    hello all, i'm just about to pick up a g26 to conceal carry, and was looking for holsters that work well. i've looked through some old posts and found a few ideas but was looking for some more ideas from people who have a 26, and know what works well and what doesnt work well. thanks.

  2. What method of carry do you expect to use?

    I carry my Glock 33 daily (same size as your 26).

    For pocket carry, i use a Desantis Nemesis.

    for IWB, I use a Galco Deep Cover

    for OWB, I was using a Galco Matrix with paddle.

    I am in myrtle beach this week and am currently testing an XConcealment holster for OWB. It's a belt loop instead of a paddle and so far it's been good. It's high and tight enough. i still have to use an extra shirt because with a t-shirt, it still prints (just like the Matrix). If I t-shirt only, i will use the Deep Cover for IWB or pocket carry.

    I borrowed a coworkers ankle holster and it was horrible for me.

    For IWB I recommend the Comp-Tac MTAC, I am using one with a 5.11 nylon belt for my 27. Works well :cool:
  4. IWB - either a Crossbreed Supertuck or MTAC.

    OWB - I've found the Glock Sport/Combat to conceal like no other (plus it's about as inexpensive as it gets). I also carry in a Don Hume 721OT - very comfy and good concealment.

    OWB generally tends to conceal just as well and is a little more comfortable than IWB, but a novice can conceal effectively IWB, where OWB takes a little more knowhow. The glock sport holster is an OWB I recommend to everyone starting out or looking around. Remember- no holster will perform well unless it's worn on a proper gunbelt.

    Remora. IWB with no clips. The best holster you'll forget you're wearing.

    When I carry my G26, it's usually in a Fobus ankle holster. The holster is ok.

    I was looking for something relatively inexpensive to try ankle carry and it fit the bill. Now I'm eyeing a Triad for ankle.

    When I carry at the waist, I will step up to my G23 in a Crossbreed Supertuck.

    That Remora is interesting, though.........

    This one looks pretty sweet if it works. I'm thinking about rolling the dice for $30.

    For IWB, it's hard to beat the Blade-Tech Phantom. OWB, I like the Sport/Combat.

  12. There's a million posts on here about what conceal carry holster for the 26, gotta come up at least once a week. However, what there isn't, is a list of holsters that don't work. Here's my experience on what not to do.

    Single clip In-Waste-Band holsters made of nylon/felt or the combination. Dont do it. They are typically sold at the sporting good stores, for a seemingly economical value. They tend to fold under the trigger guard when inserted, and make a nasty situation, where your gun is 1/2 hanging out, and you have a roll of thick nylon stuck in the trigger guard.

    They can be re-holstered properly, with some practice. However, if your going to carry a gun, you better practice with it. Good idea to wear your carry holster when you go to practice, to work on draw/fire. Trying to do this when you have to take 30 seconds, 2 hands, and stare at your waste the whole time to do it, is annoying. I have a couple, 1 was givin to me, 1 I use for a .38 for a bed holster. The one unused collects dust in a drawer of abandoned holsters.

    Spot on. Single clip holsters suck.

    I carry CW9 in Remora. I have no complaints but I've nevertried anything else. I do want to get a Fist holster for my 19 or something better so I'll be watching this thread.

    Galco Ultra Deep Cover. I have no complaints about it. Just got a similar one for my Detective Special. And I only liked the Versa-Max 2 for IWB carry before.
  16. Wasn't talking about this at all. Glaco makes great stuff.

    Basically, don't get a cloth holster with an unsupported mouth. Leather, from my experience, tends to be stiched heavy around the mouth, so even if it collapses, it won't fold over when trying to reholster. You can usually even do them 1 handed.

    I mean, this.

    Just ordered my second Remora holster yesterday. Best holster I've found for IWB carry. Holds the gun tight, completely stable and priced right. Only regret is that I wish I'd found it prior to collecting the large box full of unacceptable random holsters - some of them quite pricey - in my closet.
