Holster Does Not Sit Low Enough, Gun too Large?

Holster Does Not Sit Low Enough, Gun too Large?

The holster sizes are designed around specific firearms ensuring a proper fit and smooth draw. When properly fitted in our holster the firearm should sit just below the waistline keeping it comfortable in a relaxed position while still leaving enough of the grip accessible during retrieval for a quick draw. When completely broken in the leather will expand 1/4" - 1/2" in overall size. 


The high-quality saddle grade leather we use for our holsters does require a break-in period. Most customers tell us that after 2-3 days the holster is quite comfortable. Typical break-in periods are 3-5 days of continual use; however, it can take 1-2 weeks for the leather to fully expand and form around the firearm. Once the leather begins to form it will also make for a better, more comfortable fit, provide more coverage (against printing), and a smoother draw. 


When seated, if you feel any poking or gnawing from the grip simply nudge or push the holster down further (below the belt or location a belt would be located).  This simple gesture should ease any potential discomfort.  


If the holster is adequately broken in and you are still uncomfortable with its location contact us by phone 888-661-5579, eMail, or through the website (and select “Holster Size Question” on the dropdown Subject Line to help expedite the request) so we can ensure you a proper fit.
