Questions on carry with .45 Shield
I just picked up my new Shield in .45 and have a question on those carrying concealed IWB.
Do you prefer the 6 or 7 round mag and do either or both seem to carry fine without printing?
Also if you do not mind stating where you carry IWB as well.
Thanks in advance!
1, 2, 3 go!

I carry my 45 Shield with a six round mag in the pistol, and two seven round reloads.
I carry OWB at 3:00 with a Panther Concealment kydex holster.

i'm new to carrying the shield 45 also. I use the 7 round mag because my small finger hangs off the bottom of the longer mag less and is more comfortable. that may be a factor in your decision. I am carrying iwb with a slight cant forward between 2:00 and 3:00 I wear shorts and tee shirts with no overly obvious printing. with jeans and a pull over collar shirt sometimes tucked, it's even less obvious.
hope this helps.

I carry with the 6 round in the gun and a 7 round in a Stealthgear Ventcore single magazine holder. The magazine holder is at roughly 8:30 and the Shield in a Priority 1 Holsters IWB holster at roughly 3:30.

I have 9mm Shield but, I run the 7 round mag with a pinky extension in the gun and then two 8 rounders in mag pouches on my off side... Holster is either a Crossbreed Supertuck or a CYA IWB kydex holster.

I have no problem when I carry my M&P M2.0 in my Concealment Express IWB holster at the 3:00 position so when I carry my 45 Shield I carry with 7+1 and again with a IWB Concealment Express holster at 3:00.

Sold all the 6 rd mags.
Only use with 7+1
I am OWB at 3-4 depending on pants Im wearing.
No issue with print and not concerned with it as it matters not in TX if it does.
