I'm a newbie and like to keep my possessions in excellent shape, and tho I haven't carried long enough yet for holster/pistol wear (but I'm anxiously looking forward to it! ), it's nice to know the common sense thought that obviously if both are 'showcase' condition down the road SOMETHING is seriously wrong!
The thought honestly never occured to me
worn = use = a good thing.
It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

You could always just carry a Glock... because there's no way it can possibly get any uglier!

Since I'm a shooter and not a collector, I expect that all of mine will get a few dings from time to time. Holster wear is just par for the course. I did purchase my last several weapons NIB, because the price wasn't that much more than used, and that way I know exactly what's been done to them.
It's kind of like taking a fancy new guitar on a pub gig. You worry about it at first, but once it gets a little Guiness splashed on it, you quit worrying and just play!

They are tools, clean them, wipe them down to prevent rust, but I do expect wear. Now, on my 1911 it even looks kinda cute, like a badge of honor .
