Holster recommendations

My daily carry firearm is a S&W MP Shield in 9mm. I have been using an Uncle Mike's inside the waist holster. I like it fine but don't love it and am in need of a new one and thought I'd look for other options

My S&W Shield 9mm is my second choice for a SD arm, however, my FIRST choice for a holster is a Blackhawk Serpa!
The Serpa holds tight to the body, and conceals very well for that reason alone under an untucked shirt, or, especially in cooler weather, under a sweatshirt.

Great, secure holster. Would have been my first choice for my p365 but they dont make it for that one. (Got the Sneaky Pete for the Sig, and not once has anyone given it a second look. Drawback? Serpa is MUCH faster)

Thanks for the input. I'll look into the various brands mentioned. I heard of the sneaky peete before, looks like a fanny pack, right? I'll check out the other ones as well.

I have a few alien gear in the waist holsters and like them a lot (Original and 2 Cloak Tuck 3.0's). Very comfortable and affordable. I looked pretty hard at the shape shift, but in the end it didn't fit my needs. I also have a Serpa holster for my 1911. I don't use it for CC, but I do use it when I'm hunting or working my lease. The gun is very secure and it's also a very comfortable holster. IMHO, the Alien Gear holsters are better for concealment, but the Serpa is more comfortable and secure.

There are many good ones out there. Some are much more than others but you usually get what you pay for.

Take look at Vetter. Pricey but quality.

I have a box of holsters I've used over the years...
Most comfortable after break-in? Milt Sparks, hands down... BUT it didn't have the service life to justify the cost....
Galco proved durable, but took much longer to break in and get comfortable...
Aliengear was tried on a whim, and I was quite impressed. I have 4 now and wearing one right now.. Their mounting systems are great too. Their paddles leave a bit to be desired, but are great for yard or range use... their IWBs are awesome.
IMHO, best bang for the buck out there.

For OWB carry (field or winter use) I tend to stick with Galco, especially for the full sized pistols or revolvers.
