Video: Ankle Holsters For Concealed Carry
The National Shooting Sports Foundation has just released another one of their excellent training videos. This video features SIG SAUER Academy's Adam Painchaud talking about carrying a pistol or revolver in an ankle holster.
As I have long batted around the idea of doing this given that I drive a lot and often work in places where guns are not welcome though not illegal. While it is not the ideal situation for a primary carry gun, it is good for a backup gun as well. I think it is a viable option when it's a choice between carrying and not carrying due to clothing or the work environment.
Adam mentions both Galco and Alessi holsters for ankle carry. I'm sure there are others if you look. I think he is correct in saying a flimsy holster isn't got to be comfortable. I'd go a step further and say it ain't gonna cut.
One last comment - if you typically wear skinny jeans, you may want to consider other alternatives for carrying your concealed firearm. Just saying.
