    Need some suggestions please. My wifes friend has a g26 for ccw. She states that she prefers IWB carry as she doesn't trust the off body purse idea. She will need a holster that she can take off and put on as needed due to the fact that she visits many city municipalities for her business. Her preference is appendix carry. Size description would be normal figure about 5'8" with a healthy size waist. Not fat mind you, but well loved and home grown. Any holster suggestions and experiences with appendix carry would be great. Thanks for your help and input.:wavey:

    Given the requirements you outlined, I would suggest the "Tito's Revenge" by Mitch Rosen Gunleather.

    At $215 it's pretty spendy, but IMO you get what you pay for, and Rosen's stuff is worth it.

    Note that the Tito's Revenge is listed under Product Line | Holsters | Slimline Holsters

    Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

    On the edge but not quite over ...
    First, I am not a woman. However, I have carried IWB, and OWB, and would like to contribute.

    First, a +1 on Mitch Rosen's work. Spendy but worth it.

    Second, I know it should be common sense but it's not that for IWB to be do-able the pant waist must be large enough to accomodate the gun and holster. Too many will try to jam the gun/holster down, resulting in pants-too-tight and carry not comfy. Depending on gun/holster size, the pants might be too loose when the gun is removed, and tightening the belt to hold up your trou is just not the way to fashion.

    I have a Bianchi Professional (100) Model for my 26. With the appendix carry preference, I'd suggest it. With minimal practice, it slips on and off with no trouble at all.

    While I am still fairly slimish figured, I still have to be a little wary of printing beings as the ladies' shirts are pretty form fitting, and glocks are just not curvy. Depending on her work attire, she may have no problem at all with this.

    Do you have a pic of the 26 in that bianchi professional 100? I'm considering it and am just wondering how low/high the 26/27/33 will sit in it.

    Scroll down to post #7 (I don't have any pictures handy at the moment, but can get a couple eventually here. It isn't a very low riding holster. If you can see/compare - the top of the clip is the top of your belt line.

    If you still can't totally tell, unload your baby glock, check, and recheck that it is empty, and then draw an imaginary line from the middle of the extractor to the pack of the curvy part of the the trigger. That is how low (well, high) mine rides.
