This is with the Blade-Tech that comes with the M&P .40 kit. It doesn't seem to keep the heel of the grip inward toward the body and makes it look a bit bulky. But it is comfortable sitting which was a concern I had. There is no cant on this holster and makes it a bit awkward to draw and re-holster. I think some cant will reduce the heel of the grip sticking out as well.
I am looking at a DeSantis IWB with an adjustable cant which I may like better.

This is my daily carry. I alternate between the Kimber Pro Carry HD II and the Pro Carry SLE. Everything else I carry daily. The knife on the left is a CRKT Apache with a full serrated blade for cutting seat belts and such. The Blackhawk mag pouch is for a single double stack mag, but I managed to get 2 single stack 1911 mags into it just fine. The holster is home made. Switch blades are legal carry in Florida w/o a permit. The CRKT Mirage with the Wharncliffe blade is a handy little lock back that doubles as a fighter. The little Brinkmann flashlight beneath the blade is lightweight yet is bright enough for general use.
My first Kimber. A Pro Carry HD II named Domino. She's got a lot of custom features and is a fine shooter, very accurate. I need a little more work done to her though before I'll be happy.
My second Kimber. A Pro Carry SLE named Jazz. She predates the original Pro Carry HD. A bit of custom touches here, too, only less ornate than Domino. A good shooter as well.
My home made holster. The original one had a kids plastic cowboy holster as the core. Several iterations later and this one has a Teflon core. The outer surface is padded with Fun Foam, a crafters sheet foam. The 2 mismatched clips are from cell phone holders. They are held in place with round headed paper fasteners. The area behind the fasteners is padded with fun foam but not the rest of the interior. I covered the entire rig with a course nylon fabric and stitched the sandwiched material together using binding tape before folding it over stitching it together. The grey backing is made of 2 separate sandwiched panels. The outer panel has a fun foam core and the inner one a core of Teflon.
Because I'm overweight and carry ISWB I needed something to beef up my pants (I wear an elastic belt) so I made a stiffener out of stiff seatbelt material and keep it in place on my pants with snaps. I also wear suspenders under my shirt to support the weight of my pants with all that I carry in and on them. I wear the holster with a forward cant on my right hip just after the 3 O'clock position. Because it's so stiff it stays open so I can reacquire it with one hand. I carry the mag pouch on my left side. And not shown is a pair of handcuffs that I carry in my left rear pocket.
