I picked up this old Tex Shoemaker holster from one of the local gun shops. The shop owner had died recently and his daughter gave me the holster and told me that I could have it so I could do something with it. I got the holster to use for my Smith M & P .38 to compete in the NYS Police & Fire Games. (I love to compete with the old wheelguns up against polymer frame autos).

Here is the holster after I got it home and cleaned the dirt and dust off of it.

I then got some Kiwi Black leather dye, and gave it a couple of coats. I then followed that up with some Kiwi leather polish after it had dried.
