View Full Version : Any holster recommendations for Gen 4 G26?

02-26-2012, 15:05
New to the forum but not to Glocks. My income tax refund should be coming in next week and I'll be picking up a Gen 4 G26. Does anyone carry this model on a regular basis? And if so, what type holster do you use?

I'm looking for a couple of options. Do those "tuckable" holsters actually allow you tuck your shirt over the holster and pistol, and does the shirt stay tucked?

I've also seen those under-the-shirt deep concealment holsters online. My question on those is, how easy is it to draw from under the shirt?

Any help/advise would be welcomed. Thanks.

right now I have my gen 3 g26 in a Blackhawk hip holster while I am waiting on a MIC holster and an IWB small of the back holster. the Blackhawk works well but it's not the most concealed holster I've had. The Mic holster is something that intrigues me, and the SOB is where I've carried the most.

I never attempt to tuck a shirt over my firearm...just feels goofy and impossible to draw quickly...
I do use a tuckable holster:

and a not-so-tuckable...but ultra-thin.
This is from Fist, Inc. and is IWB for G26/27

I'm in relatively the same boat you are. G26 or G27 on the horizon and I've been doing my research about IWB holsters. So far I have hear the most positive comments about the Crossbreed Supertuck (often abbreviated CBST around here), Comp-tac MTAC, and WhiteHat Holsters, and Remora. Let us know what you decided!

Yep, I use a tuck-able holster. Crossbreed Supertuck. 15-16 hrs a day don't even know its there.

Kydex does not deform when empty

Edit: to tuck a shirt over the holster the shirt goes between the holster clips and leather also over the kydex and weapon.

I'll also recommend the supertuck. The king tuck iwb holsters as well as theis holsters are all excellent quality and wear very comfortable & easy.

If your shirt is more than 4" below your waist line than any of these holsters will allow for complete concealment.

I have three that I use consistently.
I would start with a White Hat or CBST. I have both and prefer the White Hat. Comfortable and you can run tucked or untucketed. Get it fit a Glock 19 so it will fit the 26 as well. Gives you options with different guns and not have to duplicate holsters.
Next would be a Comptac Infidel. Fast on and and fast off for the days you are going places you can't carry. Good and safe. I can wear mine with gym shorts or running pants with elastic/drawnstring closure. Get the Slide Model as can go with the 19 or 26.
Last...always save the best for last..Milt Sparks Summer Special II. So comfortable. Again I would consider getting to fit a 19 and it will also fit a 26.

Glock Sport Combat holster for me!

I use the CBST everyday with my 26 or 19. Very comfortable.

02-26-2012, 20:54
I use a king tuk IWB. Tue when I get off work I'm going to pick up at Galco Ankle Glove, for certain occasions, as it seems like everyone who uses it likes it.

I use a Mitch Rosen Upper Limit as my primary way to carry by Glock 27 I love it. I actually got it from the guy that sold me the gun as he had no use for it. But its the best sub compact holster I have.

Best affordable holster for any Glock! But it's not tuckable like the OP wanted.

Com-Tac Minataur for me.
But, you might check in to using a pocket holster too.

I'm sure there are people who do it but the 26 by all accounts is too big for pocket carry.

Great CS, great price, great product.

This may be a little different answer. The Smart Carry holster:(
is a deep concealment holster. I use mine with elastic waistband pants (of all kinds) and T-shirts. I like it.

The owner / maker of the product shows carrying a 1911 with his shirt tucked in. I don't know how he does it but there's pictures on the site.

I also have a Remora that I just got yesterday and am still playing with it. It has the extra mag pocket and this is my G26 which I use in both holsters:

which one of these do you like best?

Use a Galco V-Hawk. Gives you IWB loops for belt as well as user installable j-hooks for tuckable option. Love the quality and look.

I am a college student, so unfortunately I can't carry all of the time. But when I can carry it is a Glock 27 in an X-Concealment "M" Holster, similar to the Raven Concealment modular kydex pancake holsters. I use Atomic Dog Holsters Tuckable IWB Soft Loops on it. I don't ever tuck my shirt in either but I love the way the holster sits and conceals under a t-shirt.

Have you tried the VersaCarry?
I got the Gen 2 model and it works! Secure and very fast on the draw!
This company has great CS as well!

where can I get a Raven Vanguard II from, their website says they arn't out yet.

02-28-2012, 17:33
Wirenut - I was able to preorder it a few weeks ago and was notified that it was shipped today. This is the link. Not sure if you can still do it. Good luck.

Another vote for the Crossbreed. Every gun carrier should have a hybrid IWB holster such as the crossbreed I believe, it's very comfortable and concealable.

As you progress with the Glock 26 through the years, you can always add more to your holster collection.

+1 Great guy!

I actually just received my tommy theis IWB holster today. I wore it for 5 1/2 hours tonight and it felt great. I can only imagine that once this thing breaks in it will only get better. First thing I noticed was the gun disappeared compared to my other IWB holsters. Seriously should give this guy a shot. I researched all of the "hybrid" holsters and this was honestly the best bang for the buck IMO.

Looks really nice

which one of these do you like best?

I am assuming you are referring to my Remora and my Smart Carry. I have had the SC longer and am used to it.The Remora is in day 3 of use so it'shard to say at this point. The SC can be turned 90 degrees I just tried and liked, so it will go deep concealment in front or plain IWB at 3 o'clock.

The Remora, because of the extra mag pocket, is more limited to 3 o'clock or thereabouts. Either is a good choice, IMO.
