View Full Version : Silent Thunder "Slim" for S&W M&P 9mm full size

July 6, 2011, 11:07 PM
Am considering the Silent Thunder "Slim" for S&W M&P 9mm full size. This holster has a Kydex exterior and is permanently lined with leather. The "Slim" has a single semi-wide-ish clip off-set to the rear, so it's not sitting right on the side. That makes it slimmer. My reasoning is that if it's less obtrusive and easier to put on the belt and remove from the belt, it will make life a lot easier. Right now, I'm just carrying in my pants pocket - not such a comfortable or useful way to carry a full size M&P! Compared to that, almost anything will be an improvement. But my concern is - just how easy/difficult is it to put that holster with gun onto the belt, and how easy is it to remove it? I can tolerate some deviation from perfect stability, but only if it means easier mounting and removing from the belt.

Any thoughts on/ experience with this?
