    I know this is a personal preference question, but I would like your opinions. I usually carry OWB in a Blackhawk Serpa holster, but I just purchased a G26 and I'm looking for options that would be more comfortable to wear with this pistol. Both IWB and OWB. Any thoughts, even ankle? or with shorts and t-shirt?.

    Welcome to GT. I find OWB to be a little more comfortable. For IWB, you can't go wrong with a CBST or one of the Comp-Tac models. For OWB and at a good price, I really like the Hume 721OT as it really pulls the pistol tight. Finally, at a real low budget cost, you could look at the Glock sport-combat, and the Fobus paddle even works okay with such a small, light gun.

    A Crossbreed Supertuck will make that disappear, even under a light t-shirt. I have an el-cheapo ankle holster that I don't trust, but it proved to me that I would gladly use a molded ankle rig.

    I just picked up a new g26 as well. Great gun so far. I have been researching itw holsters for a good week now and just ordered a tommy theis horse hide holster. It is like the CB holster but $30 cheaper and the kydex covers the muzzle so it doesn't wear on your pants. He offers 3 different clips which none of them have crosses on like the CB. Another plus IMO. There are really so many holsters to choose from. Right now I'm using a galco stow n go till I get my theis holster. Works great just looking for more everyday comfort.

    I carry my G26 in an Occidental leather Stronghold Phoenix. It is a leather iwb that is similar to a Milt Sparks VM2, just rides a little lower. Super comfortable all day and disapears under a t-shirt. Only drawback is it's a little expensive.

    Depends where you want to carry. If you want to go behind the hip a supertuck or Mtac is the way to go. If you want to carry appendix I'd suggest looking into a high noon mr.softy or side guard minimal clip. For appendix carry I've found that holsters that don't have a whole bunch of material conceal better in this position. If your not sure yet at this point pick up a remora because you can carry it in any possible position to figure out where your "sweet spot" is. I love the remora for pocket carry as well.

    I carry my G 27 in a MIC Holster. It is very concealable, cheap & very safe.

    As stated above there are a lot of good ones out there. I use the Crossbreed and can't imagine a more comfortable rig for all day carry.

    Check out the Crossbreed seconds website-I've bought 3 from them and all were labeled as "good" or "very good" and they were near new and were $35-$45 plus shipping. They are picked pretty clean right now but they update it periodically.

    My G-27 & 33 I carry both in a Don Hume IWB holster and you cant beat the price for a quality leather holster. I can buy almost 3 for the price of others ! Good luck.

    I carry a G27 OWB and am partial to easy on/off holsters. I've had much success with these two:

    Galco Matrix M7X:

    UBG Regulator:
    http://www.ubgholsters.com/owb.htm

    The UBG is a steal at $70 IMO. It's very nicely made and turnaround is only a few weeks (I have a Regulator for my G27 and one for my HK P7). It's similar to an Alessi CQC-S which is what I originally wanted but dropped off the waiting list after 13 months.

    I've used a lot of holsters with mine. Here's the ones I liked. IWB: MTAC, Kramer #3, Blade Tech NANO. OWB: RCS Phantom, Comp Tac paddle, Ritchie CQQR, Kramer Belt Scabbard.

    I carry my 26 in a Crossbreed Supertuck. It also works fine for my 19.

    I carry a g27 owb in an X-Concealment 'C' type holster. No problem concealing with an un-tucked t-shirt or golf shirt.

    I was actually going to ask if that would work. I have a G26 and plan to get a G23 soon, and was wondering if I order a CBST or a White Hat holster (same thing as CBST) if it would fit both guns. Looks like it will.

    Try the Glock holster until you find the one you want,I have 2 of them,one for my 26 and 19,and one for my 21.They hold up against the body very nicely and conceal pretty darn good.
