    Talking new holster works great

    I picked up my new Shield today and had ordered a holster for it but found out it was 8 weeks away. While at GT Distributors where I got the Shield the salesman showed me his holster. I didn't think much of it from the looks of it but since it was only $18.95 I decided to try it. I really like it. I have about 3 other kinds and I think I am going to like this the best. It is a Glocktech MIC Holster. It is a small piece of kydex formed over the trigger housing and a piece of cord. Sounds dumb but it works. You attach the cord around your belt with just a loop, slide the holster from the front over the trigger housing and stick it in your pants and it stays put. You can carry anywhere you want and if it is too low you just shorten the cord. The cord prevents it from falling down your pants and to draw, lift out and give a fast upward snap when you feel the cord tighten. It is very comfortable and it doesn't print. Sure beats the $50 they wanted for the other holster. The only thing that bothers me is the grip on the Shield is a little irritating against my skin. Glock makes the holster but they make them for other guns. It's only 3 1/4" long and 2" tall. The salesman was carrying a full size with his shirt tucked in. Couldn't see the gun. I've had it on for about 4 hours with a loaded mag and it hasn't moved. If you need to change position just move the gun, doesn't need a special cant just put it were you want to carry.
    Due to the price increase on ammo do not expect a warning shot.

  3. They make to sizes do you know which one would be for the XDs. I'm thinking the small one.

    I think they mold them for each gun so you would have to find one made for the XD. They had quite a few different ones in the store. Look online and see if they have one for the XD. Just look up Glocktech MIC Holster.

    Try wearing an undershirt tucked into your boxers/whities/what have you. The grips irritate my skin too and this makes carrying much more comfortable and with tucking it in this way it is much less likely to come untucked. Plus, even though you are carrying a polymer frame gun there still could be metalic components that come into contact with your skin and over time the oils from your skin will corrode those metal parts. I came accross that holster the other day and it looks pretty cool. Worth the price imo even if it is just another option and not something you carry every day.

  6. I have one and have found the cord to be just a tad too long. How do you trim it?

    The salesman said you just find how long you want it and add another knot. Mine seems fine the way it was. I have found that the holster works for pocket carry or purse carry because it covers the trigger.
