I have a glock 26 and am having a hard time finding a way to conceal and it still be accessible. Currently using a pancake holster. Tried in-the-pants and found it far too uncomfortable. I have a small frame and the gun looks bulky and awkward on my side, no matter the clothing. Any suggestions?

What kind of holster do you have? A quality holster and belt make all the difference in the world.

Vertical stripes on a button down shirt. Dark colored shirts. Wear at 8 or 4 o'clock. The Don Hume JIT holster is an awesome choice. Keeps the gun high and tight to the body. A kydex infused stiff belt is the only way to go.

Currently using an uncle mikes pancake holster. Its low-end for sure. Will look into a high-quality holster as suggested. Thanks for the help folks.

Just got my White Hat Max tuck in the mail today and that thing is amazing to say the least. I have been carrying it at about 3:30 and it is very comfortable and can't even tell I have my G23 on me. I tried it at about the 3:00 position and when I sat down it was either the leather or the belt clip was digging into my leg which made it uncomfortable. Try new spots and a better holster. I know Foxx holsters which is a vendor on here has IWB holsters similar to the White Hat and Crossbreed IWB at a far better price I think $39 check their thread out under the vendor section.

I carry a 27 off duty, at most times... I run a SOB holster at a 3:30 -4:00 position... I'm small framed too (6'5" 180 lbs)... I run several holsters and all just behind my hip... Easily covered...

I noticed the JIT holster doesn't have a retention strap. Would you consider it safe to cary with one in the chamber?

These are the two holsters I have. The "pancake" holster imprints badly. The ITW holster I find uncomfortable and still imprints. Probably need to go up a pant size to make it work.
My fault you said pancake and I thought paddle. Something designed like this will prevent the weapon from digging into you. There is a vendor here called Foxx Holsters who makes a very similar design for $39 shipped I believe. I would not hesitate to place an order and feel the difference it will make.

Kydex. I'm not sure how "reasonable" it is but they have a great selection to choose from here. I conceal my Glock 17 at work that I'm not supposed to have... ;) Lol. Let's just say that holster rocks! Its great quality and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Both pictures I'm armed promise!
I typically carry in the back around the 8 o' clock position. (lefty) but I wanted to show how well this holster conceals.
Nice! And that is with shirt tucked too. That's what I'm going for. There shouldn't be a question of "what is under his shirt".
