    Yep, I sure do. But, after the first time I developed a case of gun rash like yours, I started wearing the "wife beater" type undershirts when I carry with the gun concealed by a T-shirt or something. I never carry the gun where it can rest up against my exposed skin. Give that a try.

    I practice drawing 10 to 20 times every morning. (with an unloaded gun of course)

    I don't practice drawing and holstering religiously, but I practiced it a bit before I went to my last class. I have a red plastic model of my EDC pistol and using that for draw practice at home was very convenient.

    I do but I wear the wife beater shirts, and have the Crossbreed Supertuck. Never had that problem.

    I do at least a dozen draws every morning when I get dressed. I too wear a wifebeater under my outer cover garment daily.

    i'm sorry but I can't stop paying attention to the half eaten bread....

    nice belt, wilderness? I dunno if it's just me, but whenever i practice un-holstering it always pulls my pants up with it. I'm probably doing it wrong.

    No pain - no gain. Keep right on practicing.

    Old Wives Remedy for Holster Burn.

    Rub the affected area with a piece of partially eaten bread dipped in goats milk & honey.

    either that or buy a holster with a skin guard.

    When I started carrying I would get a red spot from the gun on my side, the diamond checkering on my grips would irritate my skin. I tried the wife beater "T" shirts but in the summer time, its just too hot.

    Wearing a holster with a sweat shield against your body will help solve your skin irritation problem. I wear a Dakota Defender made by K&D Holsters and the back side has suede on it, very comfortable.
