Default Single vs double clip OWB holster

I’ve used an alien gear holster with a g26 for a number of years. It’s pretty comfortable and supports the weight nicely (not that the g26 is heavy). It’s kind of a pain to put back on without taking my pants off. How are the single clip kind working for folks? Stay put? Twist around? Just checking on some difference options. I carry around the 4-5 o’clock position.

Are you talking the larger single clip like this?


Or single thing clip like this?


The former is fine and will stay in place, consistent cant/draw angle. Some have separate holes to change the cant. Just don't expect it to be anywhere near as comfy to wear as a hybrid leather/kydex. (I have a g26 as well. Comptac Minotaur for it -very similar to alien gear- as the first style holster up there).

The latter will flop around on ya and change cant, even with a smaller pistol like a single stack Shield. But in appendix, the belt buckle can be utilized to stabilize it in place.

Try posting in the correct forum. Then might try a holster without clips at all (like Remora).
A lot has to be said for your head screwed on straight to begin with. No, this is not a test. Lucky for you.

You might try a Vedder. They have a very robust clip.
Mine stays put and is relatively easy to get on and off.
