The first set, Prairie Rattler were carried for some time and no loss of scales. They became soft to the touch but still providing good purchase.
The gun went in for re-finish and got the Timber (Canebrake) Rattler hides and has become my Bar-B-Que gun. They are still "New" as I don't carry the gun anymore.
I have never shot the snake hide stocks in the rain/wet condition. Not sure how they would work but I don't think the snake slides off the trail when its raining.
