M&P9c FDE, in OWB stealth gear holster

If you are considering a stealth gear owb holster for the 9c, it is a match made in 2nd amendment heaven. The holster from the moment you get it, you realize it's not like the junk drawer full of other failed holsters. Conceals well, holds gun tight to the body, and it's just a really well made holster, of course you pay handsomely for it, but in my opinion, worth every dollar. Will post picture soon....I have the FDE 9c, with the FDE stealth gear holster, not exact match, but I like it.

Hospital bathroom....my wife had her gallbladder removed. I wore my gun the 3 days I was there, and today when we left, I saw a no conceal carry sign, it is very small, and not noticeable at all. Ky is a no prosecute state, so I felt a little better.....

they are $159.00 but they regularly run 20% off specials.
I always wait for those so I can grab them for $127.00 shipped.
I have one for my shield, my 9C, and my XDM 3.8C .45.
The flex is by far my favorite OWB holster.
I also have an Onyx for my shield and Mini's for the other 2 as well.
I find Stealthgear to be a step up from everyone else in the Kydex hybrid arena.
A bit pricey , but once you wear one for a while , you'll see they are worth the price.
Congrats, if you need an IWB try the mini, it fits the 9C perfectly, I can barely tell the
difference between my 9C in the Mini and my Shield in the Onyx.
the only other Holster I've found to be close in comfort is the N82 pro
but it is a bit bulkier and the twist retention killed it for me (I practiced a lot too)

You are right, you can tell that this holster is the Cadillac of holsters, and yes they are expensive, but if you add together all the other holsters you have tried, its actually inexpensive. I love mine, and I cannot see ever buying anything else.

Chaseman, I finally found that I really like your FDE compact. I even wrote S&W & asked if they made one with a safety. I haven't heard back yet, but did get a response. I also asked if they could tell me when the M&P 9c M2. 0 would be available.

My dealer had a little M&P compact 22 & it was really great. It was in FDE . This was smaller than the regular M&P 22, about the size of a Shield.

Has anyone heard about the 9c M2.0 ?

They do make the same model with the safety, I actually was going to get that one, but decided on the one without a safety. Glad you like it, also check out the new FDE Shields, they are pretty nice too.....

Chaseman, Thanks, you've answered my question on safety's on FDE 9c. I wrote S&W & haven't got an answer yet. I was going to wait until the 9c M2. came out, but I read where S&W changed the trigger on the 9c & the rest in 12/15 to the PC trigger.

I heard from S&W today & they say that neither of the things I ask they have or have planned. I asked if the made the FDE with a safety & if the 9c would be out anytime in the M2.0 . They said no to either.

If they have put the Shield PC trigger in the 9c then it should be fine as is ??? They made the change on 4/13/2015, but now how do you know what you are ordering or buying by serial number. What would 6/1/2015 be or later? Anyone know?
