    Your comment got my mind to wandering and I started imagining a line of firearms specifically built for and marketed to doctors and accountants. It gave me a much needed laugh at the end of my day.

    This is a good option but I'm not in the mood to spend $100+ on another holster at the moment. I will keep the option open if that's what I have to do.

    Yes I'll be calling S&W

You could aways trade it for a glock and deal with it that way. Id probably really put in a new one then grease it because once its pitted, your probably not going to get all the rust off. Maybe your part wasnt treated from the factory like it was supposed to be or something like that.
    Yes I used GREASE, and I never said it didn't work, it's to early to tell since it's only been a day that I noticed the rust.

    you are not the only one with this problem, mine has been getting rust in the same area. I took the button out and scrapped at the rust with a knife gently to make sure it wasn't some type of sauce. It was definitely rust. I am using a theis horsehide holster with this, but I am in phoenix az so it gets pretty hot and sweaty here.

    Try Dustin @ Ozark (he's a member here) $45 shipped/insured horsehide/kydex and the one he built us for the M&P 40C seems to cover all and then some (without being bulky)
