    Need suggestions for holster/belt setup for a SA XD9 Sub-Compact please

    Hi all,

    First post! Been reading here for awhile and finally decided to post. I need help with suggestion on a good IWB holster that is comfortable yet hugs good too the body for CC. I've tried a few holsters and they all stink. I'm really want this SA XD9 Sub-Compact to work since I bought it for CC but so far its been heavy, BIG (for a sub-compact) and uncomfortable digging into my side sitting down when driving and such. Thinking of a pocket gun .380 if I can figure this out soon. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Concealment Solutions IWB with a decent belt... better than others for comfort and function (extra kydex on slide side = safer reholster)

    I just got a cheap belt. But im working on that. But for a holster I juct purchased a galco king tuk for my xd9 sc. And I think its a great holster. And I got mine on sale at a local gun shop. Works great for the xdsc.

    Cy, I have an XD9sc as my EDC. I use a Kholster IWB (they are a site sponsor) and it's great for the price. Certainly it is not a Crossbreed, but the price was awesome and it carries comfortably and reliably. For a belt, I have both a Galco leather gun belt and, more recently, a Wilderness Instructor. Both are great, and as I wear my shirts untucked most of the time I like the Wilderness and leave the leather belt for tuck times.

    I've heard a lot of good things about remora. Going to give one a try with my xd service model. Average Joe gives a good review that answers a lot of concerns folks have with a clipless holster.

    I carry an XD9sc in a holster made at www.bearriveholsters.com. It is well made for what it costs and it took him only a couple weeks to get it to me.I didn't need anything fancy or expensive, just something solid and comfortable. I did find that on my body it is most comfortable around 4:30/5:00. Can I tell its there? Yeah. Does it dig in or is it uncomfortable? No. Play with positioning on your body and you also may need to adjust the cant based on where it is. Most holster makers can adjust how much cant the holster will have while carrying. You may need more than normal or less.

    I am 6'3, 275# so its not hard for me to make something disappear. But Ive seen some pretty small frames both men and woman make guns the size of the SC disappear under a tank top. I haven't yet tried a hybrid holster, but that would seem to be a good starting point as you can adjust height and cant by moving the clips.

    Currently carrying a Glock G26 in a Remora with a cheap belt.
    I really do like it.

    Two things: Buy a good belt. For jeans or casual, the Wilderness 5 stitch is tough to beat for the price.
    GMS tactical has them for a good price-no shipping charges.
    The Wilderness Original Instructor Belt 1-1/2 inch FREE SHIPPING

    For something more dressy, there are many good makers. One I have spoken to recently:
    Custom Gun Belts, Custom Leather Belts from A & G Custom Gun Leather



    I will be buying a belt from him this month.

    Second holsters:
    I am awaiting delivery of one from White Hat. Will post my experience once it arrives.
    Leather choices are far more complex than hybrid. One maker that really looks good to me is Brommeland.

    CY, I second the vote for a gun belt. I made my son-in-law a holster (XD45) for his birthday last summer. I gave him a gun belt for Christmas. He says that it makes a world of difference for him, carry wise.

    I carry the SA XD40 SC, in a Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro. You get a holster that can be worn IWB, OWB, many different cants, a total of 23 different positions. Love this holster.

    I had the same issue, and nothing I tried worked well for me.... at least not what I wanted. Dumped way too much money in holsters trying to find one.

    Found one holster that worked perfect, due to the way it carries the gun (slight cant forward), etc. I liked it so much, I also use the same type holster with a beretta PX4.

    Don Hume P.C.C.H. No XD-C. It is not on their typical "list" of holsters.... they recommended it when I called them. Good leather, well made.

    During the winter months here in W.I. I have a Galco speed paddle. I keep it at the 4:00 position and works fine. Half the time I forget it's even on.
