I'm trying to switch over to my XD Subcompact 40 for carry. I've been carrying my 642 or TCP. I tried it out yesterday with my Minotaur holster. To me it seems really heavy on my belt and I can't imagine wearing all day. I really like the gun and don't want to trade for one of the light thin 9mm right now because it is a quality gun, I would lose too much on a trade, and haven't found a good mini 9 that I like. My question is..how much difference will a heavy duty gun belt or just heavy duty belt will make. I also don't want to waste the money on one if it doesn't make a night and day difference on the feel of carrying a heavier gun. I've been carrying my 642 or TCP but after going to Dallas last weekend, I decided that there are times that I need the XD.
