About Alien Gear Holsters:

In 2010, Thomas Tedder’s firearm slipped from his holster and clattered to the ground in a Chucky Cheese parking lot. This unfortunate mishap drew attention from nearby patrons. 

Knowing that he could no longer depend on someone else’s holster. Tedder began to build his own from the confines of his kitchen. As business grew, the young inventor moved his operation to a shed in his backyard. Over the course of five years, our team has built Alien Gear Holsters into the leading concealed carry holster company. We moved into our new facility in Post Falls, Idaho, in November of 2016.  We have kept our values intact through this time of growth.
