Why settle for the gamut of substandard S&W M&P9C paddle holsters out there? There are so many that leave so much to be desired.

Bad or generic fits that require you to use an active retention device whether you want to or not, uncomfortable or flimsy paddle attachments, and so on make it difficult to find a paddle holster that's actually worth investing in.

After all, just because a paddle holster is convenient doesn't mean that function is supposed to discarded. This is how you wind up with a holster drawer full of failure.

We're here to save you from that frustration.

You CAN have an M&P9 compact paddle holster that carries securely and comfortably. One that fits your pistol like a good holster is supposed to. Where the holster has good retention without needing to rely on an active retention device...though maybe it would be nice to have one anyway. That's what the ShapeShift paddle holster is designed to do.

How is this possible?

First, the holster shell itself is molded to the M&P9C, only. No generic off-the-shelf fit to be found. This holds and retains your pistol as a good holster should.

However, retention is also customizable. You can employ the Adjustable Retention Unit and dial in the passive retention force you want or install a thumb release for active retention. You could also have both and enjoy a full Level II M&P9C retention holster.

The paddle securely locks with the holster, though it is also fully adjustable for cant angle. The paddle is contoured for comfortable carry but also for secure carry, as the retention lip ensures the holster doesn't come loose once fixed to your waist.

Get tired of the paddle? That's fine - you can change the paddle attachment to a belt slide, and the ShapeShift will never leave your side until you want it to.

However, we know that this is promising a lot. We're prepared to back it up.

Take the first 30 days of ownership to wear the holster and see if it satisfies your craving for an M&P9C paddle holster. Return it for a full refund in that time-frame if not.

We also fully warranty the holster for life. Any issue gets fixed or you get a new one, for as long as you own it.
