Default Holster for a m&p45c

I am looking for an OWB holster for my m&p 45 compact. I want something with good retention and preferably leather. I talked to a guy who had a bianchi paddle lock holster for his glock and it seemed like a cool design. The problem is that I cannot find it for my gun.

Let me know what you guys are using and how it is working for you. Also, do you know of any holsters for a different model that the 45c will fit in?

You could look up the specs on the gun and find a holster for a glock model with around the same measurements.
Maybe a galco?

I thought about that. If I go with a thumb break design, im sure I can make something work. I have several galco iwb holsters. I have never seen anything they make that I don't like. Do you have any of their owb's that you recommend?

I did about 5 years ago. Can't remember what the name of it was. I carried my 1911 in it for about 2 years. It was comfortable and I never had any problem with it.
I think I put a couple extra stitches in the thumb break just to increase the tension so it released easier and quicker.

Check out Garrett Industries. They make great leather lined Kydex holsters. I have one of their Silent Thunders for my Nighthawk and couldn't be more pleased with it.

I just picked up a tagua thumb break holster for a glock 19. It fits the m&p very well. Thanks for the advice.
