ShapeShift Ruger SR40c Shoulder Holster by Alien Gear Holsters


Some just don't prefer to conceal on the waistline, which is where a Ruger SR40c shoulder holster fits in nicely. Unfortunately, many shoulder holsters wind up in a holster drawer. Why is that?


Shoulder holsters don't always carry comfortably, as they don't necessarily sit in the best position nor distribute the weight of the pistol in the best manner. Retention isn't always the best, either, as many are universal holsters that can technically hold any pistol because they aren't really made for any pistol.


Alien Gear's shoulder holster for Ruger SR40c pistols will carry comfortably, with far more customizability than any other shoulder holster on the market. You can set the holster to carry better for you than any other will let you, with custom fitment and retention.


How?


The shoulder straps hook to the belt, allowing the weight to be distributed more evenly for greater comfort. This also helps the pistol ride closer to the body for easier concealment. The straps are joined via a clover harness that lets the straps adjust to find a more natural position on the body. We also pad the straps with our CoolVent neoprene, which cushions the wearer while wicking away moisture and breathing against the skin.


The holster base and mag carrier base can be adjusted up and down, so they ride in the location you want them in. They are also adjustable for cant angle. Carry the pistol horizontal, with a positive or negative cant, or fully vertical. The mag carrier base, which can be equipped with up to two Alien Gear mag carriers, can be as well.


The fitment is custom, with a ShapeShift half shell, fully wrapping the trigger guard and fitting the pistol perfectly. Passive retention is fully adjustable, and there is also an included removable thumb break should you desire to carry with one.


Wondering if you'll really find it that comfortable? Take it for a 30 Day Test Drive, a trial period after purchase that's included in our Iron-Clad Guarantee on all holsters sold. You can return the holster for a refund during that period if unsatisfied. We also fully warranty the holster for life.

Great Shoulder Holster but read for details Review by WG

I used a shoulder holster for the first time on a recent deployment and loved the feel, so I figured I'd get one for my personal carry weapon, a Sig P226. This holster has an amazing look and feel. I agree with a couple of the other reviews though. The instructions weren't quite clear in certain areas and you should have the same cover for the magazine holders as you do for the pistol so it doesn't scrape your arm. In addition, it took about 3 hours for me to set up, but I am a bit of a perfectionist. Being a bigger guy, I had to use a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the straps and the screws are extremely small, so make sure you keep track of them. Adjusting the straps was a little bit of a pain, but only because the leather is new and tight. Since I lowered the rig, I had to take the belt hooks off because they were too low and couldn't be adjusted anymore. I probably wouldn't have liked using them anyway. The rig came assembled but I had to take the holster apart because the Sig was too big. I had to swap the medium rubber spacers on the barrel side of the holster for the larger spacers. Still a little tight because of the thumb break, but hopefully that will change over time. The trigger side of the gun is a little loose, but if I tighten down that side (bottom) any more, the pistol won't come out easy. Adjusting the cant on the holster was easy enough but had to watch a video on how to cant the magazines. Now that I know how, it couldn't be easier. Overall a great buy and I look forward to getting some use out of it. (Posted on 9/21/2019)
Good, but needs one more thing for all day comfort. Review by Redsun.Ronin

Been using shoulder holster for months now and it's a nicely build holster.. but coming from the perspective of a bigger guy; The side that holds the extra mags needs the same flap cover as the pistol side. Without the flap, the magazine digs in, on the underside of my arm. Had to remove the extra mags and use a owb holster for them. Overall Quality: Well built. But would either like to see a add-on flap that i can purchase for the mag side.. or I'll just have to modify the damn thing myself. (Posted on 6/16/2019)
High Quality, Excellent fit, Instructions Not So Good. Review by John

The materials, workmanship, and quality of the ShapeShift shoulder holster I bought for my Glock 30 are first rate; It fits as it should, is comfortable, and is considerably more secure and stable than other rigs I've had over the years.
The instructions provided to set the system up, however, are rather poor. Illustrations are too small, the text confusing, insufficient, and hard to follow given the different ways to assemble depending upon retention choice.
If I'd change anything about the system, I'd make it possible to use both shell halves together, to more fully enclose the gun and stiffen the whole assembly. (Posted on 6/11/2019)
Overall Great Product!! Review by Artie

First off I am going to state that this is an awesome product. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a shoulder holster. I'm digging the brown leather. The neoprene areas are comfortable. Adjust-ability is simple, The stretchy areas on the straps at the shoulders and belt hooks make it comfortable to wear and does not make you feel constricted regarding everyday or exaggerated movements.

