G26 backup in uniform

Hello Mas -

Many of my colleagues carry J-frames in their back pockets as back-ups.

I, however, don't shoot revolvers very well and already own a G26 and am not crazy about purchasing yet another pistol. (Duty weapon is G17)

Is there a practical way to carry a G26 in a front or rear uniform pocket? Do you have holster recommendations for this method?

Many in my dept don't recommend ankle carry as they feel it would not be accessible during contact struggle.

Thank you and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Welcome to GT, Doc.

Seen in silhouette, the baby Glock occupies about the same "footprint" as a J-frame or a Detective Special, but in three-dimensional practice, it's distinctly "blockier."

There are lots of makers who produce pocket holsters for baby Glocks. You just need pants capacious enough to hide them, and additional drawing practice so the square back of the slide doesn't snag on the top edge of the pocket.

Make sure you practice a LOT with the EMPTY gun, bringing it out of the pocket, before carrying loaded for the street.

Best of luck,

Doc, I'd recommend side trouser pocket over hip/back pocket. A baby Glock is not an easy thing to sit on.
