In connection with my birthday, and all the trouble I've been through in obtaining my XD-40 Service, I have been offered, free of charge, my choice of an XDGear holster, or 12 round magazine. I'm leaning towards the magazine, Any opinions?

I have the XD holster, I'd probably go with the mag. I can't really see myself using the holster very much if at all. It's not practical for CCW. It's not particularly comfortable either, at least not for me.

I use the holster for IPSC shooting and it is great for that purpose because it is adjustable and keeps my XD-9 offset from my body. However, I don't believe it is IDPA legal and certainly not useful for CCW. So, if you're not shooting IPSC, I'd go with the mag.

I agree with palidin the XD-Gear holster great for IPSC. I shot my first match with it this past weekend and it work well for my needs. IMHO it is the most comfortable holster I have worn. But comfort is a very personal thing. I think I would get the extra magazine so you can carefully shop and try on several holsters untill you find the one you like and works for the type of carry you need.
