I was looking into getting a pocket holster or an iwb...any thoughts? This is my first gun that will be used for concealed carry. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

An XDs is pushing the envelope for pocket carry. That doesn't mean some don't do it....they simply don't present the smallest footprint and some folks and/or clothing will be challenged to conceal it properly.

I can't give you an IWB suggestion as I carry OWB so have no experience there.

I use a remora holster for mine, so I can swap between pocket/IWB (depending on pocket size) without needing a second holster.

Congrats on your purchase. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Thanks for the suggestions! Arizona-I do like how that holster looks. I'm going to check out their site. Otis-I haven't heard of the remora holster. Googling it now. JW-I just took to the range a couple days ago. Preformed flawlessly. I am shooting to the left every time though. I tried adjusting the amount of trigger finger but it did not help. Going back to the range this week and see if I can figure out what I'm doing wrong. Thanks again

Are the sights adjustable?

I carry mine IWB in a Sticky holster which I've found to be extremely comfortable.

They are not. It's gotta be my technique. I have not been shooting pistols for very long. Little over a year. I've become pretty accurate with my full size Xd9 so it is probably me. I just got the Pearce grip extensions to try out. Hopefully that will help. I don't have big hands but trying to fit three fingers on the grip is possible just not comfortable. I do think I might eventually get night sights for it though. I like the slant pros from Heine that are on my Xd9. I like the fiber optic but like have the night sights.

I bought a one to try and so far I like it, just haven't carried before. So it's taking some getting used to. I see that my style of clothes will depict how I'm going to carry though. What position do you find most comfortable for you to carry?
