    Bianchi model 75 (Venom)

    I picked this holster up last night for my new XDm 3.8 and man is it a tight fit. When I first puy the pistol in the slide moved back about a half an inch. Is this normal for leather holsters to be that tight?

    I can't really say what's normal for leather holsters. I've purchased two of them. The Bianchi OWB was tight, but essentially fit perfectly. The Galco shoulder holster was overly tight. It was suggested to put the pistol in a ziploc bag before inserting it into the holster and letting it sit overnight. Seemed to do the trick.

    Yup, have the right one. It will fit but I have to hold the slide to keep it from sliding up. Its in the holster right now in a zip lock.

    Leather has a natural stretch. If the holster were the exact, proper fit upon first purchase then it would likely stretch out of shape as it wore in. Resist any ideas about wetting down the holster with neatsfoot oil, alcohol, gin, vermouth or anything else.
    It will wear in as you use it, so.... practice, practice, practice.

    Thanks for the feedback. Left it in the holster overnight with the pistol in a baggie. Goes in no problems now. Still a tight draw. I will have to practice with it.
