Default Carry

A firearm is a tool. Tools get used and scratched. Expensive tools get cared for better and get put into cases for transport. My expensive tools have cases/holsters that prevent much of the scratches and dents. My inexpensive tools get scratched and I do not fret over it.

Default I carry every day

Tools do get scratched. But every one thinks my Glocks are so ugly, I feel that the scratches gives them personality.

I find that I prefer to carry my ugly guns. My poor old Keltec 32 has taken a real beating, but my new PF9 will probably be giving it a break as soon as I find the best carry load and get it broke in well.

I have not carried for a loooong time, its hard to plan the day around the fact that I am packing. What to wear, where I can go etc...

My carry gun has alot less blue on it now than it did when I bought it 16 years ago
But as said before it's a tool and it gets used and use leaves wear marks.

I tell myself that it gives the gun character

Hard chrome your gun - it is the most scratch resistant finish U can do. I have my P99c slide hard chromed. No holster wear
