There's a lot of really great holsters out there. CrossBreed, Galco, Bianchi and many others all put out great products, no question about it. I am privileged to know not one but two custom holster makers, Dennis of Dragon Leatherworks, and Michael from Michael's Custom Holsters.

Michael sent me this Tuckable IWB holster for the Smith & Wesson M&P9 compact. It's supremely well-made, with double stitching in critical junctures. The holster is "rough out" construction, so that the interior is smooth and precisely molded to the M&P, but with sufficient "rough" outside to help hold the holster steady inside the waistband. Sturdy metal belt clips located on the outside edges also keep it in place, as well as helping distribute the weight evenly over the belt.

It's eminently tuckable, as well - with the clips placed under a belt and a shirt tucked over the holstered firearm, the entire rig just disappears under clothing. Only the very bottom of the clips are visible, and unless you know exactly what to look for and where to look, even concealed carriers have trouble spotting the holster's presence.

MSRP starting at $200, with a variety of custom options available.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
