    Hello, new guy here.

    A friend recommended this site to me.

    I've had a concealed carry permit for a about 6 years. Usually only carried backpacking (where permitted) or in my vehicle.

    I have a Glock 17 (9 mm) and a Taurus 444 Multi (44 mag ultralight) and a Safepacker holster for each.

    I am researching a pistol/holster for CC in more populated areas and to carry when doing farm chores. I like the Glock 26 (9mm), but it seems a little big for a pocket carry, and the safety concerns me if pocket carried.

    I'd like to come up with a pistol/holster combo that I could use when doing farm chores. To complicate things, I'm 5-9, 140 lbs, wear 29 or 30 inch waist jeans. Not a lot of good spots inside the waist band that won't be bumping bones. Doing chores I often have to run to herd the horses. (I typically do wear blue jeans.)

    What about a Glock 26 in an ankle carry?

    Smaller pistol?

    I would greatly appreciate your input on this. I will post this in the revolver section also.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Bill.

    Crazy as it sounds... "Appendix in Waist Band" might be the easiest
    answer to your problems. It will allow you to bend, ride, and run easily.

    Find the right holster, and pistol, you might just be good to go sir!

    Stay safe!

    Ankle carry can be heavy and aukward for what you are doing. Are you wear a shirt tucked in?? If you are wearing a vest it can be used as a cover and a hip holster might work. If you do not have a cover garment a slim line Keltec or similar with a pocket holster would be an option. Go to a gun show and as many different gun stores and check as many options out as you can.
    I personaly carry with a Kydex inside the pants holster and a t shirt worn out. I do use the same holster with a tucked in shirt but pulled out enough to loop over and cover the CCW, but when you reach for something above your head it will show and you have to readjust your shirt.
    Boxing Ref_Rick also has a good idea on appendix waist band. I may also work. I am 6'2" and 185 so I am a little boney also.
    Good luck

    Sig P6/P225 (single stack, slim, 9mm) matched up with a K-holster. See this link for the holster:

    You'll forget that you have it on and the little Sig. is as reliable and accurate as they come.
