The history of Alien Gear Holsters is an interesting story... not often do you get to see progression being from the kitchen to an empire. 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, the team has built Alien Gear Holsters into the leading concealed carry holster company.  We have kept our values intact through this time of growth.
