thanks for the quick response.....good to know. I have several thousands (???) of draws from a kydex holster with this pistol. The only "wear" is shiny areas. So far, I haven't seen any abnormal wear around the slide stop notch in the slide and such. It took me about 700 to 1000 rounds to for the break-in plus feeling confident enough to use it in competition. I find it funny when people say it is normal to need 300+ rounds to break in a DW. OK...well, after the failures during that break in period, how many more rounds do you need without failure to have confidence in it? Rhetorical. For me, it is several hundred. That makes it a 1,000 round break-in by my thinking.
