Looking for a leather holster for my XD40 4" think I have narrowed it down to a couple of holsters finally, now I was wondering what anyone thought of lined holsters versus unlined holsters? is it worth the extra $$$ to get one lined?

lined holsters tend to cut down on "holster wear" marks on the pistol as it doesn't rub so harshly on the gun. You have to be careful though. Many of the lining materials will tend to hold water so you will need to take some extra precaustions and perform extra maintenance to both holster and gun if carrying in inclement weather.

I really dont see a reason to line holsters. I get asked to once in a while but just dont see a reason. Suede style liners tend to grab dirt/debris and keep it. Some would say this is worse on your finish than a plain leather inner...
