GLOCK 26 OWB Holster

I would like to try carrying my GLOCK 26 in an OWB holster. Since I still want the gun to remain as concealed as possible I would like a holster that rides tight to the body.

So, does anyone have any suggestions?


Thanks

i have a paddle owb made by wild bill that i like, it rides tight and high up so its pretty easy to conceal. Usually i carry iwb with a clipdraw and a mic holster.

You might like a Safariland 6378.

Wow, funny you should mention the Safariland holster as it is already high on my list. I own one for my H&K USP and really like it a lot, but was just curious about other options. I may go ahead and get one since it is really a great deal when you consider price/quality/function.

I'll put a vote in for the Safariland 6378 as well. It carries a 5" 1911 nicely and the suede lining, which is kinda rare for a poly holster, keeps the polished slide scratch free.

Glock sub-compact holsters....

For a good concealed type holster, I'd look at these brands; Blackhawk SERPA, Safariland SFS or the ALS, the "skin-tite" line from HighNoon Holsters, Mitch Rosen, Milt Sparks, Greg Kramer, Don Hume, Kirkpatrick Leather, COM Holsters, Blade-tech, DeSantis, Galco.
A Kydex or polymer rig will hold up well & retain the Glock sub-compact.

I'm totally sold on the Fobus paddle holsters. Inexpensive, easy to put on and take off, comfortable, waterproof, light and thin, very secure snap-in retention, quick to draw. Here's a link to the one for your gun:

Outside of a paddle holster because some of them arc out, holding the gun close to your body is the belts job. The holster just holds the gun till you need it.

With that said this may help you out. Rides high.
