Time for an OWB holster
Now that I sort of have the IWB sorted out (Jury is still out on this one... I may need something different), I still need an OWB for the XD9 Service. I was thinking about this...
Any input or experiences? Can't beat the prices, thats for sure.

For the XD I am thinking? Well the choices are extensive and it may depend on whether you can wait for a custom job.
I can say tho my K&D Eagle Defender for my 226 ST is A1 ideal for me. Two year's constant use and it should be good for a long time yet.
Sometimes tho (thus boxes of holsters!!) we just have to try stuff out and see if it suits.

I started out with Don Hume holsters and like the slide they put out a lot. Don Hume is a good deal for the bucks. But they will never be a custom holster. Try one out to see if you like OWB and if you do order a custom from one of our leather artise. The Don Hume will hold you over untill you recieve your custom.

Lots to choose from. Do you want slots to thread it on your belt, clips, or snap open/closed loops ? I personally prefer snap open loops, easy on * off. KD Eagle is a good choice. SO is the Mc Daniel II by Andrews leather. Like mine. Might also see what ubgholsters has available.

I have the Hume open top and can say first hand it's a decent holster. Ben H said it right, it's not a custom holster. Don't expect it to have the quality craftsmanship of a custom and you won't be disappointed.

Hume is plain, but good value
I have a couple of the Don Hume open top double nine holsters, and they are good value for the money. Hume uses thinner leather and less stitching than a custom, but the holster costs about half as much as a custom. It all depends on what you want.
I have a Hume of the older style (belt tunnels instead of loops) for a rarely-carried USP 45, and it is perfectly adequate when I have used it.

I carry in a Hume every day, and my holster is about 3 years old now. I have not had any issues with it to date. You can get a good deal on them at Gunnersalley.com, and you don't have to wait 2 years to get one.
I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..

I just purchased a fobus paddle holster today for my 637 and i have been wearing it around the house and i like it alot.
I dont yet have my ccw so at home is my only way to try it out.
i can slide it around a little when i need to sit or whatever but if i had a larger weapon i dont think this would be agood choice.
It does ride a little low.
good for the price though.
