  • Ankle carry

    So I typically carry on my support side with the butt facing back, but recently cage across this style that advocates carrying strong side with butt facing forward. Anyone tried carrying this way? Here's a video of him discussing it: https://youtu.be/RGxxAEjFcX0

    Eh, whatever works. Train and it won't be a problem no matter where you carry it.

      The video is choreographed - he pins the kid down, but the kid does not go for his eyes. With the kid astride, he lifts him up and the kid punches above hid head, not adjusting for the change in position. Like the movies, it's easy when the outlaw has read the script.

      With any ankle holster, unless you are seated, getting the gun out is a BIG problem. You either kneel down, or do the one legged hop-around. I carried on my ankle for a while, but I could NEVER get the gun out quickly. I finally settled on either pocket carry (which is no good if you are seated), or appendix carry. I have done it for years with a custom made single action auto, and never had the safety come off.
      The problem with an ankle carry is, it lets you think you are armed.

        I carry mine inside my shirt under my support arm attached to my vest strap in a cross draw fashion. It is undetectable, I don't have to bend to get it, and I don't have to worry about losing it. And, I don't even feel it there.

          He did a class at an IALEFI regional in Ocean City, MD, several years ago. I tend to agree with RAND. It offers an advantage in that specific circumstance. While I haven't worn an ankle holster thatoften since then, I still carried inside my weak=side leg.

            Helps make a case for carrying one on each ankle. Carry a traditional draw (weak side, grip to the rear) and a second with this strong leg, grip forward technique. A knife worn on the centerline of the the body would also be useful in the mount position shown in the video.

              I like your way of thinking. I've been considering dual ankle holsters per leg, for a total of four guns. That way, no matter how I end up in that specific encounter, I'm ready to react.
