    Yup...Closed: either it has been running for a long time, they didn't like the results they were getting, or their server died!

    Alien Gear has been pretty good for me (and I'm the classic example of the carrier who has a drawer full of holsters.)

    I'm sure that there are other good ones out there that I haven't tried, but my holster drawer is full, so I rarely experiment further. (Although I did buy a Sig holster when I got my P365. Then, I ordered an Alien Gear, which is what I use when I wear the piece IWB.)

    I have 3 Nate Squared Professional holsters for my Glock 17, 30 & 48. Extremely comfortable for all day wear. Always searching for something better - tried Alien Gear ShapeShift, Vedder Light Tuck and Crossbreed super Tuck but sent them all back with their 30 day trial. Staying with Nate Squared!

    I have 80-holsters from a dozen makers, and I like them all. The one I like best is the one I happen to be wearing that day.

    And I thought I had too many holsters!

    This one is a big favourite of mine too. The other I use a lot is Outlaw Holsters. That said, my main reason for using them is that they aren't bad and it seems that I have chosen unusual pistols. They are one of the few companies that make holsters for what I have.

    I know Alien Gear gets a lot of paise, I even have a couple of their holsters. I just don't like them much, for one thing, they seem quite bulky.

    Glad I'm not the only one who likes Outlaw Holsters, brother. I turn the kydex belt loops around to the front of the holster and run my gun belt across the front of it. There isn't any OWB holster I've ever found that doesn't conceal better that way. Pulls the gun in very snug to your side. The Outlaw is the easiest to convert that way. Plus they make holsters for everything - and I mean everything!

    I am always fascinated when someone asks the question "What is the best [fill in the blank]. It is too subjective to be meaningful. Best for what? Best for who?

    The only thing Alien Gear has going for it is the price...aside from that it is about as unimpressive as a holster gets. I voted for Black arch
