Ruger LC9 ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster

$51.88
A holster has to do more than sit on the waist. It has to react to the waistline and to the lifestyle of the gun owner. A reliable holster is one that can be customized, allowing the gun owner to control how their sidearm is carried.

The ShapeShift Ruger LC9 belt slide holster is part of a modular system. By removing the Shift Shell that encapsulates the handgun's trigger guard and slide, the gun owner can mount it to any of the available ShapeShift backers for a classic IWB holster at the 4:30 position (or wherever is preferred), an appendix IWB holster or an OWB paddle holster.

The ShapeShift is one system of multiple holsters.

The OWB belt slide holster was designed for comfort, durability and reliability. It sits high and tight so that a coat or long shirt can be thrown over it for concealment. The backer will sit comfortably on the waistline, and is composed of four layers of material to help it do so.

A rear layer of perforated neoprene ventilates the backer while wicking sweat from the holster. A front layer of thermo elastomer Alien Skin texture provides drag and strength. Two inner layers of flexible spring steel and ballistic nylon provide strong support and durability.

The low-profile Shift Shell mounted to the backer is made from injection-molded polymer, which is shaped to fit the exact dimensions of the Ruger LC9. An adjustable retention unit can be installed with the shell for a tighter or looser hold on the handgun.

All the parts and pieces are covered under Alien Gear's Forever Warranty. If a part or material ever malfunctions for whatever reason, we'll repair or replace it free of charge. We also offer a 30-day test drive.

Try it out for a month. If you find it somehow doesn't work for your carry style, we'll buy it back from you with no questions asked.
Please Note: If you have a thumb release from a different ShapeShift offering, it will not work with the ShapeShift OWB Slide Holster.

Could be better Review by Dan

First off it is great quality workmanship and fits the gun great. BUT there is a critical flaw. Because of the way it is engineered the gun will be pinched causing draw problems. The forward and rear attachment of the holster is attached to the belt holder which means that it will be pinched in the 3 o'clock position causing draw problems. The IWB version doesn't have this problem because the rear attachment is not attached and therefore doesn't get pinched. (Posted on 10/23/2020)

Works for me... Review by Medic 78

I purchased the Shapeshift OWB Slider Holster and the Shapeshift Shoulder Holster to see how they would work for me. I am a paraplegic and use a wheelchair for mobility. My fanny pack is what I had been using to carry my weapon but never felt comfortable not having my gun on my person. The Slide Holster is carried on my right hip at 3:30 position. All I need to do is lean to the left to unholster my Glock. I'm quite pleased at how comfortable it is. As to the Shoulder Holster, a review will be forthcoming after I break it in. An additional benefit to the Shapeshift system is that I was able to order different shells for the other Glocks I own. Thanks to the customer service people that I spoke with. They were most helpful. (Posted on 2/24/2020)
