Because of the heat down here I did put some felt on my skin side and now I don't even know its there.

Enjoy your new 9

Just purchased a Little Foxx hybrid for my Shield. Was between it and the n82 professional series but based on price and equally positive reviews I chose the Foxx.

If leather it's a Stoner 415
with Body Shield.

Other than that holster I have a Remora or Sticky holster.

I don't like Kydex but we have a Kydex for 3 of our Glocks plus leather, Sticky and Remora Holsters.

I don't have a shield pistol, but carry a Taurus 111 in an alienware holster IWB and no one has ever noticed it. I can access it quickly and draw it smoothly.

I was a little late to the Shield party, waiting for the no manual safety model to come out. Since then it and my M&P 340 have been my CCWs. I started with a Foxx Holster for the Shield. I recently switched to to a Horsehide Crossbreed mini-tuck. Though there is nothing at all wrong with the Foxx, you can truly tell where the extra money went with Crossbreed. The quality of the leather, kydex molding, and clips is very noticeable.

I have a Stealthgear Onyx for my P2000Sk and a Mini for my PC Shield 9. Depending on the pants I'm wearing I also carry my Shield in a Sticky holster in my right cargo pocket and a dual mag pouch in the left. I spend a lot of time doing confined space entry and rolling around in very very tight crawlspaces looking at framing and the Shield in the Mini is surprisingly unobtrusive.

I was using a Crossbreed mini but felt it was too thick with the leather backing. I switched to Raven. It feels better.

It won't matter what everyone else tells you is comfortable and concealable. You will simply have to choose wisely and see if what you chose works or not. Take that knowledge and apply it to the next holster you buy. Since you are a bigger guy, like me, wearing inside your pants is going to cause you more discomfort particularly when sitting and squatting. Larger size pants will almost 100% be necessary to accommodate the weapon and holster.

No one else has your exact body type and needs for concealment. You may go through several holsters until you get what you like. I started carrying IWB many years ago and carried that way for several years. My favorite holster then was a Comp-Tac Minotaur Hybrid because it had almost infinite adjustability for carry height and forward cant. It could also be worn OWB if needed.

I later found that carrying OWB in a nice well built leather holster is what I really wanted and found it the best solution for me. Easier to remove and much more comfortable to wear all day.

Study the options people have given you, look at your needs and just pick the best you can and see if it works.

IWB Holster for Shield

I use either a Vedder IWB or a G Code IWB for several pistols. Both are well made and adjustable for cant as I carry in the 1 to 2 o`clock appendix carry. Both have retention adjustment screws.

The G Code is also adjustable for carry height and the Kydex has a flocking applied to it for more comfort.

I prefer the Kydex holsters for ease of reholstering, the single clips make it easy to remove if I am going to exit the truck and enter a "gun safe" zone like the Post Office.

I went thru the same phase... now i only wear a high quality leather OWB.
Buying the right holster is by far harder than buying the right gun.
One thing they both share, its gotta fit you right and be comfy.

After using several IWB holsters for my other pistols,I was told by a friend to try the "Sticky" holster. I absolutely love it especially for the two Shields that I have.There are no clips to contend with and you can position it anyway or anywhere you want.Very comfortable,cheap in price and it works.For the 9mm and my 45 acp. Shield,it calls for the MD-4. I have a few friends that have the Sticky on their Christmas list after trying mine.

Same here, with the backing you can hardly tell it's there.

I have a drawer full of holsters and not until I got my N82 did I find one I liked.
They make three different types but the thing I like is the backing that covers the whole gun. That way the gun it self never touches the skin and that ,in FLORIDA, makes a big difference
I've been warring this one for almost 2 years and it is still in good shape and the most comfortable I have..

Their website pictures leave me scratching my head as to how that "concealment wing" works.
