    Question OWB holster help for xd sub .40

    I am looking for a concealable owb holster for my xd sub .40.
    I wear loose button down shirts over a t. I tred fobus,too bulky,prints.
    I have looked at Don Hume 721OT so far in leather. Any suggestions on
    holsters y'all use? Pictures would be great showing how you carry OWB.
    I carry my G27 IWB and it's comfortable,xd is a little heavier and thicker
    so owb would be more comfortable for me with my favorite pistol.
    Thanks for all help on this holster choice!!!!!!!!!

    I mostly carry my Kahr PM9 or Ruger LCR, but have carried my XD9SC a couple times. At first it feels bulky, but after wearing it a little while, it feels no more heavier than the PM9. I carry all my guns in a Don Hume J.I.T. slide. I have one of those holsters for any of the guns we have that I would carry.

    I buy and wear T's that are larger than I necessarily need, so they cover pretty well. During winter I wear a T-shirt, tucked in, and a large size henley over to cover the gun, plus a jacket if I go out.

    I carry OWB anywhere from 2:30 to 3:30 position.

    I have the "slide-guard" model (black leather/lined) for my XDm.
    http://www.highnoonholsters.com/Prod...ide_guard.html

    It rides high and tight and is an OWB holster. Downside is due to popularity and quality, it takes awhile for them to make and ship them out.... but I have found it to be worth the wait... and it became my everyday holster.

    As well, their FAQ section is a great resource on holsters in general no matter what brand you buy.

    I carry my XD 40 SC everyday, all day long, no problems with it. I purchased a Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro which gives me about 23 different options to use the same holster. IWB/OWB, different cants, etc. I love this holster, in fact, I only have two holsters and I love and use them both. The Pure Kustom that I mentioned already, and one that I purchased from another DC Forum member, dukalmighty. Both Rocky (Pure Kustom) and Steve (dukalmighty) are great to work with.

    High Noon Holsters look great but 10-12 week wait is too long for me.
    Pure custom is a long wait also but another great choice. I may go with Don Hume products but still looking.
    Thanks so much for some great info so far guys! If I decided to carry this xd in a IWB holster I think the crossbreed would be the most comfortable according to most. I have used the Don Hume 715 IWB for my other glocks and 1911's and it was a very solid and well made holster. I carry my G27 in a galco stow&Go, not bad,inexpensive and comfortable but not as stable as leather,it's suede.

    I have an xd9sc and I use a galco matrix 7x. It was pretty cheap, looks decent and hugs the body really well. Not sure if its what you are looking for, but it works for me.

    Desantis speed scabbard can be bought for about 60.00 . Most gun shops stock them for the xd's.
