Thank you all for the warm welcome. To carry comfortably means to have a comfortable holster, I believe I have found that in a holster from Hawg Holsters made by a Veteran and he is very detail oriented and his customer service cannot be beat. I think it is a one man shop from what I can tell. I am not related to him, have not met the man but bought a holster after reading about them but forgot to tell him I had EZ Rack pads on the slide(to help me rack the slide since the spring in the Shield is very strong) so had to have the holster made slightly different from the regular one that is for the 9mm Shield. The owner of the Hawg Holsters made a new one with room for the EZ Rack Pads and it is PERFECT. It is light, the clip on it is can be canted in different degrees for your comfort. I hardly know I have it on. To those who relate me to the story of the old lady stopped by the cop and has multiple guns in the car......, I think I am that woman. I encourage other women to be prepared and from my point of view, carrying in a purse is better than nothing but carry the purse across your body, I would fear two things, the perp could pull you to the ground with just pulling on the purse strap but will not get your gun, where if you carry your purse in hand or on your shoulder, the perp only need to yank it and they have your gun so not the place you want to be. I wear slacks most times, so I carry IWB and OWB. The Hawg Holster is a IWB holster. The guy who makes them is a Veteran which makes me even more want to buy from him. I too am a veteran but of the Vietnam War era. I mentioned the EZ Rack pads, they are sort of sticky and spongy pads that go on the back of the slide to make it easier to rack the slide which was very difficult for me due to the spring being so tight on the Shield. The EZ Rack seems to help a lot, so suggest to my female friends who carry to use them if they have any problems racking the slide of the semiautomatic guns.
