Don't use a holster, just put it in the safe for a safe queen.

'Wear' is a result of movement/friction between the two surfaces.
So, three factors come into play:
1. How well the gun 'fits' the holster.
2. How well the holster 'fits' the person.
3. The materiel the holster made of.
It is my observation that the first two are more important than the last.
I say this because if the 'fit' (X2) is right movement is minimized and thus wear is minimized.

Thanks for a constructive answer Jim. I am trying a new holster maker this time. I hope it fits well. I let everyone know the verdict after it arrives.

One thing I have discovered is most guns that show a lot of holster wear have been shot very little. People buy a gun and holster. They put the gun and holster under the seat of a truck and forget about the gun and holster until they trade the truck in. After a couple trucks we have a gun that looks like it has been around the world but has been shot less than 50 times.
