I've been meaning to post this for a while. As the C9's are a little large for many leather holsters try this trick.
1. Wrap the pistol in saran wrap.
2. Soak the leather holster in water ( I used hot water, not sure if it makes a difference)
3. Force the wrapped pistol into the holster
4. Let the holster dry. It will form to the shape of the pistol (assuming that it was only a little small originally)

Once dry If the pistol drags when you draw, spray a small amount of WD-40 on the inside of the holster. The pistol will slide out easily.

I had a leather holster for a Taurus PT98 that was too small for a C9 being left handed and having trouble finding the right holster I tried this, it works very well![/quote]

agree to the "old school" approach - we used to do the same thing for ice skates when they were leather, now they are carbon fiber...... oh well.

Only small watch out - if you have a more expensive holster, many times they are warranted - soaking in water will make that go away. May not be an issue, just wanted to let folks know.
