    I'm new to CCW and looking for a IWB holster that will work fine with pants, shorts and even my gym shorts that have elastic waist band. I am using a generation 3 G26 and plan to store an additional mag in my pocket. The only ones that I could find that fit my budget is the Bianchi Model 6D ATB which comes in a old western poop brown color.

    any other suggestions? It will be used all season round

    For a holster to perform properly, you need a gunbelt. If you're not going to wear a belt, you'll need a belly band or waistpack. Even with a belt, single clip holsters generally don't perform well (easily dislodged, "roll" up and out of the waistband fairly easily. A proper holster is stable, and does not need to be adjusted or repositioned repeatedly while worn. My suggestion is to start wearing shorts with a belt, or use an internal belt.

    +1 on the gunbelt. You can spend $200 on a holster and it wont mean ***** without a good stiff belt to support/distribute the weight of the gun. As for the holster, check out shieldedholsters.com. Kurtis is a member here, and makes a good quality leather/kydex IWB holster that comes in at $50 shipped I believe. I have two of them, and I couldnt be happier. And you will have it in a week or so.

    +1 on the gunbelt --my own personal experience is that Don Hume makes a great leather iwb holster w/metal clip under $50. http://www.gunnersalley.com/

    no way the elastic band on gym shorts is going to support a G26. You will also most likely want a holster with some forward cant.

    I agree...I wear shorts w/o a belt and polo shirts 99% of the time. The Remora stays put without a belt.

    I keep hearing about these Remora's.. I'm gonna have to try one. I've always fanny pack'd at the gym, but the Remora is interesting.

    I was skeptical of the Remora holsters...so I ordered one....they work. I was surprised. For IWB carrying, I use the Remora. I've had mine for about a month or so.

    Try this out. I love mine. You don't need a belt and I have worn it in gym shorts with my G36.

    I have been using a Kholster IWB for my G22 and for my Colt 38 Spl. Comfortable and secure. The clips that hold it on the belt are spaced far apart and gives stability.

    When I carried a G19 I used a C-Tac or Infidel, which are above the requested price.
    Now that I am old timer, I use a generic Remora to carry a G17 or CZ75 SP01 Shadow with excellent results.

    +1, 48$ at Midway. Blatant Crossbreed rip-off though.
