Default M&P Shield Holster Pics

Just received this today. I don't even own a Shield yet, but when I saw it, I knew this was the one. Im actually in the market for two Shields (one for the wife and one for myself). I was so impressed with it that I just ordered another. You guys may already be familiar with it, but is amazing in both quality and design. What jumped out at me was how minimalistic it was while still maintaining max comfort.

The holster is from "Latour Custom Holsters". You can find him on FB and the owners name is Al. He does all his business via email. I placed my order on Saturday and it was received today.

Here are the pics: Next to a can of dip to show the size. This has the combat cut that allows full purchase of the grip during the draw.

I bought a second one. He ships quick. Now all I need to do is find two Shields under the LE program.

Don't know what exactly you are looking for but a good friend of mine is selling a .40 shield for around $450-475. Don't know how much exactly or if he would be willing to ship via FFL, but if interested PM me.

I appreciate it fa35jsf, but I'm waiting for the 9 to get back in stock at my LE dealer.

Really nice holster. Of course, some of he width difference in that last picture has to do with the width difference in the two guns in question.

Nonetheless, really nice holster. I'm assuming he does other models? M&P9c? Snubbie revolvers?

You are exactly right. The other thing I like about it is the size of leather backing. It's large enough to maintain comfort, but small enough that you can position AIWB with no problem. He also does a two clip version for those that prefer a wider leather backing.

Yes on your question about other weapons. Pretty sure I saw a holster for a snub revolver on his FB page.

Yeah after I posted that I had the bright idea of actually going to his Facebook page. He has lots of pics up, and yes I saw a snubbie wheel gun. Looks like he does excellent work, and fairly reasonable prices.

I didn't see anything about a warranty. I know he's a small business but I wonder if he does repairs or that sort of thing?
