Alien Gear Shape Shift Holster System

Postby Tex1961 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:36 am

Just purchased the Alien Gear shape shift holster system. A little background first.

LTC for just over a week now so a newbie
Current gear is Bersa Thunder 380 with Alien Gear IWB and OWB holsters, but changing out to a Ruger LC9s this week. (Bersa and Holsters have been sold)
IWB carry, but cold weather coming so will most likely switch to OWB
I do some light amateur competition shooting so I require a OWB holster that is a bit further away from the body and of course a full sized 9mm for those competitions.

I ordered the new Shape Shift system to fit the LC9 and an extra shell for my larger 9mm when comp. shooting... I am an old tech geek anyway so the new system is right up my alley... I am already comfortable with the AG holsters anyway so I figured not much of a stretch to adjust to a new holster.. From my understanding the new holsters are even more comfortable than what I have... I figured for the $99.00 price VS buying 2 or 3 different ones for different guns and carry style was a good choice.

Has anyone else here purchased the Shape Shift system yet?

I have thought about this, but haven't purchased one, so I'll be interested in your experience.

I currently carry a Ruger SR9c in a Fobus paddle holster. While I like the flexibility of the Shape Shift, the paddle configuration appears to stick out from the body much further than the Fobus. I like the "high and tight" feeling of the Fobus, which is why I've hesitated on the Shape Shift to this point.

can't comment on the shape shift model, but alien gear just got another +1 from me.
I called Monday about my cloak tuck for xd 45 tactical, the shell was starting to crack along the sight channel (3 years of hard use). I asked about ordering a replacement shell, they said lifetime warranty - where do we mail it.
got a tracking number yesterday(tuesday) showing delivery tommorrow (Thursday).
Good business.
