Really want to purchase "the answer" for my XD, also have seen the Versa max II which is all leather..

Will I have to worry about 'holster wear' on a hard chromed gun when it comes to holstering it in kydex? Even though the answer allows the muzzle to be exposed..

Holster wear should not be a problem with hard chrome, so I'd probably go with Kydex. It's generally thinner than leather, thus providing better concealment, and doesn't absorb sweat. If you've ever seen a smelly, old, discoloured leather holster, you'll quickly understand how nice that latter aspect is.

I have holster wear on my hard chromed XD.

I got some dirt or grit or something inside my holster during a pistol class and when I got home I noticed a spot on my slide was all scratched up.

It won't rust, so it's no big deal.

well wouldent the same thing happen if you got dirt in your leather holster.
I think you would have to take that posibility in to account with any holster and try to ceap it as clean ans you do your hard chrome gun.

Yep, it would have happened no matter what.

The holster was a cheap kydex OWB Uncle Mike's.

I have been wearing a leather holster for years and it doesn't stink. Plus the fact that it is three times more comfortable (at least for me). I cannot tolerate Kydex.

I've got the Answer, I had a C-TAC. The leather from the Answer wears a bit more than the kydex, but when the kydex wears, it does it good. I've got permenant scratches in my slide from the C-TAC, and a bit of front-edge slide wear from the leather Answer. The kydex on my Tucker now wears less than the leather. Pretty much, everything is gonna wear. Get what's comfortable (the answer :wink: )
