ShapeShift S&W M&P40 Pocket Holster by Alien Gear Holsters



Just because you carry with a S&W M&P40 pocket holster doesn't mean that a single iota of function should be compromised. That's what other holster designs ask you to put up with. You trade fitment, retention and the draw for the convenience of carrying in a pocket.


So many pocket holsters for M&P40 pistols consist of little more than a cloth pouch. There is no fitment, outside of it fitting over the gun. Retention comes only from the pocket rather than the holster itself, and the draw is a dubious proposition. Thick cloth almost guarantees that a sight snag will happen and a proper draw can't be had reliably.


Alien Gear Holsters doesn't compromise when it comes to design. We only make holsters that carry comfortably, securely, and give you the function necessary to carry for your protection.


This M&P40 pocket holster is custom-molded for the S&W M&P40. This ensures the perfect fit you need for a quality carry, as well as the sight channel cut inside the holster needed for a smooth draw. The holster is molded from a durable polymer blend, ensuring a long service life.


The ShapeShift shell fully wraps the trigger guard, ensuring a safe carry. You won't have to worry about cloth or anything else snagging the trigger while carrying. Adjust the passive retention to exactly the setting you want to carry with. A slick draw, a tight hold, somewhere in between...it's all up to you.


You'll also notice the pocket catch, a necessary feature of any pocket holster. Ours firmly snags in the pocket, anchoring the holster in place and letting you draw the pistol clean. This allows you to train properly, but also carry with the confidence that you'll be able to get the gun into action should you need to elsewhere.


We also won't have you worrying about a guarantee. Alien Gear Holsters backs this product with our Iron-Clad Guarantee, a comprehensive product guarantee including a 30 Day Test Drive trial period and our Forever Warranty on the holster for its entire life.


Shift into a better carry and start your Test Drive today!

Awesome. Covers trigger, custom lock in fit, holster stays in pocket when you draw Review by Ortho Southpaw
Quality

I have the alien gear shapeshifter series and I like it especially for value and versatility, though you lose some quality for each style. I would still recommend alien gear, especially this. My main concern was pulling out the gun - would it be hard to pull out and would the entire holster come out? But this is an awesome pocket holster. The clip thing on the side grabs your pocket when you pull the gun 99% of the time and the gun comes out just fine. And since it’s in your pocket, you can leave the holster a bit loose to make it a quicker draw because the tension of your pants keeps it from moving around already. It has a trigger guard and is custom fit to your gun, unlike others I have seen. It’s a bit pricey, but if you plan to pocket cary this is a hood choice. I will say if you are a smaller person and are carying an m&p shield 2.0 9mm it might stick out a bit. I am 6’ 2” 190 and it fits in my work pants without showing, but when I sit the handle starts to come out. With jeans the gun doesn’t really fit enough to conceal. This isn’t the holsters fault, it’s not bulky at all. It’s actually very light yet gun clicks into place just fine. Pricey but worth it if you will pocket carry. (Posted on 7/12/2020)
Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck... its a duck. Review by Juan

Absolutely enormous pocket holster, I'm a smaller person 5'6" 115lbs and in any pair of pants I own my weapon is completely visible. Not only is it a ginormous mass in my pocket it looks like a gun, quacks like a gun... its very obviously a gun. I tried to contact customer service on multiple occasions and got no response through phone call or email. Completely disappointed by the product and customer care. (Posted on 7/11/2020)

This holster is amazing. Using the full shell with the little print breaking clip at the bottom. No print at all. Replaced my uncle Mike's holster. This holster does require some assembly, but it's easy enough to figure out even if you don't read the instructions. (Posted on 4/23/2020)

Very Good Holster, One concern. Review by HC145
Quality

With more baggy pants or shorts this holster is perfect. I love how comfortable it is and how easy to use it is. I had no problems drawing it from my pocket, even with tight jeans on. I have no concerns with the safety of it. However, with tighter jeans the gun prints and a CPL holder would probably know what it is. I don't think the average person would suspect though. But again, I am thinking this is not avoidable even with another design. A gun is a gun. I sent this picture to a few of my friends and they did not know what it was. (Posted on 1/18/2020)
Great Holster, Great Value! Review by Martin

I was very impressed with this holster! It's very comfortable and even when I wear straight jeans it doesn't print like a gun. I like how you can use it in jeans, jackets, or coats and it works just fine. It's nice to be able to carry in the pocket and have the catching feature on your pocket. Overall would highly recommend to others! (Posted on 12/31/2019)

Great stuff for Taurus G2C Review by Globemstr3
Quality

Ive been carrying a Bodyguard 380 as my EDC. Carried in a Sticky Holster. Works fine no complaints with Sticky. Didn't feel comfortable with a 6+1 n 380. Got a GREAT deal on a 12+1 Taurus G2C. Almost got the 365 but Im very frugal. OK cheap.
I really use a pocket carry. IWB/OWB is great just not for me.
I bought a holster for the G2C. IWB nice manufacturer I just don't like IWB. Without getting into the holster hunting mouse cage I bought the Shapeshift Pocket for G2C. Total game changer. Unboxed it read nothing, thru the firearm in it and stuck in my Wrangler Cargo short front pocket. No tensioning no nothing.
They say Thumb it to release the firearm. Cant do that with a half thumb due to injury. I used trigger finger press on the shell. WOW! This Shapeshift is OUTSTANDING.
I sorta feel like Doc Holiday at the draw and have had it 20 minutes!
Will be buying expansion products in the future. And I finally found a Holster company I can stick with without breaking the bank. Thank You Alien Gear!

I have carried a handgun for over 20 years, on several different platforms, and I am here to tell you this company beats them all. If you are unsure of which way you are wanting to carry this is the holster company for you. I have probably owned over 50 different holsters and I think I may have found my last company I will ever use.
