Actually the slide says M&P9c I'm posting from my phone but I'll try to fire up my wife's laptop for pics later.
but what I need is holster recomendations. Preferably IWB and cross draw. But cross draw is the biggest thing.

    I think LMLarsen is the resident all things M&P9 dude on the forum. He'll likely have suggestions for you.

    Those are cool pistols. Congrats!
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Nice.

    I hope it works for you, not what I'd want; but, then the XDm 9 isn't perfect for me either; however, fills a need.

    If you bring it, I'd like to shoot it
    I'll put a box of match 9mm in the can for the shoot.

    I like mine. I just wish I could find a OWB holster for it and a double mag pouch.

    Aw, yer making me blush. Nice score, razorbacker. For the iwb, I really like the Comp-Tac Infidel. Very comfortable for me and reasonably priced, www.comp-tac.com. I've also heard good things about Crossbreed.

    Don't know much about cross draw rigs. (Great, now that old song is stuck in my head...)

    Really, they don't pay me, but look at the Comp-Tac Minotaur.

    Thanks for the input fellers. I'll look up that holster place mr. Larsen. Are these 12 round mags supposed to be so hard to load? Geez those springs are strong.
    Ned, I'll bring it and you can shoot it all you want but you have to load your own mags, lol.

    Excellent choice. The M&P series is my go to. I am fond of RDR Custom Kydex for holsters.

    Happy to help. There's a little device called an UPLULA that helps a lot for loading stubborn magazines; you can get one from your LGS, or places like Midway and Brownells.

    I would also take a look at Alien Gear holsters. I gave them a try last year and find their IWB very comfortable for my SW Shield.

    Get 12 in and let it sit, otherwise load 10 and let it be good.

    Sometimes it is like that
    magnum research mags were like that at first.

    A bit slow on the reply, sorry.....

    Lobo Gun Leather makes a really nice crossdraw holster. I don't do leather holsters, but I've examined one of these and it seemed to be a very high quality bit of kit.
