Have you tried them yet?

Its seems we all search for the perfect carry holster. One that fits well and is not a pain to haul around all day. I have tried the belly band, the middle of the back, hip, shoulder, cross draw, plastic, uncle mikes, in the front pocket and so many others I can't remember all of them.

Then we have to have a holster for each handgun, so we have the option to carry them if we choose. Its an expensive hobby!

Is the ankle holster a viable option? I have never tried that methoid of carry and wonder if its difficult to access quickly in an emergency?

makes for a good back up.
The link is to a holster with the upper calf strap. Does this system rub and chafe when you walk and can you feel the extra weight?

If you were in an emergancy situation would the noise of opening the holster strap attract the attention of the person you were defending against. Say you are in the middle of a 7-11 robbery situation and you need to draw!

It does rub, but not too bad, the only noise it makes is the button unsnapping. Just act like you drop something and pull it out :cool:

I have tried a few, and mostly didn't like them.

I prefer a cross draw waistband, cross draw shoulder, or hip pocket.

Before switching a few months ago to a Galco push-up holster, I carried daily to work for about four years - and as far as I know undetected - my Seecamp LWS .32 ACP in a De Santis Apache ankle holster. No problems, no complaints.

Such holster is a wide nylon and elastic band held together by velcro, and padded by lamb's wool on the inside. This is the design I most advise.

The elastic band comfortably but firmly hugs the gun against your leg without shifting up, down, and around; and the lambs wool shields bony prominences against hard steel surfaces.

Here's a link: http://www.desantisholster.com/062.html

Thanks for the good information!

My choice of carry is in a Galco front pocket holster. In the woods I have a Galco Concealable for my 45 acp. ( have a bunch of other holsters from many mfg for my other guns)

Blue Stone makes a very comfortable ankle holster called the Deluxe Ankle Holster A326. It fits all handguns and has Velcro Thumb Break• D-Ring Locking system for extra security and Genuine Vegetable Tanned Sheepskin for leg comfort. I've had no problems wearing this ankle holster all day.

I've tried a few and didn't have much luck until recently. A $20 Ace Case ankle rig that holds my PF-9 so nicely that I look down and cant even see the bulge. Best 20 bucks I've spent in a while.
