    Holster Recommendation for the S&W M&P Shield

    Hello. My mother is looking for an OWB holster for her new Shield, and is a bit overwhelmed by the vast array of holsters out there. She already has a good IWB for EDC, but wants an OWB for going to the range that she can also put in her purse.

    Her criteria are,
    • Fits the Shield and can be put in her carry purse
    • Made of leather, preferably in America
    • Inexpensive--she doesn't want to pay much more than $30, including shipping
    • Optional: strap to hold it in

    Anyone got any recommendations for her?

    Oops, missed the leather requirement... still worth having her look at.

    I doubt you can find a real leather anything for about $30.00.

    I struggle with why people want a "range holster" when you cc. I always shoot the way I'd have to if required in an emergency. That extra range repitition adds up.

    I have range holsters for my "extra" guns because those aren't what I'm going to in a pinch. I lolly gag with those guns. Never with my edc.

    I will echo the comment that $30 isn't a realistic budget for a leather OWB holster. That said, there are some 'cheap' options available that might meet her criteria:
    E-GAT Slide ? DeSantis Holster
    Amazon.com: Black Leather Beltslide Gun Holster for Smith and Wesson M&P Shield 9mm: Sports & Outdoors

    You get what you pay for, so I'd recommend she save another $30 - $40 so she can buy a quality leather holster. When you pay for quality, you only cry once.

    Why does she want to put an OWB holster in her carry purse?

    Cue "Woman Logic" meme, LOL (no offense anyone!). I really don't know. Those two MrsHB suggested look like what I think she had in mind. Thank you, everyone. I'll pass on your advice and recommendations.
