    Hello I would be grateful for help on a carry question.
    I just bought a 2nd handgun for home defense. It’s a full sized XD Mod2 9mm 5″ Tactical. If I ever decided to carry it outside the home what kind of holster and what position would be practical? I prefer AIWB but not sure if that is feasible.
