    I carry my Walther P99 almost everywhere I can carry legally. Once I upgrade to a larger caliber (hopefully sometime next year), I'll carry that gun as well.

    I carry my G27, but I really haven't had my CCW long enough to cause wear marks. I carry in a Sidearmor so I don't think it will cause as much wear as leather. I also wipe-er' down frequently with a CLP cloth followed with a silicone cloth. :)

    My G29 has that nice, warn in look. I have fired well over 20k rounds through it in the 2 years I have owned it.

    All of my guns get fired quite a bit. My shotguns really seem to get a workout, since I enjoy shooting them the most.

    I carry a Para-Ordnance C7-45 LDA daily. I don't worry about wear since being stainless steel it is easy to buff out minor blemishes, and I really don't care if it isnt perfect as long as it shoots when I pull the trigger and the bullet goes in the K5

    It's rare to be able to legally carry here in CA. I can't so I don't. On the plus side, it keeps my guns looking new and pretty. :p

    My carry piece is stainless steel, it has a bit of blemish on one side from being in my right front pocket everyday of the week.

    I carry a Glock-19 everyday, but it does not show much wear.

    I often carry a stainless Mod 60 LS and it looks like new. I take it when out for walks every morning and when out quail hunting (for snakes, etc.) Does not get any abuse.

    Worn scratched guns with missing blueing rarely make the owner want to run out and buy a $300 dig-cam- Thats my little club anyway ;)

    Look at the finish on my Kahr K9.

    It's definitely been carried.

    I keep touching up the parkerizing on my Officer's ACP, otherwise it'd look more like the Kahr.

    Here's my carry gun, which has been carried for nearly 4 years. In fact the old holster wore out, and this photo shows my new-at-the-time OWB High Noon. No noticeable wear in photo, but the bottom of the trigger guard does have some shiny spots from insertion into the holster.

    No Digi cam here....

    But if I had one, I could show you a Hi Power and G23 that both need reparkerizing, and a worn bead blasted 640-1. OTOH, there is really nothing wrong with honest wear :)....

    Oh, yeah. . .I pack it a lot. But being stainless, and carried in a nice suede holster or sometimes in soft cotton in a fanny pack, it doesn't show a lot of wear.

    Now, my blue Colt .45 SAA is another story. It shows many years of holster wear.

    Yes. I have multiple copies of all of my guns ...

    ... Note the wear & tear on the bottom two (especially the very bottom one) but the top one is in mint condition.

    Did you ever see the movie "Dogs of War"? Oh yes- I carry, along with guns near the door, and in the fridge, and in the bathroom and even on the garage bench. In the car, in the briefcase, and in the wintercoat.
    :p
    I usually carry the 239 sig in 40 S&W or the P-99 in 9mm. When my clothing permits, I carry a 1911 style.
    My Ed Brown Custom Classic is a favorite for carry.
    This is not to say I don't have a bunch of vault queens, I do. But I do have daily users also.
    And the one in the ice box.....;)

    I carry this one about 4-6 times a week, its a tribute to the toughness of Bear Kote. Im too ashamed to take a pic of my NAA 22 that always rides in my front pocket, its waaaaaay to disgusting...
