A high quality holster is not just designed to protect your gun, but to protect you and those you come in contact with while carrying. Fit is critical. The tighter fit of the gun in the holster, the more wear that will be inflicted on the gun by holstering and un-holstering it. The looser the fit, the more wear that will be inflicted on the gun by carrying it.
