    need some help with my edc please?

    hello all i currently have a g26 with a minotaur spartan holster, this is most least carried weapon i own it just isnt comfortable but id like it to be. i have a S&W 442 i love with a high noon mister softy. this gets quite a bit of carry. finaly my kel tec p32 in a uncle mikes pocket holster gets carried everyday. i would like to have more power than the 32 but its so easy to carry and pocket carry with the other two is impossible for me. does anyone have any advice or help.

    How about .380 or small 9mm? Personally I like 9mm better.

    9mm
    Kahr CW9 (I have one and love it)
    Kahr PM9 (want one)
    Walther PPS
    Taurus 709 (personally this one is not on my list of what I'd get).

    .380
    Kahr P380

    Before I spent the money on a new gun, I think I would try a few different holsters for my G26.

    I found that if one of my guns is uncomfortable, it's usually the way I'm carrying or the style of holster.

    Kahr CW 9 or 40. Compact with a kick. Easy to hide as well.
    Best Regards from Minnesota,

    The Glock 26 is a great weapon, but for me IWB isn't an option. Unless I lose some weight, it is just too thick to work for me. However, SS belt carry, even pocket carry with cargo pants, SOB (not the fastest draw), but when not seated a lot, I can conceal there easily, and even ankle carry all work for me with my G26.
    Yes, the G26 is big and somewhat heavy for pocket and ankle carry, but it works. And it's comfortable. I can IWB my PT709, or my P64 with no issues...but the Glock just doesn't ride there well for me.
    Try out some alternative holsters. Guns and people aren't all the same, so we have to experiment to find out what works for us, and sometimes that means investing in some different carry rigs. I did get a Desantis ankle holster for the G26, not the molded leather one but the Apache, and it fits several of my guns really well: the GLock, the PT709, the P64...all in the same rig!
    Keep at it until you find the right rig for you and your gun... the answer is not necessarily changing your gun, but finding the right carry rig.

    Nothing wrong with the G-26 for IWB carry, I've done it many times. the key is in getting the right holster for you.

    Here's what I used:

    Milt Sparks VM-II The other holster is also a Milt Sparks, OWB.

    If the G26 doesn't work for ya, then I don't know what will.

    what makes it uncomfortable? Do you have a gun belt?

    Have you tried different positions and/or cants?

    Perhaps your circumference isn't IWB friendly, take a look at SmartCarry

    Or, why not another Mr. Softy for your Glock?

    i think the mr softy is what im gonna try i realy like it for my smith. i dont have a gun belt but a good leather 1 1/2 inch belt. i guess i just havent given it a chance realy as the p32 is just so easy to throw in my pocket il give it a better chance and see what happens what positions are you all carrying your g26 at.

    I have a Kel Tec PF 9, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. I put 300 rounds through it the day I got it, and only had a couple of FTF's that were magazine related, not gun related. The little guy has been awesome for me as a pocket/ ankle gun, and it is not nearly as snappy as some of the Kahr's I've shot. Mine prefers Federal 124 +P's and it goes everywhere I go (even when I went on vacation to NYC!)

    You'll find, with a little effort, that the G26 is one of the best concealed carry pistols.

    I carry a G23 in a SuperTuck, a little similar to your Minotaur, and never have any discomfort.
