Ankle Carry+not a good idea
So my SA kicked into high gear tonight as I exited a retirement party after playing two weddings on the way to my car and encountered a pack of teenagers between me and my car. BTW, I had my violin ($10K and $500 cash in gig money in my wallet)
Nothing happened but I became aware that my typical carry situation of wearing my tux for a wedding gig and having my .38 on my ankle would have been totally useless had this pack of teenagers decided to get between me and my ride home.
For some reason, tonight I decided to try wearing my jackass rig for my .380 under my tux instead to see if I could still play violin unencumbered and I did successfully. I felt very reassured knowing my Walther was in reach had this situation gone south.
The only comment I got was that "I'd dropped my magnifying glass" (I did look a bit like Inspector Gadget wearing a tux and a green military officer's overcoat)
Not complaining, not looking for answers, just realizing that I would have been defenseless had I ankle carried.
food for thought...
