BLACKHAWK!® Sportster SERPA Handgun Holsters
Was ordering without seeing product except on line so was hoping it would be what I wanted. After receiving and using holster I am quite pleased and I am very glad I made the purchase. The holster is totally functional for most types of carry and I love the trigger lock secure factor in the holster. Easy to use and easy to carry. I will look to Black Hawk the next time I am in need of holster for a handgun.

I had to cross reference with a couple other sites but to save everyone a little time I am confirming that the Springfield XD model does indeed fit the XDM. This fits my XDM 3.8 like a glove and is very comfortable. The release catch is adjustable, it will be tuned for your model but if for some reason it is off you can adjust it easily.
This is a concealed-carry holster and as such will not work with weapon-mounted lights or lasers unless they are behind the trigger housing. Anything mounted to the front rail will not fit in this holster.
This holster also comes with two screws so that you can make it where you must run your belt through it instead of slipping it over your belt/trousers.
Quick but secure release won't leave you fumbling under duress.
I have combat experience in the military and as a civilian I stick with BlackHawk when available. Thoughtfully engineered, Marine approved!

I had been looking at poly holster for my Glock 32 for a few weeks. I have connections for police issued holsters, but most were out of the price range I wanted to be in. While in the local BPS I strolled over to the holster section to see and fell this one. It was exactly what I was looking for and at the price point I wanted to be in. Once I purchased it and got it home to try and fit my Glock in it, the fit was perfect. I really like the release on this holster, and were it sits on your belt is a very natural position for a draw.
The specs state that it was developed for conceal-carry use; maybe with the right cloths on but not an everyday C-C holster in my opinion. On the other hand I did find an awesome location to mount (concealed) in my truck with just the addition of 2 small screws (yes I have my C-C-L). Of course I had to purchase another one to actually use the way it was intended.

I had another holster that I had made for my Ruger SR9c and I had to wait a little over two weeks to get it. I really wasn't happy with it after getting it. I had to hold the holster with my left hand in order to get the gun out of the holster. A friend of mine bought this one and liked it, so I tried it out. I was extremely impressed. After I got back from our hunting trip I sent my holster back and ordered the Blackhawk Serpa. My gun pulls out of the holster very easily and locks back in place, which I really like. Having the gun lock in place is a very nice feature. Just push the release and the gun comes out easily and your finger is in the safe position. I also like being able to adjust the holster to the size of my belt and tilt the holster at the angle that I prefer.
I haven't tried the paddle, don't know if I will use it. I'm really happy with the holster the way I have it set up now.
