OK.. How many quality holsters do you have that retain so well that you can't effectively draw the pistol??? I have several that I've been trying to break in for a year or two and no matter what I try they're almost impossible to draw from. I've now accepted that if the holster doesn't break-in in a week or so and/or after wrapping the pistol in plastic, wax paper etc.. it's just not going to do it on its own.. To that end, I've researched products that might aid with the useability of the holster. The most likely candidate is of course a PTFE product in some sort of transport agent. Mitch Rosen offers a product called Leather Lightning for $12 + $2 S&H. They don't list the size of the bottle however I've been advised it's about 1/2oz. I was also advised that the KG product seems to be the same product with 2ozcosting $12.95 + $5.95 S&H from Brownell's. Others indicated that it wouldn't take much to treat a holster, so i opted for the 2oz KG Products Leather-Kote. After arrival I discover the container to be about half full as the marketers seem to prefer, but otherwise it appears to be a very fine PTFE in suspension. I've mixed and used gallons of this stuff while working in materials (polymer) engineering and it appears to be the real thing For my first test I choose my Milt Sparks Axiom, a wonderfully built holster but near impossible to withdraw the holster. Having been advised to use the product judiciously, I wet one fingertip and massaged it into the critical areas of the holster (i.e. trigger guard and muzzle). After allowing the product to dry overnight, the next mornings testing with my Baer Stinger showed some improvement, however the holster was still far from useable. Next I coated to fingers and rubbed it into the entire inside of the holster. Taking care to wet ever part of the surface and rub in well.. The next day I tried the holster and it was in fact withing the window us useability. Feeling more confident of the product and less concerned about overdoing it, I treated all my problematic holsters and they're now in the drying stage. I'll let everybody what happens next.. Cheers.. Ron PS.. The only leather products I didn't treat were the Tucker Gunleather holsters and mag carriers.. They don't heed it..
