    How do you carry your XD9 sc?

    I started with a cheap holster (Don Hume iwb) so i can have a better idea of what i need in a holster.
    now I'm looking for a holster with two belt clips (better weight distribution) and a forward cant (or adjustable cant) as it conceals better for a small frame like me.
    I did some research and found some company's that have good holsters, but unfortunately i cant find any store (Miami area) that sell good XD holsters, so i will have to order from the net my chosen holster, without physically comparing so i was wondering if i can get some hunch from people with some more xd holster experience then me.

    You're going to get lots of suggestions on holsters. I always recommend Fist holsters. I have lots of em and am happy with em all. I have a XD40SC and it carries really well in both IWB and OWB holsters from Fist. Any leather holster (custom) is going to take some time. Mine have taken from 5-7 weeks. Others have said it took them 3 weeks ( Fist). So you better get to ordering NOW>

    Love my crossbreed supertuck. Thinner than most all-leathers, very secure. QUICK turnarounds, great price.

    Don't forget Comp-Tac. I carry an XD45 in one sometimes and it's pretty comfortable for a full sized gun. They have quick turn around and aren't real expensive. It may hold you over until you can get a custom holster.

    I carry my XD9sc in 3 different holsters
    Galco Miami Classic (shoulder rig)
    Galco Silhouette High Ride (OWB)

    and a generic IWB that I modified into a tuckable that works GREAT.

    Currently XD40SC in a cheapo uncle mikes holster. Works extremely well for now, plan on getting a FIST forward cant holster w/the key ring holder thingy

    CTAC

    I carry my XD40SC in a C-T.A.C holster from Comp-Tac. If I had to choose again I might consider the MTAC from them because it has leather against the body and I might be able to skip the undershirt in the summer. Not sure though because I do like the C-T.A.C holster.

    The C-T.A.C is a IWB holster with an adjustable cant. It is also tuckable but is stable enough that can be used either way. I find it to be very comfortable and use it for every day carry. I use the standard clips but nobody has ever asked about them. I tend to put my cellphone holster right up against the front clip so people won't be able to see that clip, but can see the back clip. I have it centered on my hip at 3 O'clock so the back clip is right behind my hip. They do have J-Clips, C-Clips and velcro clips that will keep people from seeing the clips. I also have the C-Clips, but find those are actually more noticable if your belt isn't thick enough. The clips themselves stick out and can get caught on stuff. I would like to try the velcro clips (anyone want to trade 2 C-Clips for 2 V?) to see how they work but I would probably buy a gun belt with the velcro sewed in if I did that.

    Carry my XD in a FIST #43 which can be worn either IWB or OWB. Very versatile holster.

    +1 on FIST. I like the #8. It is an open bottomed (I can carry any of my XD's in it) belt slide that is very well made at a very affordable price.

    XD40sc in an MTAC. Great holster. Used to carry in a Crossbreed Supertuck, also a great choice. I prefer the minimal sweatshield of the MTAC to the fuller one of the Crossbreed. With my gun, I don't see a comfort difference, and it is easier to get a grip with the Mtac when drawing. I may prefer the Crossbreed in the summer, haven't had the MTAC that long.
