    Question Holster for S&W MP9



    Hi all, I'm new to these forums, so forgive my noob-ness. I have a full frame S&W MP9mm. I just took the Arizona CCW course and am now looking for a good carry holster for it. I work in a "business casual" environment (tucked in collared shirts and dress pants) and need something that can provide me adequate concealment. A buddy suggested something called a "Pager Pal". Does anyone know about this? Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks guys and gals.

    Comp-Tac MTAC. Comfy, tuckable, and their customer service is first-rate.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    What are the pros and cons of an IWB holster vs an ankle holster? Or even between differend IWB holsters? I'm looking at the M-TAC, the Infidel and the Pro Undercover holsters

    Also take a look at the CrossBreed SuperTuck. IWB and Tuckable as well.

    Also make sure you have a good gun belt.

    I think a full-size M&P is going to be way too big to comfortable carry in an ankle holster.

    I frequently carry an M&P 9c in the MTAC, and it is my favorite holster (I also have one for my P226).

    You won't go wrong trying the "Phantom" holster from Raven Concealment Systems.

    An ankle carry of a full size pistol is near impossible with out printing badly. IWB conceals more of the pistol with less of a cover garment. On the waist carry provides quicker access to the pistol in a emergency.
    Different people find different IWB holsters most comfortable to them. Differing body size and types contribute to what feels best/ works best for you. Unfortunately it can be trial and error resulting in the dreaded box 'o holsters.

    Thanks for the advice. That's what I'm afraid of...waisting $$ on a holster that I don't like or doesn't work the way I want it to. I'm sensing a mix of leather and Kydex is the best way to go (for comfort and function). Is it better to order online, or to wait for a gunshow??

    Just order them online. The SuperTuck has a two week trial period where you can return it if you don't like it.

    I ordered the Phantom online just now. I read some other forums highly recomending it above all others. I'm excited to try it out!

    Good luck, and be sure to give a review after you've tried it out.
