TT has some in stock. So does Mitch Rosen (the Express line), as does HBE Leatherworks. Generally the high-end places do not have extensive stock, especially for relatively obscure or new gun models.

3. Try eBay -- there's a surprising number of holsters in stock at various sites.
4. Scour the larger gun boards Want Ad sections.
5. Get something from Galco, with the notion that you'll eventually upgrade and sell the Galco later on. Galco does have "good" quality, though they are mass produced.
If you're willing to wait 2 or 3 weeks, Mitch Rosen Express and Kramer can usually turn around an order in that amount of time.

Only problem with Kramer is they dont make it for the XDm. They are GREAT holsters, but since they dont make it (at least they dont have it listed on their website, I havent called and asked) for the XDm they are a no-go.

Hope it is OK, but I recently bought a Mitch Rosen Premier Express snap loop OWB holster on ebay. The seller has a good stock of some, and they sell for less. The one I bought sells for $90, but she sells it for $75 incl shipping.
If interested go to ebay and type in Mitch Rosen. The seller is jenniferjean2 and has 100% with 1230 transactions. She also has a lot of Galco. FWIW
While the Express line is not equal to his best, or Milt Sparks, it is well made without the detailed boning, and holds the gun tightly as it should. I am pleased with it while I wait for an Alessi CQC/S.
Regarding Milt Sparks, his VM2 is the most popular it seems, but my favorite IWB of all I have seen or tried is his Executives Companion, and I also have and really like his I-BAK and Axiom (both OWB). I think if one can stand the wait, considering his 5 months wait, top notch quality, and fair pricing Sparks may just be the best buy out there.

Last I heard TT was taking about 16 weeks. You might also try thetennesseeholstercompany.com. They make a very interesting holster that can be worn IWB, OWB, CD. It's adjustable for cant and they deliver in a week. Best thing, they make it for the XDM.

Just about any holster will eventually wear the finish off the gun, but from what I found the Blackhawk Serpa holsters I have for my G19 hardly touch the slide at all. They don't conceal that well, but wear on the slide will be slowed.

+1 on this seller...bought from her before...large selection, especially if you are a lefty.
