I love a good leather holster, but I opted for a Comp-tac holster for my new M&P. Delivery was less than a week, the quality excellent in the belt model, and the price fair for the market. Certainly comparable to my Blade-Techs or my Cen-dex (not sure of Frank's current whereabouts but I treasure my Nighthawk for my Glock 19). The quick turnaround made it all the more pleasant. Smooth/fast on the draw--can't ask for more.
Third range session with my M&P9 did nothing but confirm that this is a great gun. I giddily added magazine number 5 to my rig in celebration--this is one fine shooter. I see the M&P very rapidly moving to the near top of my favorite list.
