    I have a Kramer horsehide pocket holster that I can't use because my j frame fits it so tight that the holster always comes out of the pocket if I try to draw the weapon.

    Is there any thing I can use to remedy this?

    Its leather so you can stretch it.

    Wrap your gun in plastic wrap (make sure no moisture can get in ... also the more layers of wrap you use, the looser you will make the holster) ... get the holster wet (not deep soak, just dunk it real quick in bowl of warm water).

    Stuff your wrapped roscoe into it and let it sit overnight.

    That should stretch it well enough.

    (I'm sure there are more refined methods, but this one should work)

    Some folk will say used wax paper instead of plastic wrap ... and don't wet the holster, but leave the gun in for a couple days.

    EDIT: Kramer gives the following instructions:
