    Permit: Finally. Gun: Check. Holster? HELP! -S&W M&P

    So I finally got my permit on Wed in the mail from NYS. Thursday brought me a S&W M&P 40. I need recommendations for an IWB holster. I know Cross Breed's get a lot of good recommendations around here, but what do YOU recommend? Looking to buy within a week or so - tell me what to get!

    btw, I'm looking primarily for an IWB, however I live in WNY, and winter is around the corner, which means hoodies and coats, so I'm open to suggestions on OWB as well...

    Look in here... http://www.fist-inc.com/holsters/Default.htm
    IWB see Fist #1A
    OWB see Fist #12 Basic

    I have several of each for different firearms and really appreciate the quality, fair price, and quick delivery. As always, OMO.

    Congrat's. But don't forget about a high quality gun belt. It's part of the whole system.

    Good luck....

    There are some up and coming holster makers and some real pros that are DC members. I am not in the market for another one but I will be spending my money with some of them when I do.

    You need to find what works for you.

    Until you figure out what you really want, just grab a $10-$15 generic IWB holster, such as Blawkhawk! or Uncle Mikes. They're NOT a long-term solution, in my opinion, but will get you by until you decide on a "real" holster.

    Good holsters can be found in a whole range of type and prices,some people not only like a good functional holster but like a ferrari,some people would really like a ferrari but got Pinto money,do some research,some people got holster drawers of ones they bought and didn't like....I got one of holsters I made and didn't like.Nothing is worse than griping about a holster that didn't work out,but when your the one that made it it's humbling

    I'd take a hard look at the MTAC, CTAC and Supertuck. There's a much better chance that you'll find these holsters comfortable for your preferred carry position because you have the ability to adjust them to a cant and ride height that is comfortable for you. Other holsters don't offer that. I will disagree with the "buy a cheap one for now" comments. Spend that money on a Wilderness belt or put it toward the holster that will last.

    adaman I agree with you - i don't like to waste money. Going to do the research first. Shitty part is that I can't try any of them for feel before I buy. I wish I could get hands on something like that first. I'm happy winters coming - my summer attire is adidas soccer shorts. I'm assuming carry w/those wouldn't work out too well...

    Take a look at the Comp-Tac Gladiator. Have had mine for 2 weeks now and conceals a Sig 220 Carry under a Polo shirt very well and is very comfortable. It is an OWB.http://comp-tac.com

    That's a good looking holster.

    I recommend just that "Cross Breed Super Tuck".

    I'd recommend the SuperTuck, also.
