Anyone with any experience carrying the new RTF2 rough finish? Only thing I heard was police covering the grip because it was tearing up the inside of their shirt sleeves. I plan to carry concealed and don't want it to rub inside of shirt/vest, or cause printing problems by catching on the fabric. I like the feel, but its pretty aggressive. I'd like to have some snow tires in this finish!! haha
No experience yet but the G19 in my avatar is mine and has the RTF2. I have heard some of the some reports that you have about the RTF2 causing clothing/wear issues for LEO's. Supposedly, feedback from LEO's is what caused Glock to come up with a different "RTF" for the Gen4 guns.
I just applied for my CHL this morning and am awaiting a holster for my 19. Being left-handed definitely makes it harder to find holsters in stock, be it at the range store or online. But hopefully I'll have a holster soon and can start giving you some feedback.
Another option to provide some relief for your own skin when carrying IWB might be a holster that has some leather or other material between the grip and your side. Right now, an example escapes my memory but there are some companies offering holsters that put a shield between the gun's grip and your side. That might help to partially alleviate some of the rubbing issues that you are worried about.
i too am a lefty. would love to know what you come up with for a good concealed holster. Hopefully, Jersey passes the law that is coming up in front of the state reps soon.
