I am very happy with my holster from crossbreed. except for the holes in my pants caused by the tip of barrel of my m&p 9mm sticking out of the molded piece.
I called cross breed to ask for a solution since I carry at the six o'clock position. They told me that the holster is not made for that position but the 5 o'clock position. I ask them if they knew that the gun would still make a hole in my pocket then. Their reply was to suggest moving it but they did not have a fix to my problem.
Ok, then if you find a problem, fix that problem. Here is my fix to this issue, add leather to the holster to cover said muzzle part.

If you're open to considering other similar holsters, then Alien Gear's Tuck 3.0 covers my Shield 9mm muzzle to the tip. I'm not sure of your M&P 9 (if it is a Shield or not). I also have a full-sized M1911 from Alien Gear and their Tuck 3.0 for it also covers the muzzle. Does it rub a hole in my pants? It hasn't yet.

I have thought about doing that. I carry a full size m&p 9, not the shield. I found that the main part of the crossbreed has been great for me but I will very much consider your suggestion if this fix does not work.
Thanks for the suggestion and picture.

Let me get this straight, you buy a holster to wear in a way it was not designed, call the company wanting them to fix it? Ok!It would have made since to buy the correct holster for that purpose?

You can't fix $$$$$$.

I've heard the same complaint from several people wearing the Crossbreed as intended. The end of the muzzle being exposed is a problem with this style holster regardless of how you wear it, period.

This is the message I got from crossbreed also. They do not suggest a point in the belt to wear the holster but the 6olcock was one place that it did not work for specifically.
So far, my fix has worked great in that position and I can suggest it for others in the future.
I understand that some may think my position crazy but for my life style and draw, it works well for me.

In my opinion it shows a flaw in their holster design. I had a Supertuck for a J frame that I used for a short while before switching to something else. It did not have that issue. I like Crossbreed but sometimes feel they are over priced. And I still can't understand why after all these years they won't offer holsters for revolvers in K or L frame.
