I've had my Springfield XD subcompact .40 for several years now and I carry it often, but not as often as I'd like, especially in the warmer weather days. I've got an ankle rig that I can carry and tried a few iwb and other holsters for it. The problem I have ran into is that (I guess with my build......6'-1", 186 lbs.....pretty lean), the holster and gun create a buldge of sorts, no matter what position or cant I have the holster adjusted to, therefore making it absolutely impossible for me to carry this with my shirt tucked in if needed be, and still yet fairly difficult with a t-shirt on that actually fits.....not a bigger baggy t-shirt.
Has anyone experienced this problem as well?? I'm not really looking to buy a larger size pair of jeans or wear bigger and baggy t-shirts but would like to figure out the best solution...........other than buying a smaller gun (which will come in time....and with money). My t-shirts are not tight....they just fit. My jeans....the same.....fit, not tight.
Anyone know what I can do to get rid of that buldge? I've tried and played with the positions on me and the holster to try to get rid of it and can't figure it out. If I had to wear dress slacks and a shirt tucked in or something like that I couldn't carry......the buldge makes me look like I've got a hip problem!!
