*shakes his skinnyjean emopants butt*

Haha yes. That's exactly why I'm looking for a shield in 9mm. I like to consider my pants "fashionably skinny", not emo

Time to suck it up and tighten the belt. You're carrying a gun not an ipod.

edit: I really hope you guys are kidding with the skinny jeans, your man card is at stake here.

It's not the holster, it's the gun. The XDM is a double stack and wider that your Kahr. Perhaps you'd be more comfortable with a single stack XDS - it will compare more closely with the Kahr, while having all the features of the XDM (except for the size).

Then again, if the reason you prefer the XDM is the wider grip, then you're faced with the classic CCW dilemma: bigger gun (easier to shoot), or smaller gun (easier to conceal)?

Other thoughts is a Comp Tac CTAC. It's about as minimalist of a holster as you can get:

TonyDedo - thanks for the insight on the CompTac. Hadn't seen that one before and will look into it. Looks like there would be less excess material there - so theoretcially it should use less space in the jeans. Might lose some comfort though.

Guys - I don't have an iPod, and ya'll don't wanna see me in skinny jeans. Also I would love an XDS if came in 9 and I doub very seriaouly that's gonna happen anytime soon. Just not a 45 fan. Everything else I have is 9 or 40 and personally for something that small, Id prefer a 9. Also looked at the shield. Had an M&P 40 that I couldn't shoot worth a crap. I didn't like the trigger on the M&P so I'll not be looking at those. I like the 2 passive safeties of the XD. It's why I'm moving away from the PM9 with manual safety and another reason why I won't go with a Shield.

You didn't mention it, but at $40 I'd guess your hybrid is cowhide, and that you got for a really good price.

See you owned a Glock, did you ever try carrying it in a hybrid holster so you have something to compare it to versus a PM9 single stack? I would guess it's width is similar to an XD since they are both double stack.

You can shave a little off the leather width by choosing horsehide over cowhide. It is more expensive and slightly less comfortable than the thicker cowhide, but I find the horsehide leather to be about 1/2 the thickness of the 8/9 cowhide used in a typical hybrid. One benefit of horsehide is it is a denser product, so it's less likely to absorb moisture as quickly as cowhide.

You are not going to shave the width of the gun except by getting something thinner, perhaps something in the same caliber, but in a single stack.

I have the XDS and XDm compact in .45 with a hybrid holster for each and both carry equally as well with a slight edge to the XDS because it's a little thinner.

Feel it helps to go up one pant size. It may help some to try out some pants with the elastic waistband for a bit more give. I not thinking of the kind where the whole jean material has elastic material in it, but just the waistband. I think most of the major brands carry them.

Lastly make sure you have a good gun belt. With most holster styles a good gun belt makes a huge difference on how well it carries.

I have a Crossbreed Supertuck, and while I think its a decent IWB holster, I do not use it as much, because I prefer my Milt Sparks Versa Max 2. When I use the VM2 I don't even feel the firearm at all, and can even fall asleep with it on laying down. Long lead time for the holster to be made though, unless you find a used one, or a place that happens to have one in inventory. They are not cheap to buy, and very well hand made leather holster.
