Glock - 42 ShapeShift OWB Paddle Holster

$49.88
For range use, easy on/off carry or outdoor carry if the mood takes you, a Glock 42 paddle holster is kind of perfect. Only problem there is it isn't easy to find a paddle holster that's good for more than taking up space in the holster drawer.

Typical weak points are the paddle attachment and the holster itself. A lot of them are certainly sold as a Glock 42 paddle OWB, but are really just small pistol holsters that have a thumb break for the sole source of retention. Then you have paddle attachments that are floppy, uncomfortable, unadjustable and otherwise not confidence-inspiring.

Why go in for that sort of holster? You wouldn't want to, which is why Alien Gear has set out to change what you can expect from a paddle holster.

How about a Glock 42 OWB paddle holster that's molded precisely for this make and model of pistol, has customizable retention and attaches the belt securely and carries comfortably? That's what we can promise you.

How?

First, the ShapeShift full shell is injection-molded for the Glock 42, made from our proprietary polymer blend that's indestructible under normal conditions. The fit is perfect right out of the packaging.

You also get the benefit of not only adjustable retention, but customizable retention. You can use the Adjustable Retention Unit and dial in the passive retention of your choice, or install the thumb release for active retention. Or you can use both for a full level II Glock 42 retention holster.

You'll never need to worry about the paddle, as it wears comfortably and once docked with the ShiftShell, cannot come undone or break. You also can adjust the cant angle to your satisfaction.

Don't always want the paddle? That's okay. It also comes with a belt slide attachment if you want to change it up.

The ShapeShift Glock 42 paddle holster also comes with Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee, including the 30-Day Test Drive and a full and comprehensive lifetime warranty. We give you a month to return the holster for a refund if you don't like it and warranty it against any issue at all for life.

Why not shift to a better way to carry?

I received my holster and had to contact alien gear through chat to resolve a minor issue. I lost service during the chat on their website and immediately received a phone call from one of their reps. They acknowledged the minor issue and sent me a brand new replacement holster! And they even told me to keep the old one and not to worry about sending it back! I am very very impressed. I will be purchasing from them again in the future. Thank you again btw!

These are genius! I have the shape shift paddle holster and a dash mount. At first, it was difficult to remove while pressing the release. CS suggested a dab of white grease. Boom! Now, I do like! (Posted on 2/3/2019)
best holster for my new gun Review by yaya

I got a Kimber micro 9 and couldn't find a good outside belt secure carry option for my new pistol. Their holster is the bomb. It also can be converted to inside belt carry but I will never do that. The pistol is secure and yet easily accessible in the holster. Great engineering. I will buy their products again without hesitation. (Posted on 1/14/2019)

This holster is so convenient to attach to a no belt waistband. As a woman, it has always been a challenge to find something that would easy and efficient to use. This holster has two wear options, with a belt or without a belt that it is now shared with hubby too!
Aliengear service is exceptional. As a store walk in, I was greeted by an incredible knowledgeable gal named Cathi who took lots of time showing us the different benefits to the holster. We waited at the store and within 15 minutes had a great looking way to open carry or conceal carry. Thank you Kathy! I can't wait until the Sig Sauer 365 with factory laser shell comes out. When it does, I'll be there again purchasing another alien gear product. That will be my third one. (Posted on 9/17/2018)
great holster for the money Review by railmitt

I have bought an iwb holster and a paddle holster as a pair for the double holster deal. I can't say a whole lot about it because I am just getting into the concealed carry part of owning a gun. I have never bought a holster before with the intent of trying to conceal it, with that said I think that it is a very well made and well thought out holster and it should last me a long time. I have several different handguns so I have bought a few different shells for it, and their customer service has always been very helpful in getting or exchanging a new shell. Keep up the great job guys and I will keep buying from you. (Posted on 6/4/2018)
