really depends on how you wanna carry it. I personally like the BlackHawk Serpa Autolock. I wear mine OWB on a paddle for my 1911 class. Serpa Concealment Holster comes with paddle and belt loop. sporter type holster you mount tp platform you like and set the cant to your feel.
I am a big dude…. you can buy kydex/leather mix for IWB. I here they are comfortable.

I actually bought that exact holster last weekend, along with a tagua leather owb yesterday. I’ll probably return one,just not sure which yet. I have a Savoy leather holster ordered but that will take approx 3mths. So I needed something decent in the meantime. But I wanted minimal wear on my gun while waiting…

I personally don’t think there is such a thing as a “no wear” holster. My opinion is get the best holster fit you can (fit includes gun-to-holster as well as holster-to-you). For all of my carry guns (carry meaning on my body) I have nylon and leather holsters (no kydex – yet), each for it’s own particular purpose (e.g. on horseback, out hunting with the dogs, working on fence in snake country, CC, …). And because my guns are “user” guns, I think the more wear on the gun the better because that means I’m “using” the gun more. Leather is my favorite, and a lined leather “glove” would seem to have the least wear.

I agree, I like horse hide or Rino (very hard to get, it has to be from an old museum exhibit or private collection,) and the finish will wear after a couple years. Then you get to send it off and try a new finish!
