Re: ankle rig

You couldn't give me an ankle holster. I guess if your undercover and that's you only option. If your not, I would look at something like a Kahr with a pocket holster.

Re: ankle rig

A gun you can't access the second you need it is a gun that will not serve you. There are ways to carry a firearm even in the hotest weather that you can access it when needed, even if it means having more than one carry firearm.

Re: ankle rig

I occasionally carry my 27 on my ankle as a back up.

It is true an ankle rig can cause trouble when needing a quick draw, but like with any holster and handgun combo for defense, trainig is everything. I usually use my ankle rig off duty when going to church in the warmer months. I won't carry on the ankle if I'm wearing jeans (that's dungarees for John S)

I think mine is an Unkle Mike's, I'll check next week when I'm back to work. If you are near Monroe County let me know and you can try it out.

We all make choices, some good, some bad, can you live up to yours?

Re: ankle rig

Actually dungarees and shivarees are both before my time.

No problem, when we stop learning we are 6' under.

Re: ankle rig

Ankle rigs have their use. While not the best way to carry, in some instances they are very adequate.

If I am wearing an outer shirt, I will have a Glock 26 in a OWB holster, with a S&W 642 in a Galco Ankle Holster as a BUG.

If I have to wear a tucked shirt, the G26 goes in an ankle holster, while the 642 is carried in my right front pocket in a pocket holster.

There are times where I've only carried the 642 in the Galco.

Nothing wrong with an ankle holster if you practice drawing from one. Try drawing from a pocket holster while sitting, not going to happen unless you want to look like you are going into convulsions!

Re: ankle rig

I like the pocket holster with cargo pants.

Re: ankle rig

There are so many other options out there these days, personnaly after 24 years in law enforcement, I would consider one of them over an ankle rig.
