I just got a new holster from Crossbreed.com for my XD9. It is a little stiff and he recommends that you use leather conditioner to aid in the break-in process. What is leather conditioner and what brand would you recommend?

You don't want to use anything that would soften the leather.

For a quicker break-in process I'd just put the gun in the bag it came in and stuff that into the holster overnight. It should loosen up.

Or carry it around the house. It loosens up quicker with use.

Never mind -- I was about to lecture you on not using conditioners on a quality leather holster, and then I finally found the site -- crossbreedholsters.com.

It is a clone of the Tucker Answer, with kydex around the gun and a leather backing.

So, since it is not a leather holster, have fun -- go to WalMart and get Eagle Leather conditioner, usually found in the Car Department.

Is something like this (http://www.mitchrosen.com/product_line/miscellaneous/body_miscellaneous.html) not good?

I have never used Leather lightning, but if Rosen is selling it, it will probably at least not harm the holster -- don't know if it would actually be worth $12.00.
