I just bought a Bianchi Accumold belt holster for my full size 9MM. It works fine, but with some pants the belt loops limit where I can place the holster (too far in front or behind). Would I be better off with a paddle?

I don't like paddle holsters myself and use leather Bianchi OWB in slide/pancake versions and generally you can get it placed properlly about 95% of the time.

Paddle-wise, I find the Serpa from Blackhawk a whole lot more comfortable than a Fobus one.

and the paddle attachmnet seems to hold the serpa holster closer to the body than the belt attachment.

I don't really care for paddle holsters.

Paddle holsters are bad in a weapons retention situation! Maybe one like Kramer's MSP paddle that also has a loop, but they are too easy to rip-off the waistline, or even worse break off as the Fobus is known to do!

I'm not a big fan of paddle holsters either. I've had the wife move belt loops before so my pancake will ride where I want it.

I dont like paddle holsters. I tried one out for a while and sold it and bought a standard galco belt holster

Like every holster, a paddle is a compromise. Perhaps more so than some. They excell in certain issues, primarily ease of removal and donning. If this suits your needs, that is the way to go. If that is not a requirement, it is likely you are better served with something a bit more securely anchored to your person.
