I have had my Shield for about 2 months and when I bought it I ordered two holsters a Fobus PPS Paddle holster and a Desantis Scabbard w/Thumb Break. The Desantis was on backorder and so I began using the Fobus. Awesome holster hands down, flexible with clothing and comfort to match. Well today I am pleased to announce the Desantis arrived, really excited from the reviews of this holster. Initial impressions, this is a top quality leather holster with a retention screw. I checked fitment and put it on my belt. It holds nice and snug against my body in a very concealing manner. The thumb break is very user friendly and reholstering is a one hand operation as the holster is molded to the gun. It is a 3 hole allowing me to choose between two levels of cant for comfort and concealment.
I will test this new Desantis holster over the weekend and report back on my field experience. I paid $52.99 for it on Amazon.

Pretty sweet looking! Not a bad price either. Do you know the angle of cant on it?
If you are ever in need of IWB check out SHTF Gear holsters.
If you're ever interested in IWB, check out Theis Holsters. Works great with my Shield. OWB, still experimenting.

I've had it on now for about 12 hours. I must say, I'm in love. The exterior is buffed smooth and shiny leather. My coat and other clothing glides right over it and does not get hung up or caught. It is tight to my body, I can't stress enough how concealable this holster is. Also forgot to mention it rides high too, love that. The two cant settings are Zero and I believe 25*, not sure on the second one but as a machinist I'll bet that's pretty close.
Like I said in my first post I also carry a Fobus Paddle and love that too.
i have a owb holster for my shield with good forward cant degree, it conceals very well and rides high. I really want to sell it and buy a solid leather holster.. if anyone is interested

more to come..
I have been trying to find a comfy holster for my shield. I have a DeSantis IWB right now and am no crazy about its comfort. I wear my shirts untucked so I'm thinking that maybe I'm more of a OWB guy. For work I am sitting in a car a lot and don't want to take the gun in and out of the holster when I'm getting out for gas, the bathroom or to see a customer.
Thoughts and ideas?
I dig my FoxX Trapp IWB holster made in Detroit. Great product, great quality, and great customer service. I'm wearing it right now and don't even know it's there. Here's a pic. Shield is on the left in the FoxX Trapp. M&P FS 9mm on the right in the Little FoxX

Don't let the high post count fool you...I'm just part of the welcoming committee.
I'm interested in the N82 brand of holsters for my Shield. Is anyone carrying a Shield in one of these currently?
