My CCW is tarnished from my skin?
I just purchased a new Para 1911 a couple months back. I bought it primarily for CC, and I carry it using a IWB.
I noticed last night that around the inside, the side that is closest to my body, that it is starting to get some discoloration. It almost looks like it's become tarnished. It's paritcularly noticable around the edge of the beavertail saftey and the little part that sticks out behind the hammer (don't know what that's called).
The only thing I could think of that would dothis is the oils from my skin. It does rub a little when I'm carrying.
My question is, can prolonged skin contact like this tarnish a weapon?
If so, how in the world can I get it off? I tried rubbing it down with no luck
I Never Have a Gun Touching My Skin...
I either have a T-shirt and a 'collared' cover shirt...or a summer 'T' under another T-shirt...depends upon the weather. I also have a body protector on each holster I buy. This eliminates the problem of body oil touching gun metal...problem solved!
Stay alert...stay safe!
