"I have this holster for a S&W 442 that I carried daily for about 10 years, and other than a scuff mark or two it is "good as new", and that particular model has some stretch fabric to assist in retention, and I do not hesitate to wear that holster knowing that it has stayed serviceable for more than 25 years. Now with all that said, when I saw that GALCO has a model to fit my Glock 26 I ordered right away. After wearing it for about the last two and a half weeks I am still impressed by GALCO's quality, design, and price. Some holsters do sting the wallet when purchased, however, it's not so bad knowing that it will not need to be replaced, ever! Unless you lose it or something weird happens. I have 3 different Jackass rigs, 3 different ankle gloves, several different magazine pouches (for different style mag's), and several belt holsters for SIG, 1911's, and Glocks, and a couple revolvers that makeup my selection of every day carry holsters, of which 99.9% percent of the time I carry two pistols, reloads, and also wear the GALCO "cop ankle band" I think it's called with a flashlight quickclot sponge and vacuum-sealed roll gauze. I know I strayed off topic a little, but I could not think of reviewing one GALCO holster without committing on the quality of every piece that I have bought from them over the last three decades. I still have (and wear) my very first "jackass rig" for a 1911. So without hesitation, I give GALCO 5 stars for the Hornet belt holster for the Glock 26, as well as every other holster I've gotten from them. You just cannot go wrong if you're looking for high quality, that will last longer than you will probably ever need it too. Best regards, Steve from NC"
