    Default Need Advice...

    I am totally unable to carry IWB or OWB at my place of work...therefore, my ONLY option is ankle carry.

    I need advice, serious advice from people who know what they are talking about:

    (1) I can ONLY carry in an ankle holster.
    (2) I need something I can carry *reasonably comfortably* for nine/ten hours a day.

    WHAT WOULD YOU SUGGEST????

    Please do NOT comment if you can't understnad 1 and 2.

    S&W J frame or M&P Shield in an Alessi Ankle rig.. Used one with the pull thru snap for years with a model 60 S&W on duty and it never shifted or lost the gun like I've seen other ankle rigs do.

    Ankle holsters really need some wide leg pants to access quickly. If they are the only option, then get a good quality leather one (Desantis). The leather will help the pant leg slip over the holster easily. As far as a carry, a S&W J frame (ultra weight like a 442 .38spl) or a Ruger LC9 would be a good option. The relative comfort of carry in an ankle holster depends on your size, the weapon size, and the holster.

    I prefer the Galco Ankle Glove, very comfortable and you will forget you have it on

    I carry a Ruger LCR very comfortably in a Galco Ankle Lite holster. See my piece in this posting that I recently made:

    And one on each leg to keep yourself balanced and give you an excuse to buy another gun! ;-)

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    I have used the Galco ankle holster. It has wool inside & some sort of neoprene around with leather to hold the gun. Very confortable for the J frame snubbie. Definately need some wide leg bottom pants for quick access. Some books say to wear an extra sock over the holster to people notice even less that there is something around your ankle. Wear it around the house before you start at work, just to get used to the feel. And practice drawing too. Kneel, hike up pants, then draw. Right hand shoots carry on left ankle.
