    IWB for a glock26

    Hi, I am looking for an IWB for my little glock. I would like it to have this tuckable feature I hear so much about. I would like to wear it about at 3:30 or 4 position. Does anyone have any knowledge or even pics they might be able to share ?
    thanks.

    Well - no specific but - go check out the K&D site http://www.kdholsters.com/

    In fact go to top of page and use the ''Holster Links'' link - I put a page up not long ago with 130 plus links - might be worth a cruise thru some of those too.

    talon, while I don't have experience with it, a friend says good things about this "tuckable" Galco holster: http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterG3.asp...D=300&GunID=50

    I have an IWB on order for my G-26, a Milt Sparks Watch Six. It's not a tuckable design, but should have it by mid-month so surely will have some feedback to share within a week of laying my hands on it. Hopefully it will be all good news!

    I carry my G30 in that Galco tuckable at work all day. Pretty comfy and invisible. Was worth every bit of $60.
    I'm sure the G26 model would be an even better fit.
    If you get it please post how it works as I'm in the market for a holster or 2 for my G26 now too

    Here is a picture of my G27 (on the left) in a Comp-Tac CTAC holster. It works very well and is tuckable.

    I have heard good things about the C-TAC. I have been told by others that leather is more comfortable for IWB, which makes sense. My friend has the Milt Sparks Summer Special that he likes, but I don't know if it is tuckable. Check out the holster offerings from the members on this board, as I have seen lots of impressive stuff and I'm sure they can help you.

    Thanks everyone. I am looking at that Galco holster. I currently have a nice owb bianchi with great retention features for this pistol, but with my body I need a jacket over it. Thus I have not carried the glock during warmer months. I could use a holster I have for another piece, but really was interested to see if there was one that was fitted for the glock.

    You may look at the Galco "Summer Comfort" as well....
    not a Tuckable, but very comfortable just the same...

    I think youll find better comfort carrying the little glock with a split loop design holster....the short muzzle with the width of the fat little glock is much better carried in a VM2/MC5 style holster, it makes it much thinner to carry and much more comfy....keep you eyes peeled and see what you like. Every maker makes most all of their stuff for the baby glock.

    www.hbeleatherworks.com makes some fine holsters; while I haven't used their units for the baby glock, I can vouch for the efficiency/comfort of Kramer's IWB#3 unit - my 26 feels like it's not there while in it.

    Eric, I guess this may seem like a silly question, but don't the loops show on the belt really well ? Oh, the holster would not be tuckable would it? That still might be okay, if it held the glock close to my body. I am just looking to change my wardrobe to some slightly smaller/lighter shirts so that I do not continue to have this steady diet of oversized cotton shirts everyday during these warmer months. I guess that is why I thought tuckable might be a nice change of pace.

    Check out Highnoon holsters (highnoonholsters.com). They make great holsters and have good "tuckables." In addition, they have the best pictures of their holsters IMO, I have not found a dealer that does pictures from so many angles.

    Good Luck

    I have seen several people on this forum also getting holsters from www.garritysgunleather.com . I have not personally purchased from there, but he does make very nice custom holsters from standard leather to alligator to snake, and I have heard many good things about it. Probably worth checking out in addition with the sites mentioned above.

    Well yes and no. I missed the tuckable part...the loops dont show on the belt if they are sized to the width and color of the belt initially.

    As far as the style of holster you may want to look at..the split loops really make it thinner and more comfy.
    Take into consideration: with a large/thin/flat/long gun IE, 1911 etc, the bulkiness or width is less and its spread out over more of an area.
    With the baby Glock its width is in a very small area and not nearly as spread out...Thus the recommendation.

    Look for something with a stitched and elongated bottom also. This will add stability and comfort. Tuckables in this configuration can be found...I you cant find what you are looking for then yell at me. Thanks..Eric
