IWB Holster for shield 9
New to the forum and to the shield. Just bought mine last week and was wondering what everyone's thoughts on holsters are. I plan on carrying between 3-5 o'clock inside the waistband and prefer a single belt clip. I was looking between the foxx holsters little fox and the comp tec infedel ultra max. I was also looking for a spare mag holder and saw a few on their websites. Was wondering if I should do IWB or not for the spare mag. Price is a little factor and I can get the little foxx for about $25 less. Here are the links. http://www.foxxholsters.com/collecti...-black-leather

"wondering what everyone's thoughts on holsters are."
My thoughts are, I prefer a 2 clip belt attachment because it keeps my gun in the same place, my single clip one moves too much. I have the Bianchi Model 135 that utilizes C-clips. It is not quite as easy to put on/take off as the single clip holsters are, but I usually just leave the holster on my belt when I remove my pistol. Plus the C-Clips are very discreet when worn on a black belt.
And for the spare mag carrier I use a Snagmag. It too is very discreet, looks like a knife clip in your pocket. It also keeps the mag up out of the bottom of your pocket and in the proper orientation for drawing and insertion into your pistol.

Thanks for the responses. I know two clips is ideal but one is more concealable and the removability is something I need. Love the look of the snagmag. If I can fit it that might be a must. Might be tight with my keys, phone, knife, and a multi tool. I love the small size of the kydex stingray but I was wondering how comfortable it is. I'm a bigger guy so I thought a hybrid might be better any thoughts? 6'3 275 38' waist. Yes I know I need to loose weight.

NSR Tactical C-1 minimalist holster.
All I use, works in any position, surprisingly comfortable, pretty easy on/off and the holster is not coming off your belt since it uses a loop with directional button. Worth the coin. If you want you can always take some moleskin and headliner spray and give it an impromptu wrap for a little more comfort.
I've run every static and dynamic shooting and weapon retention drill you could imagine wearing this thing, R O C K-S O L I D !
Do not trust clips, metal or plastic to keep your holster in place during a physical altercation! Just my two pennies.

I have an Onyx for my Shield and a mini for my 9C.
I am liking the Mini even more than the Onyx (which I love)

Congrats on your new shield. I have a few IWB holsters but now using this one for EDC. I'm in construction in Florida and it just works very well.

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

I use a Cry Havoc Gear Grim for my Shield. They just recently updated the design to the single clip and concealment wing. Mine has the single strut with belt loop. I actually like the holster as is but the improvements to the design have me thinking about picking up the new version.

The best kydex holster I ever had after spending hundreds of dollars on different holsters is the vedder light tuck. It allows one to adjust the ride height and cant with a screwdriver.
The best holster I have found for Belly band type carry has been the 3speed holster. I can wear running shorts and a tee shirt without printing a single stack 9.
