God gave me a belt clip and a holster. He gave my wife a holster with a clip, she keeps either clipped to her purse, or clipped to her pocket when she walks in the morning, etc., and is not carrying a purse.
There's more than one way to skin a cat!
Sorry you are bummed, I can tell you are. if there is not a good resolution, do consider cleaning the dust and carrying the BB differently, is all I was recommending. It is a good device, still.
