Opinions Please - IWB Holster Ideas for M&P Shield

I recently acquired a S&W M&P Shield 9mm. Just wanting some suggestions for IWB holsters...so far, I've heard that the SuperTuck might be the best way to go. Just for an idea, I'm an average height (5'5") average build female.

I've seen lots of reviews, watched lots of videos, but just thought I'd check here and see if any of you could help point me in a good direction.


Thanks in advance!

Mini Tuck might be better

I have both. My wife likes using the mini tuck for a similar sized Kel Tec p-11. Mini Tuck seems to fit her better. She's average build as well. Be sure to get horse hide and j hooks though. The metal hooks tend to cut untucked shirts when sitting.

Thanks for the input. I ordered the MiniTuck...horsehide and j clips...today. I definitely can see where the mini will most likely fit better. Thank you so much for the help.

best holster

I too have a supertuck. It is maybe the most comfortable and most concealable holster I own.

However, my sticky holster is the one I use day to day. It is fast and holds great.

If I am going out for the day, then superT it is. But if we are just going out to eat or buy groceries, the sticky is as quick as picking up my keys.

both are good, I am sure some others are as well.

A Custom Carry Concepts Quick Cover or Tac-1 are nice inexpensive choices. If you want to try an economy leather holster NM-Holsters are reasonably priced. At the other end of the scale the TT-Gunleather Mikes Special is a work of art.

Milt Sparks IWB holsters are very comfortable and conceal firearms very well.

Priced right for a custom holster and worth the wait !

If you're into S&W pistols, the above is a good forum. May have to join to view the thread I linked.

I like the crossbreed style. I have a White Hat holster. It's really dependent on individual factors. Body type, clothing, car, job and such.
