    I have carried my P239 .40 S&W. That is about as big as you can go. It is okay, but I can't find wide enough pant legs.

    I carried a small frame, 5 shot .38spl revolver for about two years and that was enough for me. I hated it. Small and light really matters in a ankle holster. If I had to do it today I would carry something like a Seecamp, TPH, LCP, PSA or such.

    For me its the LCP. Until bell bottoms come back in style, that's about all my stumps will allow without a visible give away.

    I have an Ankle glove for my Sig p230sl, but only use it as a last resort-It's pretty heavy and bounces around a lot no matter how tight I have it strapped-
    it helps to have a boot or something to give a little more support under it-

    I will echo the same sentiment, stumps and all!

    I don't like carrying guns on ankle. Had a bad experience when running to my car in the rain once and my gun flew out on the ground. In a Bianchi holster no less!

    I do carry spare magazines and money & ID in an ankle rig from time to time.

    It was easier in the 70s with flared legs on leisure suits.

    Can you elaborate on this? You found an ankle mag carrier? Where?

    To the OP:

    I dont like an ankle rig for the reason Bark'n said but would consider a mag holster there.

    J-frame Airweight or Airlite. Think second gun when ankle carrying. I use this method when driving my wife's VW convertible with the top down.

    Glock 27 but it has to be in an Alessi / Bulman type rig to ride properly.

    Airweight J frame or lighter is much easier for day to day carry.

    I sometimes carry a 642 in a Renegade ankle rig (awesome ankle rig BTW). With the design of the Renegade, I think I could carry a steel snubby like an SP101 without too much trouble, but that's about as heavy of a gun as I'd want to carry.
