    take a magnet and see if it will stick to the slide. if it does, the slide is mild steel. mild steel will rust. if the magnet does not stick, it is stainless steel, stainless, is rust resistant, but not rust proof.

    Blueing is a type of protective rust. So if you take it off, then yes the gun will rust.

    If you don't take the blueing off a PF-9 and don't maintain it decently it will rust when you sweat on it. A silicon cloth to wipe the gun down in the evening is a quick effective way to keep them or any gun in good shape.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I had this problem with my P3AT. Granted I've pocket and ankle carried it since '08, and have sweated through my holster several times. My slide is definitly pitted and slightly rusted. I've since changed to a nylon pocket holster, but I still need to refinish the slide.
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    Don't sand or polish it but give it a good coat of breakfree clp ever time its out of your pocket for a while and it will keep it from rusting. I carried one for 2 1/2 years in my pocket with no issues working as a carpenter. That clp will soak in to the metal and tends keep metal in good shap even when it seems none is there.
