Full size M&P .40

Does anybody here carry one of these concealed? Is it difficult to keep from printing too much? How do you carry it: appendix, 4 o'clock, etc? And what kind of holster do you like?
I've got one, and I'm going to get my CCW soon (I keep saying that, but haven't yet....but soon). I'm probably going to get a Shield later, but wanted to see if anyone else carried the full size M&P and how well that worked for you.
Thanks.

    They do make a 4" M&P as well as the 5".

    I've CC'd both a 5" 1911 and a fullsize M&P 9 with no issue using a IWB holster and a button down shirt untucked.

    Do you know or remember what kind of holster you used IWB? There's only about a million choices out there that I've been looking through....

    Take a look at Comp-Tac's products. I use their Gladiator to carry both my full size M&P45 and my M&P9c. Conceals well and very comfortable.

    Don't give too much thought to printing issues, so far I carry a Glock 17, and as much as I print, I have not had any problems, I wear a cover garment and I am good to go.

    I carry at about the 3:30 to 4:00 position in a Bianchi holster with thumb break. To conceal I wear an untucked polo shirt over it, just get them in the tall sizes and should be good to go. Attached is a link to the holster I use, which even takes into consideration the thumb safety that mine has.
