The Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield EZ pistol is a popular option for an easy-to-operate concealed-carry pistol. Now Comp-Tac holsters are making five of its most popular holsters — the MTAC, Infidel Max, Warrior, eV2 and International — for this new pistol.

“Firearm manufacturers continue to expand their product lines with handguns that have additional features and options to fit a wide variety of customers, lifestyles and uses,” said Gordon Carrell, Comp-Tac general manager. “We at Comp-Tac believe in those same ideals and strive to match the varied number of handguns with an equal variation of holsters. Our many holster fits help to meet the needs of customers regardless of carry position, clothing options, lifestyle needs and more.”

The MTAC is a hybrid, inside-the-waistband (IWB) holster that works well for customers who need to tuck their shirt in. The two mounting clips on the MTAC are located on the sides of the holster, allowing a shirt to be tucked in over the gun and holster, leaving only the clips to show for increased concealment.

The Infidel Max Holster is an all-Kydex IWB holster designed to be worn behind the hip at the 4 o’clock or 5 o’clock positions. The holster features an easy-on, easy-off single clip, and is a favorite for users who want the ability to put on or take off their gun as their environment dictates.

The Warrior Holster is an outside-the-waistband holster that has been tested and recommended for use by the National Training Officers Association (NTOA). The all-Kydex, pancake design is purpose-built for concealed carry or general range use. The eV2 Holster is an appendix inside-the-waistband holster designed for concealed carry. The eV2 includes the Comp-Tac Kick, a small extension that is designed to help press the gun into the body for better concealment.

The International Holster is an all-Kydex holster with a modular mounting system which includes a belt mount, paddle mount and drop offset options. The International has been the top holster used at the IDPA nationals for eight years in a row and is an excellent choice for those who want to participate in competitive shooting events or just head to the range for some training time.

MSRP for these new holsters for Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield EZ varies by model type. For more information on these holsters or other gear from Comp-Tac, please visit comp-tac.com
