Has anyone had any good experiences with the AlienGear ShapeShift Modular holster? I want to buy this holster for my Beretta 92G Elite LTT but I have no clue how good this company and these holsters are. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

IMHO, unless one is one a large body type, the Beretta 92 is a quite large for a concealed carry EDC pistol. YMMV!

I use their 3.0 and 3.5 for four different guns.

Not sure about the shape shift. I prefer a dedicated master as opposed to a jack of all trades. They say it isn't bigger, but it's damn sure heavier.

And yeah, sweet gun, but, you gotta ask yourself one question. "Do I feel lucky?" Well? Do ya . . . :grin

Yeah, know it's not the same, but it's big!

If you want to carry it; carry it.

I carry Commander sized 1911s often, and Government Model sized ones pretty often. A good gun belt and good holster actually have more to do with carrying comfortably than pistol size does. That said, Alien Gear isn’t a brand that holds any interest for me. Not to put them down any more than other brands; there’s just a pretty short list of holster brands that I care for.

Kydex: Panther Concealment

Leather: Warbird Leather, Brommeland Gunleather, Mitch Rosen Extraordinary Gunleather, Wilson Combat.

There are several other custom leather holster makers that members here are very pleased with, I just don’t have personal experience with many of them.

A lot of people like Alien Gear. From what I hear, they're a good company.

Leaving the product out of it and only judging their business model and how they operate, they're top notch.

I agree Rick, but I'd add Little Bear Custom Holsters to your leather list

Thanks for the feedback, most of the good holster companies are custom holster companies and it will take a few weeks to produce. I'll keep looking, I am going try Little Bear and the ones that RickMcC. mentioned, I might lucky and find one that I like.

Any custom holster is going to be a long wait, I think.

I've bought many ready-to-go holsters that work great. To be clear... I'm not talking about "universal" holsters. They're made / molded to fit a specific gun. I don't think you can go wrong with: Crossbreed, White Hat Holsters, or Alien Gear. There are others as good... too many to list. I'd get a ready-to-go holster for now, at least. Then you can shop around (and WAIT) for a custom holster, if you want one.

Dillon Precision sells holsters made by Mitch Rosen (the black leather OWB ones), and keeps some in stock. Cost is @$75.00.

I think Paul at Warbird Leather has several in stock now. If he makes you one to order, it’ll take about a month to get it.

Wilson Combat has their holsters in stock.

I have two Panther Concealment holsters (kydex) coming Friday. I ordered them last week.

Gary Brommeland is a one man shop. I’ve never gotten a holster from him in less than four months, and usually it’s taken a good bit longer than that. They are worth the wait. I have five of his IWB Max Con-V holsters.

I used to use Galco holsters, and have three. I won’t use or recommend them to anyone after the black die leached from one onto my pants. I returned it to Galco at their request (and my expense), but they wouldn’t do anything about it. Scroom!

^^^ This. It’s how we all started out and now all have a drawer, or two, full of empty holsters we never wear anymore and keep forever. :grin

Hey; maybe we should start a “pay it forward” holster thread, and have Beerhunter make it a stickie. We could list the holsters that we’re never going to use again, for others that are in need of holsters.

It’d help others, and free up storage space.

I use an aliengear shapeshifter and love it. It is very comfortable. That said, it is a little on the large side. I carry a Glock 23 at 4 PM position. Overall, I do recommend this holster.
