    Does anyone have one of these and if so,

    -Does it feel pretty secure on your belt
    -And does your gun feel secure

    I have a full size M&P.45 and am looking at buying one of these, any thoughts will help, thanks

    Anyone? The only reason I'm asking is because I found it cheap online and don't want to mess with returning it if I don't like it.

    I have no experience with that holster, but in general, nylon is not a good holster material choice.

    Leather or kydex are much better materials for holsters. The M&P 45, while polymer, is still a pretty good sized pistol and needs a solid holster.

    High Noon and Horseshoe Leather are excellent options, but even if you don't buy from them, take a look at their FAQ sections, they explain a lot of holster design features.

    High Noon (I own a Slide Guard, very nice)

    Horseshoe Leather

    For kydex try
    Comp-tac

    Raven Concealment (I own a Phantom, an excellent holster with several options for wear)

    Tucker Gunleather (for leather lined kydex, and very nice leather too)

    I have a low opinion, in general, of both nylon and three-slot holsters. Unless lined, when coupled with the fact that most of them are not specifically molded to a particular gun, nylon is far rougher on finishes than either leather or plastic. The extra material needed for the third slot adds bulk to the holster, making it unattractive, as well as the third slot not being positioned well for anything.
