Alien Gear Holsters Launches New Holster Fits

posted on November 29, 2016
Alien Gear Holsters announced the introduction of holsters for the Ruger American Pistol and the Smith & Wesson M&P 45 Shield.

Both guns now have dedicated holsters in the Cloak Mod OWB Paddle Holster and Cloack Tuck IWB Holster series. The Cloak Mod OWB holster is designed to allow the end user to adjust cant and retention.

The Cloak Tuck IWB 3.0 has also been upgraded with a steel retention core, which is designed to provide more support than leather. The holster also features a neoprene base that wicks away moisture, providing for a more comfortable carry experience.

All Alien Gear holsters come with an opportunity to try the holster for 30 days, along with free shell trades and a Forever Warranty. If users ever change their carry gun, they can simply send the molded Kydex shell back to Alien Gear, and the company will send a replacement for free. Holsters start as low as $29.88.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
