Looking at getting a new Milt Sparks holster. Is the rough side out for IWB carry comfortable or does it tend to rub, chafe, etc. Figure the smooth side will be easier on the finish? Also, how are lined holsters on the finish and are they much more expensive? Does Kydex wear a gun as much as leather? Lot of questions. Thanks.

Rough or smooth side out IWB holsters don't seem to make any difference to me.
You can't go wrong with a Milt Sparks holster
Tony runs a first class operation. Their holsters are some of the best in the business.
If you want to try a Kydex holster let me know I would be happy to let you try a few of mine.

All my leather IWB's are rough side out, so not much help there. I've switched to Kydex IWB, and like it a lot, but know others who don't. Mine's Blade-Tech. There isn't as much give to the Kydex, I think I happen to be built just right to use one. Have some other friends who like their Ky-Tac IWB's. My suggestion with Kydex is that you try wearing one first. They won't conform to you like a leather, so it needs to feel right at the start.

You can't go wrong with the Milt Sparks though...good stuff!

<><> Hunter Rose, I have a MS SS II RSO. I also have other IWB's, smooth side out. I prefer the smooth side out. The reason is, if my shirt rides up it is easier to just put my hand in between the shirt and pants and pull the shirt back down. It seems the RSO makes it harder to get the shirt back down. It is just a matter of personal preference. Today is one of the days that I prefer the Summer Special II, as that is what I am wearing right now. You can't go wrong with a Milt Sparks, or any of the other quality holsters. Hope it's not too confusing. BTW, I think you will get holster wear with any holster.

I'm not a fan of rough side out holsters...the logic behind them is they won't move around as much but if your pants are a bit tight that day, it's harder to slide them in and if you happen to wear it aainst the skin, it chafes. I have a delfatti isp-3 with smooth side out and it doesn't move at all since it is anchored very well with an ingeneous belt pad...loops are the reason holsters tend to move around since they allow more play on the belt...
