Any of you that own a stainless Wilson with a polished slide, how has your experience been with scratching the finish? I usually use kydex holsters since I always have a light on it and finding a leather holster to carry it with a light has proven pretty difficult. Just wondering if I’m likely to scratch stainless and the polished slide with kydex. I don’t mind wear but if I can, I’d like to avoid scratches.

Polished stainless looks great. I put a high luster polish on a Model 686 Smith revolver, and found that it shows little scratches much more than unpolished.
Formerly "flinch" on the forum, but that's a story in itself
