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.

Great customer service. Holsters a made decent. When you place a order you will wait a long time to get your holster because shipping is very slow. (Posted on 9/5/2019)
Not good for reholstering or drawing. Review by byron

The this holster seems like it would be good but the problem is that the shell for the gun is only attached to one side of the flat material piece that fits up against your pants. Therefore, the material bends with your body and crushes up against the gun itself making it very hard to draw (because the gun retention is coming from your belt forcing the holster and gun up against the tacky material) and near impossible to reholster if you have any tension on your belt at all. This holster needs a completely supported shell so that retention can really be adjusted and make it usable. (Posted on 8/22/2019)

Really well made holster, super comfy, almost forget its there. Friction hold is adjustable from really easy to get out, to strangle hold, death grip, nearly impossible to get out.

The only thing i would change on this; would be to attach some sort of push button trigger guard, so your weapon wont be able to be grabbed from behind, or fall out. (Posted on 3/4/2019)

Some improvement needed Review by Tim W

I really, really wanted to like this holster. I have the IWB, driver defense and hook/loop holsters with ShapeShift shells and all work spectacularly. This one, however, needs some improvement. Due to the way the belt loops both attach to the shell, the holster is completely too stiff and doesn't conform to my waist, like having a piece of wood belted to me. It works better in the 4-5 o'clock position, but it's fairly awkward at the 3 o'clock position. I guess if i were a little thicker in the middle then it would be better. Complaints aside, I still wear it since I've invested in the ShapeShift system. (Posted on 1/17/2019)

Awesome holster, I currently have an iwb for my compact Glock 40 caliber that is quite uncomfortable. I purchased the Alien Gear shapeshift outside the waistband for my Colt 1911 45 caliber with a 5 inch barrel and it is a hundred times more comfortable then the inside the waistband holster for my glock. I will be buying more shells in the future from Alien Gear. The customer service is on point as well. (Posted on 1/11/2019)

Size and Comfort Review by Bursting Bomb (Top)

Awesome fit and comfort for my Glock 19. I replaced the stock magazine release with an extended one (Perfect for my hand) and was concerned that it might drag on the holster. No problem at all, still smooth in and out to present. This holster is so comfortable, you may find yourself wanting to touch it to be sure you have it on. For my needs, a 5 star grade was a no brainier. After six months, I feel that I have had and used this holster long enough to give and honest review. (Posted on 12/28/2018)
