    The Blackhawk Serpa for one and there are many others.
    Perhaps if you would use a real computer you wouldn't have to apologize for not being able to do so many things on the internet!

    I use a blackhawk serpa everyday. Even at home.

    If I had any batteries in my camera, I could take a picture of my Serpa for you.

    I was even able to get it in southpaw. :celebrate
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Someone said photos?

    XD40SC in a Blackhawk Serpa. The paddle is basically impossible to yank off my belt, and even when I try to remove it "correctly" it takes a minute to get it off.

    My guess would be triji's manufacturer markings.

    When an XD is useable, the firing pin is visible on the back of the weapon. Also the loaded chamber indicator pops up, but thats not visible here.

    The white marks are dots surrounding the factory-mounted Trijicon night sights.

    At the time of the photograph I had just opened the holster and was testing its functionality, hence why my XD was unloaded and uncocked.

    edit: Sorry, I just realize you meant the white on the side of the rear sight. It's a manufacturer marking - says "Trijicon", and beneath that is "H3" (tritium symbol) and "08" (presumably the year of manufacture).

    I use the Blackhawk Serpa for my XD45c and when I have to conceal I go with a Crossbreed Supertuck. The Serpa is just an excellent choice.

    Roger that. She stays locked and loaded 10+1 24/7/365, except for such rare occasions as you saw there.

    I use a serpa as well. Blackhawk makes a rig for using your serpa as a shoulder holster.

    'Cause on the XD40 --- see that little circle on the back of the gun? A pin would be sticking out of it if he was ready to rumble.
