Need OWB Holster for Daughter and Full Size Handgun

My daughter is 5'5", wants to try IDPA competition. She will need an OWB holster for either a 9mm 5" XD, or 5" Kimber 1911. So, looking for a holster with a bit of a drop. Open to suggestions.

Having not shot an IDPA event, i'm not sure of their rules & format.
Meaning is the holster just for carrying the gun from stage to stage and starting from a "ready position"?
Or do you have to draw from the holster at the start?

2 big differences, that define the build of a holster.
When our own government declares itself as "tyrannical", where does that leave us??!!

Funny, I didn't see a single piece of rope...

You had me curious because I couldn't remember what I bought for my daughter when we were shooting USPSA.

We both have dedicated belts that use velcro - you can adjust them so they hang at the perfect height for rapid draw once the buzzer sounds.

So neither of our holsters (or mag holders) hang off our regular clothing belts.

With that said, I use the one that came with my XD, and for her G17, we have one that has quite a bit of adjustment from Blackhawk. I must have picked that up locally as I've got no record of any online purchase for it. It's not what you'd need, but posting a pic so you can look it up and possibly find something suitable from them?
