Picked up a DeSantis Speed Scabbard today for my XDm...now I have two IWB and an OWB holster. My XDm9 has now replaced my 1911 for EDC. I love my 1911, but I am much more accurate with my XDm.

Choosing a self-defense tool is best done with the mind and not the heart. You love the 1911, but if the 9mm is better for you, you have two choices. Become more proficient with the 1911, or carry the 9mm.
Good luck with your transition.
Oh, and the DeSantis is a much under rated holster. I love their Speed Scabbard. I have spent hundreds of dollars on custom leather that is no better, except possibly in appearance. It doesn't have to be pretty. It just has to work.
If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
Train hard, live easy.
