    Hello GT,

    I recently purchased a Glock 39 and I am inquiring about some ankle holsters for it. I have them narrowed down to two. A Fobus Ankle Holster, or a Galco Ankle Glove. Please try to help me on this and let me know which is better and why you like them.

    I have a fobus and I'm not to thrilled about it. Almost never use it. I've heard good things about the galco.

    I love my galco. I carry my 26 in church with it and it hides very well. I have the one with the suede holster instead of the leahter. I found the leather to print alittle more, not as comfortable and more expensive.

    Also I will add that I can go all day with my galco on and just about forget I am waring it. It is very very comfortable

    Fobus tends to be bottom of the barrel as far as holsters go, but I've never tried their ankle holsters. Galco tends to be quality stuff, but that doesn't mean you'll like ankle carry. You'll have to see.

    I have a Galco Ankle Lite. Cheaper than Ankle Glove and lighter. Nice thick neoprene band with hefty velcro. Padded with sheepskin so very comfortable. I sometimes carry a 27 with it and forget I have it on.

    The Fobus ankle rigs hold the weapon out away from your ankle. That makes a wider rig that swings when you walk.
    I have not owned a Galco ankle glove, but hear only positive reviews.
    I have a Bulman for a G26, and an Alessi for a J frame. They are fantastic.

    I sometimes wear my G19 on a Galco Glove w/o the strap, and it is extremely comfortable. In fact I've worn it at 8 hours at a time w/o any problems. I highly recommend it. I'm not a big guy at 5'8", and have no problems with concealment except sometimes when I sit somewhere in public I always check to see if my pants leg rode up.

    I got a Fobus ankle holster for my G26...not crazy about it. I'll probably switch to something else. The Bianchi Triad looks interesting.

    Renegade ankle holster. Order directly from the maker at +1 (602) 4826777. For some reason they don't have a website, but they do have a couple pages of paper showing their models and what not.

    From the choices you listed, Galco.

    I would look into an Alessi or a 5 shot leather if you want something nice.

    Galco Ankle Glove


    I love mine. (for a Smith 642) I jus thave to make sure and wear taller socks so that I can fold it down to use as a base that keeps the holster from sliding down too far on my ankle. As long as I do that it is all day comfortable/forget it is tehre.

    My favorite (that I have personally used) is the Renegade. Recently got an outstanding deal on a Galco Ankle Glove (with calf strap) for my G26, and it's working out splendidly as well. (very comfortable)

    Someday, I'll come across a nice one made by Uncle Lou (Alessi).

    I tried a Galco Ankle Glove, but found it to be too big. However, I have been carrying a Uncle Mike's nylon holster and SW 442 combo for about 8 years, maybe 10, and it works fine. Maybe the Glock was the problem for ankle carry for me. I know another trooper using a G23 :wow: for ankle carry.

    Another vote for the Renegade here, although I've never tried one for a Glock, as I don't consider them ankle guns. For smaller guns that I have used ankle holsters with I think it is the leader of the pack.
