    I've found on kydex holsters, that it isn't so much the kydex that's hard on finishes, as it is the dirt that accumulates inside them. Same can happen with leather as I found out as a LEO. I use both these days and give them a wipe, same as I do the firearm.

    Turtle Wax brand Chrome Polish and Rust Remover, this stuff works like magic and protects for a long time too. It will even polish the chrome parts on your old muscle car or Harley too....

    This is why all of my carry guns are either Stainless Steel or coated in a corrosion-resistant finish like Cerakote.

    I'd rather pay a bit extra and not have to worry about rust or how to treat it.

    My advice to you would be to have your carry guns Cerakoted or treated with some form of FNC, and in the future pay a bit extra up front for a more corrosion-resistant finish than your typical matte bluing or black oxide finish. Because while their are lots of good products out their to help treat or remove rust corrosion, I feel it's best to mitigate the issue with a more durable/corrosion-resistant finish.

    I tend to break down my pistol and magazines and clean the lint out once a week anyway. I agree a better finish is preferable, but we shouldn't get complaisant when it comes to taking care of our carry pistols.

    Oh, no question there. It just seems to me that depending on where you live (or travel) it becomes much easier for firearms to rust, therefore it's best to go with a more durable finish so that should you find yourself in a highly corrosive environment, been working all day, sweating the whole time, and by the time you get home you're so tired that you put off cleaning your firearm in the meantime, it won't rust overnight.
