1st holster input (with pics)
First, let me mention I am getting a belt. Because of the reputation on here and cost, I am planning on going with the beltman.
I am a college student who turned 21 this week and am talking to a ccw instructor and taking a class very soon. I am 6'1 and 182 for the record.
Even due to the handle printing issues I have heard, I went ahead and got a XD40. Its a nice gun, I like it, and better yet I see no reason why it won't work for me with a nice IWB holster :smile:
I have been narrowing it down for a week on which IWB holster to get. Every time I narrow it down to 1 or 2 another one pops into the running. At the moment I am considering Comp-tac, Desantis and High Noon (of course I am open to more :image035: ) They each seem to have their benefits and positive recommendations.
I dress normally in a tshirt and jeans or cargo pants and am looking for a holster which will help conceal in everyday situations. I am mainly looking for a summer/spring holster which I can wear with a baggy tshirt if possible. I can't seem to get IWB out of my mind. I may look into a pocket gun down the road.
All pics were taken in a mirror so they're reversed.
Here is the XD40 in a Hume holster. The thumb break was cut by the previous owner. It seems to fit well but I wouldn't use it without an additional layer of clothing.
