    Do you leave your gun holstered at home

    I am in the habit of leaving my gun in its holster in the evenings after I get home. Does anyone know or see a problem in doing that?

    Yes, I do. I usually leave my Glock in the holster it was last carried in.

    Glocks and LCP stay in the holster and go straight into the safe as one unit. I've dared them to rust and they refuse.

    Other guns that are more sensitive to rust get a wipe-down from a silicone rag, hence unholstered.

    Out in the home, all my guns sit in holsters, but in the safe they stay unholstered and in a rack.

    I unholster my carry pistols from their leather holsters to cheaper nylon holsters. From what I've been told storing a pistol in a leather holster long term can draw moisture and lead to rusting.

    Mine go in the safe, sans holster. I've heard the same thing about rust.

    Mine usually hangs out in the holster. (XD9sc, Galco King-Tuk) When I'm going to and from work it hangs out in a Remora holster, gets locked in my COM safe in my truck, then normally hangs out in the Remora for most of the next day because that's my designated lazy day. I drive to and from work at 7am because of my 24hr shift schedule. (FF)

    Mine stays on me until bed, when it then goes into my bedside lockbox unholstered. One less step if the SHTF during the night.

    plastic with chrome or stainless uppers can live in a holster...leather or whatever

    blued guns are going to pick up rub marks from kydex type holsters; more cause of repeated insertion and presentation coupled with
    small movements as you move about with it on your person.

    the only worry i have ever had is that the chemicals used in leather making may do 'things' to a blue finish.
    so i unholster them. this goes back a good many years so it may no longer be a concern. anyone?

    Mine stay holstered. The exception is the SR9c which goes from a carry holster to a bedframe mounted holster behind the headboard.

    My EDC stays holstered as well once I get home. I do see any issues nor heard of any...

    Out of the holster at home. My holsters are leather, my guns are metal, and summers in GA can be pretty muggy.

    Holstered. All have one in the pipe at all times, and remain in a holster to protect the trigger.

    My bedside gun is a DA/SA with a decocking lever. I keep it with one in the pipe, decocked, in a holster.

    My EDC is SAO; it stays in a leather holster to protect the trigger.

    My plinker is a DA/SA in .22lr. It too has a full mag, one in the pipe, hammer is down, and it is in a holster.

    To my thinking that holster is a safety device and I make sure I use it.
    Rock and Glock and WHEC724 like this.
