Ruger Mark I,II,III & IV Target Pistols

Every now and then, quite often enough, I get a question concerning why sort of holster a Ruger Mark Target pistol owner can get that doesn't shave leather out of. Well, my first response is NONE, not with that style sight in place. Most of you probably already know what those older target version front sights look like. They are indeed sharp at the rear face and are indeed prone to shaving grooves in a leather holster when drawn from it. The remedy does not necessarily involve a new holster, but maybe a **NEW** type of front sight:
This modified front sight will never score leather out of a good holster, but instead will glide right on out and then back in again, never removing any leather at all.
Ouch! I can imagine, the top of those factory sights are quite sharp.
Yep. I was holding holster in left hand and pulling pistol out with my right hand to condition it a bit so the draw was smoother and I left the meat of my hand in the way of the front sight hood and that front sight acted like a darn shovel on to the meat of my hand. I was able to carefully put things back together and it ended up healing and the skin/meat survived for the most part, but that was a lesson I only needed to get once.
No smart phone, no camera, pretty simple....
Lately it feels like dial up speeds of old....

Don't see what the big deal is, it looks just like the one SGW posted but with a shorter barrel.
