Frequently Asked Questions
 
  These are a compilation of responses to questions frequently asked me.  I hope you find answers to your questions here.  Where my opinions and conclusions are expressed please note that they are solely my opinions and conclusions and I will not take the time to respond to any debate or any disagreement about them.  When researching wallet holsters you may find that there exists many different opinions on the subject and on the various wallet holsters available.
 
 
Q:  Have you ever thought of adding a magazine holder to the holster?
A:  Yes and have made several but did not like them.  Too bulky and heavy with loaded magazine.  Will not be making them.  I have been sent photos of holsters that folks have found with the added magazine.  I still will not be making them.
Q:  Will you be making a holster for the Ruger LCP II ?
A:  NO. See Ruger LCP II Warning!

 Q:  Does the new custom Ruger LCP with the taller sights fit the holster for the Ruger LCP?
A:   I have received several inquiries since that version of the LCP has come out concerning the taller sights.  I do not have that version of the LCP but those that have purchased my LCP holster that have the newer LCP version have not reported any problems with the fit with the taller sights.  As far as I know then there is no problem with the custom Ruger LCP.

 Q:  Why don't you make left-handed wallet holsters for the Kahrs and the Kel-tec P3AT and P32?
A:  The Kahr Arms pistols have an unusually large slide-lock lever that sticks out on the left side of the pistol.  In a right-handed holster it is on the outside of the pocket not up against the back flap and doesn't affect the fit.  But when turned around for a left-handed holster this protrusion sticks out too much into the back flap and causes drawing problems and just doesn't fit well.
  With the Kel-tec P3AT and Kelt-tec P32 the magazine release button sticks out farther than on most other little pistols.  When it is in the left-handed holster position it contacts the back anti-print panel.  This causes the magazine to release while carrying it in the hip pocket.  The indention I make to accomadate this on my left-handed holsters has proven to be not deep enough with these Kel-tec pistols.  I have had reports of magazines releasing with my Kel-tec left-handed holsters so they are longer available.  I won't be making any future efforts to further modify my left-handed holsters to accomodate the Kel-tec pistols.  I have had no reports of this happening with Kel-tecs in my right-handed holsters.
  The Kel-tec P3AT with or without the Crimson Trace Laser does not work in my Ruger LCP left-handed holsters for this reason.

 Q:  When you draw do you put your index finger inside the trigger guard to extract the pistol?
A:  NOContrary to some reviews I have seen from folks that have not even used my holster I do not put my index finger inside the trigger guard to extract the pistol from the holster. My instructions page and my demonstration videos are clear on how I draw and none of the instructions or videos indicate that I draw with my index finger inside the trigger guard when in the holster. At one time I experimented with a draw that used the index finger inside the trigger guard behind the trigger but decided it was not a good safe way to draw and do not use it or recommend it.

