It all depends on you individually, what fits you well, and how you want to carry (IWB or OWB). It also depends on how much protection you want for the firearm and if you want a retention strap.

In general, nobody ever complains about a Milt Sparks VM II for IWB carry. **IF** Lightningarms or Topgun has the model you need in stock. Otherwise, it's a long wait.

Because they are a local (SW Ohio) outfit, are very friendly, and have a shop as well as being accessible at the gun shows, we could add http://stonerholsters.com to the list.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

Thanks, Brian. Added to the list. Their thigh and shoulder carry holsters look interesting.

Been without power Sunday morning until now...on the plus side, my Mernickle shoulder holster arrived today. I'll have to take some pics after I adjust it and such...and make sure the pipes are busted...

The way I understand the legal deal about that is that to be an AOW it must hide or cover the grip that is at an angle to the bore, whether or not that does is up to the powers that be (ATF).

On the holster for the XD-9. I just bought a crossbreed supertuck and I really like it. It is an IWB holster, they do make some owb holsters as well.

Have a great day today unless you have made other plans :-).

I ran into this guy at the gun show in Columbus over the weekend. He is based out of Dublin and makes wicked kydex holsters.

I just oredered a Serpa concealment holster from Blackhawk. It has a locking mechanism in case of a scuffle you don't get your pistol taken from you. However, you do lose time on your draw i would imagine seeing that you have to press the button to release your gun. I guess with practice you would get better and it would become second nature. I'm still a rookie ccw, i would hate to have my gun taken from me in a fight and killed with it. I do plan on taken advance classes that would better prepare me so i wouldn't have to wear that type of holster.
As for life and love, I put them in GODS hands.....for protection of life and love GOD put in my hands a Springfield XD!

Just an fyi, I carry a 4" xd 45 and I have owned about every holster config and brand out there. I was always a huge fan of Galco, but recently I found DM Bullard Leather out of Tx. I purchased a dual carry and it's the greatest IWB holster I have found. As a matter of fact I like it so much I will not be looking for a replacement ever. I don't believe that you can find a better made holster, regardless of the price. It did take a month and a half to get it, but it was worth it. :D

All of my leather (including belts) comes from Mike Taurisano of Tauris holsters http://www.taurisholsters.com/. I mix it up with Comp Tac depending on attire, but I love Mike's made-to-order gear. Specifically, I use his standard highride in neutral cant with thumbbreak (I got married in one- black of course), the dual mag carrier, and his ankle holster. I have seen others, but would not wear any other ankle holster. When I can call the guy up and tell him, directly, what I want and he does it right, it's a good thing.

I'd like to submit another to the list. www.rgrizzleleather.com. I just got one of Ryan's city slicker holsters. It's very well made, not too expensive and fast turn around time. About 2 weeks from order to delivery.
