Re: New holster is stiff
Make the inside of the holster wet, oil up the handgun verry well on the outside and put it in the holser and allow it to dry. When you put the gun in the holster, push it in hard so the tight spot at the cylinder is stretched a tiny bit. After repeated drawing and holstering will lossen it up till it is a smoth draw. You do not want a sloppy fit, it should be tight to a reasonable degree. I know guy who vaseline the inside of the holster, but I don't recommend that because it will forever hold any dirt that gets inside the holster.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
