I have a couple ankle holsters. That has been my preferred carry method for decades. Ruger LCP and Walther PPK/S. Neither are comfortable. Do you know of any comfortable brands? Yes they are hot. But how about some padding?
Thanks my friends!

I wear shorts pretty much year round, so they won't work for me at all. Can't imagine trying, at my age, (73), to bend over to dig a pistol out of all that laundry in an emergency.

I had one I really liked for a kahra pm380. I bought it when I was out of town at a gunshop I passed because I was going into ni gun places on vacation and it fit the bill.

I don't remember the brand but it was comfortable enough I forgot it was there.

As far as getting to it its the perfect solution if you drive a lot. Easy to get to when seated and the seat belt does not cause problems with it. Also it's not digging into you when seated.

I drive a lot in a car and operate mobile equipment at work so is great for me. Unfortunately I think it got left in a hotel when I was pocket carrying one day I was wearing shorts.

The best one I have used is called Bug Bite holster. Bug stands for back up gun. There is no sliding around and it even will hold an extra mag. My local gun shop carries them now, but I think they are mainly web orders. The website has some good videos and shows you where and how to measure your leg so you know which one to order.

I have a Bianchi for a J frame Smith that I carry in my left boot. It is very well padded around the ankle and the upper strap that goes just below the knee is good elastic. I can jog while wearing it and it doesn't move.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Providence - if you remember the name, please share. It sounds nice. Yes, ankle holster is good when driving and operating equipment.

Lestan - that sounds good. I will look at their info. I had a friend who was on secret service detail first team to President Reagan. He carried 3 guns, but would never show me the secrets - he said if he did he would have to kill me. Even after he retired!

Yes Sir - I will check out Galco.

160 - that sounds wonderful. Secure and comfortable.

If wearing cowboy boots, the Walther does not need a holster. It drops right in a crevice.
In hunting or work boots, everything goes in a holster.

Another gun that is perfect for an ankle holster is my Walther TPH in .22 long rifle. However, I want more horsepower in a self-defense gun. So, the TPH truly is a backup gun, or a disappearing gun. I do know that my friend did carry a Walther TPH as his third gun.
