What's the advantage of clapping your leather holster in plastic?

Some people hate the click in and out of most Kydex. With the leather lining, it is silent. It also allows a very smooth draw since it is holding the gun with more surface area than typical Kydex (which is holding the gun by the trigger guard).
I have a Tucker like you describe. It is a very well made holster but I am not sure that I care that much about the leather lining. I would buy another but it would be for the quality and design rather than the leather lining.

Pros & Cons to everything;

Pros
quite, no click of holster retention on your big honking Roscoe*
possibly less wear, no hard plastic to scratch your big honking Roscoe*

Cons
now you have leather retaining moisture next to your big honking Roscoe*
now you have leather retaining grit that will scratch your big honking Roscoe*

So what do you want to secure your big honking Roscoe*?


*Just so y'all know DKing is known to tote a S&W 500 or his cute little mini Uzie
What else do you expect a lawyer to tote?

My uzi is full sized no a mini or micro.

I just use a leather holster.

I have, "The Answer," by Tucker gunleather. The draw is mostly silent, but because of the stitching at the mouth of the holster, my FCS making a "zip" sound when I draw. FWIW

I use the Tucker almost exclusively. 2 or three years now. I like the weight and retention, as well as the silence of draw.

Being in NM dust has not proven to be an issue, even on multiple day mountain rides. One of mine even survived a horse fall.

I also used the IDPA version with great success, 11 matches from 2008-2009, the last 9 I won.

I have yet to find better.

Caring about finish wear on a gun you carry is silly. Get whats comfortable and what you'll actually carry.
