    Like it says, that lil plastic loop that came with my XD45 scares me; i need a real holster that envelopes the trigger. I plan on getting my carry permit in the very near future & would primarily be interested in a inside-the-waistband holster. I would just like to see what you guys use. It would be nice if the holster also had a spot to store 1 magazine.
    Thanks

    p.s. Sorry if this has been discussed to death already.

    Blackhawk Serpa CQC, or a quality leather holster. I like Galco Gunleather, and Don Hume, although there are a lot of good holster makers out there (DeSantis, Bianchi, Kramer, Milt Sparks, El Paso Saddlery, BladeTech, SideArmor...the list goes on and on).

    In IWB holsters I would encourage you to avoid the simple metal clip designs, and go for snapping loops or the hook clip style the Galco uses. I will say that I haven't seen alot of good concealed rigs that also carried a magazine on the holster. Most sell seperate magazine holder(s) which are usually worn on off gun side.

    Good Luck with your search, and let us know what you decide.

    I've been very pleased with Backwoods Leather out of Portsmouth, VA. Owner is Jame Kirk and although he frequents shows mostly in the Mid-Atlantic area, he does does ship product out. His pricing is ver reasonable and high quality.

    I have purchased 4 IWB leather holsters for XD45, Sig229, Beretta 92FS, and Colt NM 1911. All fit perfectly and feel secure to wear. Kirk has been coming to shows for the last 15-20 years. I would buy from him again.

    Contact info.

    I would look at the DM Bullard line. I carry both my XDm 40 and XD40 sc in thier Dual Carry. It is very comfortable conceals real well and carries the weight well. A must is a good gun belt also. They also have a IWB model called the Texas Conceal which has a Mag pouch which I think might be ny next for my SC.

    I have looked at the Crossbreed Supertuck IWB, Milit Sparks VM2 and several different holster for conceled carry.

    I looked at the Crossbreed Supertuck, to me it just does not look that secure or well built. Does anyone have any experience with it in the real world.

    I have been using Galco IWB for yrs. with my Sig 229 and never had a problem with it. But it tended to pinch my six when I sat down.

    Now I have an XD45 4" Service and Compact that I am looking to carry CCW. I live in Az so it is hard to find something that you can wear with only a
    t-shirt to cover it. I am a (lets say) very large man. Not fat just big enough to fill a door and block the sun like my wife says. :rolleyes:

    Iwb crossbreed holster

    Hey Slawth,

    Thanks for the pictures, I ordered a crossbreed holster last week and I can't wait for it to arrive. I have also purchased a number of other holster but this one seems to be the right fit for me. I get tired of pulling my firearm out and taking my shirt with it.

    No problem. I have been very pleased with mine. did you get the horsehide or cowhide version? Post up some pics when it comes in. I'd like to see the redesigned model with the metal clips.

    X2! You can't go wrong with a CB Super Tuck. They give a 10% discount to LEOs, military, and NRA members. Check their FAQs for more details.

    This is the syle holster I used with my XD45C. I loved it. It takes a little getting used to, but kept my weapon secure at 170+ mph on a motorcycle. I loved it

    +1 on the Desantis Tuck This II.
    I use one of these daily with my 4" XD 40. Absolutely love it. I'm a very tall, thin dude (6' 3", 165-ish lbz) and it conceals well. Plus, for less than 40 bucks, I thought it was a great deal.
