    WA...Not so Newbie

    Hello all. Well. I have been using the hell outta the search button, and will continue to do so. It has already helped. I believe i am about to order a crossbreed holster and belt.

    i got my CCW soon as i turned 21, and bought a Springfield XD40 service model. Due to travel for work, i could not carry as much as preferred due to being in different states all the time.

    No i am back in the home state more, and want to carry more. Right now i am searching for a good way to hide my XD.

    I notice alot of people post there reasons for carry. i supposed i have a few.
    1.) Its a right, might as well excersice it.
    2.) Home, personal, auto safety.
    3.) My most recent reason for carrying has been a man sexually assulted my significant other. He is now out, and around town. I feel the reason for protection is even higher now. both at home, and in public.

    Any suggestions on a good setup for the XD40 are appreciated, and now ill continue searching...

    Welcome

    from Central Florida!

    ret

    For a holster...see 'Related Links' above...search out holsters...there are may to choose from.

    My personal preference for good $$, quick service, and quality work is Fist.
    Also, there are several fine holster makers on this forum...look below the title of the home page.

    Stay armed...use a good belt and holster...stay safe!

    Welcome to the forum from Virginia. Myself I like Galco IWB holsters, but that is just my preference. Only other suggestion I can make is don't scrimp on your holster and belt, they go a long way towards comfort and good concealment.
