    I carry the Safariland holster for my Springfield XD40 I have the hood guard and the sentry guard. It takes some getting use to to draw quickly as you have to use your thumb to release both mechanisms. I got mines from tactical deals ( a friends shop ) since it was hard for me to find the holster at any local store.

      Wow, it's hard to believe that this thread is now over a year old. Is that a Security Info Watch record?

        I am assigned to Installation Entry Access control at a Military Facility. Having said this I am required to carry the Beretta M9 / 30rds issued. I carry this in a Safariland level 3. We often do Vehicle inspections and use mirrors. So Weapon retention is also very important. It all works. Personally, my Sig 228 would be my choice of Duty carry.

          Is it contract private or are you employed with the civilian branch of the military?

          Yes Safariland Level 3 holster is a really good choice in my opinion if you want to go for weapon retention.

          Over a Beretta M9, I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to switch to Sig. Oh boy, I hope I don't stir the pot for another year with this comment.

Compete in IDPA, shoot a few hundred rounds a month. Same holster for work, match, and concealed carry.

                  Wouldn't a Springfield M1911A1 be better for when on water? One of their tests is that it must be able to function under water, not that it is recomended. I can't find the video but it is pretty cool to see.

                  I don't have an on duty weapon because it is against policy but off duty I either carry this in .45 with 1 extra 8 rd mag or carry a small Skyy CPX-1 10+1 rds without extra mag, depending on wardrobe. If we ever do go armed though the .45 is what I want to carry. I use it in competition so I am pretty comfortable with it, albeit my competition holster is only level 1 retention.

                  For carry I always use Federal Hydrashocks in either weapon.

                      I have been gathering duty weapons for many years, so I have quite a few. Lately, I've been carrying the SW M&P in .45 ACP on plainclothes duty. I use my Ruger P345 in my open-carry duty belt. When it cools off I usually go with the Beretta Vertec 9mm or the P345 in shoulder rigs. For low-light ops I go with the SW M&P .45, the P345, or the Vertec with sure-fire weapon light.

                      For concealed carry off-duty or when doing PI work I sometimes carry the HK P7 or a Glock 36. I usually pack a Sig P6 9mm in my briefcase.

                      I pack on a daily basis, so comfort and ease of carry are important. Also, the situation often dictates which weapon I carry.

                        On Hospital Runs/Transport... S&W .38, and maybe Remington Tac Stock 870.
                        Mobile... S&W .38, and .223 Mini-14.

                              On duty - Nylon - Uncle Mike's Pro-2 holster
                              On duty - Leather - Uncle Mike's Pro-2 Mirage holster
                              On duty - Casual - Brown - JBP leather with thumb break

                                I wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything from Uncle Mike's. Actually, if I had my weapon in an Uncle Mike's holster, I would be dead! They are cheaply made and fall apart under normal wear. Uncle Mike's is good for airsoft gamers and nothing else.
