#DIGTHERIG – Andrew and his Springfield EMP 9mm



1. What I carry: Springfield Armory EMP 9mm w/ Federal HST Ammunition

2. What I carry it in: Vedder Holsters Horsehide Rapid Tuck

3. Why I carry this particular gun in this particular holster: The 3″ 1911 design fits easily IWB but isn’t so big that it pulls down my belt. Though it’s a single stack, it packs 9+1 which is a couple more than other single stacks I was considering. I’ve taken my time to condition and break in the Vedder horsehide. I originally had an AG 2.0 but felt it was to bulky for my waist. Both are great holsters; I find the Rapid Tuck to be more comfortable for me.
