    XDm 9mm compact w/3.8" barrel options

    Anyone carry one of these concealed? Looking for holster options. I searched back several pages and didn't see any other similar topics.
    Thinking I would probably OWB carry under jacket, etc but open to other options. Pictures or links are appreciated.

    Thanks

    It is heavy. That being said I still carry it when not at work. I would recommend getting the stiffest, strongest belt you can to carry it. I use a wilderness tactiacl 1.75" FF belt and a comptac mtac holster.

    The biggest concern I had before buying this gun was how well I could conceal it. I am 5'9" and 145 lbs. As long as I stay conscientious about bending at the waste, it does not print with normal t shirts. I can definitely feel it while wearing it, but it is not an impossible gun to carry. Only complaint I have is with this gun in the mtac holster the take-down lever makes a noticeable bump against my skin.

    hope this helps

    Thanks for the info. I'm a bit bigger 6'4 225. So it may conceal somewhat easier. Did you find the belt online?

    This is my EDC in a CrossBreed Super Tuck. I'm 5'7" and a portly 170lbs, but this gun rides great in the holster at my 4:30-5:00.

    Concealment isn't a problem with tucked or untucked shirts. Although I wear it deep in my waistband with a full forward cant. I haven't sprung for a true gun belt yet, but the couple of sturdy dress belts I wear daily seem to be doing the trick for now.

    Took a couple quick photos for ya - sorry they aren't the best. Questions?

    Talon Grips - rubberized ones. Came highly recommended and really like them so far.

    Big difference in getting that good, stable first grip on draw.
