I have an XD-9 and an XD-9SC and I am thinking of making a hole in the lower rear grip for a lanyard to attach to it . I ride an ATV through the woods and it gets really rough sometime and I like the extra insurance of a lanyard to keep my pistol with me in case it comes out of the holster . My holster is awesome , its a Don Hume 721 but with me brushing up against trees and limbs at 20 MPH it gets rough and any extra insurance is better than none . Have any of you guys drilled a hole for a lanyard in your XD's ? My Glocks have one except for my G-26 , which I am getting ready to drill on it tonight .
