For the last three years I've been carrying my M&P Shield 9mm in a Nate Squared Professional holster in the AIWB position.

I'm adding the Crimson Trace LaserGuard to my firearm and N82 doesn't make my holster for that configuration.

So, I'm looking for suggestions for an alternative.

I like the N82 because it's slim, very comfortable, quick on the draw, tuckable, and has good firearm retention.

here's the one I'm using now.
Professional S&W M&P Shield | N82 Tactical

It looks bulky in the pic but it's very comfortable and I've never been called out on its presence, even by family members who see me often.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a holster that would meet all of these criteria and will fit the CT LG?

thanks

How much can you put in your signature before it becomes too long??

Have you tried calling them?  I ran into that problem when I got my mother a XDs 9mm with a laser.  That specific option wasn't listed on their website, but when I called them, the woman that answered asked me for make and model, said something i won't repeat about modern technology, and then told me to order the one she uses for a diff model, it worked perfectly.

 

Other than that I don't have much to offerin way of replacements :no: , I carry a pro from n82 for my 1911, comfiest thing ever.

Vedder holsters LightTuck.  Very adjustable (ride height & cant).

Reasonably priced & fast delivery.

 

LightTuck_Zero_Cant_Middle_Hole__15534.1

If you are really using the CrimsonTrace LaserGuard (your link was to a different device) they have it on the drop down list with the 9mm Shield.

 

I've got a couple now and have been very pleased with them.  Extremely comfortable if you AIWB. 

 

Best of luck in your search.

 

Respectfully,

Huh...

I originally posted that on the S&W forums and just copied the content to this thread. Apparently the S&W forum automatically puts those links in. I didn't do that.

Check out Stealth Gear USA. They cost a bit more, but are very well made and very comfortable. I have several for different guns and particularly like the appendix version, which I wear at 4:00.

I've been rocking the bravo Concealment owb holster and loving it Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
Stung by the result of McDonald v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 3020 (2010), the City quickly enacted an ordinance that was too clever by half. Recognizing that a complete gun ban would no longer survive Supreme Court review, the City required all gun owners to obtain training that included one hour of live‐range instruction, and then banned all live ranges within City limits. This was not so much a nod to the importance of live‐range training as it was a thumbing of the municipal nose at the Supreme Court.

I just ordered a Vedder Lighttuck. Seems to have a bit more adjustability than some others and shipped quickly. They are available for a Shield with a Crimson Trace LG489 and LG489G.
