    Welcome...

    from Central Florida!

    Anything can be concealed with the correct belt, holster, and clothing...are you willing to experiment?

    as was previously said .. you can conceal anything ... just need to experiment with clothing ... I usually wear a t-shirt and a button down unbuttoned and you can't tell I have my XDm 9mm on at all

    I carry a 9m XD in an IWB and it works great. If you experiment a little I'm sure you'll find a way to conceal comfortably without printing.

    I picked up an XDm .40 about a month ago.

    I have a new Tucker Heritage IWB holster on oder for it.

    I currently use a Don Hume OWB Open Top holster for it and its very comfortable. Covers really well with a T-shirt and open button down shirt as a cover, or even a light windbreaker works fine too. Getting the proper cant and location is critical but its not much wider than my super thin Walther PPS .40. I think the Walther is just barely over 1" wide and the XDm is around 1.125" so not really that much for 16 shots vs 7 shot capacity.

    I have only put about 75 rounds through it at this point but shoots really good and easy to handle. I wanted to put more through but just haven't had time. I didn't have problems with it all now thats not enough to say I am proficient with it or that I trust it 100% yet but I don't have any reservations about carrying it.

    I have small hands and it has a much shorter reach than Glocks and M&P's or Sigs I picked up, so it suits me better. I didnt realize how much difference this made till watching a video of Todd Jarret on how to grip a pistol properly.

    My hearty reccomendation is buy the XDm .40 cal and if you have a desire or need to shoot 9mm you can convert it.

    I have an XD 45, and I don't have any problems. I have a Max-con V by Gary Brommeland that I'm very happy with, and can highly recommend.
