    Guns are tools and are meant to be used. Like my car I bought it to drive and get me from point a to b. A 2003 Taurus with almost 250,000 miles on it. My guns are not safe queens they have wear and scratches on them I keep them maintained and in working order.

    I carry a Stainless Steel Colt 1911 every day,new the gun cost over $1000 before I added about $200 in upgrades,it has finish wear and a few scratchy poos and I carry it in a home made leather OWB holster.It will do it's job if I ever need it to,The worst thing that could ever happen is if your gun is ever taken in for evidence,they won't clean it and therefore any moisture including body fluids will sit on the finish until you hopefully have it returned.

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    It seems the consensus of opinion is not to worry about cosmetics concerning your self defense weapon. I agree.

    I see it as being like a pair of blue jeans. They look just fine with a little wear. If you bought it for CC, no one is supposed to see it anyway.

    Welcome. I have used a Galco King Tuk since they came on the market for my XD40. I remove the weapon each night and re holster it every morning and have no noticeable wear on the weapon. Normal carry wear is expected and has little or no effect on resale, but who sells their old faithful guns. I retire them to the safe to allow my kids to enjoy them when I am gone.

    Welcome!

    Think of holster wear as kind of a badge of honor for your weapon, all the the ones yo use on a regular basis will acquire some.
