I have tried many.....the single clip holsters don't work for me and are uncomfortable and tend to move around abit....So couple of years ago got the Foxx Holster (Small of Back model) to use for appendix carry with my shield 9. Was so comfortable and stable I got a new one for my Shield 45. It spreads the weight nicely, is more stable and comfortable than any I have tried in the past. If you are right hand draw select the left hand draw small of the back and if you are left hand draw select the right hand small of the back....here is a photo of the rig......

Consider Alien Gear Cloak 3...IWB...I use it for my S&W9c which is larger then the shield...all day wear and very comfortable...as with any holster, a good belt is essential.

Been carrying for 47+ years. I have 3 Alien Gear iwb Holsters. By far the most comfortable I've ever owned.

Look closely at Garretts products. Leather lined Kydex. the best of both worlds and great customer service. Lots of style options. Here is a silent thunder that works AIWB or IWB. Not cheap, but worth it.

Was looking to ask about that. Which model is that?

Heard of GI looking at holsters for my Sig P320 but it didn't work for me as a carry so now trying a Shield 9.

Torn between the Silent Thunder GT and Slim because I don't know if I want a 4 oclock or AIWB yet. (They told me the GT can't go AIWB and Slim can't go anywhere other than AWIB.)
