Thumbs up S&W M&P 2.0 5 inch 9mm..

Did some trading via Armslist,or as I refer to it " Bring Cash Alley, Version 2.0" .. I had a Gen 2(factory refurbished) Glock 17 that I had also acquired off-paper back in 2005. It worked well mechanically (like most Glocks)but I never really warmed up to the trigger or to the grip angle. I mainly kept it around because" off paper, functional and lots of parts/support/mags/ammo around".
Somehow I wound up shooting a co worker's M&P 2.0 in .45. Worked great, pointed great, loved the trigger and the angle is a natural pointer for me.
Found a guy locally who had a 5 inch M&P 2.0 FDE 9mm with 3 magazines,3 backstraps etc. Virtually unfired. He had three others and wanted a Glock.
I chased down two more 17 round magazines,and am casting about for a good paddle/belt holster with proper trigger guard coverage.
Accurate,no malfs and it seems to like the heavier hollow points and the hotter 124 grain ball(that PPU " NATO") shoots like a rifle in this.
Anyone have a thought for a reasonable good holster?

I have Crown holsters for mine and like them. They're less expensive than most of that type of holster, with pretty good turnaround time as well. At least did at the time; it's been 2-3 years ago I bought mine.



I bought mine with the 1911-style manual safety, and so when ordering the holsters I ordered them with the 'full' sweat guard and modified them so they actually hold the safety 'on' while the gun's in the holster:
gripper and Garand like this.
