    Question What is the best holster for a woman to carry a Glock 26 Gen 4 in a car?

    I just purchased a Glock 26 Gen 4 and thought I wanted a Mic holster after great reviews online but one thing is holding me back. I read that it is not a good idea to leave it in a hot car for an extended period of time because it could damage the holster. That is where I intend to carry my gun for personal protection in case my car breaks down in a compromising area or on the highway. So, now I'm back to square one. Any holster recommendations?

    So you are not going to carry on your person then. A kydex holster will do. Use the door pocket. Me I won't leave a weapon in the car unsecured. One broken window and the gun is gone.
    I ordered kydex sheets to make my own and it will be secured inside the door pocket. I can place gun for easy get to while I am in the car.

    I would highly recommend against keeping a gun in the car. Keep the firearm on her person.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    I would also suggest a holster to carry on your person; there are a ton of holsters that fit the G26. If you don't want to have it on your person while driving, or if you really want to leave it in the car, then I would suggest any inexpensive nylon holster with some sort of retention system.

    That's worth repeating. I too would highly recommend against keeping a gun in the car. Keep the firearm on your person. As for the Highnoon holsters, I have a couple, great holsters, however. My kids had kids and now I'm a grandfather, I ordered my Highnoon holsters in 8th grade and after my second grandchild became 7 years old my holsters finally arrived. Not recommended if you're middle age and approaching retirement. If you're adapted to "hurry up and wait" you might be good to go?

    First get her a Springfield XD to keep on her person and a SecureIt type gun safe to secure under the seat if the need to dis arm to enter a no gun area.

    like previous posters, i would not leave my gun in my car while i went elsewhere, and i recommend you not do it either.

    as to a good holster to wear while driving, try a crossdraw holster (assuming you are right-handed). such a design can be comfortable enough for a woman to carry a gun everywhere, with a covering garment.

    if you are left-handed, a hip holster which carries the gun between 9:00 and 7:30 should work - might try a Kramer or Blade Tech Woman's holster, which lowers the holster and cants it out just a bit for a better match to a woman's body shape.

    The only way I would consider leaving a gun in the car long term is if I had a small safe permanently installed in the car. And not one of those safes with a little cable either, I'd want the safe welded, bolted (with tamper-proof hardware), or chained to the car.

    And I'd still want to carry on-person.

    Like most others here, I caution you against storing your pistol in the car. It won't do much to protect you when you don't have it. I strongly suggest you keep it on your person if at all possible. However, I understand the discomfort of a pistol on your hip on long car trips. I've been known to keep a crumpled old fast food bag under the seat with a cheap-o holster in it. If I'm driving for long periods, I'll "disarm" myself and place my pistol in the bag on the passenger seat. Easy access and hidden in plain sight (matches the rest of the decor of my car to boot, thanks kids ).

    If you must leave your pistol behind (say, if you have to go to the post office, a school, or other "gun free zone"), I suggest a good car safe, bolted down if at all possible, out of sight.

    There is no such thing as the "best holster" for anybody. Try different holsters and find one that fits you comfortably. It may not be the best for your next door neighbor but if it suits you, go for it.

    I personally am not a fan of molded plastic holsters because there is no give in them, but many people like Kydex and other products and who am I to argue?

    A few years ago, when I was working on a magazine article, Greg Kramer put together a horsehide rig for me that was originally designed for women, and I still hav that rig today, though I normally pack a piece in my own T-BAR II executive holster (D&D Gunleather). Mitch Rosen also makes a good rig for women.

    I think it behooves anyone to try a few different holster models, and to own more than one holster for a pistol to meet the requirements of different circumstances.

    The 'Mic" holster is a minimalist rig that just covers the trigger guard. You carry with the gun in your pants over your appendix. You will probably not find this very comfortable on long drives and it will severely limit your wardrobe.

    There is no one 'right' holster. You could end up with a drawer full with models that you wear on different occasions with different clothes. At least take a look at Remora holsters that can function as IWB or pocket or purse holders and are very inexpensive: Home of the Original Remora No Clip IWB Concealment Holster

    Talk to Sheryl at Garrett Industries about their very nice and functional holsters - she can give you a woman's insight. Garrett Industries, LLC Designers/Manufacturers of Custom Kydex and Leather Holsters and Tactical Gear or via email at mailto:garrett@giholsters.com

    And be sure to read RUNWAY RUNDOWN : THE ORGANIZATION AND HOLSTER LINE-UP AT THE CC HOLSTER FASHION SHOW

    I am quite sure, like the most of us, she will accumulate and a box of well recommended hardly used holsters before she finds the almost perfect fit.

    I'm old enough to know I need more info before I can give any advise. Are you looking for a holster to leave in the car to slip the gun into while driving? Or are you planning on carrying the holster on your body while driving? Are you planning on leaving the gun in the car or will you be taking it with you?
