concealed carry options for XDM40?

Just bought the Springfield Armory XDM40 and IM IN LOVE!!!!!!!!!!! this is def the finest auto pistol I have ever held and shot.

just went through an all day class and some time in the next 60 days ill be getting my Utah concealed carry permit in the mail. (Utah ccp is recognised in 32 sister states.)

now... any of you that own this gun what kind of concealed carry options do I have? I know this gun is a little large for concealment but I just want to explore my options. this is the first automatic that I would actualy trust my life to. for riding around on the wheeler and range use I have the factory plastic holster and a uncle mikes canvas holster with the thumb strap but im looking for something a little more hidden. perhaps on my hip or slightly behind my hip on the right side.

I have a G22,...it's kinda big for CC,...but I don't care.

Everyone will have their own "feelings"....but I kinda feel it's better for the weapon to be "slightly" noticeable.

I am glad you went that route.. I thought you would like it most who handle it like it.

Look at safariland.com or holsters.com they have duty rigs for civilian sale.

i also love that gun. i have been looking at their compact version for a while. right now i have a baby eagle 40 that i carry. i put mine in the small of my back when i go places. it's not noticable when you go in stores and buisnesses. i would carry it on my hip outside for all to see but store owners don't like that so..............

Nope. It will fit it. It doesn't stay open enough to reholster with one hand though.
