    im half joking with the pics but am gunuinly concerned if whether a brand new solid black leather holster will mess up a stainless finish with extended sweaty carry.

    No It will not stain the gun,Stainless guns hold up better than blued guns in any holster

    I don't know, how much do you sweat?


    Other than that, don't worry about it. It will be just fine.

    Do remember though, that stainless still requires maintenance just like you would a blued firearm.

    Stainless = "Stain" "Less" It is not impervious.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Leather dye cannot bleed into Stainless steel.

    If any black dye did rub off onto your Stainless handgun (highly unlikely) you could just lacquer thinner it right off.

    It is a RARE event when a Stainless firearm will ever show surface rust.

    That would only happen if the Stainless was not properly pacified during manufacture.

    I have had both S&W & Ruger Stainless firearms holstered and wet/damp for days on end out in the deep woods of PA and out "on and in" the water and they never even showed a hint of discoloration let alone rust.

    i asked the same question when i first got my gun, and the overwhelming response was that my gun was not a fashion statement...if i wanted it to look pretty, then just keep it on the shelf. sometimes it's gonna get scratched.

    I had this discussion a while back with Tony Kanaley of Milt Sparks holsters and Tony also advised that while some dye from a new black holster might get on the slide, it would wipe right off with no harm done. Makes sense as the same amount of black dye would come off on a black or blue finished gun, it just wouldn't be as easiy noticed. I have found that no cleaning chemicals are needed to get the black off, just wipe it down with a lightly oiled cloth and it's gone.
