    I am looking for a holster that can be attached or sewn into my vest to carry my back up gun (glock 26). I would like to draw to be horizontal (as opposed to the common vertical) with left hand cross draw (i am a righty).

    any suggestions?

    I have a friend that is a Deputy that carries that way. You are talking an under the uniform vest right, not outer carrier? Anyways he has a holster that straps on to the front Velcro of his vest. I'll ask him what kind of holster it is next time I see him.

    I guess it would depend if you got spare Velcro on the front of his vest like he does...

    Seems dicey, having a removeable weapon on the front of your vest.

    No idea on the specific holsters but I've seen it done lots.
    I'm pretty sure Adrenaline carries his backup ghetto blaster on his vest.

    The trick is to sew a button or 2 in place so it looks normal, but then sew on a couple pieces of velcro.

    i have extra velcro on the front. would also like some sort of retention, (thumb break, or atleast a velcro strap. the vest is under the uniform shirt. i would probably end up sewing the holster onto the vest anyway for extra assurance. thanks for any input you guys can get.

    5.11 and Uncle Mikes both make a small velcro holster that will work for this, and both are very popular...and about $10-15. I have the 5.11 one, but my carrier just doesn't allow for it to fit, and be comfortable.

    Btw...the most popular way of securing it that i have seen, it to "snap" it to the velcro itself, then run one of the velcro vest straps over top of it...if that makes sense.

    The 5.11 one is the backup belt system holster. The Uncle Mike's, i'm not sure...but its an off white color, full velcro.

    i dont like the fact that there is no retention on that holster because i want to carry it in the vest with a horizontal cross draw (similar to a shoulder holster). I was contemplating that holster and sewing on a button strap

    I'm thinking that one or both of them had a strap...but i would have to verify.
