TOF in 40 years I probably will but I won't let that get me down now.
Jeff when you say IWB holster I understand but with which pistol. you talking bout XD9sc in bi-tone or baby glock.
PS - don't lie
well I've held the xd9sc and if its really not that much diff than the glock. the glock23 had to short of a grip for me so the 26 will probably be worse for me. hope I figure this out.
or the right holster. I'm thinking I'm going to purchase a galco they seen to have the best ones out plus give a supporting company some business. any other suggestions for iwb holster.
P.S. - By the way, I charge 3 Black Talon 9mm rounds per reply. By my math, this brings me close to a box. Woohoo!
lol. you've been extremely helpful man. if you lived nearby I buy you a beer.
For pocket carry personally...go with a S&W Airweight .357
I'm not a fan of pocket carry though.
Get a good holster, a sturdy belt, and IWB carry your G26. Utterly reliable, powerful, in a lightweight and small package.
I'm an old guy and don't wear huge clothes but do like a little room. An IWB with an untucked shirt does a great job. I carry a Colt Officers ACP 1911or a Para Ord LTC in a Gould IWB and can do about anything I want except swim. Maybe some of those tampons..worked for my sister
With the cooler months looming my choices are a lot more. My Browning Pro-40 or one of my Sigs can go more into rotation then. I have shoulder holsters for 1911s and my Sigs as well as OWB holsters that hide a lot easier when it's not so warm.
resurecting dead thread here. anywho today I got to put my hands on some pistols. I got the feel for the xd9sc and love it but would have to do it without the factory grip extension. also got my hands on the glock 26 and it felt nice. then I picked up the khar pm9 and that was a fine pistol but the slide was a little stiff each of these were 525 or a little less. then I picked up the lcp and I could gotten it for 325 but passed on it. my thought are that imma wait a bit and see if what I'm really looking for come out in a few months if not ill go with the glock or the xd probably.
I really don't think it will either but it doesn't hurt to wish. I just couldn't spend the money today even though I got told to by the wife. I just couldn't make my mind up 100% today. anywho saved the money for another day.
P.S. - This puts me over a box now...
unfortunately not. there are 3 gun shops nearby and several pawn shops and an academy but no place to rent within 150 miles.
Since you are new to carry....might I suggest you forget about pocket carry all together until you've become more accustomed to carry period. Personally, I think pocket carry is a bad alternative. Take that from an open minded person who thinks that many options are always good to have.
i own the g26 and the ruger LCP
the ruger and the nemesis holster for my pants pocket
for tighter pants there is always the ankle holster
with it being light weight it isn't bad
the g26 is not a pants pocket gun - ankle would be fine
for my environment i don't feel like i need to carry more than a 380 speeer JHP
i shot several when i got it and now only 2 or 3 clips when i go to the range
then back to the g26 and my P22
Given the choice of a pocket gun and a slightly larger gun,I'll sacrifice a little in size for function.The pocket size are at least hard to handle and not very accurate,basiclly a very close range defensive gun.A slightly larger gun,for example,the g26,you've got some accuracy with some range and a higher rnd. capacity.If I could,I would carry both,I'm on a pretty tight budget and can only choose one.--G26 or the equivilent.
