I hope I'm not jumping the gun, so to speak, but I'm looking for a good holster that I can use for my new XD-9 Tactical. I'd like to take an "Into to IPSC" shooting class sometime soon, and I will naturally need a holster. I've done a search here and see that holsters, like pistols, are a highly personal, subjective choice.

My problem is that I have no holster experience to fall back on, so suggesting that I go with "whatever feels best" isn't really going to work. It seems like holsters are not terribly expensive, so I guess I could change my mind later on, but in the meantime I'm hoping folks can point me in the direction of a "can't lose" holster that I can use for some entry-level competition shooting. Opinions on materials choices, other options, or other relevant accessories such as belts would be welcome, too. :D

Thanks ahead of time for any feedback you'd like to share!

Thanks for the help.

The consensus seems to be that the Blade-Tech and the Safariland are good bets.

Has anyone used both of them who can give me a little more information about how they compare and contrast?

Thanks again!
