    XD45 4 Inch OWB Holster

    I just bought me a brand new XD45, with the 4 inch barrell. I think they call it the service model. Nice Gun by the way I need a nice leather OWB holster to wear around my property that goes on and off easily....preferably snaps. I really dont want to wait 6 months either. This is not my CC gun. Any Recommendations?

    Well, Nate at UBG is top notch to work with, and does great work. He is at about a 2 month wait, how quick do you need a holster? Look at his regulator model

    Nice, but I want something I can get right now. Like I said it is just something to wear around the property. Galco, Don Hume ect.

    Not knocking leather, but I wear all my guns around the house (including an XD-45 Service) in a Fobus paddle holster. The best OWB holster IMHO. I keep the leather for the skin-contact type carrying.

    This is a pic of my XD45 Service in a #43 FIST holster which can be worn either IWB or OWB with equal facility. I recommend it highly, particularly for the XD45

    Doesn't that clip on the outside kind of get in the way?

    It's what makes it convertible. You need it for IWB. For OWB it shouldn't be a big issue... those all metal c-clips are very sturdy only about 3/8" or less in overall thickness.

    I dont like it....looks liks shirts and coats would hang up on the clip. Plus it looks too wide to be worn IWB.

    But thats just my opinion, I have never seen one in person.

    I could see it being an issue for knits and similar sweaters, etc. It really is a 'C' clip though... the lip folds upward 90 degrees from horizontal. For me it's not an issue - although I admit I do not use my convertible anymore.

    A Bulman QRH is a great OWB holster, it's just like the Alessi CQC/S.

    Does anybody know if the XD40 and 45 take the same holster? I am finding that many holsters fit the 40 and dont mention the 45.
