Is the M18 a carry pistol or range match pistol ?? If for carry look at a Comp-Tac MTAC or StealthGear Ventcore Mini . The safety will not matter with ether rig . I carried a P320 compact 40 in a mtac for 5 years and 4 months and the same rig works fine for a m&p 4.25 9 or 40 or good enough for a 1911 commander with out changing the kydex body .
I even notched the kydex body for the optic 's on a M&P core 4.25 we have and a p320XC I had .
If you just got a have a owb check out Tucker HF-1 if not optics used .
The "drop leg" holster was designed for carrying a pistol where there is no more room left on your belt because of ammo pouches, canteens and load bearing equipment like rucksacks. Even a parachute gets in the way.
There's nothing more ridiculous than a thigh or drop leg holster on a civilian, by itself, all flapping and banging around.
A sure sign of the wannabe commando types who never served a day in the military.
I'll be getting one of the Safariland holsters with the hood that covers the RDS I have installed. The hood should help keep the optic clear of gun and the holsters retention will keep the pistol falling out when I do run and gun competitions.
Here is a group of holsters that fit my M18. Any that are for a 320 C should work well. You see here top row: Galco VHS which mag pouches will take the 17-round mags with patience and stretching the straps to snap by use.,top right Blade Tech.
Second row left to right: TT Gunleather IWB; Milt Sparks VM2 IWB with Shark accents; RGrizzle Georgia Snap 2 OWB.
