    S&W M&P compact owners whats your carry Rig?

    I'm really looking at an M&P compact in 9mm and am interested in which is the best IWB and OWB Rig for this gun? Do you guys fins this gun easier to conceal IWB or OWB? Do you think it could be effectively concealed in the summer time? Pics of anyone concealing an M&P compact would be great as well thanks.

    I don't have any pics for you but my M&P 9c conceals really well in a Comp-Tac Minotaur and is really comfy. I also have a spare mag in my weak side pocket sitting in my galco pocket mag holster. Works well.

    My OWB holster that fits my full size M&P also fits my compact. But I almost always pocket carry my compact.

    I use a CTAC, but will be replacing it with a RCS phantom when I have the money. The CTAC conceals fine, I'm 5'11" and 160, and can get away with wearing just a medium tshirt, it disappears wearing a polo or vented buttonup.

    Kydex paddle by G-Code, model G-A002. Been using it for the past two years and love it.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    IWB Comp-Tac Mtac
    Ankle with Galco Ankle Lite
    Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters

    Currently looking for an OWB and thinking of the Comp-tac Gladiator or the Blade-Tech Stingray.

    I think OWB may end up being more comfortable but I am not certain. IWB with the right holster really isn't bad. Just stretches my jeans out. Alos I think during the summer here in Florida OWB may be better.

    I use a Supertuck every day, 12 hours a day. Very comfortable.

    Thanks guys and how are the M&P compacts as far as reliability? I love how these guns fit my hand but I've yet to shoot one.

    A trigger job or the Apex drop-in really changes any M&P to a very nice gun. Factory triggers leave a lot to be desired.

    I have the 9c and never had any problems with it.

    Very reliable. Never had any problems with mine. Have it about 6 months and have about 1,000 through it. Did a lot of research before I bought it and all was positive.

    As far as the trigger goes I am completely satisfied with the way it feels out of the box.

    I never had a problem with mines other than the fact that I can't stop putting it down

    My wife and I both carried our M&P's in a CompTac Minotaur before we moved to the PRK...

    I've put about 2,000 rounds through two M&Ps, no problems.

    My 9c is in a Supertuck. Pretty comfortable most of the time.
