Default Off Duty Carry Holster Glock 26

What would you recommend as the best off duty carry holster for a Glock 26. I would like to carry in a IWB holster. Also, any suggestions for a good ankle holster?

Thanks guys

consider the oldschool Alessi ankle holster made during the lifetime of the late gunleather guru, Lou Alessi. one can sometimes be found on the online auction circuit. i recommend the variant with retention strap that incorporates the pull-through snap closure. this type of snap closure does not require fiddling with the snap to unholster the weapon, but rather the user pulls the weapon from the holster with snap closed; by doing so, the snap releases and the weapon is unholstered. this is the same pull-through snap that Lou Alessi used with the IWB Hideout holster, Bodyguard shoulder holster and others.

the Alessi open-top ankle holster without retention strap is known for good retention of handgun, as is the ankle holster with retention strap. both styles are known for comfort, and the Alessi ankle holster is considered by many to be the standard by which others are measured. the Alessi ankle holster is well worth whatever effort is required to obtain one.

If you don't mind AIWB carry, which is quite comfortable and very concealable, try the HSP INCOG Holster. I carry a Glock 19 and a spare mag (with the mag caddy) with no problems.

As far as ankle holsters are concerned, I have no experience with them so I cannot help you on that.

I recently picked up a crossbreed IWB with combat cut and although I haven't wore it for an extended period (haven't applied for a CCW until we move next year) it feels quite comfortable wearing at around 4 o'clock. this is with a Glock 19 and is nearly not felt even with sitting down. there is a little bit of a wait, but I was able to find a good deal on eBay. if you don't want to wait, Alien Gear Holsters makes a similar product to crossbreed and is less.

All you guys that have tried and said that the Crossbreed Holster feels good should try this holster http://www.stealthgearusa.com/ I'm not saying that the Crossbreed is not good but what I'm saying is that the Stealthgear is way better designed! check out their website.

if you really want to go off the radar with a deep concealment setup you might want to consider the now obsolete Bianchi Ranger Belly Band. this is another one that you'd have to search for on the online auction circuit. you may not want to use the belly band in preference to an IWB or other concealment holster, but rather to employ it when the use of a more conventional type holster is not viable.

the Bianchi has a velcro assist closure on a rig that is made of a hearty nylon and usually comes in a tan color. it has numerous pouches onboard that are assisted with retention straps of nylon with velcro assist closure. the Bianchi will easily accommodate your G26 and 2 extra magazines, along with having a handcuff pouch built into the rig with snap closure. the rig doubles as a money belt and competently stores paper money that can be placed inside a wide opening along the front of the rig. your G26 and magazines will be firmly supported in this lightweight setup. the Bianchi has some flexibility of horizontal and vertical movement to your desired position; this flexibility of placement permits successful use for those with different body styles and weight differences.

if you carry at home, the Bianchi can work for you, regardless of what attire you choose to wear… or not wear; it's use is not dependent on a belt, or for that matter trousers either. you can safely wear the rig while in your pajamas, or less.

the only negative criticism i have for the Bianchi Ranger Belly Band is that the draw is slow, at best. that is because the rig is placed under a shirt and is assisted with retention strap closures to better stabilize the cargo it carries. the retention straps are removable, but i find that they greatly enhance the stability and retention of the weapon and magazines that are housed within.

there are many companies that make their own version of the belly band style rig today, including Galco and Gould & Goodrich. i like the Bianchi the best, and believe that the effort required to obtain one is well worth the benefit of ownership.

looks very similar to the crossbreed. I think I like the fact that it's not leather especially on a hot day. when I was browsing around for a holster, crossbreed just seemed to be the standard. i haven't seen any negative reviews and was lucky to find one on eBay for less than new and this wasn't worn and didn't have a 4-6 wait.

Minotaur MTAC, love it. Wear it in a two o'clock or four o'clock position and you will love it.

I own a CTAC for my G19 and forget it's there after a while (I prefer a 4 o'clock position). However, I have heard that the MTAC is even better.

Default Crossbreed Appendix or G-Code Incog



I have a crossbreed super tuck that works great for my Glock 19 at the 4 O'Clock position. It still prints a little bit in a polo or tshirt, which is why I want to switch to appendix carry because I think it will conceal better. I was thinking of going with a Glock 26 in the Crossbreed Appendix carry holster (above), but I'm also looking at the G-Code Incog.

Does anyone have experience with both?
