+1 If your going to carry a small revolver like a J frame Smith & Wesson carry it in your front pocket using a Uncle Mikes. Easy to get to & still out of the way.John S said:Yep, don't buy one! A handgun for self defense needs to be carried in a place where you can access it in a hurry without bending over and pulling up a pant leg. Ankle holsters are mostly used to carry a second gun by police incase they are disarmed, not to carry a primary weapon. This isn't the recommendation you are looking for but it is one to consider.
