Nothing wrong with an ankle holster.... I use one. I think the situation or an environment can dictate the best type of CC holster to use. I think it is important with the type of pants you are going to wear over an ankle holster. For instance, I would never wear this type of rig under jeans or sweat pants. However, under a pair of casual slacks such as "Dockers" they work very well. I use this rig daily for work and have practiced pulling up the pant leg and drawing... I can draw as quickly if not quicker than some can from a concealed IWB holster. The pant leg pulls up very easily with the business casual slacks. I like my rig better than I do his as all I have to do is unsnap with the thumb break to draw mine. My G27 carries nicely in this rig and hides very well.
