    Over time the leather will attack the metal, ever notice a leather cartridge belt loaded with ammo, after a while they start to corrode and turn green, it the chemicals they use for processing, even if you oil it up it still will do it. Nylon or cotton will breathe and help protect the weapon by not retaining moisture..

    I like nylon. Light weight, wears well, doesn't rot.

    I went for Uncle Mike in Nylon,I think
    I can store it in the holster because it breathes well.:D

    did you know a Prince Albert can will hold 300 rounds of 22 LR?

    I use canvas or nylon. They breath and dry quicker.

    just so's I'm clear on this . . .
    Are you storing it in your car, in a holster or are you
    bringing the BOB in every night? what is the weather
    like in your part of the world.
    If you're 'storing' it in your car, use a gun sock.
    keep it out of the holster until . . .

    I really hope it is secured in your vehicle. Do you store the weapon in a safe that is mounted to the vehicle? Tuffy makes a concealed carry safe that mounts under the front seat of Jeeps, I'm sure they have them for other vehicles as well.

    Thanks for sharing that Turtle!!! I knew that Tuffy had made one for the JK and that they were in the design process for the TJ/LJ but hadn't heard that it was completed yet.

    Now I have to wait for them to come out with something for my YJ ...
