Was looking for a carry holster for a s&w sheild and after reading reviews on the blackhawk sherpa line and discharges I think i want something else. I have one blackhawk and it will get put in storage. I want a retention holster as ive had my xd pop loose while riding in my side bx side on the line.

What does everyone prefer?

Safari land holsters caught my eye but i didn't see an iwb durring my search. Would like both iwb and an owb eventually.

I carry a Kimber Ultra Covert 45 ACP. I've used a lot of different holsters. I carry on my hip under a shirt or jacket. I've gone through quite a few holsters that I just didn't like for one reason or another. However, this Bainchi retention holster has become my favorite. It's easy to draw, retains very well and is small. It's also leather so it's comfortable. They make this same holster for many different models of handgun, you'll have to see if they make one that fits yours if your interested. Here's the one I use. Again, as far as retention holsters go, it's the best I have found.

What caliber? FYI the .45 is a tad bigger then the rest.

Do not get a Sticky. Had my shield come out while on the ground during an altercation.
I have an IWB that is made locally and the retention is incredible. I believe I have a crossbreed OWB that is awesome. It is my range day holster as it is easier to draw.

I have a DeSantis belt type for work the choices were limited on the .45 Shields but this one had a retention snap on it. I like a paddle holster when off duty easy on off and stays on when the paddle is in the pants. I tried my Sig 220 holster but it kept releasing the mag on it's own.

If Safariland made a leather paddle holster like the one I have for my Sig I'd have that, maybe they make one for the .45 now.

I really like the crossbreed holster for my sig 938. Comfortable and never a chance of it going anywhere while I'm carrying it.

I still have not found the right holster for my S&W 38 spl Revolver. The best so far is in the pocket in a holster.

For my shield 9 mm, I have a tipster holster. You can set the retention to your liking. Great lightweight holster.
