Praise the Lord, I just received my permit today after waiting about three weeks. Now if I can only decide on which holster to order ( I already own a smart carry, but my xd is a little big to store and conceal well ). It will be my next present to myself. I want to thank all you gentlemen who present cogent reasons for the right to protect ourselves, some of my dearest friends think I'm a paranoid fool. To bad for them.
Here is an idea for your XD:
Whatever doesn't kill you postpones the inevitable.
Remember, you can't have too many holsters.
Congrats on the permit. great lookin holster lowlyer.

Your friends will probably be the first ones to run and hide behind you when the shooting starts.
Some of us are ants and others are grasshoppers.
Congrads on the permit..Just a question.If you dont have a holster, and you're on your way to Wally World, are you carrying without a holster?
Probably using the belt slide XD-Gear holster that came with the gun.
Chris glad you are with us.
It took a violent scene of a high school couple getting car-jacked, raped repeatedly, tied up, beaten, shot, burned, and stuffed into a garbage can for my niece and her husband in Knoxville, TN to tell me...' we have seen enough, we want to buy some guns and get our carry permits'. The community is still trying to recover from the most insane crime in at least 10 years. I will gather and post links that recall the details if anybody wants. Believe me, it was most gruesome. Fortunatley, the three thugs have been caught and are going to do hard time for this. Still, the families mourn.
Violence is everywhere in America it seems, these days. Just like the folks in the mall in Salt Lake City, you never know when 'the moment of truth' will arrive!
Aside: Everyone has to make decisions about self defense and, your friends have made theirs.

Condition "yellow" is a heightened state of awareness & response.
