Default Suggestions / Input for CC holster - M&P Semi's

**** My apologies, may have posted under wrong topic previously ****

Looking for a small of back holster for both of my CC's so I don't have to keep swapping out holsters. I need a holster to safely and securely work with both my weapons, depending on which I chose to carry on any given day...... they each are M&P Mid-Size models, the calibers are .40/.357sig and a .45. I prefer carry postioning to be horizontal vs. vertical........Right-Hand Draw.
Any suggestions or input pertaining to a holster meeting the requirements will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Kindly for you time...... I look forward to any and all of your replies!!

You're kind of limited in choice for horizontal small-of-back carry. Warm weather carry would present a problem concerning "printing", as the M&P is really not that slim when coupled with a holster. That being said, the only viable choice I see would be a leather "pancake" with horizontally aligned loops that snugs tightly to the body. There are a number of makers out there, but the good ones aren't cheap. Customs are even more expensive, but if there is a maker nearby they can fit the leather to your body-type for optimal concealment and get the exact draw-angle you are seeking.

I would strongly suggest NOT using a S.O.T.B. holster of any kind. Not only are they uncomfortable while sitting down, they are somewhat dangerous if you fall and land on your back! They won't help your clothing or car seats either! I could see using one temporarily if you were standing 8 hours a day, but for real world use they never made too much sense to me. YMMV.......
