I am not a fan of wear but I accept it especially on a carry gun. I prefer stainless because I can restore it factory new on my own, but on blued guns there is always the option to send it back to the factory for refinishing at a nominal price.
love me some finish wear, so long as it's earned honestly. Or you obtain it with honest wear
This is a good point. Holster and carry wear I can deal with, but idiot scratches whether done on my part or an idiot friends I cannot, and usually have to take care of right away or it eats away at me.
