Bought a Glock 26 last night

    I've moved into the world of Glocks. I traded-in my Kel-tec P32 and my brother bought my S&W 642.

    Any idea if/where I can find a front pocket holster for the 26?

    I had an Unlce Mike's for my 642 ($7.99 - Sidekick), but couldn't find a similar one on their website for the 26. I'd like to find the exact same thing for the Glock.

    Greeting's All-

    Well sportcat my friend, I probably would have
    kept the S&W 642; but you're going to love the G26!
    I bought a G27, instead of the G26; and wish I could
    have afforded both. Found myself, dissatisfied with
    .40 caliber weapons in general; favoring the larger,
    slower delivery of the .45 ACP.

    I do know quite a few people with the G26, and they
    would rather "fight than switch"! :uhoh: Enjoy~

    Best Wishes,

    The 642 (probably revolvers in general) just didn't work for me, plus I'd rather have 11 rounds than 5.

    I wish I could have kept the 642, but I needed the funds to buy the 26.

    I have been pocket carrying a G-26 in the desantis nemesis for about 2 years now, and its the best pocket holster for it IMHO. I had an uncle mikes made out of the suedy stuff (it was actually the IWB with a clip).
    The nemisis is under $20 delivered, and has a sticky outer cover that keeps it in place on the draw.

    Personally, I think the G26 is a tad too big/heavy for pocket carry (just my opinion).

    It is a great gun though. I really like shooting mine. Enjoy! :)

    I just ordered the Nemesis; however, I hated paying $10.00 shipping for an $11.49 holster.

    It's only going from TN to SC!

    Heck, that's their PROFIT!!

    I bought some Cigars, from a outfit in New York State. They had great prices on the box of Cigars....then proceeded to charge me $12.00 for GROUND freight, UPS.

    I figgered out real quick where they make their money.:mad:

    I searched the web to get a better deal, but even with shipping, they came out with the best price.

    Desantis price was higher, but lower shipping. Still came out a little higher than Natchezss.

    I like the Fist pocket holsters.

    I carry the Glock 27 in a Galco PH286. With Levi jeans, and a good belt, it is very workable. The trick is to have a untucked shirt to cover the entrance to the pocket so it blends in well.

    Kramer has a good one. You do need big pockets, though.

    I love my G27, but I would not carry it in my pocket at all. It rides in a Comp-tac Gurkha kydex holster.

    I too own a G26, but find it a tad to big to fit comfortably in the pocket, and without filing the pocket out too much.

    I felt most comfrtable with a holster that sat high and close on my hip, thus concealing the G26 perfectly, with the small 10 round mag.

    The 642 (probably revolvers in general) just didn't work for me, plus I'd rather have 11 rounds than 5.

    The problem is the 642 and the Glock 26 fill different tactical roles. The Glock is simply too big for pocket carry. Even if you find a pocket holster it will be painfully obvious where your glock is. The 642 fills the pocket gun role perfectly. The Glock on the other hand is a good belt gun and a general ccw weapon. Its one of the easiest small autos to conceal in a belt holster or shoulder rig. But a pocket gun it aint.