 Q:  Is it safe to carry in my hip pocket?  Will it damage my pistol?
A:  It is my personal opinion that the little pistols that I made the wallet holster for are constructed with two important features that make it a safe pistol to pocket carry.  All of them have long trigger pulls which make it harder for them to be discharged by accidental trigger activation.  The other is that the hammer is recessed sufficiently to help keep the hammer from being hit and striking the primer and discharging the bullet.  Of course it doesn't make them 100 percent safe.  I have made further comment about safety and pistol damage that you may find helpful regarding these concerns. Click here to read
Q:  Will the holster fit in my pocket?
A:  The back of the Ruger LCP holster is 5-1/4 inches tall and 4-3/16 inches wide.  With a pistol in it the wallet holster is about 1 inch thick.  You may have to buy new pants with deeper pockets but before you do, try this.  Cut out the shape of the back of the wallet holster which is a rectangle from a piece of cardboard that is about 1/8 inch thick.  Round the corners and slightly bow the cardboard similar to the shape of a wallet.  Hold or tape your pistol to the cardboard so that the top of the pistol is even with the top of the cardboard using the photos in the gallery as a reference to the pistol's position.  Put it in the pocket you intend to use for carry.  This should give you a good idea of where the wallet holster and pistol may be carried.  After purchasing the wallet holster when shopping for new pants you can try your holster in the dressing room assuming you have your CCL.
Q:  What jeans do you wear or recommend that has a deep enough pocket for your holsters for the smaller .380 caliber pistols?
A:  I tried different jeans when I first started carrying in my back pocket.  Once I bought three pair of Lee jeans and my wife, who is a seamstress, cut off one pair for shorts and then she used the cut-off legs for material to replace the back pockets on all three pair with pockets about a half inch deeper.  The modification looked storebought and worked well.   However, when those wore out my wife declined to go to all that trouble again.  So, when my charm and begging failed, to the relief of my wife, I went on a search to find some jeans that would work as is.  I found some Wranglers at Walmart or Target that worked perfectly.  I have been wearing the Wranglers ever since.  I am wearing them in the demonstration videos.  The photo at the bottom of the home page is a good illustration of how well the Wranglers completely conceal the holster.  I would highly recommend that you purchase pre-washed or pre-shrunk jeans otherwise they might shrink enough after a few washings in hot water and dryed in a hot dryer that the pocket may no longer be deep enough.  My wife says she has hardly ever dryed my jeans in a hot dryer, rather hung-em up to dry even though they were pre-washed/pre-shrunk jeans when purchased.  Conseqently, my old Wranglers still conceal well in the hip pocket.  I have no information on other pants such as dress slacks and such.  I am a jeans guy. 
Q:  Will the wallet holster work in my front pocket?
A:   I have tried it in my front pocket and it seems to work well but I personally like it in my back pocket.  It does conceal the weapon, no printing of the pistol outline in the front pocket, looks like a wallet and you can draw well with it also.  The holster was designed, made and shaped to be carried in the hip pocket.  I am more used to it being in my hip pocket and I feel that I can draw and reholster it easier there.  I have gotten substantial postiive feedback about using it in the front pocket with the wallet holster and the CTL holster.  You might find that you like it in your front pocket.  UPDATE:  I have changed (2016) and currently wear LEVI 505 and the hip pocket just covers my wallet holster.  Take a look at this video.  Front Pocket Carry
Q:  I am not sure whether I should get a right or a left-handed wallet holster?
A:  I have found that when it comes to wallet holsters carried in the hip pocket there has been a little confusion with some folks as to which is a right-handed and which is a left-handed holster.  I discovered that some holster manufacturers differ as to how they label their holsters.  Before ordering PLEASE check out my video on Left and Right-handed holsters to be sure you are ordering the correct holster. Right or Left holster?

Q:  What is the Palm-In or Palm-Out drawing technique?
A:  It's where you draw from your hip pocket with the palm of your hand facing outward.  Very unsafe method of drawing.  I have a video that explains the technique in detail. Palm-in or Palm out? 

Q: Is there a reason why your wallet holsters are open at the bottom? I have read some opinions that the wallet holster should be closed to prevent lint and other obstructions from getting into the barrel.
 A:  I leave them open for these reasons.  One is that in my experience there has been no need to have my holster closed at the bottom.  Secondly, after experimenting with a closed bottom holster design I found that for my type of holster the way that the holster had to be constructed it would make the holster about 3/8 of an inch taller which limits the wearer to fewer choices of pants with pockets large enough to accommodate the taller holster.  Thirdly, the construction would take longer and increase the price which would make it more difficult to be competitve with my style of holsters.
  In twenty years or so of carrying in my jeans pocket I have never found any significant amount of lint or objects (none) in my pistol barrel.  For one, I never carry any other small or large objects in my carry pocket.  When I have checked my pistol on a regular basis I have found no lint in my barrel or any other kind of obstruction.  I guess denim just doesn't accumulate much lint. I would say that I have somethimes detected a very small amount of lint dust on the rear part of the slide that is exposed to my pocket material, denim in my case, which is easily wiped or blown off.  With any pistol that is carried daily in any method of carry the pistol should always be regularly inspected to make sure the weapon is in perfect order and there is nothing to keep it from correctly functioning when the occasion presents itself.  NEVER carry anything else in your pocket with your pistol and holster.  If you wear clothing that you are aware of or suspect that the material sheds noticable amounts of lint or lint balls, then I would advise that you either check to see if the lint is present in the pocket you intend on using or that you change to a different article of clothing that lint shedding is zero to minimal.  Again, NEVER carry anything else in your pocket with your pistol and holster.

