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 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)

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)

This holster is so convenient to attach to a no belt waistband. As a woman, it has always been a challenge to find something that would easy and efficient to use. This holster has two wear options, with a belt or without a belt that it is now shared with hubby too!
Aliengear service is exceptional. As a store walk in, I was greeted by an incredible knowledgeable gal named Cathi who took lots of time showing us the different benefits to the holster. We waited at the store and within 15 minutes had a great looking way to open carry or conceal carry. Thank you Kathy! I can't wait until the Sig Sauer 365 with factory laser shell comes out. When it does, I'll be there again purchasing another alien gear product. That will be my third one. (Posted on 9/17/2018)
great holster for the money Review by railmitt

I have bought an iwb holster and a paddle holster as a pair for the double holster deal. I can't say a whole lot about it because I am just getting into the concealed carry part of owning a gun. I have never bought a holster before with the intent of trying to conceal it, with that said I think that it is a very well made and well thought out holster and it should last me a long time. I have several different handguns so I have bought a few different shells for it, and their customer service has always been very helpful in getting or exchanging a new shell. Keep up the great job guys and I will keep buying from you. (Posted on 6/4/2018)
