So I recently bought an M&P 40 and know nothing about holsters. My overall goal is to carry concealed as soon as I get my carry permit. I'd like to carry at the waist and am left eye dominant but have always shot rifles right handed. Any recommendations?

IWB or OWB, and what is your normal attire?
Do you plan to change your attire to conceal a firearm and if so how much?
Think of your normal day to day activities and what might work out best for you.
I dress casual and didn't have to make many changes in my normal clothing other than checking the length of my cover shirts. I carry OWB almost always. Winter I wear jeans and a sweatshirt, sometimes with an undershirt for warmth, summer is shorts and T-shirt weather. On rare occasions I will use a smart carry holster in the summer months if I'm not wearing something with beltloops.

I'm right handed and left eye dominate. Go with works the best for you. But I also make left handed holsters.

+2 Pure Kustom.
Go with the best off the bat and you wont regret it!
Wow I think I'm getting information overload here. How do you guys feel about nylon as opposed to leather or hard case? It seems like some of the larger holsters might get kind of hot?
+1 for the crossbreed. I've been carrying my M&P40c in one for 2+ years and I've never had cause for complaint.

I first purchased the Crossbreed Supertuck. The Supertuck is a very comfortable and functional holster. You can't go wrong with it.
I just purchased a Black Ops Pro from Rocky at Pure Kustom. I have had it for 1 week and I will be writing a review soon. This is a very versatile holster that can be work inside the waste band 27 different ways or outside the waste band. This holster if very nice and also very comfortable.
Although I love my Supertuck, I haven't used it since I bought the Pure Kustom. If I had to do it over again I would have just went straight to the Pure Kustom (not taking anything away from the supertuck. I am having a hard time deciding whether I should sell it. Thats how much I like it).
The way I look at it is do you want a comfortable and functional holster that isn't the nicest looking thing (Supertuck) or do you want a holster that functions as two holsters, is also comfortable, and every time I look at it I say to myself DAMN that is a nice holster.
Here is a picture of my holsters.

Well the supertuck looks awesome but it has a pretty large surface area. I'm not sure if I should go with it or a smaller holster. If the custom is more versatile than it seems like smaller= better but comfort is important for extended use
I can wear both all day without a problem. Especially since they both are adjustable, you can find the most comfortable position.
I carry my M&P 40c in either my The Slide or Double Clip. I love my M&P and the 40 recoil is very tame with the great ergonomics.
I have in stock a The Slide OWB pancake style holster left handed and Double Snap IWB right handed.
