Can anyone give suggestions for a "quiet" IWB wear it all day holster?

Trying to get away from the sound many make when coming out.

If you're talking about the sound Kydex makes, get something without Kydex. Ther are literally hundreds of craftsmen building good quality leather IWB holsters.

Yes KRWeiss, silent draw and leather lined to help protect the finish on the Shield.

Thanks for posting this BigTexan, looks good, still researching

I use the Galco King Tuck. It works great and it also fits my full size MP40 and 357sig.

I've narrowed my search down to the PJ IWB. For you guys that bought them, I'm wondering if you specified a custom cant angle or if the "default" angle is working just fine? (this will be my first concealed carry pistol)

Also, not all of my belts are 1.5" wide. I see on the order form that is the minimum width. Will that be a problem if my belts are only a little over an inch in width?

Thanks!

Just picked up the FoxX Trapp for my Shield 9mm (Little FoxX for my FS 9). Should be here in the next day or two. I'll let you all know, but couldn't be quality, price and customer service. Outstanding!

Shouldn't be. One of my favorite belts is 1 3/4" wide, so I buy 1 3/4" holsters even if I only plan to where them with 1 1/2" or smaller belts.

I've used a couple of the holsters listed and some other, list fist holster (previous favorite), Galco, Raven, Comptac etc.

My current fav is also the cheapest holster I've ever bought.
Sticky Holsters - Redefining Concealment

My Shield fits perfect in it with or without laser and I carried it (IWB) during a 2600 mile motorcycle adventure/tour through Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and hiked with it into the Grand Canyon, in the last 2 weeks of this past September.

Only time I even used a belt was during the hike.
Not meant for training classes where you will draw and re-holster repeatedly, but man is it comfortable.

These do look interesting. I was thinking about getting one as a pocket holster and try it for an IWB, and if it worked well, just stick with it.

I ordered the deep concealment option with a 30-degree cant (it is the same as in the Falia Photography review holster and the one in the banner image on his website home page). Very pleased with it. 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.
