  • Best quality ankle holster

    Who makes it?
    How much did it cost you?
    Were did you buy it?

    I'm looking into one for a Glock 26 or a S&W J Frame.

    May I assume there's no talking you out of the ankle rig?

      When I was assigned to Detectives, I carried a Glock Model 27 as a back-up weapon to my Model 23 (both are .40 S&W). The best ankle rig (IMHO) wasn't the most expensive, it was the DeSantis Apache. It was secure, concealable, comfortable and very reasonably priced. In certain situations, an ankle holster is the only practical solution and it certainly beats not having a gun at all. You can order these directly from the factory and have it delivered within a week.

        Banchi as one... Try Copquest.... I think they are about 50 or so...I have several of them for several different guns....

        Nothing wrong with a ankle gun... However 3 guns are better...

        Id say that J frame would be great on the ankle... and that 26 would go great in a uncle mikes sidekick holster... its a preaty good stetup..

          I have to agree with Sarge, but if you insist go with a S&W Airlite or Scandium frame or the new Ruger LCR, much lighter and thinner. You also might consider a "Hip Grip" on the J-frame and wear boots to hook it to. I never had any luck with the ankle holsters, they always loosened up or swiveled around.

            As much as I hate to admit it the Uncle Mike's ankle holster I have for my J-frame S&W has worked very well. I've never cared for Uncle Mike's but it works. It stays very secure on my leg. There is an over the calf strap that connects to the holster and helps secure it. It also is tight on my leg but rests on top of my boot so it doesn't move. I've run in it many times and never had any trouble.

              I already carry IWB; as to talking me out of ankle carry, it's not necessary, but I want to find out what the best option is.

                Renegade ankle holsters. I've used one for two years now with my j frame. It's very comfy and secure. Wraps right around the top of my danners.

                I feel weird without it on now.

                  As for ankle holsters, IMO it is the Galco ankle glove, hands down.

                    I tried two different styles, many years ago and hated them the second I wrapped it around my ankle. But, if I were to attempt wearing such a holster, I'd probably consider the bootlock design. This shouldn't spin around, especially when running. Here's what I'm talking about:

                        +1 for smurf. If your going to wear over a boot, then get the boot extended. I also got the calf strap too. Wow, secure secure secure and feels great. Did not know it was there with my J-frame. Just got the Galco cop band, and it gets the job done but do not like it near as much. Just did not have the money to get another Galco glove. Paid approx. 60 for holster, 20 for boot extended, and 20 for calf strap. Let us know what you get and how it works CT.
                        I trust my life with J. M. Browning's design, the 1911.

                            Another vote for the Galco Ankle Glove. I highly recommend getting the calf strap for it as well.

                              G&G Bootlock

                              If you wear combat style boots, check out the G&G Bootlock. It laces into the boot, then velcros around the top. Very secure. I did have to have the pant leg widened a little bit, but it rides very comfortable.