Q:  The leather on my new wallet holster squeaks/creaks.  Will this go away?
A:  The creaking sound you hear is a normal sound that comes from good leather contacting other leather which is unavoidable due to the construction of the holster.  The sound should lessen and completely go away with time.  How much time may vary as to how often you wear the holster and use the holster and could vary from holster to holster.  To help speed it up you might just massage it some to help break it in.  I can take a brand new holster and put a pistol in it and massage it around in my hands and hear the creaking of the leather.  In my back pocket I rarely hear it when just sitting and walking around.  Again this can vary from holster to holster.  The holster I carry now, when brand new creaked a mite but now is silent.  I have worn it a while, 4 months or so, but can't really say just when the creaking stopped as I just didn't really notice it when carrying.  If it doesn't go away and it bothers you I will refund you.  I will refund for this issue past the 10 day refund limit if you send me the holster and the creaking is demonstratable.

Q:  If I turn your wallet holster upside down will the pistol fall out?
A:  After it breaks in, it will probably fall out when upside down.  Why would you be carrying your pistol upside down?  In all my years of carrying a wallet holster I have managed to keep myself in either an upright, sitting or reclining postition when carrying.  Never have I found myself upside down or in any position that would make my pistol fall out of the holster and hip pocket.  I have never had my pistol fall out of my holster while in my hip pocket.  Your holster should be a snug but slightly loose fit in order for a good smooth draw without the holster coming out with it.  After your holster breaks in, it should be this way.  Your hip pocket is usually a snug fit and along with the compression of your body will help keep your pistol in the pocket.  If I were to turn myself upside down my pistol would not fall out of my back pocket.  My back pants pocket covers over the top of my holster and pistol as you can see on some of the photos on this site.  If your pants pocket is so loose fitting that your pistol would fall out of your pocket when upside down then possibly your pistol and your tight fitting holster would fall out of your pocket together.  I totally disagree with having a tight fitting wallet hoster.  In my opinion it serves no purpose.  Other holster makers may disagree, I won't argue it with anyone.  Tight fitting holsters are for larger and heavier pistols worn outside the pocket where tight pistol retention is indeed necessary especially for those holsters that don't have a hold down strap of some kind. An example would be the closely molded holsters available today revealing every little contour of the pistol.  It works well for this type of outside-the-pocket carry.  For those that walk on your hands or often find yourself upside down, don't buy my holster.

Q:  Will the magazine release buttom be activated when carrying in my rear pocket?
A:  It could I guess.  Could happen in any wallet or pocket holster where the magazine release button contacts something.   Mine never has released while in my pocket and it hasn't been a complaint from my customers.  I will say this about it.  There are some wallet holsters designed so that their pocket leather is molded to come up over the magazine release button to protect it from being pushed in.  I tried this on an earlier prototype of my holster and found that it was more'n likely to do the opposite.  Instead of the magazine release button residing up against your soft rear end, the leather-covered magazine release button actually provided a harder surface for the magazine release button to reside up against.  My experience demonstrated to me that the magazine release was more apt to be pushed by the leather than your softer rear end.  That experience moved me toward a design that does not have leather contacting the magazine release button.  Take a moment and place your unloaded Ruger LCP in your rear pocket, without a holster, with the magazine release button facing in towards your rear end. Then try to activate the magazine release button by sitting on your pistol.  Hard to do.  Other holsters made with the leather covered magazine release button may work well to protect the button from accidental release but it is beyond my knowledge of their holsters to say one way or another.  My experience is with my holster design.  On my left-handed holsters I provide an indention in the back flap leather to accomodate the magazine release.  It is to help keep the leather from contacting the magazine release button.

Q:  Why do you sew your wallet holster together?  Is that better than using grommets, rivets or screws?
A:  I made a holster with a couple of grommets (chicago style screws) with no stitching and wore it a while in an attempt to produce a cheaper holster.  I noticed that after a while the holster tended to lose its shape due to the grommets loosening up a bit. I concluded from my experience with this style of construction that unlike a holster worn on the belt or outside the pocket in some fashion, that the hip pocket holster is subjected to more pressures and heat.  The wallet holster being sat on and mashed around a bit and exposed to constant body heat has a tendency to change its shape much like a real wallet does over time in your hip pocket.  The pistol, attempting to move around in the grommeted holster I made, in response to the different pressures applied to it while in my hip pocket, seemed to have a tendency to aid in a little wallowing out the grommet holes and loosening the bond between the parts of the holster which allowed the holster to deform more over time.  Tightening the screws to compress the parts helped temporarily but the loosening up continued over time. If there are no screws and just grommets, tightening the grommets may be beyond most folks skills and correct tools on hand.   My experience with stitched construction has shown me that the well-stitched holster keeps the parts in position more reliably and resists the deforming of the holster shape much better.  It takes more skill and takes longer to make and adds to the cost but in my opinion produces a much sturdier and longer lasting holster.  Riveted, grommeted or screwed together holsters are generally available at a lower purchase price as they can be constructed much quicker.  (continued with the next Q/A) 

