CCW/Holsters - Please Help

Hello All,

I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I have been reading all of your posts for weeks now and want to let you know that I really appreciate all of the information that is made available.

Recently I purchased an M&P-9 and thus far really like it. I plan to use this gun as my first concealed carry. So far I have found it quite difficult to avoid printing. My build doesn't seem to help the situation as I am 6'2" and 160 lbs. Reading some of the other posts it seems that most are opposed to SOB. Since I don't like to wear jackets and usually have just a light shirt on, my options seem to be limited. I don't know if I should go with a strong side IWB, one of those invisible carry holsters, or look into some other option.

Can anyone recommend an affordable option to help me with this problem?

Also, what is the best option CCW for women. My girlfriend is very small and doesn't seem to have much option for on her person. On the other hand, having it her purse makes me nervous since that is the first thing a perpetrator will likely go for.

I highly recomend Comp Tac holsters. And yes, they make most if not all of their holsters for the S&W M&P. I would recomend the Comp Tac C-T.A.C. Their new Infidel model looks promising if set up in one of these designs....."Shirt Tucker, Ghurka, Adjustable. But for a little extra, I'd still recomend the C-T.A.C. first.

heres some pictures of the C-T.A.C........



And heres their website. I hope its ok for us to advertise like this. These are great people. Great customer service and a holster thats worth trusting your life to. And in all honesty, i really think the price is very acceptable.

If you dont have a good belt yet. Id recomend The Wilderness Original Instructor Belt. Get it in 5 stitch(stiffer than 3 stitch), in either 1 1/2 or 1 3/4 inch wide models. A very good belt to compliment a very good holster.


heres a website direct to the can buy the belt elsewhere, but i usually try stickin to whoever makes said product, if at all possible.

Hope this helps. :wink:

The C-T.A.C. seems to be a good looking versatile holster. I really like the idea of having adjustability. I do have two more questions though. Which style clips have the most practical balance between concealability and pistol support? Also, there seems to be a real debate about which is better, leather or kydex. What are the advantages of each?

On a side note, I would still really like to hear what options are available for women.
