Welcome!

Check out CompTac holsters. They are IWB. Comfortable and very adjustable.

As mentioned before, the Blackhawk Serpa is a quick OWB holster. A good design and another option I would recommend.

I have a Streamlight TLR-2 (light/laser combo). The ergonomics of it are great. It can easily be operated with your trigger finger without changing your grip on your pistol. It can be toggled between light, laser, and light + laser. Great for home defense, but might be a pain if you plan on having it on the pistol you are going to carry daily because you would have to remove the unit to allow your pistol to fit in the holster.

I like Trijicon tritium night sights. They are 3-dot. It all comes down to preference. I am familiar with the 3-dot and am comfortable with them.

Because you have the right to. That's all the reason I needed. I'm sure you can ask around and people will definitely give you hundreds of reasons why you should.

Definitely think about it.

From a home defense standpoint would you invest in night sights and a light? If the light is on does that defeat the purpose of the sights? I could see not turning the light on to keep your location concealed.

I'm a rookie just like the OP and I'm also prepping my XD 9 4" for home defense. Not planning to conceal but will be taking it with me on road trips.

I have to "present reasonable proof as to why I need to CC" according to my state

Is printing an offense in your location, OP?

No, it's not, but I would like to keep it as concealed as possible. I just got a desantis owb holster that is very low profile and prints a little. But I would like a nice iwb holster.

I guess i'm only planning on using the light for home defense and keeping it on at home. But, night sights or just changing the sight profile might help my shooting a little better. I had some issues the other day with a white sight on white target.

No, that's exactly why. My state wouldn't consider that as enough reason
