I'm a relatively new handgun owner and purchased this kydex holster from Vedder for my Smith & Wesson 638 approximately one month ago to begin preparation and training for concealed carry. I'd like to believe that I did enough to educate myself on kydex holsters and how they relate to the firearm being holstered in them before I decided to purchase one. From what I understand so far, I realize that wear to the finish of a firearm is normal for any firearm that you choose to carry on your person in a holster. However, I believe that the wear that's been appearing on my firearm's cylinder from just one month of use is abnormal. I also believe that the holster that I am using is defective and causing this wear, but would like to see what others may think.
I'd really appreciate any feedback. Photos are included in the post.
Thanks a bunch.
