    I'm killing the time waiting for my CPL to get here (8th week of 7-8 week wait in Michigan) by looking for a new holster.

    Does anyone have an Alien Gear holster? I'm going back and forth between that and the FirearmsHolster.

    The price is nice but the firearms holster is also pretty nice.

    Thanks

    wow nothing yet. They must be a very new offering in the IWB holster department because at that price I'm sure some are going to pick one up just because.

    Are we allowed to post links to other forums? I found a review thread elsewhere with comments from several who have purchased the Alien Gear holsters.

    I have the Galco tuk for my xdm9c. Just read a review that said the aliengear was "good" however they are using the same gun mold for multiple models and the leather is not high end and the gun printed in the leather. <<please note not my info...just sharing the review from another forum that showed up via google.

    Thanks for the info guys. At 29 bucks I may just pick one up to see how it works out.

    b00st, I had been kicking around new Holster ideas for some time, but in the end, I went with FirearmHolster. Ordered it from Gavin yesterday and he said expect a 4 Week wait.

    I heard about the company on facebook and decided to look it up. I will tell you what....they have a four week free trail and after that you get a lifetime warranty on craftsmanship. That in and of itself is pretty damn good. I took the plunge yesterday and I am waiting to recieve it. As far as printing on the leather....personally I don't care...its in my damn pants so who is going to see it. What I do like though is the sweat proof guarantee!!!! It's hot here in NC!!!! That's what made me get this holster....don't want that on my XDs. I will post again once I have it and see how it feels. To be fair though I am new to guns in general...came from New York (you know how dumb the laws are up there) to North Carolina about 6 years ago and only this year purchased my first handgun...but I am making up for lost time to be sure!!!!

    Thread resurrection, now that that's over, I ordered an Alien Gear holster at 20:00 on 8/8 (Thursday) and it arrived yesterday 8/12. Wore it around the house last night for about an hour or so. My XDm fit great and its comfortable. This is my first experience with a IWB holster and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with it.

    I'll try and remember to throw some up when I get home tonight. I leave the house at like 745 and get home around 2230-2300 so my days are pretty much shot. If I don't do it by weeks end I will definitely do it this weekend.

    I have cross bread and a alien. The leather is thicker on the alien. But, for 30, it's not bad. I would recommend it for anyone just wanting to try out a IWB holster, or for a kick around holster.
