Shield accessories recommendations

I just bought a shield 2.0 9mm. What IWB and OWB holsters do you peeps use for this pistol under $50? (I am cheap. Cue next question) Has anyone used Promag magazines?

I like this pistol so far. If, in the future, I really like it then I will look into action enhancement. Any recommendations?

Please don't buy ProMags. It's not a question of them being just a little less durable. They don't work. They're expensive paperweights.

+1 on Tunnelrats comment. No need to not buy S&W Factory mags. They’re not cost prohibitive at all. Google is your friend.

Omni holster. Works as IWB and OWB.

A case of 9x19 and lots of range time.

OWB = DeSantis Speed Scabbard, probably cheapest on Amazon, but probably not < $50
OWB = Stealth Gear Revolution, ~$35.

Magazines = Best price I've seen is here: https://www.sportsmansoutdoorsuperstore.com/ Magazines for the 2.0 are currently $25.99, but I know that they run sales on the 1.0 mags from time to time for $15.99. I don't know if they do that for 2.0s, or if the mags interchange. I have a 1.0, so haven't needed to know yet.

Ammo: https://www.sgammo.com/ or https://www.targetsportsusa.com/

I think everyone has to discover this for themselves.

Pocket holster, DeSantis Nemesis. $20-ish. If you're going to go that route.

I like the Vanguard 2 a lot for appendix carry. It's very minimal and adds no width, and it retains the pistol really well. I think it's around $35.

I'd stick to factory mags on a carry gun.

Every promag I ever bought when I first got into guns was a pos. Especially for the Remington 597 22lr. Even the real Remington extended mags Don’t work. Idk how they have been selling them for so long and they never work.
