I will be getting a 92x later this week ($200 off at Bass Pro with free shipping). I am looking for a holster recommendation. As of now, I am between Crossbreed and Alien Gear. I have a Crossbreed for my XDSC and have been happy with it, but I have heard good things about Alien Gear, as well. Does anyone have experience with either, or something else they would recommend?
TIA

Alien Gear or Black Arch are two good brands. However carrying a full-size pistol IWB is never comfortable for me. I OWB pistols that size.

I used aBianchi UM84 Universal Military Holster for a Model 92 Compact in the military. It is a fine OWB holster.

Thank you for the recommendation. I checked Alien Gear and they didn’t have one for the 92x.
I will likely carry it more in the colder seasons when it will be easier to conceal with heavier clothing. I could see an OWB in my future at some point also.

Not a fan of cross bread. Tried a few and they are noisy to me.

I got my JM Custom yesterday. This is my first from there and I am impressed so far. Very good fit and finish and excellent retention. It carries the 92 easily, but I still see myself carrying it more with heavier clothing for better concealment. I would recommend to anyone looking.
I also discovered that a tee shirt between the pistol and the skin will be necessary, as the grip texture on the 92x will quickly irritate the skin.
I see an OWB in the future. Like most, my holster collection is rather extensive. One for every season :)
