    M&P compact holster

    I am looking for a holster for an M&P compact 9mm. I prefer leather over kydex but would accept a kydex if it were comfortable to wear. I am wanting IWB carry if possible, something that could stay on for hours on end while in a car. I prefer a clip instead of belt loops, but I do not want a paddle. Oh, I do not want to spend a ton of money on this, I am far from rich, actually just a single parent trying to make ends meat.

    Am I asking for to much? Thoughts?

    Two hybrid holsters that fit your criteria that can be had in fairly quick time:
    1) CompTac MTAC
    2) Crossbreed Supertuck

    Others that may take a little longer:
    1) Tucker Texas Heritage
    2) K&D Dakota Defender

    I have seen the top 2, not the bottom 2 as of yet. I will have to look at those as well. I was looking at the FIST holsters a little bit ago as well. 6-8weeks delivery is the draw back there.

    I dont know what reasonable price wise is, but I would like to stay under $65 if possible. The lower the better.

    I have the K&D Dakota Defender.

    I cannot recommend it highly enough!
    I wear it all day, every day, without an undershirt, in the FL heat, or our terrible winters ( ).

    It is comfortable, secure and looks great.

    Other than that, I can't think of a single reason to get one.

    All the holsters mentioned are great.
    I have the Fist basic pancake for my M&P9C and it is a real nice holster. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was very satisfied.
    Also within your budget.

    All of the holsters mentioned are excellent choices. Since you're trying to find a holster in the $65 price range and are concerned about the wait, you might also try one of these:

    UBG Holsters (I've got a Canute for my MP9c)
    index

    Side Guard Holsters
    Side Guard Holsters - Home Page

    Custom Carry Concepts (these are kydex and the Looper is pretty popular)
    Custom Carry Concepts,LLC : IWB Holsters

    I'd recommend making sure of the company's return policy. You want to be able to wear the holster for a while to make sure it works for you. Also, it wouldn't hurt to contact the holster maker...they can make recommendations on a specific model based on your needs.

    I have the 9c and carry it in a comp-tac MTAC. Carries great, adjustable, extremely comfortable.

    My instructor carries his M&P daily in a Crossbreed Supertuck.

    I just made this same suggestion in another thread, but I'll repeat it here. Check out high noon holsters. I got the split decision IWB for my m&p 40c and I love it. It was under $40 and I think the quality is very good for that price. It's also tuckable. It only took a week to get from FL to WA as it is a stocked item. I found it to be a perfect option for me while I shop for a custom holster (someday. . .) Good luck!

    I think I may go with the high noon. I have to stay on budget and that will help a lot. I would love a custom, but the wait times are high, and the prices, atleast for someone in my social class is high.

    look at dm bullard. He has a double clip and he usually has them in stock for around 60-70bux you can also reverse the clips and wear it OWB
    later
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    I have a OWB on order from Dave for my Ultra Carry. Will give my impression once it arrives.

    Will be waiting. I have a few weeks before I order so I will continue my research.
