I need a holster for my P320 I am planning to buy.

Does anyone use the Alien Gear Shape Shifter Holster?

I looks interesting, It comes with the parts to go from IWB to OWB etc.

I have it. Primarily for IWB or ankle.

Depending on your belt, you might have to thread it through the clips on the holster.

I've been happy.

I have one for my shield, works pretty well and is comfortable. It is a little thicker that a leather or hybrid holster but does shape to my body pretty well. Ive been planning to get the conversion for my G19 too.

I have one with shells for the VP9 and the XD Service model. Have been using it IWB and it's extremely comfortable. I wore the XD all day last Saturday in a bunch of places.

Just make sure you test it out first to get the cant, ride height, and retention set the way you want it. I am still fiddling with the retention on mine to get it to the perfect sweet spot.

The only downside is that it takes a few minutes to put on. It's not a slip in the waistband and forget it like a Vedder or Concealment Express.

I have several - IWB, ankle, and now a shoulder holster. I have shells for both the P320 Carry/Compact and the P365.

I use the C-clamp for the IWB. I'm getting another set of clamps, and might trim them back a little to add/remove from the belt a bit easier.

I've written about them in other threads. I'll highlight a bit on each type.

The ankle holster is the best I've felt. Like all other ankle holsters, it does have limitations - the ankle wrap portion won't work with a boot, but I think I can make another part for that if needed later.

The IWB is very comfortable for me. Like noted above, I'm looking to modify the C-clamp a bit.

The shoulder holster has a clip that goes under the belt on both sides to hold it down and against the body. I've had issues with other shoulder holsters because of my particular body shape. It has both a thumb release and a thumb strap depending on your preference.

I've not tried their OWB as it isn't a method I use often. The last time I did carry OWB was with a suit a few years back - this was before I even knew of Alien Gear's products.

Feel free to email me if you want additional information.
