    Thumbs up Who needs IWB !!!

    Got my DM Bullard Bodyguard holster for my S&W Shield today. This holster is great. I can't imagine why I would ever use an IWB for this or my 1911. They hold nice and tight to my waist and conceal great under a t-shirt(well, the shield does). way more comfortable than any IWB I've tried. And by the way, I called Bullard on Monday to see if they had any Bodyguards for my Shield, and I got it today !!

    You do mean "who" right?

    That's cool an OWB holster can be the best of an IWB holster! I have one of those myself. One and only. I'm a jeans and t-shirt guy myself. I can relate.

    Please don't apologize for being over 50. My God man.....I'm staring that in the face and I need to rely on those who have been there! I guess the computer thing I could understand. I never figured I would be where I am now with all that BS myself. But without it....I'd be lost.

    i guessed that it has an extream rake and works for a short barreled gun.
    went to the site and they do look very nicely made.

    decades of 'for-sure' concealed IWB is how i'll stay. murohy lives through little kids that look up under our jackets and tell mommie
    ''that man has a gun'' just loud enough for everyone to hear.

    but it works for you and thats important.
    enjoy...and please pass us a report on the shield.
    it seems to be a very liked gun.

    Welcome to the joy that is OWB carry. I only carry IWB when I need to not be noticed at all. For normal carry, OWB beltslide or something similar for me.
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    I wish I was only 50!

    Heck, 50 is more than a decade in the rear view mirror! I thank God daily for being able to hang around younger folks whose ideas and physical abilities challenge mine.

    Often folk who carry larger sidearms.

    Hey sgb, I also carry a 1911 gov model in the same holster and it works great as well, just to darn heavy for EDC.
