The Baby Glock
The Glock 26 was the babiest of the Glocks before the Glock 42 & Glock 43 came along. In fact, it was the very first baby Glock. It was introduced in 1996 and is still widely popular. It handles much like the Glock 17 on which it’s based only it’s much easier to carry concealed in one of our Glock 26 concealed carry holsters. It’s easy to see then why it’s so popular. It’s basically a Glock 17 with a shorter barrel and grip.
This works great as a backup gun if you already carry the Glock 19 or Glock 17. It can take the same mags as the Glock 19 or Glock 17. If you carry the Glock 19 or Glock 17 as your primary weapon, that’s a very attractive reason to carry the Glock 26. It’s also comforting to know that the manual of arms is exactly the same.

Made for Concealment
The Glock 26 also works as a great primary carry for the Concealed Carrier. It’s very easy to conceal (inside good Glock 26 Kydex holsters) while also being a proven workhorse. It packs 10+1 rounds of 9mm and if you carry a spare Glock 17 mag, you can reload with 17 rounds.
While you might not like guns that leave your pinky flapping in the wind, it’s important to note that pinky extensions are cheap and easy to find. That configuration will leave you with a full grip (sort of) while still maintaining a very small footprint that’s quite easy to hide.
The Glock 26’s light weight makes it very easy to forget you strapped on a gun before leaving the house. It’s not just somewhat lightweight either. At 21 ounces, you’ll be hard pressed to find even a single stack 9mm that weighs less. One of the biggest burdens of carrying a hunk of metal on your belt all day is the weight of the thing. Our Glock 26 concealed carry holsters release you from that burden.
The Glock 26 also enjoys a great reliability record. It is based on the battle proven Glock 17 after all. It’s simple operation and reliability assure you that when you unholster it and pull the trigger, it will go bang.
The baby Glock also happens to tout pretty impressive accuracy. Not all short barreled handguns are that accurate. Getting a smaller gun without short changing accuracy is always a good thing.
A few more features that make the Glock 26 attractive are the short reach trigger, large mag drop and replaceable backstraps. All these features come together to help you run the Glock faster and easier at the range.
One last feature to look at with any Glock is the amount of gun you get for the money. Other pedigree brands such as Sig or H&K can charge quite a bit more for their flagship models than Glock does. And while Glock isn’t as budget priced as some guns on the market, it’s priced very well for the level of quality it brings to the table. Find your ideal Glock 26 concealment holsters here today!
