With permission of the clergy I conceal carry at my church. I was looking for an ankle holster to avoid wearing big un-tucked shirts over my outside-the-waistband-holster. I did not want a small-of-back or in-the-waistband holster for reasons of comfort so I ordered this ankle holster.
The holster is easy to put on and take off. The spandex/velcro setup lets you make the holster fit just right for your leg. It holds securely I never feel like it will suddenly come loose/off.
It should go without saying that it IS added weight to your leg. It will take a few minutes to get used to it. I have learned that relaxing your leg as you walk and letting the added weight "swing" forward as you walk is the best way, instead of trying to fight/control the additional weight. Wearing tight leg jeans is not an option with an ankle holster. You should have enough room for coverage and quick draw if needed. The thumb break and trigger quard tension screw keep the gun perfectly in place. Add to that the fact that this holster is custom molded to fit the S&W M&P 9c your M&P will fit with no un-nerving movement at all times. The sheep skin padding is a great touch and comfortable.
Bottom line: If you are looking for a great ankle holster for your M&P 9c, look no further! This holster is worth the few extra dollars over the "generic" ones that will not have the quality/fit/retention of this DeSantis holster.
Pros: Great retention, comfortable, adjustable, custom fit
Cons: Added weight on ...
