    Who pocket carries a Baby Glock???

    I have been looking for a pocket pistol and am probably going to buy a J frame. Bugt for various reasons I wont go into...I could be convinced by the idea of a Baby Glock in a pocket carry situation. Anbody else do this?? or is it just a little too fat and bulky to be practical?

    In my view it is too thick and heavy for pocket carry. However, some do it without problems. My son has a friend who is a Fed, and the last time he came over he had one in an ankle holster. I did not notice it as the legs on his pants were rather loose, but not excessively so. I had always considered that ankle carry of a G 26 would not work well.
    He did look longingly at my Kahr P9, however.

    You might find pocket carry with the G26 OK, but not for me.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    I have the Glock-26 and the Glock-36. Both are small, but not small enough to put into my pocket...OMO

    I'm not a Glock fan.

    Have a look at the Sig P237 or better yet the Walther PPS, my choice for summer and outside the car.

    Inside the car,
    I carry a Sig P250.

    For pocket, I recommend the Biretta .32 Tomcat.

    I just got a Glock 26 today and as i was walking around the house looking for some tools to add my +2 to one of the mags, i put the g26 with a loaded mag in my back pocket and within minutes, I had forgotten it was in there. Obviously a coat pocket would be even more unnoticable.

    Anyway, I'll be carrying it in my bellyband from now on and that should be fine through summer here. And coming from a M&P9 full size in that bellyband to this G26...wow...so natural to conceal that thing comfortably.

    I'd love to see the size of your pockets!!! I sold my Glock 27 when I purchased my S&W J Frames for pocket / ankle carry. Frankly, I'd rather carry a brick in my pocket. I don't think the baby Glocks are practical for pocket carry unless you wear you baggy pants at your knees like some people I've seen.

    On the other hand, I think you're on the right track picking up a J Frame for pocket carry.

    I pocket carry a S&W CS45 often. Front pocket. The Baby Glock shouldn't be any more difficult.

    I find mine are too big/ heavy for pocket carry. Can do it with large cargo pocket and a very tight belt when doing yard work. Otherwise it won't fit in my pocket and tends to weigh down my pants. I much prefer LCP, Keltecs or SW J frame.

    I carry my G-26 with comp barrel in the front pocket of "cargo pants" in a pocket holster with no problem, and I am 5' 8" 145 lbs.
    In jeans, no way.

    I carry my G26 in both a pocket, and an ankle holster. You just have to dress for the occasion, like any other time you carry.

    Likewise, except for that comp barrel and weight thing........ Call me "155". I also carry that way in dress slacks (pleated) and with suit pants. I sometimes slip my G26 in a holster, in my back (wallet) jeans pocket.

    I also pocket carry my G26 in the inside pocket in a Wrangler jean jacket, in a CC vest, as well as cargo shorts, or 5.11's, as well as various coat pockets.

    I prefer the j frame in my pocket, with lose or cargo pants. My G27 is a little too heavy and blocky to carry in my pocket.

    I have the G27. Don't purchase one for pocket carry - you will be disappointed at how difficult it will be. For pocket carry I went with a Kel-Tec PF9. The PF9 fits the bill in many ways. Plenty of pocket guns - but the baby Glocks are not really a pocket gun in my opinion.

    You can do it with large cargo style pants/shorts that have large pockets. I don't pocket carry my G27 but I have experimented a little with it around the house and I could do it if I wanted. My advice, if you want to pocket carry get something smaller.

    I sometimes carry a 27 in a Bullard IWB clip style holster in my back pocket (clipped on pocket) if I'm not going to be doing much sitting. My 642 is much easier to slip into a front pocket (in a pocket holster).
