So you’ve gone out and purchased the perfect leather handgun holster; only problem is it’s too snug and it is affecting your ability to smoothly and reliably draw your handgun.  The solution, stretching the leather holster to accomodate your weapon.  Here is the method I use.

  1. Begin by making sure the leather holster you purchase is designed for your model of handgun.  If it is, stretching it with the following method should maintain retention but allow for a smooth, quick draw of the handgun from the leather holster.
  2. Start by tightly pushing a hand towel into the leather holster to a width slightly larger than your handgun.  Work it around the inside of your leather holster.
  3. Leave the hand towel inside the leather holster overnight.
  4. The next day remove the hand towel from the leather holster.  The leather holster should now be stretched sufficiently to accomodate your handgun properly.
