    Hello guys!! I'm looking for a good holster for my XDM9 Compact. I currently have a Uncle Mikes Holster... I love it!! Fits good,feels great,but I have a huge problem with it. The front sight, each time I pull it out it tore the inside material. So each time I pull it out, the front sight get caught on the material. Any suggestions on a similar type of holster that it won't tear up?!?!?! You know how dangerous it is if I ever need to used it. Least thing I need for the pistol to get caught in it... Here's a picture of it. Thank You!!

    You probably want leather or kydex. Probably leather for comfort.

    Your lgs probably has a big box of leather holsters. Atleast they usually do in my area. I usually prefer to test run a holster when I can.

    Yeah that sucks. Being as cheap as I am I would try to patch that area with something a little more robust and less "grabby" first.

    I forget. There are a few. Just start a thread like "who here makes holsters?" Or something. They will pop up.

    MtnMan 13 nice to see someone recomend a "Leather" holster. Holsters made from black rags just don't appeal to me.:D

    I use leather for the most part. If I was gonna go plastic I would want one of the push through holsters. (forget what country's spec-ops uses them) but I've always wanted one. It's a drop leg rig where you carry without one in the chamber. You grab the grip and push the gun down through the holster and it racks the slide for you while you draw.
    Anyone remember who uses/makes them?

    I wanted a leather holster for it,But bought the cheapo one for the meanwhile. But trust me,leather is all I've been thinking. It just so hard to get them outhere. Especially for my XDM. If they get them they run out,especially Wisconsin in Wisconsin passing the ccw law. I just want to get the leather fitted for it....
