Leather holsters are more susceptible to wear and damage than other holsters. Investing some care and attention will preserve their beauty and functionality.
Areas of high salt content (sweat) can degrade the leather quality. If possible, keep a barrier of clothing between yourself and the holster, protecting the leather from perspiration.
It is a good practise to wipe down your leather products with a clean dry cloth after every use. A gentle cleansing with warm water and glycerin soap can be done if the leather becomes soiled. Brush on with a soft-bristled toothbrush, rinse and pad the leather with a dry cloth until it remains just slightly damp. Allow the product to air dry on its own. Direct sunlight and high heat can change the shape of the leather and will likely cause a permanent damage to it.
When not in regular use, store your leather products in a cool, dry location.
Nylon holsters and our other synthetic material products such s belts, concealed carry bags, slings ans accessorise will need minimal care throughout their service life.
Clean as needed by hand wash with a mild soap and water. Allow to air dry naturally. If needed, you may use a soft bristle brush (such as a toothbrush) to loosen any extra dirt or dust.
Do not wash them in the washing machine or use artificial heat to speed up the drying process.

FALCO holsters are fitted to a particular gun and can have a high degree of retention. The initial fit can be very tight and would require some stretching of the leather to allow for a smooth draw. It is called break in. As leather is a natural, porous material that absorbs moisture, it can happen that it would tighten in the drying stages. We color, treat and oil the leather in the holster crafting process and can never predict how much moisture would the particular piece of leather absorb.
So the holster may be stiff and tight at first but that is all too normal. It would only need to be broken in. All you need is a plastic grocery bag, your holster and your gun. Before you begin the break-in procedure be sure to loosen up any re-tension screws if your holster has them.
Wrap your gun in the grocery plastic bag, leaving the handle exposed for a firm grip and slide the gun into the holster. Do not worry to push the gun in really hard. Leave it holstered like this overnight, maybe couple of days. Then draw the gun out, take the plastic bag off and try holstering it. It should loosen up enough for you to insert the gun more freely. If you still find it too tight, please repeat the process with the plastic grocery bag until you are happy with the result. Alternatively you can use FALCO break in liquid/ solution -- https://www.falcoholsters.com/leather-impregnation-and-break-in-set-o201
to aid in the break in of your holster.
As far as the retention strap - thumb break goes, if you find it difficult to close with the holstered weapon, please follow these instructions.
Hold on to the strap and pull on it really hard while pushing the gun into the holster. Keep on pulling that strap over and over until it stretches just enough to snap close. Leave it with the gun inside overnight. This would break in the retention strap.

There is no correct answer. The best advice we can give is to try out as many as you can of the different carry and angle positions. Once you find where the gun is most comfortable, best conceals your body and you find the draw easy, you have the winner. Read our blog on What type of gun holsters we produce.
