I actually had mine custom made from a re-tired police officer locally, he only charged $40.00 to make the holster. When i got it it fit so perfect not to tight and not too loose. When it is on me it fits to my body. The thumb break is very smooth. Check out his webpage. My pistol is a 9mm Full size.
I have the Desantis speed scabbard with no thumb break for my 9mm. It has very good retention that I don't think a thumb break would even really be necessary. I put the gun in it (unloaded) and ran around a bit to see it it would wiggle out at all but it was still seated. Smooth draw also for how well it holds the gun.
I have the DeSantis speed scabbard (no thumbreak) for my M&P9 and I'm happy with it. I've used this style of holster in the past with other guns and was pleased, plus it was one of the only holsters available at the time of my purchase so it was a no brainer.
ETA: I also currently own the same holster for my SW1911PD.
I have the black DeSantis with no thumb break for my 9c, and I use it about 90% of the time. The other 10% my CTAC gets used. It's a really good holster, and I'd suggest it to anyone looking for a nice OWB holster.
