New IDPA Shooter

Can anyone recommend a suitable OWB holster for a Glock 26 in IDPA competition?

Thanks & Best Regards,

Walt

BladeTech Revolution straight drop belt holster. About $25. Don't forget a real gun belt, like the Wilderness Tactical Original Instructor in 5 stitch, and 2 mag pouches (that's all you can wear for IDPA) and with left over $$$$, get some Peltor Tac 6 electric ears.

If you still have not selected a Holster

I am a rookie... and then some, but there are so many Blade Tech holsters out there that it seems like it would be hard to go wrong starting there. Good luck.

I have a blade tech holster on the way right now, and I picked it based on internet reviews and what many of the guys on the IDPA team at the club I belong to suggested i get for my first holster.

Comp Tac is the old gold standard for IDPA.

Comparison of both

Easy to find on YouTube, but thought it was a good comparison.

Any straight-drop holster that is not off-set outward from the belt, and which holds the gun so that the frame front-strap is above the belt, is going to be suitable.
I have about ten "suitable" holsters, and don't see much of a performance difference among them.
I bought an Uncle Mike's holster, for about $20, for one-time use of a borrowed gun. No issues with it, at all.
I'm currently using a hand-made, $100+ leather holster, and no issues with that, either.