Q:  What is lock-stitching and where is the wallet holster stitched?
A:   A lock stitch is the type of stitch that is produced by a machine.  My holsters are lock-stitched using a commercial heavy duty Cobra Class 4 leather sewing machine. I use a heavy 36 lb. nylon thread along the barrel on one side and under the barrel and trigger on the other side.  Rivets, grommets and screws require that a hole be punched (cut out) into the leather to insert the grommet through.  This hole stays a hole and it's kept open as a hole by the inserted rivet, grommet or screw.  When stitching leather, the leather is pierced through with a needle and the thread drawn through.  The leather will heal up the pierced hole and close in around the thread making it very tight and hard to remove.  This method keeps parts stitched together from moving around from use and forms a much tighter bond than rivets, grommets or screws.  Lock-stitching on holsters, saddles and tack, and other leatherwork has been a proven and reliable method of construction on leather utility equipment for many years by many leather manufacturers.

Q:  The stitching on the upper side of the pocket seems to not be sewn or the glue has come loose.  What's going on with that?
A:  Some, but not all of my holsters, are made that way intentionally to facilitate the draw.  If that side of the pocket was sewn all the way to the top of the pocket it would hinder the back anti-print panel from bending open enough to extract the pistol.  There is nothing wrong with your holster, it is an intentional part of the design of that particular holster.  See photo

Q:  Do you make other wallet holsters or holsters custom made to order?  I am willing to pay extra?  
A:do not take orders for holsters for any other guns.  Nor do I make modified versions of my current holsters that I have available.  I only make holsters for pistols that I have decided over time that fit and work well with my style of holster and would be a pistol that I would be comfortable and confident carrying concealed as my holsters are designed for.  Additionally, limiting the choices of holsters allows me to keep up with orders and enables me to ship sooner.  Inquiries about making other holsters for other pistols are generally not responded to.

Q:  I would like one in brown leather.  Are they available?
A:  No, sorry I only make black ones.  Will you make me a brown one anyway?  No, sorry I only make black ones.  Even if I pay you extra?  No, sorry I only make black ones.  We are holding your parents, your dog and your pastor, will you make a brown one to obtain their release?  No, sorry I only make black ones.

Q: Will any other little pistols fit in your wallet holsters?
A:  No.  My holsters are wet molded for specific pistols.  Other pistols will not fit.

Q:  Why won't you make a wallet holster for the Sig P238 and the Colt Mustang .380?

A:  I have gotten enough requests for a holster for these two pistols to warrant checking them out.  The size of these pistols are practically identical and certainly lend themselves to concealed pocket carry.  Personally I really like these pistols.  However, I will not be making a holster for either of them in the future.  I have concerns about folks carrying these pistols in their pockets in a cocked and locked condition of readiness.  When checking reviews on the internet I found that most recommended these single-action 1911 style semi-automatic pistols to be carried in the cocked and locked condition.  I am concerned that the movement of the pistol in the hip pocket due to the normal daily moving around and sitting of the person carrying the weapon that the safety may become dissengaged without their knowledge creating a very unsafe carrying condition as the trigger pulls on these are short and light compared to most double-action pistols.  A safer way to carry these pistols cocked and locked would be outside the pocket in suitable holsters designed for that type of carry.


Q:  Have you ever thought of making:  the traditional style wallet holster with a sewn-on or snap-on back flap / holsters and magazine combinations / individual or single magazine pouches / in the waist band holsters / outside the waistband holsters / holsters with zippers at the top / holsters with a flap that bends over the butt of the pistol / wider holsters / holsters with push-offs / holsters with suede or traction material sewed to the back / closed bottom holsters / holsters with a compartment to carry my concealed carry license / and some others that I have forgotten.
 
