Hello fellow Masshole, The generic stuff is get a holster made for YOUR gun, not a one size for 15 guns type holster. I carry both my G26 (same size as your M&P) and a M&P40 FS in Kholster Crescents. Very comfortable, very well made and very affordable. I'm in the market now for a nice leather one, but for $50 you can't beat it. Also make sure whatever you get holds it's shape if the gun is draw and can't come unhooked by drawing. I would also recommend getting one that is tuckable.
