Default Shield holster

Hey guys, I was just wondering if any of you could give me some advice on a holster for my shield. I currently have a desantis leather iwb, but it feels rather bulky, and isn't the most comfortable.

A Galco deep concealment holster works well for me with the Shield.

I have a Old Faithful IWB holster for my M&P 9c and love it. I just recently acquired a Shield for my wife and am planning on getting one for her as well. It is much like the Crossbreed type of holster only at half the cost. Got it partially constructed and finished it myself for $40 total. They send you all the hardware + extras. I forget I have it on when I am wearing it with my 9c.

That sounds awesome to me, I'll check it out. I have been eyeing crossbreed type holsters but never wanted to drop that kind of money on a holster while I'm looking at purchasing another firearm

I have a gun show molded Kydex IWB that fits like a charm, is comfortable all day long and only cost $35.00.

I have a 9mm shield and use an IWB from n82tactical.com. I have tried several IWB holsters and this is the one I use every day. It is so comfortable I can wear it all day and almost forget it is there. None of the gun touches bare skin.

I use the alien tactical iwb, also can order a custom for a laser if installed. I have the crimson trace laser and the shell is designed to accept it perfectly

I use this:

I mostly carry at about 5 o'clock, but I also use it for occasional appendix carry as well.

I think I'll be ordering an alien holster, I've looked into it, and I also feel as though I will be getting a laser on the gun aswell, so that seems like a very good and cheap option. Thank you all for the recommendations, they all seemed like great options, making my decision even harder

Triple T holsters are made with medical grade leather on the skin side with the backside of the fasteners sandwiched between the layers of leather. As far as I know, other holster makers leave the back of screws on the inside which aren't smooth and in some cases rust.
There website isn't fancy but I love their double clip IWB at $70.00
Other holsters are cheaper but you get what you pay for.
