Bought a leather belt carrier that was supposed to hold two 9mm Hi-cap mags. When I tried it, it was so tight I could not get the mags back out. My brilliant wife came up with a can of Kiwi Shoe Stretch. We sprayed the carrier per instructions, let it dry and the mags were looser. Over the weekend, we kept spraying, wedging butterknives behind the mags to make it stretch more. Mags slide in and out smooth as silk now.

Gotta pick up some more Kiwi Shoe Stretch -- handy stuff.

Good tip. Another tip is to wrap the mags or whatever in Saran Wrap and leave them in the holster for a few days.