A-1:  Since I started messing around with wallet holsters back in 1991 I have tried all the above suggestions and even more.  I have a very large trash can that is near full of those prototypes that I have given concentrated thought to and produced and gave them a good try-out.  The holsters that I sell today are pretty much the results of that evolution of holster making.  All of the prototypes in the trash can were rejected for one reason or another.  Mostly because I didn't like them or they just didn't work well with what my goal was or I found the mass production of them to be too difficult or too complicated for me and would cause the selling price to be more than what I thought folks would feel was a reasonable price.  The holster design that I produce today is the design that I was most satisfied with and works well with me personally.  So yes, I have thought of the innovations and modifications but will not be producing them.
 
A-2:  My very first wallet holster I made back in 1991 was the traditional style holster with a separate back sewn in the lower corner that you mostly see offered by other wallet holster makers today which work fine for a lot of folks. It at first seemed to me to be the most logical and easy way to make a wallet holster.  Just add a flap to one side or another of an existing holster.  That's what I did.
 
   I wore that one for quite a while, but being the tinkerer that I am, I kept trying different ways to make the holster better as there were some things I didn't like about it.  One reason I went to the style that I make today is that after I wore this traditional style holster that I made in my back pocket for 6 months or so the back flap became misaligned with the rest of the wallet holster due to sitting on it so much and due to it being sewn to the holster just in the lower quadrant of the holster.  I had made it this way so that I could get a traditional full grip on the pistol when drawing.
 
  Another discovery was that since I wear snug fitting jeans I found that I could not get the full grip on the pistol I had intended even with this traditional wide open back flap design.  My pocket just didn't have enough room for most nearly all my hand with my fingers wrapped around the pistol grip to allow a smooth unobstructed draw.  To illustrate, take your hand, put it into your rear pocket, then make it into a full fist to simulate a full grip on a pistol and then extract your hand.  With your pistol fully gripped , which makes your fist even larger, it is difficult to extract the pistol depending on how big of a pocket your have.
 
 Also, I had a little problem reholstering when the wallet holster was still in my back pocket.  Often times when inserting the pistol the barrel of the pistol would naturally find itself in between the back flap and the back part of the holster pocket and not in the holster pocket itself.  Some practice helped with this but it bothered me that it was that way and that I had to pay attention to make it happen correctly.
 
  Another reason I changed the design was that I wanted a thinner, more comfortable and a little more unnoticeable wallet holster.  Eliminating the back sewn-on flap and making it into a half-holster type design with the slide side of the pocket only sewn part way up to facilitate the draw produced what I was looking for.  I had to develop a little different draw to extract the pistol but to me it has not been a problem. 
 
 I recently saw a Utube video of someone demonstrating their full grip method of drawing with a traditional sewn-on back flap holster which seemed to work fine for them.  However they mentioned that if your rear pants pocket was a bit snug you might have to modify your draw.  This is exactly what I discovered with my very first traditional style wallet holster I made. The modified way of drawing they suggested for when you have a snug back pocket with their traditional sewn-on back flap holster was pretty much the same as the way I show to draw from my holsters.  Since I was having to draw with my modified version of the traditional draw with a traditional style wallet holster in my snug jeans pocket I figured why not just make a thinner holster eliminating the traditional sewn-on back flap and draw with the same modified method. So I started carrying with my thinner wallet holster from then on.  That was around 1992.  I have been pleased with the design and have never had any problem with it that would warrant changing it in any way.

Q:  Do you make wallet holsters that accommodate laser grips?
A:  Yes I have some holsters available that accomodate pistols with the Crimson Trace Laserguard (CTL) attached.  Also the new LaserMax Centerfire laser (LMX) fitted to the Ruger LCP fits in my LMX holster made for the LaserMax.  Go here to see some photos.  Wallet Holster Gallery
  None of my holsters will work with the green Viridian lasers.  Please note that the green lasers will produce a visible green line from your pistol to your target which in effect draws a visible line to your position.  This may be undesirable if you wish to keep your position concealed. 

Q:  Will it damage my Crimson Trace Laser carrying it in my hip pocket? 

A:  Although I was skeptical at first about carrying my Ruger LCP/CTL combination in a holster in my hip pocket being concerned that it might damage or misalign the laser from the pressure exerted on it when sitting down.  I am now confident that, for myself, this is not a concern after having experienced carrying it on a daily basis.  Here is some commentary made on the Elsie Pea Forum about wallet holster carry that might help in your decision to carry the CTL in your hip pocket.  Having said that I must make the following statement concerning this question:

  
  As of this writing after diligent research as far as I know there has been no long term testing to see if carrying your Crimson Trace Laser/pistol combination in a holster will cause damage of any kind to the laser.  Or that it might cause damage by carrying it in a holster in any pocket and more specifically by carrying it in a hip pocket wallet holster which subjects the laser to pressure by sitting on it.  And as of this writing, I have not seen or heard of any published evidence that it does cause damage of any kind.  Please might I suggest that you check with the manufacturer of your CTL product and consult the literature that came with it if you have any concerns.  There is no guarantee made or implied on my part that by carrying your CTL/pistol combination in the Uncle George's CTL Holster, in any pocket, that your CTL is totally protected from any kind of damage or misalignment of the laser.  I am making this holster available as per request by customers and so I consider it is solely the buyer's choice to carry their Crimson Trace Laser/pistol combination in the manner described in the above text being aware of the lack of any credible testing of the product being carried in this same manner.   When you purchase any of my holsters that accomodate the Crimson Trace Laser you are acknowledging the aforementioned information offered and are completely releasing Uncle George, maker of the Uncle George holsters of any liability regarding the use of your laser holster and the laser itself.  Please be reminded that you should regularly check to see if your laser is properly aligned and is functioning properly no matter what method you decide to carry it.

Q:  Do you make a wallet holster that will accommodate the Armalaser or Laserlyte?
A:  No, and there are no plans to do so in the future for either of these lasers.  Contrary to the manufacturers claims that the Laserlyte fits all pocket holsters, pistols with this .56 inch thick laser attachment on the side of the pistol do not fit well at all in my holsters.  I do not recommend either for my holsters. 

Q:  Will the Ruger LCP, without a Crimson Trace Laser attached to it, fit in an Uncle George's CTL Holster?  I want to go ahead and purchase the laser holster now but won't be able to obtain a laser unit for a while.
A:  Unfortunately the LCP without a CTL attached doesn't fit the laser wallet holster well.  It is a loose fit and if pushed a little the barrel of the LCP without a laser attached will protrude out the bottom of the laser holster.  I do not make or provide any kind of spacer insert to make the LCP fit without the laser unit attached.

Q:  I have purchased a non-laser wallet holster and have since added the Crimson Trace Laser to my pistol.  I have only slightly used my non-laser holster and is in very good condition.  Can I exchange it for a laser wallet holster?  OR, just the opposite, an exchange from a laser holster to a non-laser holster.
A:  Sorry but no.  I don't buy back or trade for holsters in any kind of used condition.  I do not resell used holsters.  Only exception is that you return your holster within the 10 day refund/exchange limit and the holster is in never-used condition.  Never means no pistol has ever been placed in it and looks exactly the way it did when shipped and anyone else purchasing it would be pleased to have it.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  If you send me a slightly used and "like new" holster expecting an exchange for a holster of a different type as descibed above, you'll more'n likely find it in your mail box.  Also, be advised if you return a holster in a soft-mailer and not use the original box or at least make an honest attempt to ship the holster protected from damage and the holster arrives smashed and flattened, you might also get it sent back also.  I have never received a holster back sent in a soft mailer that wasn't smashed and not usable.  If in doubt contact me through this website before sending in a holster for an exchange.  Exchanges for a holster that is the same type as purchased that has a defect or for any other reason that I have authorized is always promptly exchanged.

A:  The holster is wet-molded to ensure a good fit.  At first it will be tight but by working the pistol in and out and by wearing it you should see it loosen up sufficiently.  These holsters are not intended to fit tight.  It should fit snug but slightly loose.  Your pants pocket and compression from your body will help hold your pistol along with the holster.  A slightly loose holster will help with a smooth and quick draw and will help ensure that the holster will remain in your pocket.  It may take a day or two of wearing it and practicing your draw.  Heat from your hands and body help soften it up. Make sure to unload your pistol when practicing your draw.  For some additional information on breaking a holster in and a little faster method check out this video.

Q: Will applying leather softening agents such as saddle soap harm the wallet holster?
A:  Chemicals, compounds, saddle soaps and any other leather softening agents should not be applied to the holster as it may compromise the finish and render the holster to a softened state not intended for my holsters and will void any warranty claims.  My holsters function well as is for most folks without any modifications and applications of softening agents.  The holster will soften and loosen up sufficiently through use.  If you are not satisfied with the holster as it is please return it within 10 days for a refund.  Holsters that have had softening agents applied to them are NOT RETURNABLENO REFUND WILL BE ISSUED.

