Wow! I did a great job! I wish I was so skilled to make diy holster. I badly need a holster so I'm examing a few models from this resource - https://secretstorages.com/best-aiwb-holster/ .Currently I'm leaning towards M&P Shield 9mm CC Holster. Seems to meet my needs perfectly.

What did you ever do about the retainer?

Looked good.

I still have not made a retention strap. I have carried the contender a few times in the holster and never once felt it could fall out. In all honesty, the holster may be a bit too snug. But I have a solution to fix that. A freezer bag with some water inside the holster, place in the freezer and should be stretched just enough

I usually wet mold my holsters to the gun. Wipe it or spray the gun down good with oil ,wrap in plastic [grocery bag works ok] and stick it into the dampened holster.Leave till dry ,next day. This works for me gun is snug, but not tight.Looks like you could drill out the bottom rivet on the belt loop and secure your retention strap there.
