Firstly welcome Second if you possibly can dump the off body hand bag type carry. Very easy to lose your gun that way or not have it in reach when you need it.
There are a ton of holsters out there. My wife and I both carry in a simple single clip soft suede Bianchi. She OWB and myself either IWB or OWB depending on weather. . She a SR9 me a SW9VE though I have carried SW40VE and a P945 in the same holster. And a SR9c also.
That said I plan to get her a N squared iwb for her SR9 or get her an SR9c and carry the SR9 myself. Though ill still use the same holster I do now.
Just look around ask questions. Alien Gear seems to be pretty popular. Crossbreed supertuck, etc.
I would avoid small of the back carry though. Fall on your back or get knocked on your back and a gun back there can easily damage your spine.
Ton of folks here with alot of knowledge that will chime in im sure. Again Welcome to DC.

Welcome aboard. My wife likes the Lady FIST holster and the Tommy Gun fannypack. Be safe.

Welcome from Wisconsin! You'll eventually hit on a good carry method. It'll take a bit of experimentation.

Welcome from Virginia.
I've found for me the 3:30-4:00 carry position works best, whether IWB or OWB. Tried SOB for a while and gave it up for several reasons. The potential of spinal injuries from a fall, the discomfort of carry when driving and the blind sweep on the draw.
