Both my wife and I carry our EDC guns from the time we get dressed till when we go to sleep. At that time our carry guns go into an Uncle Mikes nylon IWB or pocket holster on our respective nightstands.

All other guns are locked in the safe - in a pistol rack on a shelf, not in holsters.

when my edc comes off, it stays in the holster, even on the nightstand. I figure that gives me an extra half a seco d to wake up before the safety comes off, if something goes bump in the night.

one leather holster for carry a different leather holster for on the night stand. each holster gets it's share of free breathing time.

Seeing as my holster is my vest, it stays in there except on Sunday mornings when it gets transferred to the shoulder holster or to my cut(leather biker vest) for a ride.

Never, if the holster is leather it will, over time, damage the firearms finish. Kydex doesn't but it can still capture moisture between it and the gun. So I like to separate the two to "air" things out.
Further a firearm stored in a an unsecured holster takes 2 hands to access, one to hold the holster and one to grasp the gun. So if you feel the need to secure the firearm anchor the holster to something.

You are okay with storing a Stainless firearm in a leather holster. I've never had any Ruger or S&W Stainless firearm even show the slightest hint of corrosion.
I don't know of any decent quality leather holster maker that uses Chrome tanned leather but, cheap Chrome tanned leather holsters will eat bluing off of a firearm.
I'm not just regurgitating internet blubbering. I have refinished blued handguns that have been Chrome tanned ruined.
