    Hey folks, if anyone knows a way to make it stop please share.

    It seems that about every step I take my holster and belt rub together and make this constant groaning noise. (Holster and belt are leather.) I really like them both, so if anyone knows a simple way to make them silent, please share it.

    First thing that comes to mind is saddle soap.

    Talc is best, warning about saddle soap.

    Talc is your best route, but if you choose to use saddle soap, use it on the belt only. It softens leather, and you really don't want to do that to your holster.

    Leather groan and squeak

    Silicone spray- also great for repeling sweat

    Rub a wax candle on the places which contact. It is primarily the loops and the belt at that spot.

    Talc (baby powder) worked just fine for me. Quiet as a mouse.
