    Inexpensive Holster Suggestions for an M&P Shield?

    FINALLY my wife's Shield 9mm came in yesterday! I never thought this day would come after almost a year on the waiting list it finally came in!

    So now we're looking for a holster. We currently have the Remora 6-ART w/horsehide leather liner which is used for my M&P 40c but according to Remora's holster fitment chart the 6-ART is the size that fits the Shield. It works out well but seems a little big but will do the job. But now we want to get a nice inexpensive IWB holster for her as well in addition to the Remora. Any suggestions please? We'd like to keep it around $40.

    Thanks for the help.

    I use an Ozarks Holster Company IWB for my XDs .45. $45, horsehide, lifetime warranty, and great customer service.

    Congrats on the Shield, my wife loves hers!

    Wow that's a great priceand looks to be good quality too! Thanks! I love my CrossBreed SuperTuck w/ Horsehide for my M&P 40c so I really like the fact that they use Horsehide as a standard option! The horsehide is so soft and comfortable.

    Some other holsters we were considering were FoxX, Theis, White Hat, and Crossbreed. I've never heard of Ozarks but looks good to me especially at that price point!

    I have a White Hat MaxTuck that I carry my Sig P220 in. Also a great holster but cost me double what the Ozark did. The quality is equal on the two.

    Galco king-tuk and n82 tactical are good holsters and are inexpensive and good quality.

    I'm finding that "inexpensive and good quality" do not necessarily go hand in hand. If I would have taken the money for two or three inexpensive holsters I could have had a quality holster. Now I have 2-3 that I don't use and one I do :(
    Just my .02

    I suggest that you watch the following video BEFORE buying anything. There is a very good chance that a holster is not the right way to go for many women.

    Dont get me wrong; A holster might be the best way to carry, (I think it is), BUT if your wife wont use it, its probably not the way to go.

    I've got a crossbreed for my glock 19 and a theis for my shield. I like my crossbreed more, better clips and construction in my opinion.

    That's a good deal too. How is the cowhide though as opposed to the horsehide? I've never worn the cowhide leather.

    Thanks

    What does your wife carry her Shield in?

    I am carrying my Shield in an Ozarks Holster Company hybrid right now. It's one of the best values I've found and works great with jeans or khakis.

    Like any holster, she needs to wear it for a few weeks and let it conform to her shape before deciding whether it's going to work for her or not.

    Usually her purse.

    She has a White Hat minituck but doesn't really want to 'dress around the gun' so it doesn't get much use.

    OK, I don't want so sound lascivious, but 'what is she wearing'. :D

    If you give me some ideas, I can tell you what we do. But it depends on the situation. The Shield at 19oz unloaded is very light, but it gets up to about 24-ish loaded with the mag in.

    You have to be extra careful if you carry in a purse, because:
    1. It's hard to get the firearm deployed - get one with a holster pocket
    2. If she forgets and leaves it on a chair, in a shopping cart or off her body, it can get lifted. It's extremely easy and -some- women can be a bit cavalier with their handbags.

    You can wear loose clothing and still conceal in various ways. I was looking closely at the pistolwear trumpcard for future purchase. It's meant for jogging but is also fantastic (I hear) for underarm carry, pointed downwards.

    I have both a Remora and an standard hybrid IWB holster for my Shield.

    I got one from Old Faithful Holsters. Had to put it together myself, but it's a good holster for $40. Took about 3 weeks to be delivered.
