S&W M&P40c Compact 3.5 inch barrel ShapeShift OWB Paddle Holster

$49.88
Instead of another poorly-constructed range-only holster, why not get an S&W M&P40C paddle holster that you can actually use? One that's good for range use, wearing around the house, outdoor use and at all points in between?

The typical M&P40C paddle holster fails at some aspect, which is why so few people carry with a paddle holster on a regular basis. The paddle is either weak or uncomfortable. The holster itself doesn't really retain the gun, requiring you to use a thumb break or something whether you want to or not. Ultimately, the fate of most paddle holsters is the holster drawer until range day.

Should it be this hard to find a decent M&P40C paddle OWB? We don't think so, which is why we've created the ShapeShift Paddle Holster. This holster configuration of the ShapeShift Modular Holster System is designed to overcome the typical limitations of this holster format, and you will see the difference when you wear it.

First you'll notice the paddle's durable design, though it's contoured for comfortable carry. The retention lip on the paddle keeps it anchored where you insert it. The attachment itself locks securely into the holster. It can be adjusted for cant angle as well.

In fact, the paddle can even be changed to a belt slide should you desire it.

The holster itself is molded for the M&P40C, only - this is no generic plastic holster here. You also have your choice of retention. Dial in the perfect passive retention with the Adjustable Retention Unit, or install the thumb release for active.

You can also have both, and enjoy the security of a full Level II M&P40C retention holster.

The ShapeShift is the most durable, customizable and functional paddle holster on the market today. We think you'll notice.

However, should you be unsatisfied with it in any way, you can return it at any time during the first 30 days of ownership for a full refund - which is part of Alien Gear's Iron-Clad Guarantee.

We also warranty the holster for life, so any issue will get fixed or the holster will be replaced as long as you own it.

Why settle if you don't have to? Shift to a better standard of carry.

I love the design, but it sticks out way to far for me. I like to have an owb but close to me. this has almost 2" of space between my body and the actual holster. (Posted on 8/26/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Ken! Thank you so much for reaching out and we do apologize for this. With paddle holsters they do general cause alot of spacing between the holster and your body. For any one looking for a holster that stays snug up to your body we definitely recommend any type of holster with belt loops so you can keep the holster and firearm up close to your body. We hope this helps for your future purchases!

365 holster not so good Review by Shemp

The holster arrived promptly and set up the way I ordered it.

I wore the holster for about a week on duty as a Police Officer. As I was standing, the holster suddenly was upside down. The top screw came out causing the holster to be top side down. I examined the holster and found the bottom screw to be loose too.

I understand that this can happen but I sent a "chat" to the company and they never responded. I even asked for additional screws since one was now missing.

I was able to find another screw to secure the holster for now, so based on the incident and the failure of the company to reach out to me, I would not recommend the product. (Posted on 7/30/2020)

Alien Gear Holsters responded:

Hello Dan! Thank you for the review and we do apologize for screw falling out. We recommend to apply a little bit of Blue Loctite to the threads of your screws to seal them in place. With walking, running, jumping, etc the screws can come out with a thread locker keeping it in place. Please reach out to our customer service if you can any additional questions!

I received my holster and had to contact alien gear through chat to resolve a minor issue. I lost service during the chat on their website and immediately received a phone call from one of their reps. They acknowledged the minor issue and sent me a brand new replacement holster! And they even told me to keep the old one and not to worry about sending it back! I am very very impressed. I will be purchasing from them again in the future. Thank you again btw!

These are genius! I have the shape shift paddle holster and a dash mount. At first, it was difficult to remove while pressing the release. CS suggested a dab of white grease. Boom! Now, I do like! (Posted on 2/3/2019)
best holster for my new gun Review by yaya

I got a Kimber micro 9 and couldn't find a good outside belt secure carry option for my new pistol. Their holster is the bomb. It also can be converted to inside belt carry but I will never do that. The pistol is secure and yet easily accessible in the holster. Great engineering. I will buy their products again without hesitation. (Posted on 1/14/2019)
