    I've been on the search for the right holster for my 43. I've come across posts in my search saying people have no problem concealing it. I'm having a bit of issue with my 43. I'm pretty lanky, 5'9. Maybe 140. Anyone else have these issues like me? Hard to conceal a concealable gun?

    Take a look at the #3 of Kramer Leather, my G36 works in that one well.

    I'm confused. You talking about concealing a 26 or a 43?

    Are you using an IWB or OWB holster? Big difference between the two methods.

    Nobody is skinnier than me. I tote a G43 constantly. IWB kydex. Or a 26. I don't get it.

    Yeah, g43 is what I've tried to conceal so far with a remora. I'd like to try to conceal the 26 too, but I guess I just need to try different things to see what works

    6' 155lbs of skin and bones here and have zero difficulty concealing a G26 in a leather/kydex hybrid with just an untucked t-shirt.

    you probably worried too much about printing a little. Everyone is looking at their phones not you. People are clueless

    I carry a Glock 27 and a Glock 22 in an Alien Gear IWB or OWB holster with no problem. 5'8" 170 and mostly wear jeans and a T-shirt.

    Ding-ding-ding, we have a winner! Couldn't be any simpler!

    Don't listen to the naysayers; the 26 is only .16" thicker than the 43. Yes, .16", thats it. And the 43 is actually slightly taller than the 26. Those who say the 26 just feels like a brick compared to a 43 likely haven't tried it.

    Just get a good Kydex holster and don't look back. Cook's comes to mind.
