    It's only really good for range use, or for screwing to the side of your bed/under your steeringwheel to make a holster mount.

    For OWB I'd suggest any top-quality holster such as the Blackhawk Serpa CQC (www.blackhawk.com), and if you're considering IWB CC I'd suggest the Crossbreed Supertuck (www.crossbreedholsters.com).

    If you have any other suggestions, I have the XD .45 Service, so ask away! Welcome to the forum btw!

    Thanks for the reply. I have a IWB holster I got from Sidearmor, but was looking for anOWB holster. The stock holster just felt.... off. I hate to just throw it out, and never realy thought to put it in my truck.

    If you head over to xdtalk.com, there are several people who can give you some advice on mounting the holster. They've done some good work mounting theirs, and they're always more than happy to point out some of the better (and worse) ideas for how/where to mount one.

    fobus

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I OC my tactical XD with a blackhawk serpa level two. I'm not sure if I got a bad one or if thats just the way the holster is, butmy gun rattles around when I walk. Also if you twist the gun just a little and pull up it pops right out (without pushing the release button). I'm currently in the market for a leather holster with a snap retention strap.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the serpa holsters... Anyone else have these problems?

    This is for my CQC but I'm assuming it's the same for Level II. There's a small screw in the front by the muzzle which controls the passive retention as well as the push-button tension release. Screw that in quarter or half turns until it fixes your problem. Go slowly as you don't want to strip the screw. A little makes a BIG difference.

    Specifically, right here...



    I was actually looking at these today. The 1911 that was put into it was actually very tight, to the point it needed to be loosened a bit for a smooth draw.

    Get out your Screwdriver and turn! :celebrate
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Well, are you sure you have the right none for your gun?

    The right none for your gun? I think I meant "one"....

    I was... in a celebratory mood last night. Well, not really, but I was trying to be in one.
