Re: holster for springfield xd series 2

I just bought an outbags for my xds, concealed carry holster. If you get one and plan on using it to carry in the small of your back inside the waist band get s left hand draw. Sounds nuts but if you're right handed that's what you need. I just sent it back and exchanged it for a left draw model

Re: holster for springfield xd series 2

I don't own an XDS, but a G19. However, since they make it for both, I can highly recommend:

Safariland 6378 ALS Paddle and Belt Loop Holster

I was looking for a secure holster that could double for concealed and open carry and this thing is perfect. Holds the gun securely and with much less wobble than holsters I have from Alessi and Desantis. This model # comes with both paddle and belt clip included and I got mine from Midway for under $45. The paddle's grip on your belt/pants is tremendous with the only complaint being it's hard to get the holster off at the end of the day! Also, it has the nice suede lining that so many Safari holsters have. Easy on your gun finish too.

It got an A rating from gun-test in their recent double issue article on security holsters.

Re: holster for springfield xd series 2

I have a Crossbreed MiniTuck for my XDs and it's been working extremely well for me. I have a Minotaur for my Glock 23 (same idea as the Crossbreed) and I'm likewise happy with that.

For the 23, which I will sometimes carry OWB, I use a Blackhawk retention holster (paddle holster).

Decent OWB's aren't awful in cost. IWB's tend to get pricey. I haunt forum classified sections and tend to find what I need for a lot less, if I have the ability to be patient.

Go on Facebook and look up Holsters By Brent. He is from New Kensington and made three holsters for me... awesome stuff.
