    Hello All,
    Recently I picked up a G26. (Love that thing) I'm going over self defense scenarios with my wife and she says, "is there a holster or something so I can carry it on me while I'm home alone?" I was very happy to hear that!

    Basically I'm looking for opinions on a holster for her to use. I'm thinking maybe a paddle type. Something easy to use. I was looking at the serpa, but I think that would be too complicated right now as she is a beginner. Something not too expensive would be a plus as well. Thanks for your help.

    There's Fobus, but they sometimes take a lot of force to remove the gun.

    Take a look at N82 tactical - http://n82tactical.com/n82store/

    It really is super comfortable. I think there are better holsters out there but for what you have described this may be the ticket.

    I have a Raven Holster for both me and my wife for our G26's. I use the straight drop and she uses the canted. I highly recommend Raven Holsters. I have carried many leather holsters but they take a long time to break in to get a smooth draw. Raven Holsters have the quickest draw with no drag but yet hold great retention. I still like leather but prefer these Raven Holsters. I tried the Serpias and was not a fan. IMO these are the best Kydex holsters out there right now. 100% American made too.

    They are not the cheapest but you have to put things into perspective. You're shopping for an item that will hold a gun that can/will defend your wife and family. Spend the money, its worth it.

    The SERPA shouldn't be too complicated, as a matter of fact, it would teach her to keep her finger straight along the slide/frame and out of the trigger during the draw.


    ETA- Alabama Holster Co is a GT advertiser and they make good stuff.

    Here's an interesting holster, simple and versatile. I ordered one the other day for my bodyguard 380. If I like it i'm gonna try one for my G23.
    Only $25

    I ordered a Desantis Mini Scabbard today. It's all leather and looks like it will work really well for OWB and over the belt. What she gets depends on whether or not she wants it concealed right?

    I have Remora holsters and cannot say enough good things about them for CC.

    A very practical and comfortable holster, I use my Remoras a lot.

    Would a lite weight leather concealment vest work for her?
