I'm at the point where I would like a holster or bag recommendation. This is for my SA XDm9 (9mm)
1. My budget is at the most $50
2. OWB prefered. No need for IWB.
3. Shoulder holster options welcomed.
4. Would like it to hold an extra loaded mag. USE
*The main use really would just be to house the gun. I don't much want to keept the gun in the big XDm case that is came in. It's nice to take to the range, but the range I go to (State Game Lands) which is FREE!!!! it's a little bulky for the narrow table they have there.
**My second use would be easy access when I have it under my bed if I ever need it and also to Conceal Carry it in my car if I ever wanted to. Which my prefered option would be between the drivers seat and center console.
***My third use would be to Conceal Carry it on my person. Again this is the third use, so not my main use and not terribly important. Right now I don't think I have a real reason to Conceal Carry it on my person. I cannot take it on the premises at work so Mon-Fri it's not even worth it. Plus right after work I go right home and don't usually go anywhere for the rest of the day till I have to go to work again the next day.
But if you want to give ideas. I am 5'10" and about 230lbs. Loosing weight too, so keep that in mind when making suggestions...
The one that came with my XDm9 is ok, but I'm not a huge fan of it. The gun seems to catch on it. I have loosened and tightened and loosened again with the allen screw but cannot get it to where it feel comfortable to place and take out and replace again.
My father conceal carries in his vehicles and he uses a small green zippered bag for his STAR 380 pistol. And he uses a leather holster that closes with a strap to a little nubbin for his Makarov 9mm pistol.
I do like the idea of a zippered bag too. It's just easy to use. Maybe not in a hurry type situation, but for general usage I think it is. Plus they are cheap. So maybe no bag recommendations. Unless you know of some really good bags that aren't too expensive.
Something like this for a bag...
Or this for a holster type...
However for this one it gives you options for which gun to buy it for and of course SA isn't on there. Cabela's -- Soft Armor Compakô Spring Clip Ambidextrous Holster
From those choices would you pick like the Glock17 choice for the best fitment for my SA XDm9?
Or this for Shoulder holster type...
