    Pictures? I think I have one of the hong around here somewhere. I'll wait until after Christmas though. It might be considered sacrilege or something. Glad you asked. Thank you.

    Everyone is familiar with the term "holster wear" or areas of a firearm's finish show wear due to rubbing the holster.
    The holster came with isopropyl alcohol and instructions. Basically, put the pistol in a plastic bag and spray the area(s) of contact with the isopropyl alcohol. Both where the pistol rubbed and the thumb break now fit perfectly.


    Hopefully, this will be of help to those who carry with a leather holster.
    Hi, can you explain this to me a bit more? What exactly does the isopropyl do to the leather?

    I do, and have done, a great deal of leather work. However, being self taught, I don't know all the tricks that a formal leathercrafting education might impart.

    Thanks.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.
