    Haha. Maybe he did a lot of draw practicing and dry firing at home and didn't like the trigger pull. At least... I hope that's what it was.

    It reminds me of thread here where a member complained about all of the problems that they've had with a gun, and then a couple weeks later, it was posted for sale as "runs flawlessly".

    That is funny. Although I do practice with my EDC, If I didnt, my IWB holster would still have wear because I remove my pistol before removing the hoslter. The most emberasing thing about writing something like that though is stating that it had never been fired, unless you were in the in the business of selling guns. Why in the world would you have a holster for a gun that you didnt carry or practice with. Jim

    Cop gun?

    To us "enthusiasts", not practicing regularly with your carry gun is unheard of, but I'm guessing its more common in law enforcement. I've definitely seen quite a few LEO trade-ins advertised as holster wear + little to no use.

    This is why I dont do on line buy's. I want to see the gun, try the gun, examine the gun before I buy. Anyone who claims a gun (or anything else) is perfect is not being honest.

    Some holster wear is more is a good sign for me.

    IMO Most people dont know how to judge the true condition of a firearm.
