I didn't see them on the list so far but I have been using Black Rhino Concealment holsters lately. They are similar to the Bravo Concealment kydex holsters but I feel they hug the body a bit better. I plan on getting more holsters from them very soon for some of my other pistols.

I ordered a light bearing OWB holster from this company. The holster was well built but way too tight. I contacted them and they issued me a refund immediately. Every email I sent was answered same day, very responsive.

I sent the holster back and they still sent me a replacement holster anyway. The replacement holster works perfectly and the quality is excellent. The minor hiccup at the outset was resolved with great customer service and I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

For appendix folks, this is the most comfortable AIWB holster I've tried. It is full kydex with an offset belt clip. The wing is an option and I recommend it to aid in concealment.

Gun choices are limited to popular models, but Nate said that he will expand his line up. I specifically have the Skinny Rig holster with wing. I wear it at 12:00 for my Shield and P320C.

Looking for a well made kydex owb holster for my sig scorpion carry, can't find any companies that have a mold or the actual pistol to make a holster for me. Anyone have a suggestion?

I have been carrying for almost 2 years.
I have tried a few holsters. My favorite by far is alien gear iwb cloak and tuck.Comfortable and secure. Also very reasonable on price. Just my 2 cents.

Strongly suggest
I don't think there's a better Kydex holster out there but if so I'd love to hear about it.
Stealthgear ventcore stuff is really nice too, similar quality but for me at least they didn't have the customization options I needed.

I didn't see Raw Dog Tactical mentioned. I live in a Constitutional Carry State and recently received one of their very reasonably priced IWB hybrid Kydex Defender Pro holsters for my PPS M2. So far, I couldn't be more pleased. It's about as slim as it can be, fits nicely, is comfortable, retention and cant are adjustable, comes with extra hardware, is made in Texas, and has a lifetime warranty. They also make OWB and mag holsters.

Default Versa Carry for the win

I would personally recommend a holster from VersaCarry. They have both inside and outside waist bands…not to mention, they also make holsters for leftys. When you order your holster, you have the option to choose the specific size for your particular gun (M&P Shield, Bersa 380, etc.), your size for the type of gun you have (compact, subcompact, etc), left or right handed, and your color. I originally went with the Protector S2 for my first holster from them, and I was really impressed. It fits well because it is formed to fit my M&P Shield and is easily concealable. I plan to buy the Element holster next, which comes with an extra mag pouch and is made for INSIDE THE WAISTBAND. That’s kind of hard to beat in my opinion.
