    ...Or rather, HIP. Maybe someone can offer a suggestion for softening the leather. I re-positioned the holster to behind the hip. That helped a little. Loosening the belt helps a little more (who'd a-thunk, right?). Nevertheless, it still feels stiff and aggressive. I like the holster so I don't want to dump it. With use, does the leather ever loosen up and get a little more pliable and comfortable?

    If you have a Bianchi Pistol Pocket, or any stiff leather IWB, please sound off.

    Do you know about the "clock positions" when wearing a holster? Twelve o-clock is your belly button, six o'clock is the center of the small of your back, three o'clock is your right hip, and so on. The holster is stiff by design so it does not collapse, and using a softening agent will damage it. If you wear it at 3:00, it may dig into your hip bone. Try moving it to about 4:00 or even 4:30. Also, if it is new, it needs some break-in just like a new pair of shoes. Give it some time and it will eventually conform more to the shape of your body.

    There are also soft leather holsters available (e.g., the High Noon Bare Asset and Mr. Softy), but the trouble with these is that they are a nuisance to get the gun into in the first place.

    Yes. I know about the clock-positions.

    Like I said, I moved it to behind my hip (4:15 or so). That helps a lot. Knowing that the best way to wear it in is simply to wear it sooths my worry. I'll just have to wear the holster a lot and break it in.

    Oh the horror of horrors :rolleyes:.

    Thanks.
