This week on SNN-TV: Break-in and care tips for traditional gun leather

This week on SNN-TV, morning anchor Kathy Leon and I talk about leather holsters which, contrary to popular thought, are not dead. Far from it.

In today’s tactical Kydex world, there’s still a place for good quality gun leather.

They’re not as durable as Kydex, but as long as you know how to break them in and care for them, they can be as comfy as a pair of old shoes.

I’m just received a custom leather holster for my HK P7 from Craft Holsters — a fantastic product for a hard-to-fit handgun. I recommend Craft Holsters highly.

Enjoy the episode!
