    Yup, but both are doable.

    Yes it would. The subcompact glocks just aren't that comfortable to carry IMO.

    when I carry my 642 IWB is is generally at the appendix position and it works very well there!

    Never carried a G26 before but I would imagine it would be a little more uncomfortable than the 642

    I carry a 442 or a G27 at AIWB. Desbien Gunleather's IWB #4 is perfect for it. The 442 is much more comfortable due to it's design.

    Of those two weapons, I don't think one has any advantage. It depends on what YOU feel more about carrying.
    Either would work...if you like CCW that way.

    I appendix carry my G27 comfortably with a C-Tac IWB holster. I don't have an IWB holster for my 442, yet, but I would think it is as comfortable. I think an important factor to consider is the holster/belt combo.
