    Talking Got my IWB Holster today!

    and the first thing I have to say is WOW!! I am pleased not only with the customer service but the finished project as well. Retention was going to be a concern of mine being a newbie to CC and I was shocked at the fact that I heard and felt my MP40 click into place. Retention seemed to be great with my quick little dry run I did at home during lunch time. I am highly pleased and hope that the satisfaction continues to carry on. After discussing with a couple people and talking to the maker, I decided to go with the Ohio Special from MidWorld Holsters. Its going to be carried at a 2-3 position most likely and it felt great and comfortable. I would even go as far as to say the retention and hold was on par with my Serpa Lv2 minus the actual trigger lock button.

    Very pleased with my first holster!!

    No haha sorry I'm a righty. Mirror has it reflected. I'll try posting some pictures with street clothes on also but so far thumbs up for me. It's got I'd say 10-15* cant. Only complaint I have is the buttons for attaching it are a little stiff to get snapped but that's 1. Being really nitpicking and 2. Probably just due to new buttons.

    Looks like a great rig. So many people just assume that IWB will be uncomfortable so they don't even try it. But I've found IWB to actually work better than OWB most of the time (for me).

    Nice to know that even when you are walking up the wall ~ your gun still stays holstered and in place.

    It is always great to read another favorable review from a happy user. Just a few thoughts. Mark can give you some suggestions on the Dot snaps to get them to work easier. Unless you specified differently, your holster has a 20-degree forward cant, which might make drawing from the 2:00 position awkward and uncomfortable. The forward cant draws the bottom of the grip forward, helping to eliminate printing, particularly on full-sized guns. It also allows a full grip on the gun when holstered while affording a fairly low ride along the belt line, something many other holsters don't accomplish.

    The retention can be more finicky on the M&P holster than on the Glock, a result of more pronounced tension points on the M&P. If you find you have too much retention, Mark or I can help you ease it.

    I have holsters for both my full-sized and my compact M&Ps. I actually prefer the feel of the full-sized holster overall, and find that I always use it, even for the compact. Same thing with my Glocks. My 17 holster (the original prototype for the Ohio Special line) is the one I also use for carrying my 19. This big gun holster design is very accommodating and comfortable for the smaller guns.

    The snaps will get easier as you use them. One thing that can help is rotating the split ring so that the break is at the top of the snap away from the locking tab. This can be done with a small screw driver or a knife blade.

    It looks like that holster does a good job. I'd still like to see it in person before I'd buy one. I'm in the market for one & would like to have it ready to go when my M&P 40C is delivered although I already have a couple of OWB holsters. One of my requirements for an IWB is an adjustable cant as I wear holsters in different positions depending on my clothing.
