ok so i got the idea to make my own clip draw cause im too lazy to order/dont have the money to get a real holster or real clipdraw. and since i have a tennis racket grip and polished my barrel for under $10, this shouldnt come as a surprise to yall. all i did was cut off the end of a ball point pen (about 2 and a half inches) roughed up the underside, and superglued it to teh side of my xd. how long will it last? so far, 1 hour. lol. will it hold up to teh heat cause by firing? probly not. did i waste a perfectly good pen and 30 minutes of brainstorming? yes. but i live in america dammit!

Thanks for the picture of your gut. I now feel hysterical blindness setting in! Hoping for it in fact.

Oh the horror!!!

LOL

Peace,

and what the heck is Under Armour? a macho version of depends or bullet proof undies? :shock:

Also I would have kept the pen intact so that you could use it to fill out a withdrawl slip at the bank. :shock:

(Have a good weekend and thanks for the few giggles :lol: )

I never thought I would see a ghetto version of an XD, but I guess you should never say never, right? I also like how you've mentioned that you're worried that you ruined a perfectly good pen. What about the finish on your XD??

If you're wearing Under Armor underwear (which, for those who don't know is a moisture-wicking material GREAT for working in the heat - it's WONDERFUL when I'm wearing my patrol belt in the summer heat) which is $15 per pair, you're obviously not THAT cheap.

If you're an inventive guy, great, best of luck to you, and it IS your XD to do to whatever you want. However, if you just want a good holster, invest the money and get yourself decent one. I mean, hey, what if your pen clip fails on you just when you need to draw most?

Either way, man, I've been through enough hell in combat zones without having to watch your gut and a poor, innocent XD being embarrassed like that.

I think I would have left the clicky thing operational, just to drive people crazy. When I'm doing the bills, I click away, and it clears the rest of the family out of the room.

:lol: Well it is Friday and I needed a good laugh. Not sure which was funnier the pic or reading what people have written. I would just get a holster, I don't think you want to pay for refinishing. Thanks for helping me have a good laugh, and I think I know you much better; seen your gut and now know what type of skippy's you wear. :lol:

That's pretty hardcore, putting superglue on your slide. I mean, that's like supergluing something to your car. :shock: I took your ideas a step further and superglued my toothbrush to the slide. I always get nervous when brushing my teeth b/c my firing hand is occupied; what if someone were to break in right then? Would I be willing to trade my life for good oral hygiene? Not this cowboy. Now I'm prepared. I call it my SHTF toothbrush. I've also created a lipstick picatinny attachment for the dustcover rail, for female shooters. Be beautiful AND be prepared.

PS I wear underarmor for road marches. Works really well, chafes a lot less than going commando.

just out of curiosity, watcha got wrapped around the grip? is that some kind of wicked cool tactical-black grip tape, or is it some rubber bands? when i get sweaty palms from talk to a chick, its really hard to draw and fire (i usually try to impress them with my bravado), so i need some solutions for my grip...let me know...

LOL thanks for all the comments fellas. yes teh underwear is expensive $12 a pair. but i wear it as a part of my uniform. underwear is #1 priority. the superglue does NOTHING to teh finish of teh xd. already tested it. THIS DEVICE IS NOT PERMANENT! i dont expect this to last. yes i will get teh real clipdraw as soon as i get the money. i would have already gotten it but i incurred medical expenses this month. so yeah, thsi was all for fun people. but i will use it untill it breaks. and ill let yall know when taht is. (expect a post later on tonite).

so you didn't go with the blue, no sweat tennis overwrap? How draws before you re-tape? Why don't you put a vibration dampner on it too?

That's hilarious stuff! I would never superglue to my gun. To each his own.
