Paddle Holster for G26

3284 Views 34 Replies 28 Participants Last post by  rangerparked
Picked up a new G26 yesterday, so I'm a Glock owner again. Anyways, I used to get all my holsters from El Paso Saddlery but I heard they are not the company they used to be. So I am in the market for a leather paddle holster. Must have a thumbsnap as this will be used in a farming/outdoor environment.

Open to suggestions, thank you!

Please, do explain.
In training, it is common for the holster to come along with the gun during a draw. Also, in an entanglement, paddle holsters are known to come off the body or be knocked loose. 3rd, it is not hard to disarm somebody wearing a paddle holster.

While they may be convenient and easy, using them for anything serious is generally ill advised. I know they feel nice and secure when you put one on, but they are one of the least secure methods of carry, especially the cheaper ones like a fobus. Don't take my word for it though. Take a good class or see what well known, highly regarded instructors have to say.

The above does not apply for carry around the house or doing chores on the farm. For that, it doesn't really matter.