Only gripe I have is the thumb release. It does function as intended in releasing the firearm however, I feel like it can be improved on and operate more smoothly as it feels "sticky". (Posted on 4/30/2019)

Great for detective use. Very secure using the half shell and push button release. Great retention. Close to body. Soft leather that doesn't scratch easy. Only downside is takes a good hour to set up to your fit (Posted on 3/30/2019)
Sig Sauer 1911 CARRY DOES fit the shapeshift holsters!!! Review by Boskii

i have been watching this particular holster for bout a year waiting for reviews to see what others had experienced. after a few reviews i decided to order mine shapeshift shoulder holster for self defense and conceal carry purposes. i own a Sig Sauer 1911 in a carry model (not full size). On the sight a sales person said they do not have a form fitted holster for Sig Sauers but the 5" full size 1911 case should work.... i decided to take a chance and trust my instincts and the rep. i received my holster in the mail and on the bag it said it would NOT fit my gun....i was disappointed but i did not give up. I decided to adjust the holster and put my Sig Sauer carry 1911 in and it fit perfect!!!! no button clip needed it fits tight and snug. i jumped, ran around and it stayed!!! i cut the back of the full length holster down to 4" to help better conceal my firearm and it still fit perfectly, It didn't affect my gun fitment at all. Alien gear has my definite approval. Hopefully they surprised themselves after reading this review!!! I would love to sponsor them any day and stand by their product for years to come.
Thank you Alien Gear! (Posted on 2/9/2019)
Top of the line,, Well worth Review by G

I had plenty of holsters from most all the well known holsters company's durning my decades of LE.
Alien Gear is without doubt the best. Never had an issue, instruction are well written, the concealment is great and absolutely comfortable.
I have the 3.0 IWB, after wearing that for a year being that NO company had a decent shoulder holster for my S&W MP .45 Shield 3.3" bbl.
I pester the Alien Gear Customer Service in regards to when would they make a Shoulder Holster for my S&W MP .45 Shield.
WA LA!!!! little over a year later Alien Gear made the Shape Shift Modular Holster System Shoulder Holster, I have been wearing this holster daily for over 4 months now. OUTSTANDING!!!!
Fellow LE Brothers & Sisters No joke, their products are Good.
Good Luck all. Be safe! (Posted on 1/31/2019)
Decent product Review by Hotrod

Having purchases the shoulder holster after reading the product information I was somewhat underwhelmed by it. As a motorcycle rider I would prefer using the passive release. I am a left handed shooter and I find the release, obviously set up for a right hand draw, very awkward/difficult to use. The rig also has a strap link to allow you to remove the mag holder allowing a lighter low profile. The link would greatly benefit with the addition of an elastic strap and belt hook like the mag carrier. As it is now with my body shape the holster slides slightly off balance and is not as comfortable. I am still within my 30 day test drive and have not decided if I will keep the rig or look for an alternative. I will say the quality of the leather and construction is very good.

I love this system, I was using an urban carry rig that was more expensive and not as good. All that being said. I have 1 single issue with this. My issue is that I have a Hogue Laser grip on my 1911 that I can't use anymore because it will not fit into the holster and I don't want to void the warranty on the shell by cutting out a small piece so it can fit securely into the holster.

Once I customized the cant ,and working angle of everything. Adjusted to fit me,
Comfort level was very good , I carry a 1911,
5" full frame. Carrying anywhere on the waist is challenging. Especially in a vehicle. Thank you.
Especially your engineering department for designing a Swiss army knife of shoulder holsters. (Posted on 1/14/2019)
