Fits great and I will likely be ordering a second one as my wife really likes it too. Conceals great. Regarding the belt, just ask Paul for his opinion before you order. There's great communication and he customizes if you desire. You'll be very pleased with the PJHolster.
Do you have a picture of the deep concealment holster? That's what I'm looking for.

I have a kydex OTW holster from coffmanconcealment.com
The holster is almost weightless, hugs the body, retains the Shield perfectly and releases the pistol with just the right amount of pull.
I have been wearing the holster for about a week and find it to be comfortable over an 8 hour period. There is almost a complete absence of printing with the holster worn at about 2 o'clock. Highly recommended.

@Scriz: How do you like you Theis holster? I have one for my Glock 26 and it is very comfortable.

I like the idea of the sticky holster but I would prefer to have some hard kydex molding to allow for quick holstering (prevent collapsing).

You can order a reinforced top in Remora Holsters (similar to a sticky holster). Frankly, the only point I would see in using this style (since it diminishes the comfort-factor inherent in this type of IWB holster) is for live-fire practice that requires re-holstering. Defensive carry really doesn't have a rapid re-holster requirement.

Remora is having a 25% off New Years sale. (I am not affiliated with this company, just love their products) https://www.remoraholsterstore.com/S...s.asp?Cat=1814

Thumbs up

I carry the N82 Tactical daily and love it. I wear it with shorts and a t-shirt, jeans, you name it. It's lightweight, not hard to holster, but most of al comfortable. Other holsters I tried, leather and kydex, exacerbated my back problems but this one never does. I'm a camper.



For those who just love tupperwear they also have the Pro model

Al LaTour custom holsters in carbon fiber Holstex, both comfort cut hybrid and combat cut one piece, although it has the adjustable belt loop too so it's not really one piece. There's also his new Shield mag holder. Click image for link to his Facebook page, no website yet.

I've been carrying the one piece a lot and like it, haven't tried the hybrid much. My one complaint is that retention is so stiff it's worn smooth the section of trigger guard that it passes over on it's way in and out, in less than a week.

Mag holder is nice and tight, while small and unobtrusive, but not active retension. Makes me want to get one for my compact and FS mags.

One piece was $55 + $12 shipping
Hybrid was $65 + shipping
Mag Holder was $28 + Shipping

The holster is very comfortable (.06"), has secure retention, and a great value and lead time for a custom kydex holster and mag carrier.

And another recommendation for PJHolster. I got my first one for my Shield, my next one for my M&P 9 and another to fit any of my numerous 1911s.

Don Hume IWB for 40c and for a Sig 228 both work well. Here is a picture of the Sig 228 holster with my Shield in it The 40c holster fits a little better but I don't have a picture of it.

Hey, just got my new Crossbreed Apendix holster for my shield w/ lasermax! Check it out, feels great so far. This was the cowhide version (not horsehide). Made with very good quality materials and comes with very good retention. Also, this took me a month to get (typical turnaround time) so keep that in mind when ordering. They have great customer service and it's guaranteed for life!

Thanks

I use the Bucksholsters.com Pro Tuck as well as the Sticky Holster. The Sticky is new and a bit snug... The Bucks is pretty much the same as Crossbreed. It's a local company in Central Florida where I live.

CrossBreed QwikClip for the Shield -- gun disappears at just past 3 o'clock. Butt tight to the body, good retention but quick draw. Great re-holstering, and super-comfortable to carry. I'm going to experiment with crossdraw cant and inguinal carry, but it carries so naturally just behind the hip, it will take a really great experience to get me to change. I also have a CompTac Minotaur Neutral Cant with a kydex molded for the full size M&P that I want to try with a kydex molded for the Shield. The Minotaur carries tthe Full-size so nicely, I have to believe that it will carry the Shield even better.

Has anyone used the PistolWear Trump Card for warm weather carry? (I know, it's the wrong time of the year to be asking -- but maybe someone from Florida or someplace warm has tried it.).

I recommend Theis Holsters. Theisholsters.com | Custom IWB Holsters

Super comfortable and great retention. Also unlike most custom holsters on the market, I got mine in a week of ordering.

Mine is the horsehide version, he also makes cowhide.

Love the look of these. Now that it has been a few weeks since you posted, still like the feel of the one piece holster? I am thinking about ordering my own. Where on the clock do you carry? Have you tried that holster AIWB?

mungenr: I have a Theis holster for my Glock 26. The metal clips squeek. Does yours do the same for the S&W?

it squeaked when it was rubbing against the leather. I took some electrical tape and taped it to the back of the clip and it's silent now.

It also creaked when the gun was in the holster when new, took some baby powder, rubbed in the leather where the gun would touch then wiped it clean. The holster has been quite ever since.

Holsters are a very personal thing. Most people don't really know what they want...that's why I have a box full of holsters in my closet. However, most folks can tell what they DON'T like real quick. I'm not saying that this is the best in the world, but it hasn't made it to the closet box yet!!

I like the Blackhawk Model #28 Askins Compact Concealment holster. It holds the pistol high and close to the body for concealed carry and very convenient for open carry. It is really nice Italian leather and runs about $50-$60 depending on where you purchase or order from. I even saw some for $42 on Amazon.

Check it out below:

I posted earlier about my FoxX Holsters. Here's a pic. Dig these IWB holsters big time. On the right is the Little FoxX for my M&P FS 9mm and on the left is my Shield holstered in the FoxX Trapp. Like I said...great product, great price, and great customer service.
