    Go with the infidel with belt loops. But for a gun that huge you might want to go for a ctac/mtac.

    I use a fobus with the "FBI" tilt is what I call it. I don't carry the xd though in public. I carry a ppk for concealed. The fobus for the xd feels real nice. I tend to stray away from leather belt holsters because I don't always wear a belt. Try both, but what feels best for you.

    ^I was surprised at the accuracy. Mine's .380 and it will shoot circles around a keltec of the same size barrel.

    I got the PPK because of it being smaller. The PPK/S holds one more round and is 2-3 mm longer I think? The /S came about because of an old import ban on the short PPK so they lengthened it.

    I shot it at my CCW class and from 7 yds. I put all 6 shots in a 3" group in a standard silohuette head. I was fairly impressed with it's accuracy right out of the box.

    Although shooting it does leave you with a red spot from the tang. No slide bite just the shock from the tight grip on the tang. You'll develop a callus though and it won't bother you soon enough. lol
