    Alien Gear IWB for G2C

    I ordered a ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster for my G2C and should be arriving in the mail soon. Is anyone here using this for conceal carry and what are your thoughts on it? Also is anyone carrying extra magazines. Thanks

    I have the earlier AG holsters for my S & W Shield 45 that I've got on now and been wearing all day. Spares for this one are in a DeSantis two slot pouch. I also have an AG IWB for my PT 111 G2 and CZ75 Compact, a single leather mag pouch on the weak side for when I carry those. One really cool thing about AG, besides their warranty, is the ability to swap out shells at no charge if you decide to divest yourself of a particular gun.

    Oh..and welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois!

    Thank you. I was originally going to go with one of their earlier styles but decided to go with the 4.0. I do like shell upgrade they offer. Is your mag holster universal or fitted to your magazine?

    Just like holsters, once tends to collect many mag pouches. The DeSantis for instance was the result of a long search for the S & W Shield mags which have a skinny dimension one way as it's a single stack 45 ACP and wider the other way for some reason. A 1911 mag holder isn't wide enough for those suckers and due to the 7 round capacity for the "extended" mag, I needed two slots. That guy cost me over 30 bucks but has proven to be durable.

    I looked for the source of the leather single stack mag pouch that I bought for the PT 111 G2 and thought it was Amazon, but don't see it on prior order history. It was selected as it is a double stack size (think Glock) and is much deeper than the Taurus magazine. My thought was to carry an 18 round P226 magazine for the backup to the 12 round in the pistol. I haven't yet as I have not run enough rounds through those to prove them reliable for carry. I want to install a second snap to snug the cover flap farther down for the toting of the 12 round mag is I go that way, but still haven't found the spare snaps to do it with. IIRC the cost of that single pouch leather unit was 20.00 +/-.

    Found it! I bought mine on Ebay for 16.00 in 2018. That seller doesn't have them again, but this one is very similar:

    Here's one he has for the Glock 22:

    Message him to get the ID of each and see if those work for you. He also has double pouches.

    I hate that...try looking through Google history or whatever browser you use.

    I have been using it for the last few days and it is comfortable to carry. I need to work on drawing my pistol and get a better feel for it and get it adjusted right.

    They break in a bit and get even more comfy. I favor a forward cant and have mine adjusted to the max in that direction. It also helps the grip to hide better under my shirt.
