Hello, please forgive me, I'm sure I'm in the wrong thread but just can't find the correct one.
Since it seems a few of you have owned DeSantis leather holsters before I thought you may know my answer & could help. I bought a DeSantis Black IWB leather holster w/ C belt clips, (Love it!) for my GLOCK 19, (Love it also!) My question & concern is; the outside of my gun (around barrel area, slide) is getting lighter in color (not solid dark black) due to the dye in the leather. Should I reholster only after the gun cools down or is there something I can due to restore the original "dark black color" on my GLOCK? It just doesn't look right. It looks like my gun has faded in color. Or should I get a different IWB holster, (Kydex, or some other material)?? I certainly would be be very grateful for any answers or recommendations from anybody else too.
Very Thankful,
M. Glass
I think you are confused. It is not possible to make Glocks look worse than when they are new. Ugly = ugly = ugly. And this is from a proud owner of 4 Glocks (at the moment).

It's summer and I am pocket carrying in an Uncle Mike's just about everywhere except at work. After August 1st I will be deep concealing in my university office and on my commute, using Galco Ankle Gloves and a DeepConceal shoulder rig.
