I understand wearing on the blueing with leather holsters. I have had leather holsters since 1981. I'm just concerned with the "Kydex" style of plastic on a blued gun.All holsters no matter if leather or Kydex will eventually cause wear to the blue on the contact areas.
Especially if you practice drawing your firearm from your holster extensively which everybody should be doing.
You know the old saying. "Nothing stays new forever."
I have 7 or 8 nice leather holsters for this gun, a couple are custom made for it.I think leather conceals a little better,Blackhawk is an really good holster but more along a service oriented holster ,great for IDPA or USPSA,a Custom leather made for CC would be better for you 1911 in my opinion,it all depends on waht your using it for?
