    sprngfield changed up their site and to me, it is a bit wonky. hard to find stuff now
  8. I line my holsters with deer or elk. what causes damage to the bluing on a gun is friction. and you are going to get friction on any surface you use suede after a time becomes burnished the same as veg tan. it all boils down to preference, I love this common sense comment, ''' wouldn’t the meat side of the leather be considered suede? So if we use no liner, it is effectually suede lined, and running the risk of capturing dirt grit etc.?''

    I was having problems seeing and had it checked out seems i had cateracts. i had both eyes operated on and now I can see like a old buzzard The cost wasn't to bad, My insurance deductible was $150.00 per eye That includes everything But the eye drop meds were HIGH. I needed 3 eye drops My co pay was $15.00 each for 2 and $75.00 for the 3rd OUCH !!!!!!
  11. I disagree with a veg tan liner go with a suede type liner, be it Pig, goat or deer or elk it is soft. veg tan will rub the blue off the gun over time
