The acids used in leather tanning will accelerate wear and promote rust on a firearm stored for a period of time in a leather holster, especially a blued finish. On the flip side, if you take care of the weapon it's usually not an issue. Just don't store the weapon in leather.
I have always preferred the lined leather holsters over any other, and have yet to have any significant wear or rust issue.
