The Talon S&W Shield 9, Shield 40 and Shield 45, Outside the Waistband Holsters (OWB) is our version of a simple, comfortable, nice looking and high quality holster for the Shield. We built these out of Hermann Oak American Steer Hide, made these in the USA and back them with our NO BULL GUARANTEE. The double leather top keeps the holster open for easy reholstering with one hand. The angles of the belt loops were cut to provide a slight forward cant. The front loop is incorporated in the wrap around piece and put forward on the holster to keep the gun from turning away from the body. This keeps is tight and concealable without taking up too much belt space. The rear loop is extended to hold it tight and provide stability. Training videos are available on TalonHolsters.com.
Order was placed on 05/09/2017 and received 5 days after, excellent service. Quality, style and craftmanship is also very good and practical. My only negative comments is that I ordered the holster for a S&W M&P 45 Shield and the holster received WILL NOT FIT at any rate a 45 Shield, it does fit my 9mm Shield so I decided to keep it for. The Talon S&W Shield Honor Guard OWB will not fit a 45 Shield. (From Talon: Please try bending and stretching the leather a bit, we have been putting a .45 in it for a while now.)
