IWB holster under $50?

I'm new to CCW and looking for a IWB holster that will work fine with pants, shorts and even my gym shorts that have elastic waist band. I am using a generation 3 G26 and plan to store an additional mag in my pocket. The only ones that I could find that fit my budget is the Bianchi Model 6D ATB which comes in a old western poop brown color.

Carry Issues

any other suggestions? It will be used all season round

Have you looked in the want ads section of this forum. They have a number options in the $50.00 range or less. IWB holsters need to be stiff enough that the holster does not collapse and you can re-holster without great effort. The following link is just one example. http://glocktalk.com/classifieds/sho...holsters&cat=8 You will find a number of reasonable holsters in the want ad section.

For a holster to perform properly, you need a gunbelt. If you're not going to wear a belt, you'll need a belly band or waistpack. Even with a belt, single clip holsters generally don't perform well (easily dislodged, "roll" up and out of the waistband fairly easily. A proper holster is stable, and does not need to be adjusted or repositioned repeatedly while worn. My suggestion is to start wearing shorts with a belt, or use an internal belt.

a little over your price your price but worth it

use a belt with the j-hook

it is the most adjustable- thinest one

+1 on the gunbelt. You can spend $200 on a holster and it wont mean ***** without a good stiff belt to support/distribute the weight of the gun. As for the holster, check out shieldedholsters.com. Kurtis is a member here, and makes a good quality leather/kydex IWB holster that comes in at $50 shipped I believe. I have two of them, and I couldnt be happier. And you will have it in a week or so.

+1 on the gunbelt --my own personal experience is that Don Hume makes a great leather iwb holster w/metal clip under $50. http://www.gunnersalley.com/

no way the elastic band on gym shorts is going to support a G26. You will also most likely want a holster with some forward cant.

I agree...I wear shorts w/o a belt and polo shirts 99% of the time. The Remora stays put without a belt.

I was skeptical of the Remora holsters...so I ordered one....they work. I was surprised. For IWB carrying, I use the Remora. I've had mine for about a month or so.

Try this out. I love mine. You don't need a belt and I have worn it in gym shorts with my G36.

I have been using a Kholster IWB for my G22 and for my Colt 38 Spl. Comfortable and secure. The clips that hold it on the belt are spaced far apart and gives stability.

When I carried a G19 I used a C-Tac or Infidel, which are above the requested price.
Now that I am old timer, I use a generic Remora to carry a G17 or CZ75 SP01 Shadow with excellent results.
