So I got the free XD-gear holster with my XD-40 Service and although the holster is very comfortable it is not very good for open carry as it is easily covered up by a jacket or even an untucked shirt. Since I don't have a CCP yet I need to be sure that the weapon is out in the open when I am hunting. I tried a thigh holster and found them too low as the weapon sort of flops around on my leg when I am walking. So I need something between a thigh holster and the high paddle holster. I would love to hear some suggestion.
