I just purchased a S&W M&P45C to fill a CCW role. I've been looking around for holsters in mostly big names. I've noticed M&P45 Compact isn't on any drop lists for ordering. I realize the pistol is somewhat new. (available this year I believe) Does anyone know if this 45C will fit another model's mold. The barrel is still 4.25" but i'm not sure if the slide is wider than it's 9mm or 40s&w siblings. I would like both OWB and IWB holsters. I like blackhawk's serpa, but the serpa sport is a bit hard for me to conceal without a jacket. I live in the south so cold weather doesn't come our way very often. Sure is fast, though. I was also pointed towards the "dual carry" IWB from D M Bullard Leather. I'm new to the CC world so, holster recommendations are also appreciated. OK, now I'm starting to ramble... I appreciate the advice, fellas and fella-ettes.

I carry the S&W M&P40c everyday in a cheapo $30 Desantis IWM holster. When I do carry OWB, I have a Blackhawk Serpa holster that is actually meant for the full size M&P, but the compact fits in in perfect.

http://www.crossbreedholsters.com Try this site. Mark can make you one or it does fit into the M&P40 holster just fine. I have not shot mine yet since I just got it back from S&W, but I'm very optimistic it will be a sweet CCW piece.

The barrel on the compact and mid-size M&P45 is 4" (full size is 4.5"). I'm using a Comp-tac CTAC with my M&P45c.

I have a HUGE holster collection.
Recently I added a M&P9mm to my collection, I'll order another "Cross Breed Holster" when the funding permits. For now, a "Smart Carry", http://www.smartcarry.com/, I already own will have to work.
A M&P45C is on my "short list" of things to buy in '09.
