    Since this is the unmolded version, I'll be using the "Wax Paper" technique to break it in.

    The Wax Paper technique involves the following when forming & breaking in a new holster:

    1. Wrap the unloaded pistol, (usually one layer), in wax paper, wax side out.

    2. Place the wrapped pistol inside the new holster.

    3. Leave the pistol inside the holster overnight or about 12 to 24 hours.

    4. After 24 hours remove pistol & wax paper.

    5. Pistol should fit holster like a glove & form to the shape of the gun for a smooth fit & draw.

    Note: This technique can also be done for molded holsters that are too tight as this will stretch the holster by a few millimeters & make for a smoother fit & draw.

    I have not even seen wax paper since I was a kid staying over my Grandmom's house in the summer decades ago...

    I have a roll, but I don't use it much except for maybe covering something when reheating stuff in the microwave.

    However, the wax paper technique for holsters does work very well!:D

    Hey CZ, you mind posting a pic or two of that FDE Glock? How do you like it? I’m looking to get a gen4 27, and I’ve been thinking about getting one in the FDE finish, just for a change...

    Milt Sparks Holsters are some of the best...

    I own one for my S&W 3" Model 13...but never took a picture of it.

    Gotta remedy that...
