Really ,if it is a shooter, its worth is already reduced . I don't worry about wear myself I'll be putting too many rounds thru it.
As far as a holster, Milt Sparks Summer Special, 20 years and still going strong.
Use an appropriate cleaning solvlent for the material in question and keep at it. As I said it will reduce the rate of wear but it won't eliminate it.
Carried guns get scratches and wear spots, not just from the holster, but from being along for the ride everywhere you go.
I have a weird dent/smear in the polymer frame of my CC pistol, I assume it is from running into something while it was holstered.
I've been packing that same pistol for a few months, and it already shows some smoothing of the texture at the high spots, which I'm sure will become wear given time.
All you can do to minimize it is:
1-get a good holster custom-molded for your gun
2-minimize holstering/drawing (load it up, holster it, and LEAVE IT THERE until you need it out)
3-figure out what it will cost to refinish it down the road, you can always save up for the super-duper indestructible finish job after you beat the crap out of it
Im kinda excited to see it wear a bunch more,Taurus puts the bluing on thin anyhow.
It also has a few scratches that came from i don't know where,but a sharpie fixed that up.
If your gonna use it,its gonna get wear and tear no matter what you do.
lol, that's awesome
carry it in a Milt Sparks #Axiom ( OWB w/FBI Cant) holster
no wear showing after a year and a half.
