Old Fart, I prefer a holster that covers the entire length of the slide or barrel myself, with a closed end if possible. I carried a gun in uniform for quite a few years. It did get banged up, scratched up, etc. It would only have been worse with one of the shortened holsters. Of course, holster makers apparently prefer them because most holsters now days seem to be shorter than the slide. No doubt easier and cheaper to build than full length and/or closed end holsters, and more "one size fits all" since barrel/slide length isn't critical to holster fit. And most buyers, either do not notice or don't care...
