I have often carried my XDm 3.8 .40. I sometimes carry my Sig P226. Sometimes it's the 9sc that tags along. Most often it's the Sig p229 .40. I use the same CBST for all.

It all depends on you and a good belt and holster.

My first XD was the XD40SC, which I carried every day. After a couple years I got a 4", so I carry that sometimes. It goes in a desantis sof-tuck.

^^ Ditto

I have the XDm 9mm with the 4.5" barrel in my CBST. I may just be lucky, but where it fits on me at around 4-5 o clock, its right between the seatbelt and the the seat, so even in the car its not a problem. It prints a little between my cell phone and wallet which seems to disguise it.

I CCW an XD 40 Tactical all the time. Like....ALL the time. (When I'm not at work.) I have very little issues with it. I don't really care if I print (it isn't illegal here) so that helps.









Also, that's what she said.

I have no problem carrying my XDm.40 4.5" in an OWB holster. Anything from shorts and a t-shirt to a suit and tie. No problems whatsoever. I even carried my XD.45 5" with no problems. The absolute "need" for a compact and an IWB holster is a myth.

I bought the same model - 4" XD9 - a few weeks ago. I just got a THEIS iwb holster and it's perfectly comfortable, even with my cheap belt. I also bought a Don Hume JIT belt holster for wear with a jacket. Don't much care for the free SA holster.

That being said, I wonder how much easier/more comfortable the XDsc would be to CCW?

Hope this helps! XD9 Service in a Crossbreed Supertuck with her EDC companion DPX HEST.

Tucked



I'm 5'10" 200lbs.

It works a little better with my 5.11 gun belt.

When mine goes on in the morning, it doesn't come off until bed. I think there was 1 or 2 times I've removed my pistol while on a long road trip, but I have taken many other trips where it stays on my side. Heck, I even fall asleep, both in the car and the couch, with it on. It is comfortable!
