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.
