    I have a couple of OD glocks. I am thinking of carrying my OD g33 but I am not sure. I hate to get any holster wear on it thought of just keeping it to shoot. Would you carry the OD some or would you just get reg. black to carry? Also I am going to buy a IWB. Comp Tac, Crossbreed, or Galco??? Any help would be appreciated.

    How long have you carried your 26? What type of galco?

    A Glock is a Glock is a Glock. Carry it and enjoy it. It will never be a collectible show piece, no matter what color.

    I was going to ask if he was going to a gun fashion show but your answer is better.

    I use my ODs for competition (Steel and IDPA, among others), and they all have significant holster wear.

    I dont worry abt scratches and keeping my guns pretty. Thats just one less thing to worry abt if you ever get into a situation where you have to fight.

    I know it sounds strange.
    And all my guns are like 800/1000 bucks each.
    But I like to keep them pristine, and only use ballistic nylon holsters.
    They don't need to break in and leave no wear on my guns at all.

    Any holster will leave marks after a couple of years. Here's what my EDC IWB:

    I sold about six holsters I didn't wear/like and bought this for my G23. 2:00, 3:00 & 4:00. Comfortable and finds its own slant.

    I take carrying way too seriously to use cheap, low quality holsters. Guns can be refinished if you so choose. I just leave the wear there.

    Its a glock just carry it.......thats like buying a hammer and not wanting to hit anything with it cause your scared you might scratch it, if you want a waaaaaayyy over priced safe queen buy a kimber

    I carry my G23 in a comptac IWB and i love the wear it puts on the slide....gives it personality

    I carry my OD G26 in a black CBST. I'd like to get a natural tanned horse hide as the black finish is rubbing off on the OD frame.

    I will say that after 2-3 yrs my 36 is just starting to show wear.
    I'd use it and not really worry to much!!

    Last thing in my mind is holster wear. Imo it adds character to the firearm. If you are carrying a 800-1200 dollar gun and are worried about holster wear your priorities are not straight. I would never carry any of my 800+ guns for the simple reason that should you ever have to use it, that gorgeous firearm you were worried about scuffing up is now sitting neglected in an evidence bag for a year or more. The scuffing on it will be the least of my worries when you get your thousand dollar piece back after the mistreatment and care neglect its seen over the course of being in LE custody. High dollar doesn't necessarily = reliable. Carry that glock and dont fret

    I have carried my OD27 in either a Crossbreed Supertuck or a Glock Sport Combat for about 16 months. I guess there is some holster wear but it does not matter. It's a Glock, not a Kimber.
