Hi
For everyone that carries a Smith-Wesson M&P 45 or 40 what holsters are you all using? over all what do you think of the gun especially the M&P 45 cause thats the one I want to get. I think this is a dumb question if you already carry one but do you trust your life and your families life on it in self defense situation? I ask these questions because I normally carry a glock myself and am hooked on those but I am starting to really get a good feeling about the M&P's. So hummer me and give me some good holster Ideas and your opinions on the gun itself. Thanks :rofl::whistling:

... well, getting back OT, my local PD is issued the M&P in .40. I spoke with one of the officers about it and he liked it better than anything else he's used (forgot to ask what their prior issued gun was).

I have enough rounds through mine to know I'd carry it .... if not for the insane trigger job I have on it. The fact that you can get Crimson Trace for them is very appealing as well.

I like Bianchi Carryloc 82 for my MP45

I've started carrying my M&P 9 in the past month. I've been carrying in a Gould & Goodrich pancake type holster I got from Gunners Alley. Carries nicely, but it's actually molded for a G17 (but will also fit....). I just picked up a Galco Concealable for it (that's actually molded for the M&P), and it seems to carry nicely for me, as well.

I just made this for my M&P 45 (still needs final finish):

I really like the M&P 9. I've carried a G19 for years, and I shoot the M&P better, and it's more ergonomic (I can actually drop a mag without twisting the gun in my hand). Jury is still out on the M&P45 since I've only had it about a week.

Did you switch the black backstrap from another gun?

Smith rep. showed me that a fitted leather holster for 9 or .40 would fit the .45...
Pretty neat.

Oh yeah, the M&P 9 backstraps work on the M&P 45. :supergrin:

And the holster I have pictured above will work for the M&P 9, as well. I just molded it for the 45 due to its longer and slightly thicker slide (just barely thicker at the forward serrations).

Nice. There are many leathers out there. The one I like the most are by Safariland which use laminate construction with synthetic materials that feel like leather but are scratch resistant and weather resistant.

Take a look the various holsters offered by Safariland. The pancake holster by Safariland is only about $40 and very versatile.

Bull dog good choice on the Gould & Goodrich holster. I got one for my G30, that I got about 8 years ago. It's still with me after alot of hunting trips in thick brush and some daily carry. You get a lot of holster for the money.

I got a M&P 9c. It looks like it fits holsters for the G26/27. I currently CC it in a DeSantis IWB.

I like the G&G, and it would be fine if I had a Glock 17 or 22, which is what the holster was molded for, but I typically like my guns to ride in holsters that were actually molded for them. I wanted something for my M&P, so I made the holster pictured above (in my first post, not the Galco :supergrin: ).

Probably going to order one of these types ... most likely with thumb break (motorcycle riding) ... as soon as I call and figure out which is for the standard size and which is for the Mid-size.

Old thread.

FWIW, I ended up getting a Comp-Tac paddle for each of my M&P's, as well as a DeSantis w/retention strap for the one which doesn't have a thumb safety. I'm very pleased with the Comp-Tac paddles.

I have the 45 in FDE color and love it. It has found its way to my bedside with a Surefire light attached. I carried it every day off duty and my favorite holster for it is my 5 Shot Leather pancake holster. If you are looking for a quick purchase get a Galco or G&G as stated before.

I carry my M&P40c in a Supertuck from Crossbreed. A very comfortable holster. I can wear it all day without a problem at all.
