You have to expect carry guns to take some abuse and get some scratches, its a tough reality that all CCW/open carriers must face. It's a work gun, and its only time before it takes some kind of asthetic abuse from daily carry.
Maybe that one should be a safe queen, or a range gun only.
Not being mean, just realistic...I had to come to it with my PPQ. Good luck!
If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons made Rosie O' Donnell fat!
