Ruger SR40c ShapeShift Core Carry Pack

$99.88

Please note: The ShapeShift Core Carry Pack, formerly known as the Starter Kit, has been renamed to better represent the four most popular “core” carry styles within our growing modular holster system.

ShapeShift Modular Holster System


The ShapeShift Modular Holster System is patent pending.
Quality compacts such as the Ruger SR40C are practically do-it-all handguns, but it's a pity that most SR40C holsters can't be the same way. Most of the time, you have to get one for IWB carry and one for OWB carry. You may even get a paddle holster for easy on/easy off applications when you're only going to be out for a little bit.

But what if you didn't have to get different holsters? What if just one holster was able to do it all?

That is exactly what Alien Gear had in mind when designing the ShapeShift. A truly modular holster system capable of multiple carry methods, without compromising fit or function in any way.

The secret to the ShapeShift is the shells and the locking rail system. The friction-locking rails allow the holster shells, both the full-length and half-length trigger guard shells, to be assembled in any configuration without tools. The twist-locking system ensures that any holster configuration cannot come apart unless the user means it to. Along with the shells come a series of backers and belt attachments, allowing the user to assemble any manner of SR40C holster they wish.

To switch between carry styles, you assemble the appropriate shell, backer and belt attachment combination.

First you may notice a traditional hybrid IWB holster backer with belt clips that are adjustable for ride height and cant. Attach a full-length shell and a trigger guard shell to this backer for a more traditional Ruger SR40C IWB holster, perfect for concealed carry. You might notice the backer is composed of the same materials as our Cloak Tuck 3.0, with all the same features.

If you prefer an SR40C appendix carry holster, you can attach the same shell configuration to the smaller backer and then install the larger IWB belt clip. This, the first Alien Gear appendix holster, will allow you to appendix carry in comfort like no other AIWB holster on the market.

However, if you prefer to conceal outside the waistband, attach the belt slide attachments instead of the appendix carry clip. This gives you a high-riding belt slide OWB holster. This configuration is perfect for OWB concealed carry, as it disappears under an untucked shirt or light outerwear.

For those occasions when you prefer to open carry, the two half-shells can be assembled for a full wrap and the paddle attachment installed for an ultra-durable paddle holster.

Adjustable passive retention can be installed on all configurations of the ShapeShift by means of installing one of three included retention bars, which create passive resistance. Or, if you prefer, active retention can be employed as well including a finger lock, thumb-release or both.

Along with the features, the ShapeShift Ruger SR40C holster comes with Alien Gear's Iron Clad Guarantee, including both a 30-day "Test Drive" trial period and lifetime warranty. If you are unsatisfied by the holster within the first 30 days of ownership, contact us and we will buy it back.

Our lifetime warranty is fully comprehensive. Should any issue arise with your holster, however it happens, we will fix it. If we can't, we will send you a brand new holster. Period.

You may never carry with any other holster ever again.

Core Carry Pack Review by Joey
Quality

Just received the core pack today, couple of weeks ahead of schedule, Happy about that. Already I am loving this holster and the various configurations. Love the fact that I can release the pistol and the shift shell from the OWB Paddle configuration and put it away when I'm around the house. No bulky parts or holster hanging off my belt. When I'm ready to slap it back on, it's as easy as pushing a button, and wa-la, I'm packing again. Will write more later, but already loving this. Going to order one for my larger pistol next.

This is a well engineered product that is very versatile. I purchased it for my Beretta 96 but unfortunately it doesn't fit my gun with the Elite (thick) slide. However, I liked the system so much I kept it anyway with the idea of getting a shell for another model gun I might acquire.. (Posted on 6/7/2020)
Best Holsters/ Customer Service Review by Austin

I purchased this Core Carry Pack from a third party seller here in Guam and immediately noticed the quality of the products to be some of the best I've ever had. The holsters, Shells for the Firearms, and the neoprene leather IWB pad are some of the highest quality and extremely well designed holsters/ accessories ever made. Unfortunately, I also noticed a couple of the RH (Right Handed) clips for the Appendix carry were missing from the box. I contacted customer support right away and got on the instant messaging chat to state my issue. I was immediately greeted with a representative who was able to help me with my concern. After a few messages and information trading later, she informed me that I would be sent a couple of replacement clips as soon as possible. I just want to thank Alien Gear Representative Cassandra and the entire company for being so customer friendly and helpful when it comes to their products. I completely stand behind this company in full support and will definitely be ordering more holsters and accessories! (Posted on 6/5/2020)
Couldn't be happier Review by John 1791

Easily the best holster/system I've ever owned. Prior military, and avid patriot, I pestered my group of friends, and consistently heard that Alien Gear made what I was looking for. Slides in easily, and remains tightly secured; comfortable to carry all day, and the quality craftsmanship that you'd expect from an American made product,
This is my EDC holster, and nothing on the market even comes close. I guarantee, disappointment will never materialize, especially with their well priced Core Pack. My core pack accidentally came with right handed clips for my appendix carry holster (i carry southpaw; they say i'm more creative than you), and their customer support was superb, getting the appropriate clips shipped out to me without hassle.

All jokes aside, these holsters are the sh*t.

Its much less sturdy than I expected, and has almost no retention on my P229. The weapon can fall right out. After trying to work with AlienGear support we weren't able to get this working. (Posted on 5/31/2020)

Iv never looked forward to leaving a review till now this product is great and the company is even better fast responsive and the holster kit is just perfect the only thing I could recommend if they read these is maybe on the next gen is a soft material built into the inside of the shell where it wont wear anything off the slide besides that I love each configuration and its just a great deal Iv recommended it to everyone who has a pistol or wants to buy one and I'd recommend it to anyone who has come this far to read the comments and that's my review on the core carry pack (Posted on 5/18/2020)

I bought this holster from my local gun shop after looking at different reviews on the site and YouTube...the reviews were not wrong. I purchased this for my Springfield mod2 3.3 and the different accommodations within this one pack is amazing. I plan on purchasing different shells for my different firearms. Now if only we can get a Hellcat shell. (Posted on 5/16/2020)
