RE: Serpa CQC holster for XDm 3.8 Compact .45 APC

Or.

Something that will fit tight with a cant.


I'm a newbie to XDTalk (just got my XDm 3.8 Compact .45 ACP two months ago), so take this advice for what it's worth, and if you've already found a solution, my apologies, but I called Blackhawk and asked them directly if their holster for the XD 4.0 Compact .45 ACP would also work for the XDm 3.8 Compact .45 ACP, and was told "yes" (the guns' dimensions are so similar, I didn't see why it wouldn't work).

I need a left-hand holster, so I ordered the 410507BK-L, where a right-hand holster would be the 410507BK-R. It came with both belt and paddle attachments, and can be set at several different angles.

The end of the holster extends about 5/16" past the muzzle, which I don't mind (I consider it "muzzle protection"), and otherwise fits just fine. I wanted a Serpa after seeing it demonstrated by my carry instructor (all the safety caveats to the contrary; you just have to use a proper finger index).

I still want to get a good IWB holster, though, as the CQC is good if my cover garment is long enough, but I'd like something in a "tuckable."

Don't forget a good belt! It will make most good holsters that much better. On that note, Cross Breed SuperTuk with their belt.

It ships with clips to fit a 1.5" belt, so if you have a 1.75" gun belt like I do, be sure to put it in the special instructions that you need 1.75" clips.

Yes, it does mean you have to at a minimum loosen your pants / belt to put it on just like CBST, but it doesn't bother me. I normally leave the holster on all day and just remove the firearm if I need to. Ha! I'm doing that right now and completely forgot I was even wearing the holster. Had to remove the firearm because I needed to enter a place that does not allow firearms.

I love the Theis holster, so comfortable I don't even know I have it. I even started to use my full sized (19 round 9mm mag) instead of the compact mag because it is comfortable enough to do so.

I use this IWB between 3:30-5:30. I like it there and it is probably too big to use for IAWB (12:30-2:30). In fact, Tommy will tell you to not use it for appendix carry.

Theisholsters.com | Home | Custom IWB Holsters

For OWB, I use the Blackhawk CQC Serpa, love that too, but now prefer my IWB Theis for most daily carries.

I tried an N82Tactical, but didn't seem to do well with my XDm in an appendix carry configuration. The XDm has a very square front post that catches on the elastic for the way that I draw (the angle the gun comes out). When I use it behind the hip, the problem seems to go away, but since I love my Theis so much I won't be using the N82 for IWB.

I did try this N82 holster with my wife's PPQ and it seemed to work well in either IAWB or IWB. The front post of the PPQ is slanted, so it does not catch on the elastic, unlike the XDm front sight.

I'm returning the N82 and the guys there were great about it. They have a different version (Pro) that I'm going to get instead. It looks like it might work well for AIWB. It is plastic / suede instead of elastic / suede.
I have one of Tommy's single clip holsters and I like it. Just received it yesterday. It's horse hide since I'm in warm weather and single clip as like you, I like to be able to take it on and off easily. I'm left handed and wear it between 10 and 12 depending on the pants and situation.

Mine is from Triple T Holsters <Index >
This is a family-owned business, locally made (Houston area).
The website is not flashy, but the holsters are great, solid, comfortable, and reasonably priced.

So what did you get?

I bought the N82tactical for my XDM .45 compact. It's great. Took about 3 or 4 days to arrive after ordering from their site. I have searched all the local gun stores and have never been able to find anything specifically designed for my gun. Either they are always out of stock or they are poorly labeled so that finding what I need has been impossible. So I tend to order most of my accessories online. Just google N82tactical for their website.
