LCP getting crusty

I just bought an LCP, and have an issue with the holster that came with the gun. At least I think it's the holster. If I leave the gun in the holster over night, a white crust forms on the side of the slide at the rear of the extractor. Doesn't pop up anywhere else. I know, take it out of the holster at night, but that isn't an answer as to why. Does anyone else have this happening? It wipes right off, but but will be back the next day. Never had this happen before.

Sounds like sweaty salt deposits

I have seen sweat deposits, but this is inside the holster and it's just a week old. When in my pocket, the left side of the gun is against my leg and the crust is on the right side. Haven't done any sweating with it in my pocket yet either.

No. Nylon or canvas of some type. Has a suede strip on the outside.

I have kept my LCP in a holster for months on end and never had a problem. How humid is it where you live?

LOL....Our humidity is normally considered to be rain in other parts of the country, but lately it hasn't been bad. Inside the house it's lower because of AC. I've used nylon holsters before and never had this issue regardless of humidity or temp.

Not sure what might be going on but uncle mikes makes a very similar holster that is relatively cheap you could try one and see if the results are the same or different, if different then that would isolate it to the holster

I guess that's about as scientific as my mind gets LOL

Well I'm stretching a bit but it looks like we need an alternative theory... is it possible the holster is very dusty? Perhaps the dust is adhering to any oil on the slide and extractor.

I stand corrected here. It isn't the holster. I left the gun out last night and the same crusty stuff was there this morning. It's actually piling up into a little ridge. Only at the back of the extractor. Picture attached (Hopefully)

Fungi or mold, interesting to see you have one of the LCP's made in North Carolina.

And here all of this time I only thought Humans were the only thing that got Huncuss of the Bungcuss.
Looks like we can transmit it to Firearms.
Don't show it to any Haz-Met people They will Triple wrap it and seal it up in a 55 gal. Drum ship it off to Area 51 and charge You a Monthly Storage Fee.
Yikes, that is some Strange Stuff.
Just a thought, saturate the area with Alcohol and see if that stops it.
And not the Drinking type.
Good Luck.

I concur. If that were my gun, I'd thoroughly clean it with alcohol, perhaps even soak it, let it completely dry, wipe it with a light coat of Remoil and then lube it as normal again. Others may have a better suggestion but that's my two cents.

Huncuss of the Bungcuss? LOL, I haven't heard that one before. It's going in the archive. I'll give the alcohol a try too. Thx.
