Default Holster for M&P45

Hey guys, I went and bought a M&P45 a few months ago and I'm going to be getting a CCW pretty soon. Before I even start the process I wanted to find a good holster, the only concern I have is that the M&P I have has no real safety. The trigger does take quite a bit of resistance relative to other handguns, and I know that if I don't carry it chambered there wont be any big problems, but I still don't like the idea that my trigger could possibly be engaged from certain movements like jumping, running, or bumping into something. Would a holster like the one on S&W's website with the thumb break be sufficient and prevent this from happening? I thought that if I could find one that is made from a hard plastic like certain ones I've seen Glock carriers use it would be harder for the trigger to get engaged, but given that good holsters for these M&P45's are hard enough to find, I figured it's entirely possible they don't even make them for this gun. Plus, since I never have looked into buying holsters, there's so many manufacturers and dealers it's a little overwhelming looking for any. Any thoughts or am I just being overly-cautious. I do plan on carrying quite a bit despite it being a .45 because I live in an area where there's plenty of drug users (especially meth users) and gang bangers, plus LEOs completely understand the desire and don't really hassle concealed carriers much at all so long as your doing what your suppose to. I just want to make sure I get a holster that enables me to do so without worrying about the gun having a lack of safety features...

For CCW check out the Galco King TUK, www.whitehatholsters.com, or http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/. They all have kydex outers and fully enclose the trigger.
