My Christmas present to myself was a new Crossbred holster. I got the horse hide, and it also squeaks. If you read the info on the holster, it says it needs some leather conditioner to prevent the squeaking. I'll apply it this weekend, and see if it helps. It is a great holster so far. I have been carrying my G29. I can also carry my G21 in 45, and my G20 in 10mm, since it has the open end at the bottom of the holster. It's a keeper.
