    Need Glock 26 holster advice

    I have a Glock 26 purchased for CCW. I live in Florida in a shorts and tee shirt climate. Any suggestions for a good concealment holster? Does anyone carry the G26 in a front pocket holster? Thanks.

    IMO the G26 is too large for pocket carry. I carry my G27 (same exact size as 26) in an MTAC IWB holster. It's been warm in NY the last few weeks and I've been wearing jeans and a t-shirt. The MTAC conceals the G27 very well, and it is extremely comfortable for extended periods of time.

    Good luck.

    Check out the De Santis 'Scorpion' IWB holster. I just can't say enough good things about mine. I use it every day.

    I agree... except I carry OWB mainly. IMO OWB is more comfortable, and very easy to conceal under a t-shirt.

    With all due respect to the VersaMax II, it's not adjustable. IMO the top two IWB's are the MTAC and the K&D IWB Defender series.

    I carry my G-27 in a VM-II IWB under a tee shirt. I've never needed to do any adjusting. (of the holster I mean)

    A Crossbreed IWB works well. I do wear a shirt which is a bit loose to prevent any printing and I like to wear the tails out but that's just my style.

    My Smartcarry does the best job with shorts. My Glock 26 simply disappears when I'm wearing them. It's also a very comfortable way to carry.

    The Mitch Rosen Upper Limit express model is a good OWB option... The express line can be had in about three weeks.

    For IWB, Eric Larson at HBE is only running about two weeks when I spoke to him Saturday, so that would be a good option too...

    I carry a G26 in a custom made pocket holster. It is specifically for cargo shorts with big deep pockets. I have also used it with business suits, as well as casual slacks.

    Here's a picture of my rough side out holster:

    It depends on where you want to carry it. For typical hip carry, I'd go with an MTAC. For appendix carry, High Noon Mr Softy. It's $30, with a money back guarantee & you can have it in a week.

    This man speaks the truth. Adjustability = comfort in my opinion.

    "It's super comfortable!" Yeah, but I can only carry it at 4-5:00 due to design. I like versatility and the "fits just right" adjustability of the MTAC.

    My favorite holster for my G26 is K&D Laredo Defender. I like it so well I ordered one for my SA LWSS Compact. I don't really need it, but like the ease of putting it on and taking it off.

    As I have posted elsewhere I prefer OWB, and do not find it difficult to conceal under an untucked sport shirt.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    +1 on the Smart Carry Holster. Its perfect for the hot weather in Florida because you can wear shorts easily with it and also have no shirt on. Here is a good review of it with a Glock26 by someone on youtube.

    +1 on the MTAC and K&D. I live just on the other side of the Flordia border in Georgia. My MTAC is by far the most comfortable concealment holster.....being tuckable is a BIG bonus. In shorts and a tee or dressed up my sidearm dissappears in the MTAC. My K&D is an OWB and serves as a secondary carry medium, but I love it!

    Never really found a rig I liked for my 26, ended up using it as a BUG pocket carrying in an M-65 Field Jacket. Too thick and bulky even for pocket carry in a biker style jacket (I'm getting a PM9, which is what the 26 should have been) as a primary I can carry my 19 about as easily.

    I did have a Galco IWB years ago that was decent for Appendix carry.... I think if I were to try it as a primary, I'd go that way or try cargo pocket or standard IWB.

    An ankle rig might work well with it too.
