I’m not keen on anything that could possible score or damage the interior of the barrel being shoved in the barrel, this includes those pistol racks etc that consist of coated rods for example. Seen some M9s get damaged in the service from objects in the barrel jostling around (on a coated wire rack bouncing around a truck) may have been incidental, but enough to not want to do it myself.Keeps stuff from going to in the barrel.
What, in your experience, has this been an operational experience for you?
This info could be crucial.
Looks to me that it might be necessary to keep the muzzle end of the pistol within the confines of the skeletonised frame of the holster.Keeps stuff from going to in the barrel.
