Reader question: I just bought an 9mm M&P shield and love it. I’d like to find an inside the waistband holster for it. What is the best IWB holster for shield 9mm pistols in 2023? Any reviews or thoughts?
The M&P Shield is Smith & Wesson’s latest innovative addition to its product line. The pistol provides users with advanced features for clear-cut operation and highly dependable performance.
Smith & Wesson’s M&P Shield comes in 9mm and .40 S&W with a standard 3.1-inch barrel, a 5.3-inch sight radius, and a short, reliable trigger pull which make for a smooth and quick target acquisition.
And there’s the amazing quick and audible reset that allows a shooter to place multiple rounds accurately and steadily on target.
The handgun is easily concealable and relatively lightweight due to its high-quality polymer construction, with tough, rust-proofing finish, and stainless-steel coated slide and barrel.
This compact build makes it easy to find an IWB even for the most picky gun owner.
Precision Holsters Smith & Wesson M&P SHIELD IWB Holster
Precision Holsters’ M&P Shield IWB holster projects a slim and small profile, yet it features the ultimate in concealed carry, comfort, durability and reliable performance.
It is fully designed to be sported in whatever position on the waist, from the traditional strong side to the small of the back carry.
Each shield IWB holster provides a precision-molded shell to fit your gun like a glove and hug your body’s contours comfortably.
It also has adjustable ride height and cant (through the 4-hole metal belt clips that fit 1 ½-inch belts), and an adjustable draw tension which affords the user to personalize the holster to his preference.
It comes in color black with a right-hand orientation, and a Lifetime Warranty with a “Satisfaction Guaranteed or Your Money Back” clause.
The product sells for around $60 – certainly a fair price to pay for a premium quality holster.

The Desantis Cozy Partner holster has a minimalist design to it but coupled with its tan color and single-piece construction of top-quality leather, it sure looks amazing.

The Cozy Partner features an adjustable tension device and precision molded casing for best retention results. And it is available in tan and right-hand orientation.
Not only is it comfortable but it’s durably constructed, too, with nicely finished edges that hug your body smoothly.
From a veteran holster maker, you get more than your money’s worth (the price is pegged below $50).
Galco Triton Kydex IWB Holster for S&W M&P Compact 9/40
Designed for durability and made of tough Kydex, Galco’s Triton Kydex IWB Holster for S&W M&P Compact 9/40 is pretty small, thin, easy to conceal, and well-nigh maintenance free. This concealed carry unit works as a Smith and Weston Shield 9mm holster and for .40s, as well.
It features a raised sweat guard to protect both user and gun from possible harsh contact with the slide serrations and corrosive sweat, respectively.
It has a single metal belt clip that provides quick fastening and unfastening, which is positioned in a slightly forward cant to allow a smooth draw and re-holstering.
The Triton also has two neoprene bushings just under the barrel which allow you to adjust the tension to keep the gun securely in place.
