Out of curiosity, do you carry with it in the small of your back? I've never actually seen anyone do this.

When I had my subcompact glocks I found it carried best with no holster in the 1 oclock position.

I dont have much glock love anymore, no personality and so so accuracy. The 26 is way to thick for a sub compact. Might as well carry a glock 19.

You could always do a glock chop, length of the slide really does not matter for printing, only thickness and length of the grip. I can carry a 17L cut down to a 26 grip and print the same as a 26.
Heres a 23 cut to a 27.



and a 22 I cut to a 27.


19 to 26 is my favorite.

This is actually a really cool idea... How did they get the perfect groove in the cut handle though?

And could it be done with a gen3 considering the finger grooves?

I have but ti's not my chosen method. As mentioned I'm carrying a PF-9 si I can pretty much make do with whatever I'm wearing. I have carried there when I know that I'll be standing the whole time. I just use the clip that the Kel-tec has available for it.

True. There is really no versatility.

The 23 above that photo is a gen 3, its just steepled.


Basically you set there with a empty mag and a pocket knife and keep whittling. Make your first cut long so you can remove material.




This is the same gun once the paint was removed.


It eventually got a rounded/undercut trigger gard, steepled, slide bead blasted, and sold
.

It is the only place comfortable for me to carry It is better than nothing. When I carry on my hip it is noticeable because of my frame and what I wear.

Not a bad deal; go ahead and grab it. Then go to the gun store and buy 2 boxes of high end defense ammo and 100 rounds of plinking stuff.

I think any is ok; it's a Glock, it should run anything.
