Yup, but both are doable.
This is a discussion on S&W 642 vs Glock 26 appendix within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Would a S&W 642 be easier to carry in the appendix position over a Glock 26?...
Would a S&W 642 be easier to carry in the appendix position over a Glock 26?
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.
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
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.
