    What type of items are you looking for? The XD-M Compact is a fairly new gun, so there won't be nearly as many accessories for it as there are for the standard XD lineup.

    Unless I'm mistaken, your gun should fit just fine in any holster that is designed for the XD-M 3.8. Galco (www.usgalco.com) makes several good holsters for the model, but so do quite a few other makers.

    I think the key will be to look for holsters & mag carriers that are designed for the Xd-M 3.8, since it has been around a little longer than the Compact, and, again unless I'm mistaken, the difference is the length of the grip.

    Good luck.

    It depends on the type of holster you're after. If its an open ended holster like a serpa or some of the kydex ones then any XD holster will work. If the holster is form fitted down to the very end of the barrel like a bunch of the leather holsters then you need a holster that fits a 3.8 barrel. The compact only really refers to the grip (and a smaller barrel, but you can get the smaller barrel on non-compact guns as well) and I don't of any holsters that also go over the grip, so when it comes to XD and XDm guns the only thing that changes for holsters is the barrel lengths; and even then the barrel length doesn't matter for a bunch of holsters.

    I own an XD-9 sub compact and an XDm-40 with a 3.8 barrel and so far every holster I've looked at has been interchangeable.

    Here are some options:

    For storing at bedside or in the headboard, an Uncle Mike's cheapo soft IWB holster (I use a #7) fits snugly, wrapping around the trigger guard in back. It's not so great for carrying but sometimes you just want something to cover the gun and trigger when you're not wearing it.

    A basic belly-band, 4" wide fits the XD-M line very well and is one of my in-house carries when I'm just wearing sweats.

    A 5.11 holster shirt is very good if you have a 42"+ chest - it holds the HG very securely vertically in just the right place under the armpit. Very comfortable.

    A Fobus basic paddle holster, OWB fits well, but it doesn't hold the HG very close to the body. Model number is SP11B. Another cheap holster which is just OK.

    The best kind is a Raven (Raven Concealment Systems), but there's a multi-month waiting list. It's IWB, kydex around $80. Check the Crossbreed Supertuck and the Minotaur MTAC. All are IWB.
