Maybe its just me but I have noticed that most people I've seen with a 1911 in person, on a tv show or the gun shows like American Guardian, American Rifleman, etc use leather holsters for 1911's. Could it be because leather has been around longing than these new Kydex and Kydex/leather hybrids. Could it be that Kydex seems to add more holster wear then leather. I noticed this in the Glocks, M&P's and XD's. This is not an entry into the 1911 fact book just an observation.
