I just purchased my first Tupperware gun (G26). I have always carried full weight stuff like 1911 or CZ 75, but I wanted something light. I have always had outside the waistband holsters. I have been looking at the Inside the waistband holsters and wanted to know what experience others have had concerning wear on the gun and practicality. Also, any inside info on paddle holsters? Thanks, Bill.

I have a blackhawk with both the paddle and belt loops and this is (pic) my EDC bikini rig. I would look real seriously at the crossbreed too http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/ , it will be my next purchase after the belly band http://www.pistolwear.com/ for jogging and exercise

My favorite concealable one is a leather one made by a guy in Florida. For an open carry type deal I like the Tagua (sp?) model. I've never lost it rolling around on the ground, running, etc. with it on.

The 26 is a good weapon, you'll be happy with it.

One of mine has over 15K now on it. I cleaned it once at 7K. The first 7k rounds were totally without lubrication also. They are as tough as people make them out to be.

I carry a G26 in a Crossbreed Supertuck and like it very much. A little stiff at first but after you use it a bit it breaks in nicely. It is very comfortable and stays put. I have a half dozen IWB holsters in a drawer that I cannot say that about.

At a gun show I met the folks who own this company:

I loved the purse holster. They are expensive as they are made from leather. Anyway, I'd like one on my next Christmas list!

Wow, that's a good torture test. Thanks for the info. Did you get glow-in-the-dark sights?

Thanks. I went to the website and watched the video. I'll give that some thought.

I think you'll like your 26 my wife carries one, I also carry a 27 occasionally.

As for wear on the gun from IWB carry, in my experience the Glock series of handguns wear very well. The finish will rub off in spots after carrying for a couple years but the metal doesn't rust, at least mine hasn't.
