Paul's website does not exist. Not sure if it ever had. Take a look here http://www.1911forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=493815that url doesn't come up on the card. Wanted to see some of his work. Love galleries.
So as I usually don't mind holster wear on my weapons, I don't think too hard on what materials they're made from. I like an honest wear on a blued gun....just do. That being said my latest purchase has a black duracoat over stainless...I don't want that too worn. And I may be jinxing myself here, but I might have a brand new Dan Wesson Valor in duty coat come the end of today...again one I would want to take care of the finish.
BTW, your thread made me check that the holster I bought here last night was right handed
