Check Your Leather

Picked up my holsters that were in closet.45 belt holster was hard as a brick! Checked the others and they were fine.....Bianchi or SafariLand......the quality of leather does make a big difference! Spent a hour with saddle soap and even the 45 holster....unknown hand made are fine once again.Dang it, I check these often.

Thumbs up

Yeah I found a fillet knife of mine the other day with a leather sheath that was hard as a rock. Saddle soap saved it, but you do have to keep an eye on them now and then. Weird thing is this is a factory sheath and it hardened up. Laying right beside it was a old butcher knife in a sheath that I made when I was six out of saddle leather. The old saddle leather sheath is still just as fine as the day I made it.

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." - 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan 1911-2004

All good points

I keep after my leather slings, holsters and boots with Neatsfoot Oil and Mink Oil. Those products really work. All the best...
