I’m pretty fussy when it comes to the finish on my handguns. I recently looked at a old blued Colt Mustang and the finish was mostly worn off from holster wear. The salesman called it, “battle worn”. You won’t get that with Holster Pro. The leather Paul uses is a bridle leather and the holsters he makes are specifically for your gun. The leather he uses is soft against the finish and with his large variety of styles it makes it easy to find the perfect holster.
