Kydex has a number of advatages over leather and porous fabrics. One of these is that it will not soak up moisture which could rust your gun. The other is that Kydex will not hold grit in it's pores which might scratch your gun. Putting a leather or soft fabric liner in a Kydex holster negates these two advantages. Kydex on it's own will not cause any more wear to your guns finish than other materials. Stay safe, Gary

What happened to helweg holsters ? are they still available ? I would sure love to replace my Hogue power speed with a Helweg holster . Powerspeed is a nice fast holster..I like it's function but I would rather have a Helweg or an older leather IPSC holster.
