Either Raven concealment vanguard 2 or Comptac MTAC. I find them the most comfortable although I'm not sure how they would ride on the female frame.

It will come down to a choice between Inside the Waistband and Outside the Waistband holsters. I've used both, with the G26. Currently I favor this IWB holster, which works well. I didn't like clips, but this one holds very securely.

Where do you want to carry your pistol? If you favor the hip position, the above applies. If you favor the ankle, other options will be available. I prefer strongside hip carry, because it's how I've carried for years and is the first place I reach for to retrieve my pistol, every time.

If you've received training, see where the instructors favor carrying, and work from there. You can do it differently, of course, but that would give you a good starting point.

I have both a Raven Concealment Kydex OWB holster and a Galco Stow-n-Go IWB holster for my G26. Both work very well for me depending on my cover garments.

I conceal carry my 26. Wait for it! Concealed

I have a alien gear 2.0 and I wear it at 4:00- 4:30
But I'm not sure how it would ride on a female.
You might try looking on you tube. I am sure some females about your size have a video or two on their carry methods.

My wife prefers the appendix carry position, while I prefer just behind my hip. I think it depends on body type. My stomach makes appendix carry uncomfortable for me. My wife doesn't have the 26, but the 42 though. I'm not sure if that would change her carry preference.

And I prefer one of the hybrid IWB holsters. Most of them seem pretty similar to me. I have a Foxx and my wife has a White Hat. Both are good.

My wife prefers the smaller, simpler kydex only with a clip. I think she got hers off Gun Goddess or something like that. If you're interested I can look it up when I get home. Oh and all these are IWB holsters which are much easier to conceal the. OWB for the way we dress. I'm wearing my wife's White Hat with just a light tee shirt over it and it is completely concealed and comfortable.

I, too, prefer the GALCO Sto-N-Go All leather holster for concealing my G26 https://www.galcogunleather.com/

I like the re-inforced mouth for easy re-holstering AND the single clip makes attaching it a breeze. Good quality by a good name. Check it out. Around $26+

I have a Galco Leather IWB holster that I modified and I use it and carry the G26 in my front right pocket. No problems

Looks like they actually put some thought into developing this holster.



Thanks for the tip DJ

With the Smart Carry holster, and all other holsters for that matter, trigger finger discipline if very important. You don't want to try and get ahead of the curve and start reaching for the trigger until you are squarely on your target. Proper indexing of the trigger finger on the slide while holstering and unholstering is critical, as it should be with all gun handling.

When I was carrying either a G26 or G27 I really liked the Galco Ultimate Second Amendment ... it was tough, comfortable and tuckable in a pinch (although an untucked shirt, sweater or jacket worked best.
