Lookinh for a good holster

#1

Post by Texasboy281 » Fri Apr 01, 2016 12:26 pm

Im looking for a good holster to carry.... Anyone know of any good holsters for a XD 9mm subcompact? I prefer one that is in the waist band with the belt clip high so most of the gun is concealed .... I order one from Amazon and the belt clip is to low in my opinion leaving much of the gun exposed causing printing when I wear it any one know of a good holster.... Thanks in advance!!!

If you want leather check out High Noon. If not someone else will offer a suggestion.

Curious what holster you got from amazon ? Might give us an idea of what you don't want. Currently during the week my EDC that I am using this holster with my XDs 9mm:

Rides well IMO, and doesn't take much to put on/take off. Can't wear it in the office(or I fear getting spotted wearing it due to company policy) so I take it off as I get in/out of the car coming/going to work. The leather feels nice... It is a softer leather so I'm pretty sure it'd collapse if in you remove the gun while being worn. I don't particularly care but I've seen some people complain about that issue.

That's it like I said I like everything about it.... The only bad part is where the belt clip is located my opinion

There are many places doing leather holsters that do good work, for leather I prefer D M Bullard out in Azle, TX. Does good work, and is in Texas. I had an Alien Gear holster that works well enough. However I have switched to, and loving, my Raven Concealment Eidolon. Warning on the Eidolon, it is some assembly required since it is customize-able.

Yeah... that does look like it would ride a little high. The 2 Galco's I have sits just right above the belt line. If your not liking the spare clip holster, you can always get the one without:

I've had my original galco holster just like the one I just linked since about 2008ish and its still in great condition, only recently swapped to the one w/ a spare mag after getting it as a Christmas gift.

Two words

I have tried several holsters and haven't run across one I like better.

If a kydex holster is to your liking take a look at the link with the deep ride option. Tried one for a Glock 26 and liked it so well got one for a Glock 43.

I have a Stealth Gear IWB and love it! It has a nylon type material on the back instead of leather and stays cool on hot days.

Make a holster yourself. I have about $60 in material for all of these.
I'm not crazy about the belt clips. I clip them over pants under my belt. May change them one day.

The one with the SP101 is re-purposed. I originally made it for a 1911, that's why the top of the leather doesn't quite line. Very simple to and fun to make.

I have the SPRINGFIELD subcompact in 9mm and the 40 S&W. Cooler weather the Hidden Hybrid. I can't stand the sweat that it cause in the summer. In the summer I like the Garrett Industries holsters. The Kydex does not let the sweat get to the firearm and the herman oak leather helps keeps the finish looking good a bit longer. OWB Ross gun in South Africa and Tucker Byrd. These holsters also fit the Glock 19/23. I wear custom clothing and printing is not an issue. For me it was in my mind, because no one was looking to see if I had a gun.
