There are so many options out there you may just want to browse on-line and in local stores and see what you think may work. You might want to just go to Amazon and do a search on “M&P .40 Holster” as starting point.

I use and like holsters by:
Milt sparks
Safariland
Simply Rugged
Blackhawk
Crossbreed

I just got a Theis IWB hybrid for my KAHR CM9 It has been very comfortable so far. It appears to be well made, and of quality materials. the height, and cant are adjustable by moving the belt clips, but the Kydex part that actually holds the gun is fixed. It was about $20 less than a Crossbreed, and the delivery time was 8 days. Maybe because he had one in stock, I don't know. But his scheduled delivery time is about half that of Crossbreed. I plan on posting a full review after a couple more weeks of use. It's only been a bit over a week now, and everything has been great so far.

I had the same experience with Theis, the stated time to shipping was a few weeks and I received mine in about a week.

The M&P semi-autos are a great platform choice and I hope your new pistol gives you years of good service. My signature line says it all! I am not a rep for White Dog but they make an outstanding product with a great price and a rapid turnaround time with multiple options. I carry my SR9C in a Purebred, 15 degree forward cant, strong (right) side. I had the sweat shield option added, a necessity in the south, and the holster conceals well, is comfortable to wear, has great retention and draws and reholsters well, too.

Good luck!

Remember " search is your friend". I just did and there are ten'ish threads on holsters. A while back, if I remember correctly, a member had compiled a list of holster makers, a quite extensive list, with links.

I just bought a Glock 36 and the only hoster the gun shop had was an IWB De Santis. It is a nice holster but not what I wanted. I am getting used to it but still looking, maybe a Mitch Rosen ARG. I also have an El Passo Saddelry, floral carved, pancake holster with a thumb break for my 1911, an OWB thats very nice and an Uncle Mikes Vertical, shoulder holster.

Do some research on the net and find one that appeals to you and get it, but. There are "alot" of good guality holsters out there and you'll probably end up with more as your tastes/needs change.

On the lower end of the price spectrum, I just purchased a Kholster and am carying a Glock 26 at about the 4 O'clock position. There are ALLOT of manufactures making this type of holster. I dont see really how any can be much "better" than the other. (obviously assuming metal clips over plastic). I have a rebate code that would even save a few more beans if you went that direction.
