Or just carry a G19 or other larger pistol.
That seems to be the opinion of a lot of people on the matter, but if you actually compare side-by-side a G19 with standard mag and a G26 with the +2, you'll find that there is a significant difference in size. So for the person who wants something smaller than the 19, but wants somewhere to put their pinky or wants a few more rounds, the G26 with +2 can be a nice compromise.
That being said, I think using a standard mag, as many have suggested, would help my problem immensely. I'm just not sure if I feel comfortable with gripping the gun without somewhere for my pinky. Gonna have to do a little more shooting and handling with the standard mag in.
And to those who say not to worry about it, I'm really not worried about a little printing, but it was BAD. I adjusted the holster for a little more cant and that helped but it was still very noticeable.
Also, thanks everyone for your suggestions. I wish I could move it further forward but I'm a pretty thin guy, and any further forward would make the back of the slide stick out in front of my stomach.
