Streamlining Your Company

There aren't many things that make me mad, but when it comes to running a company, few things are more frustrating to me than lazy employees. A few months ago I started keeping closer tabs on my workers, and it became immediately clear that there were some team members that didn't care at all about things like productivity, saving money, and doing the right thing. I wanted to do something to correct the situation, so I started honing our processes, holding more team meetings, and perfecting the processes. This blog is all about streamlining your company and making things right.

Important Maintenance Tasks For A Handgun Holster

by Elmer Johnson

If you've bought a stealth holster, such as from Q-Series LLC, that you'll use to lawfully carry a concealed weapon, it's important that you take a serious approach to maintaining the holster. Doing so will not only keep it working well in the months and years to come, but may also prevent a variety of problems that you don't want to encounter. Although the exact maintenance tasks that you'll need to perform can vary based on the type of holster that you own and the materials from which it's made, here are some important tasks that you should consider.

Tightening The Clip

If your holster has a clip that it uses to attach to your belt, the inside of your pants, or somewhere else, you need to constantly check that this clip is working correctly. Generally, the clip will be connected to the body of the holster with a screw. Check the tightness of the screw to ensure that it's firm. If the screw were to loosen without your knowledge, there could be serious issues. The worst-case scenario could be the screw coming out while the holster is in place, potentially causing the holster and your firearm to fall to the ground — something that you definitely don't want when you are trying to keep the fact that you carry stealthy, especially in a public area.

Checking The Snap

Many handgun holsters have a small strip of leather with a snap device on the end of it that wraps across the top of the holster to secure the butt of the gun in place. It's always important to ensure that both halves of the snap hardware — the piece on the leather strip and the corresponding pieces on the body of the holster — are firmly attached in their respective areas. If this snap were to come undone, the gun would not be secure in your holster and could fall out upon you leaning forward or backward.

Conditioning The Leather

As is the case when you own any leather product, it's a good idea to condition the leather to help promote its longevity. If you don't condition a leather product, it can frequently dry up and begin to crack — often requiring you to then replace it. In extreme cases, cracked leather may no longer hold your firearm in a snug manner, which could potentially cause it to slip out. You can buy leather conditioning products at gun stores that sell leather holsters, as well as at clothing stores and even furniture stores.