Q: What is reasonable wear in reference to a refund?
A:  That would be marks and indentations and slide marks normally associated with the insertion and removal of the pistol from the holster.  Also any slight bends to the back of the holster associated with the holster conforming to the torso that normally comes in contact with the holster during carry.  Here are a few holsters that was beyond normal wear.  Altered Holsters

Q:  What should I do to help preserve my wallet holster?
A:  The holster shouldn't need much maintenance.  The leather is finished similar to how a saddle is finished so if needed, wipe with a damp cloth.  Don't use black shoe polish on it as it will wear off on your pants.  Use clear paste wax polish if you want to shine it up.  If you should fall out of your boat or wade into the pool or ocean with your pistol and holster, just dry it out completely and buff it and you should be good to go.  Don't use any product on it that will soften the leather.

Q:  Is there a reason for the texture on the black flap, those squiggly looking indentations?
A:  A couple of reasons for those.  One is that I found that just a flat surface had a tendency to cause more resistance to the removal of the pistol.  I found that a finely textured back did not help much so I developed the design that is more deeply indented which lessoned the amount of surface contact with the pistol thus reducing the friction/resistance when removing the pistol.  Secondly, just a plain flat back just didn't look good and I wanted something that was uniquely my design.

Q:  Why do you ship USPS and not UPS?
A:  My local post office is only one mile away which enables me to get your holsters in the mail quicker.  UPS charges quite a bit more and they are farther away from me.  I tried having them pick up shipments but they never showed up on time which left me waiting too long.

Q:  What is ineptocracy?
A:  Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc'-ra-cy)  A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of the society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with the goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Q:  What is the future of the United States?
A:  God only knows' but I am reminded of some quotes of a "successful" President and leader of the United States of America. 
 
 Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We don't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -Ronald Reagan
 
 How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin. -Ronald Reagan 
 
The ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas-a trial of spiritual resolve: the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideals to which we are dedicated. -Ronald Reagan
 
To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last-but eat you he will!
 -Ronald Reagan
 
...and an additional reminder from a Higher Authority. 
 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)

Q:  I haven't been able to decide to carry or not.  I am new to guns and am apprehensive about it.  Any advice?
A:  That is just something you're going to have to decide on your own.  I can understand with all the increase in mass shooting incidents across our nation that folks that have never been around guns are now considering it with understandable reservations.  I guess it boils down to your fear of being maimed or murdered by some nut having a bad hair day overriding your reservations about carrying a lethal weapon to stop the threat. In my own case, the Luby's Cafeteria incident mentioned on my home page created enough concern about protecting against that kind of craziness that it overroad any reservations I had about carrying a lethal weapon.   My advice, would be first to go to a reputable shooting range.  Don't be embarrassed and tell them upfront that you are new to guns and wish to learn and would like help in proceeding.  Most will be very understanding and helpful. Be willing to spend some dollars on learning.  Range gun rental, ammunition, range time and good instruction will require your funds.  Once the skills are learned to your satisfaction you might find that your reservations about carrying a weapon may change.   Here's a short true account I can share to maybe help some that might have reservations about whether or not you will be able to actually learn and master the skills to handle a weapon.   My Aunt Brenda. 

Q:  Will the prohibiting of concealed handgun carry stop the violence commited with guns?

Q:  Did Jesus have a wife?
A: My response to the recent so called finding of writings that has been said to indicate that Jesus had a wife.  This is just my take on it, will not debate it and won't respond to any contacts concerning the matter.  Did Jesus Have a Wife?

Q:  Was our Lord and Savior born in Bethlehem or Hawaii?
A:  Bethlehem.  Matthew 2:1  KJV, NIV, NAS and most nearly any Bible version.

Q:  Was Obamat lieing when he promised that no one would lose their health insurance and that we could keep our present insurance and doctors.
A:  Yes, now we know he was lying.  He was a liar from the beginning.

Q:  So, who's Uncle George anyway?
A:  I decided that it might be helpful to those trying to decide if this person, Uncle George, is someone they want to purchase a holster from seein's that I am not a major manufacturer of holsters.  Go here
