Got my new calvary holster in the mail little bit ago . It's black with US stamped on the flap . Pretty stiff will try putting one of my cap and ball revolvers in a plastic bag and car wax inside of the holster and see how that works . Have heard that helps to soften them up . Will see . It's the last piece . Been making a correct set up for a civil war calvary trooper belt . Got everything else even a sword for it . Got ideas for a costume for our churches Halloween carnival this year . That is if it don't get canceled cause of this Covid stuff .
