    Anyone know of a comfortable, fairly priced ankle holster for the Ruger LCP? Thoughts from anyone who has carried in an ankle holster. Thinking this will be nice for back up....

    Thanks

    I have an ankle holster like this one (think it is the same).

    Here's the company website

    The key thing about it is the fleece backing that you see in the pic. Very important, kinda like a saddle pad for a horse. Very comfortable.

    But I wear it with hiking boots, that keeps it from sliding down :)

    I am glad I found this thread. My wife just got her CCW permit and is wanting to try an ankle holster. The one above wont break the bank and looks like a good buy. Thank you Ithaca for posting it!

    Just be aware of the hiking boot use with it that I mention.

    Everyone has different shaped legs, I guess :) But there can be a natural tendancy for an ankle holster to slide down until something stops it. That could be your ankle itself, or it could be the shoe or hiking boot or work boot that you wear.

    The above is comfortable for me with a shoe also, but I prefer the hiking boot to keep the holster from going too low and showing when I sit down.

    Other designs may have support straps that go up to the knee or above the calf. Personally I don't want any stinking support straps. I like this simple type shown above.

    :)

    I have the Fobus ankle holster for the LCP. It's also a good one. No buttons, velcro tabs......gun snaps into place and is secure. In church, the ladies like to hug.......so, this is the solution!

    My first ankle holster didn't have a rolled edge, couldn't stand it. I bought an Uncle Mike's and found it to be perfect for me.
