I carry a G27 in the front pocket. I use a DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster and I would not use anything else or carry anywhere else. Works for me.
I have a Glock 27 and use the Crossbreed Supertuck, extremely comfortable during the summer with shorts that are one size larger then you normally wear. Do some checking on it, many people have a large box of holsters and this is the one that they prefer the most. I also use the Smart Carry and find it extremely comfortable with the 26/27 size. It works well with summer athletic shorts when there is really no other way to carry. Do your studying because there is no perfect holster!
Mitch Rosen Upper Limit is the best OWB holster for a baby Glock IMO.
Has anyone that is interested in pocket or cargo pocket carry tried this holster?
The IWB/OWB doesn't really work for me, since I always tuck in my shirt. I'm not really concerned about a quick draw, I just want to have my G26 with me.
I use a Super-Tuck Deluxe IWB holster from Cross Breed for my Glock 26. It has a wide leather panel that fits up against your body for comfort. The outer part is a rigid plastic, Kydex I think. This holster only adds about 1/4 inch to the thickness of the gun so that helps with concealment. Its also possible to tuck in your shirt with this holster although its a bit difficult to do. The 4:00 position works best for me. I would suggest that you order the combat grip. Total cost is about $80.
This is the best setup for me that I've discovered so far, but I'm always on the lookout for something better. IWb adds about 1-2 inches to your pant size and belt size.
I've heard of one or two cases of a Glock firing while being holstered. (I don't know what kind of holster was used.) Possibly clothing was hanging over the side of the holster which bunched up under the trigger and safety. I would suggest being very careful when holstering a Glock.
- Prevents accidental discharges
- The added psychological factor of the bad guy hearing and seeing me rack the slide (it seems to work well for shotguns)
- If the bad guy gets control of my weapon, I know there's not a round in the chamber, he doesn't. This gives me the edge when fighting to regain control of my weapon.
Edit: I have a change of heart and decided that considering all the variables, you're better off with one in the chamber. With the new styles of IWB/OWB holsters that use Kydex, I feel more secure with a round in the chamber of my Glock. I'm not sure I would ever go back to thumb break holsters again.
That's good info. I've carried both ways, one in the chamber or not. I like the idea of being able to grab the gun and bring it into play with one hand. But carrying a Glock in ready to fire condition and pointed in the general direction of my... tender parts... is a bit disquieting.
Ide stay away from the Extended Controls if i were you. I have them on my Duty weapon and even with my BlackHawk Serpa Holster, if notice depending on how i sit, ive accedentaly popped out a mag once or twice. As for IWB carry, i use a ClipDraw. Under any shirt, tank top, or whatever....
Subscribing to this thread... I'm of similar build to the OP & looking at the G26 to carry.
