Ruger SR40c ShapeShift Core Carry Pack
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.
