I've never cared for paddle holsters. Among other things, they don't seem to hold the gun in closely enough to the body for good concealment.
My experience as well. Paddles holsters, while good in theory, don't seem to execute as well as a good belt holster.
Speaking of belts, a good leather gun belt is just as important, or more important, than your holster. Keep in mind that the belt supports both the gun and holster.
