My holster for my python Is very stiff, an I really have to push to get It to conform to my revolver. If It were softer and more flexible It would save wear on both.

Wrap your pistol in saran wrap. Wet your holster (soak it). Then shove it in there. Let id dry out a day or two

I was thinking of that but all I read said not to soak It, most said to use hard bar glycerin soap?

Rub butter on it and put in the oven on low heat until tender (about 3 hours should do it).

Neats foot oil. It'll make the toughest leather soft and won't smell like popcorn or rust the revolver.

I'd go with the butter the A1 and maybe some Pappy's to boot.

Mink Oil. But I'd be curious to try Neats Foot Oil though.
