    New M&P Shield 9

    Got a new M&P Shield 9 Dark Earth. Paid $389 before the rebate.

    Any suggestions on an IWB holster? And what cleaning products do you use?

    Thanks,

    Great gun! Mine is 4 years old and has been flawless. I use CLP , Hoppes and M7 Pro for cleaning, and welcome to the forum!

    Nice looking Shield! I use Strike Hold on most of my guns. It puts a coating on the metal that adheres and is hydrophobic. It is also a dry lubricant that carbon does not stick to. After shooting you can usually just wipe your gun clean with a dry cloth. I do use MPro7 grease on the slide. But, maybe you are more traditional. I suggest making your own CLP from inexpensive ingredients. The concoction is called Ed's Red Gun Bore Cleaner. It can be made by the gallon from ingredients found at a hardware store or Walmart.

    I like Kydex IWB holsters.

    Zorn makes a good one.

    A less expensive one can be found on Ebay like:

    ( Search Ebay for: Custom-Molded-Synthetic-IWB-Holster-Browing-CZ-Ruger-S-amp-W-Springfield )

    These holsters are comfortable, thin, have a bit of retention and stay open after you draw allowing easy reinsertion with one hand. $25 is a good deal for a custom molded holster.
    Cheers! Marc
