    I carry a G26 in a pants pocket occasionally. It has the same exact dimensions as a G27.

    Use a good pocket holster designed for a G27 (mine is custom made for me), and don't expect it to be a fast draw.

    It will not work with tight jeans. I use mine with casual slacks, suits, or cargo pants or cargo shorts.

    The "Mega Holster" link will provide a lot of quality options!

    I carry a G26 as well but I found that it's a little big for me to carry in my front pocket. Just shows how everyone is different. ha!

    You might try DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster

    The Nemesis

    I order one for the P3 AT and Walther PPKs, and they just came in today. They fit great and seem to work well in shorts pockets.

    I think Iíll take it for a spin to the store.

    I had a G27. There is no way I would have consistently carried it in my front pocket.

    i hate to sound like a parrot but Mika's pocket holster for a 26/27 is incredible. it makes the 26 feel much more comfortable in your pocket and it has a nice design which keeps the holster in your pocket when you draw. i have 3 of these pocket holsters for my j frames and decided to try one for a 26, it really works! My son is using it for a backup holster so no pics...sorry. maybe someone else will chime in with a pic.

    I have carried a G27 in a pocket holster in my front pocket. If the pants were baggy, it didn't print very much. It took a little more effort to draw from the pocket though.

    I sure couldn't do it in my jeans. Maybe with a good pocket holster in pleated pants or cargos but I think it'd still be kind of heavy.

    I carry my g27 in my front right pocket nearly everyday, in fact I just took it out. It works fine for me. I wear pretty baggy cargo pants so I don't have a problem at all. The shape and depth of the pocket and the size of the opening makes big differences. If my radar pings a little I just casually put my hands in my pocket and I'm ready. In that posture I can draw pretty fast........the pants and pockets are the key to it working for you.

    mika pocket holster, cargo/camp type pants with big baggy front pocket. Don't even think about drawing that from a pair of levis.

    I have a Glock 27 and there is no way I can carry in front pocket - even with baggy pants. That is the reason I also have a Kel-Tec PF9 - and for some pants it does not work in pocket carry. That is a lot of weight and thickness in the front pocket. jmo

    You'll need a good sized pocket for sure. That style of carry doesn't work for me with my G27.

    I make a sub-compact Glock pocket holster that is not much if any bigger than my j-frame holsters. I designed it to be the smallest size possible to fit in jeans, but to also do it's job.

    I can get the gun/holster in my jean pockets, but have issues actually drawing the gun because of space.

    Here is a picture of one on top of a pile of J-frame and NAA holsters.....
