I am currently using a VM2 made for the Glock 21 and am having a printing problem. In an email to Milt Sparks they said "of course" you are having a printing problem you are using the wrong holster. Does anyone have a VM2 for the M&P? If so could you please post a picture of your gun in it so I can see how it sits in the holster compared to mine setup.

I'll be ordering one shortly. I can carry in my CTAC with very little printing. Since I'm only 5'5" and 135lbs it's tough for me to conceal a full size M&P but the CTAC definitely makes it easier. I imagine the VMII will be twice as good.

I have another thread on here about my printing problem. I have carried many firearms in VM2s with no problem. This is the first weapon I am having a problem concealing. I thought it might have been the beavertail causing the problem so I removed it, didn't solve the problem.

My VM2 should get to me in April too. We'll let you know in April if the VM2 specifically for the M&P has printing problems. I can tell you this though:



My cousin is a Glock guy. I'm poor. So until my VM2 comes, I called my cousin and asked him if he had a Glock 20/ 21 holster I could borrow for a few months because I don't want to spend $30-50 on a holster I'll never use again after I get my VM2 (I compete with my VM2). He lent me a Safariland 6004 tactical drop leg holster. Not exactly what I had in mind, but beggers can't be choosers. But it didn't fit. My M&P rode about 1/2" too high. The locking mechanism of the holster couldn't clear the beaver tail.



I noticed a plastic sleeve on the tension bolt where the trigger guard sits. I took it off to look at it, and I noticed it was about 1/2" thick. So I put the bolt back in sans sleeve, and voila, my M&P slid in 1/2" more, and fits like a glove. I don't have any Glocks so I don't know for sure, but I think the front of the trigger guard on the M&P is about 1/2" further away from the butt of the gun than the trigger guard of the Glock. This could cause a printing problem.



But we'll let you know in April.

I can see this is going to turn into another thread that goes stupid. Have you put a Glock and a M&P next to each other? They are pretty close. Thank you Mr. Obvious for pointing out the obvious. The whole point to this thread was to see if someone ALREADY has a VM2 for the M&P. I'd like to see how it rides in the correct VM2. I am betting that there will not be much difference. For me, maybe not anyone else, my shirt is tucking itself in behind the butt of the grip. Have not had that problem with various 1911s, Glock 17 and HK P2000 all in VM2s. If the proper VM2 sinks the M&P deeper in the holster so more of the barrel is being pressed against the hip, forcing the butt of the gun in tighter, then I think the printing issue will go away. I was just hoping someone already had one so we could see a picture of how deep it rides.
