    I have a buddy that bought a cheap nylon holster cut the bottom out and then did some sewing to make it fit hit XD with tac light. If your looking for a real duty holster or a leather one, you may be out of luck. the general thought from XD talk is it seems like there is a serious lack of duty holsters for the XD's

    Maybe someone could make you a custom holster, but that might cost a pretty penny and take some time.

    How about this? Scroll down, and there are several options:

    Gun Holsters - Tactical Light / Laser

    I am looking for something of a higher quality. Either leather or kydex. If all else fails that shoulder holster will be a good option though. Thanks for the help.

    Do you prefer Kydex or leather?

    Do you carry IWB or OWB?

    Yep. I sure do. I typically only make kydex holsters when it comes to mounted light carry, but I can make an exception for the XML since it's thin enough to allow a safe fit in a leather holster. Give me a holler if you don't find anything like you are looking for.
