Just wondering how many of you carry you fullsize m&p around and whats the best method to hide it and still be comfortable and not be noticed. With summer here harder to count on a jacket to hide a regular holster.

I carry my fullsized 9 in a C.T.A.C. as long as I have a loose fitting shirt on over. It stays pretty hot here so I too am limited in my clothing options. I will be interested to see what others think.

Not an M&P, but close..... I carry using a C-Tac and have another one on the way for my next carry piece which is a mid-size auto between the size of the M&PC and Full Size.



I have an Infidel with Ghurka strut for a M&P 9mm that I could part with if you are interested. Carried only twice, it's bran new.

I am having no trouble carrying my full size M&P9. I carry it in an Comp-Tac Infidel holster with the Ghurka strut. I wear it at about 3 oclock and use a loose fitting shirt as a cover garment. I can even get by wearing shorts and sandels and a Hawaiian shirt and no one gives me a second look.

I've been carrying my full size in a Galco Side Snap scabbard for a Glock 22. It's a 99% fit and conceals pretty well.

I used to carry my commander 1911 in a Brommeland Maxcon V...

Now, I carry my M&P40 in a CTAC...



Honestly, I don't like the feel of the kydex againts my hips and the bottom of the holster poking my butt cheak (i carry 3:30 to 4:00).

I like the brommeland better... because its smoother and has a bottom flap. The bottom flap, for some reason makes it more comfortable. Though the CTAC is sure the faster draw between the two.

I use a Rafter S leather OWB. I prefer dead cow to kydex. It tends to be considerably more comfortable IMO. I wear an unbuttoned short sleeve shirt over a t-shirt with no problems.

When you guys refer to 3 o'clock or 4 o'clock position are you talking about the muzzle of the gun pointing in that direction? wouldn't that point the loaded business end in direction of your manhood? Sounds like a risky thing to me.

The o'clock reference indicates the pistol's position if your belt was the face of a clock. 12:00 buckle, 3:00 right hip, 6:00 small of back, 9:00 left hip, etc.

I wear a heavy gunbelt as a regular belt because when I carry concealed, I just tuck the gun inside my waistband at 4 o'clock and call it good. Because of the burly strength and thickness of the gunbelt, this works GREAT with all of my pistols, full size as well as compacts. I carry for several hours this way every day. The heavy gunbelt is really the key element here! Only issue I've had is with my 40C... the mag catch button is so sensitive that it's the one semi-auto pistol I have that when I carry this way... the mag catch button tends to get depressed slightly at times, just enough to drop the mag while the gun is tucked in my waistband. I wish I could find a way to beef up the mag catch spring so it would take a fair bit more than just barely touching it to activate the drop. I have a bunch of holsters for a bunch of great carry guns and whenever I use them, I always go back to IWB carry with gunbelt, but without holster and it just feels and works great for me. I guess I just don't like the extra bulk that holsters add. :roll:

DHart,



Have you ever had any training? Please defend your choice of carry because as I understand it, that is a highly suspect form of carry. No school in their right mind would ever allow that type of carry as it is very dangerous and highly inefficient. However, that would be another topic and I don't wish to hijack this thread.



As for my preference of holster I'm in love with the Blade-Tech UCH.

I have an M&P40 in a Blackhawk CQC. I'm only 140 lbs. and the paddle works for me. As soon as I find a good leather OWB holster, I'll use it and use the Blackhawk for IDPA.

Walkingbush... I'm not a professional gunslinger nor do I advocate to others that they should carry as I do. No doubt my more casual method of carry runs counter to what most pros would recommend, but it works very well for me. Of course I would use a holster in any training program. The CTAC has my interest in this large field of holster possibilities...

I carry my full size M&P 9 in a Don Hume H721 OT. Works great with an un-tucked shirt. Carry a Stoeger Cougar the same way, but that's even easier. It only has a 3 1/2" barrel.
