    need help quickly please- Need IWB holster for XD9

    My main carry gun is going back to the manufacturer for a broken extractor. Which means I need a holster quickly for a Springfield XD9 subcompact. I prefer IWB and I'm not sure I like the Don Hume clip on. It doesn't appear to fully cover the trigger area and I question it's stability on a 1.5" galco belt.
    If someone can point me in the direction of a vendor that has something in stock or maybe someone has a used holster they want to part with I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm on a budget so I can't really afford a new custom rig right now. I don't want to spend more than $50. I'd like to spend more and get something nicer but that's not an option at the moment.
    Thanks!

    Were I you, I would pick up an Uncle Mike's IWB holster. They're not great, but they get the job done for less than $20 and can be found most places. I found that their stability was not ideal, but acceptable. That would give you time to get your other firearm back, though.

    Ditto on the Uncle Mike's. I carried an XD9 service in an Uncle Mike's IWB in the small of my back. Biggest problem was reholstering with 1 hand.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll take a look. I don't mind not be able to reholster with one hand. I use a Sparks watch six right now so I'm use to that.

    Thanks to whomever modified the title of the thread- probably makes it a little easier for everyone involved.

    Take a look at High Noon Holsters - they have a couple of IWB that are always in stock, and can get them to you in a few days....

    For IWB I use a FIST #K3 works fine for me.

    Let us know what you get and how it works for you

    What made you choose Kydex over leather? Do they ship quickly?

    Just get a cheapie Nylon for now, then order a decent leather holster.
    Remember one is none and two is one. As you've found out a back up is always needed.
    have a second rig available for just the times when one goes out of service.

    I got the Kydex for a couple of reasons. First it was recommended by the sales man at the gun shop (even though I was looking at more expensive ones when he asked if I needed help). Second the price was right ($34.98). Third it is thin so it doesn't add bulk to the waistline.

    Hope this has been helpful for you.
