    Leather IWB Care?

    Need some help. I wear a Max Tuck with a G19 daily. I work outside in Florida, so I am constantly hot and sweaty. The side of the slide that sits against the leather will develop some "rust" spots if not wiped down daily.

    Is there anything I could put on that side of the leather that would limit the amount of moisture transfer? I have some Ballistol, and it says it can be used on leather......

    Any help would be welcome!

    I was wondering about that, but will it harm the finish of the gun?

    If I wear a print shirt, I'm also wearing a T-shirt, but if I'm just wearing a T-shirt, then I also have a 'wifebeater' T-shirt under the T-shirt...never had sweat problem here in FL.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    The best stuff bar none that I have used since is 1955, used on my logging boots cowboy boots, my Sam Brown duty holster, shoulder holster, leather coats and all my belts and for the leather seats back in the days of my Corvette. I used it today on my Crossbreed and my Blackhawk IWB

    I just finished a coat of Ballistol on holster and boots! The boots will really tell me how it holds up. The sand here sucks them dry in a matter of days.
