic,
Saddle soap will make leather softer, but not limp. The soap in the can (like in the picture) is better then the spray. Don't be afraid to put some on. My friend and neighbor is doing his saddle and he wasn't using enough. Leather will even feel better when done. I also use it on wood, my walkin stick before, after, My Smoke pole, as well as leather. A holster and my saddle.

Remove the gun from the holster each day and wipe it down with a chamois lightly sprayed (and I DO mean LIGHTLY) with Rem-Oil.
