I am new to shooting and carrying what would you recommend as a everyday holster?
Thanks for your comments. Most of my activities would include walking around on sites and general office work and lots of driving.Happysniper1 said:@Lxlate (did I spell that right?):
Perhaps a reason you have not had any replies is because a person's choice of holster is an intensely personal choice. Given the basics that a holster must (1)cover the trigger guard and protect the trigger, and (2)somehow retain the weapon and prevent it from falling out, aside from that, the sky is the limit.
Personally, I am partial to Serpa holsters by Blackhawk. They have a positive retention system that requires you press with your trigger finger on the release tab, and as you draw the weapon from the holster, your trigger finger is correctly (safely) positioned on the frame above the trigger but outside of the trigger guard. With practice (lots of it by now!) I can draw and reholster my Glock without ever looking at the holster, and this is important: you do not take your eyes off of the threat as you unholster. I tell people (my opinion): if you need to look at your holster to draw it, you need to practice some more.
Unfortunately, Serpas are OWB (outside the waistband), so concealment requires I cover it with an outergarment. No problem in the winter, but it limits what I can wear in the summer. My love handles preclude my ever being comfortable with an IWB (inside the waistband) holster, of any kind.
MikeP, a Forum Member, has some sharp Kydex holsters for OWB, you can hit him up. Available for different Glocks and in different colors, too!
You may also want to specify a few more things: where are you located (this is related to whether or not you can legally CC -concealed carry, or like some, are doomed to OC -open carry), and what kinds of activities would you be doing with an "everyday holster". Just a friendly suggestion....
It hit me after I posted that, that it wasn't a 26/27 because of the rail. ooops.Yeah I was thinking the same thing but the 26 doesn't have a rail system for attachments. I was thinking it was a compact of some sort with a grip reduction ( shortened in the length ).
100% completely understand. That's why any of us want to CC.i want to CC for my safety
Thanks will check it outMike P said:100% completely understand. That's why any of us want to CC.
They may or may not be for you but you can check this link on my site that has two video reviews at the bottom of the page. First one is just a general unboxing, close ups and general impressions. The second is opinions after wearing all day. Skip to 5 minute mark on the second vid.
I think the vids give a better over all view over just pics.
