    Best holster for Glock 26?

    Hey,

    I'm buying a Glock 26 soon for off-duty carry. What are the best holsters for it? All recommendations are welcome.

    Thanks in advance!

    Good question, but you will hate my answer. Get the holster you are most comfortable with and serves the best purpose. What type of clothing you wear, where you want it (small of back, inside wasteband, on a belt etc). And don't forget Department policy if there is one on the "safety" aspects of the holster. For example my department requires off duty carry be in a "secure" holster, attached to a belt etc with at least one safety process required to unholster (snap,thumb break etc.) Most of us "ignore" the requirement but I still recommend following protocall.

    See if some LEOs will let you "test" whar they carry their G26 in, and see if you can find a LEO supply store that will let you "inspect" their holsters etc.

    I carry a Springfield off duty, never owned a G26 but the LEOs I know prefer the new "StickyHolster". Yep, its actually called the STICKYHOLSTER.

    One more thing, be sure to video you asking your buddies to "test" their "thunder ware" and post the video!

    The Serpa's are ok for the G26. I have the G27. Due to the size of these guns most holsters will make them fairly concealable, even in a t-shirt. Like CPL said, I would encourage you to go try some out.

    Sorry Hutchins, but those things are junk. Why buy a $500 gun and then trust a $25 POS to retain it. Those things can be pulled apart in a heart-beat... not even considering how those rivet points wear out.

    Anywho, I have had several holsters for my G27 and by far, the best thing I have come across is the comp-tac minotaur. As long as you don't mind inside the pants, it is amazing. It has all the benefits of kydex (doesn't collapse and is easy to reholster), while having the comfort of leather against the skin. It's even tuckable. Look here to see it.

    I second the poopoo of the Fobus. I have found the most comfortable, for me, iwb holster is the Galco King Tuk. The are sold online AND in stores.

    If you're carrying off duty, and you don't have to have a retention strap for off duty carry, I would recommend the Bladetech IWB. I really like it (more detail in link).

    I just started using a Raven Concealment Systems Phantom holster and I love it. Its extremely well made and modular, you can go from outside the waistband to inside the waistband carry by changing out two pieces in about 3 minutes. There is no retention however so definitely check with department SOP first.
