This is a discussion on Brought home a new pistol yesterday, couldn't wait to build a holster! within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; This all started shooting with my father in law and falling in love with his XD 45. I wrote a post called XD 45 Envy ...

No open carry in Texas but I tried it under a long shirt open and unbuttoned and it doesn't print too bad. Keeps the gun nice and tight to me thanks everyone for the complements. I'm still developing my leathercraft skills.
Nice firearm, and very nice holster! I make all my own holsters as well....sometimes you just have to. I'll bet there aren't many choices of leather holsters for an XD with a flashlight! BTW have you noticed how much leather sides have increased in price? Keep up the good work.
Too light for heavy work, too heavy for light work!
Even it the holster didn't turn out perfect, like with reloading, creating your own makes it special. It is a nice holster though.

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
I really like the holster, especially with the light attached. It seems less bulky than others I have seen with light attached. I think you could do quite well making holsters.
