Holster fit for G26
I've got a Don Hume JIT slide for just about every gun we have. I like these holsters. Inexpensive, light, small, comfortable carry, and easy to conceal with, however, there seems to be a problem with the one for my Glock(s). Unless there is a slightly different model for a G19 vs G26, this one is not working for both. The G19 works fine in the holster. Draws without any problems. The G26 on the other hand is a pain to draw from this holster. It seems the front edge (closest to the muzzle) of the ejection port really grabs/drags coming out of the holster, causing it to tilt/cant the gun making it harder to draw.
Needless to say, no way I'm going to carry this gun in this holster.
I have a Galco M5X paddle holster for the G26 also. Fits nice, good retention, draws nice, doesn't sit too far out from your body so to make it hard to conceal, BUT.. the paddle starts to wear on you after a while, pinching and such. Not something the most comfortable to wear for extended periods.
I don't want to spend $50+ for a holster for this gun since it's not normally my primary carry gun, but would like to carry it from time to time. Hate to spend much on a holster in the first place just to "try" it, then be stuck with it, if it doesn't work out for me.
I'm considering a Galco M7X: CopsPlus.com: Galco Holsters M7X Matrix Belt Slide Holster
or a Galco Tac Slide: CopsPlus.com: Galco Holsters Tac Slide Belt Holster
Edit: BTW I don't like IWB holsters. Belt holsters only.
I'd give Comp-Tac a try. You can pick up new ones for ~$60. There's also plenty of used one Ebay and other forums as well.
I've also had good luck with Sidearmor, Bladetech, and Raven as well....all OWB. The Raven has a longgggg wait and is a bit more pricey than the others.
+1 For Comp-Tac. Excellent company, excellent products.
Grandfather oak holsters
Go to grandfatheroak.com and look at constant companion or the newer belt holster. Most reasonable cost for a very well though out holster with excellent construction. Go their first and it will be the place you stay.
I have a cheap fobus belt holster for my g19 and I know a 26 fits as well. It's kydex and cost $20

I have an M7X for my G26. I was truly surprised at the quality, fit and retention. The M7X holds the gun tightly against your body. The belt straps are nice and snug on the belt and help hold the holster in place. It's a great quick on holster, for a quick trip to the store, etc... Overall, it's a good holster for what it is and what it's isn't...
