Ankle holsters really need to have at least a 30deg cant. I bought a cheapy without a cant for my p3at, and it sucked. Skinny calves suck too.
Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......
I use a Don Hume ankle safe. I have no complaints with it. I use it daily and I love that it has a leg strap above the calf. I think it supports my gun much better with the strap. Other than that, I really can't say. I haven't used any other ankle holsters.

Welcome to the forum. I only have one Galco ankle holster with the calf strap for my Taurus 605. I really like it, comfortable and stable.

I am going to purchase an ankle holster for my Kahr but I have absolutely no experience with any kind of holsters, whether ankle or IWB.
I'm a big guy so ankle carry will be the most comfortable for me. I know it's not the most tactical but I will be more apt to carry on my ankle versus in waistband etc.
If you want to try an ankle holster, start with the best: a Renegade Cozy Partner. I often wear one for 12 hours or more with my backup pistol, in complete comfort.
I'd suggest taking another look at a waist holster, though - you'll find getting to a CW9 on the ankle to be time-consuming. :) One bit of advice - check out the F.I.S.T. line of ultra-thin Kydex holsters. They are well-made, affordable, and add almost nothing to the thickness of your pistol. You might them a better choice than ankle carry only. I use one for my Kahr PM9 and am about to order another.
Another vote for Renegade. I've tried a few other brands, including some very expensive ones, but nothing works like Renegade for me.
I tried an expensive model in the seventies and it did have the padded leg strap. It was a true pain in every respect. If it wasn’t sliding down, it would bang on everything. Also, have ya ever tried going a full day without crossing your legs? It’s like having a fly on your nose with your hands tied behind your back!

I noticed a couple people saying that their rig was bumping into things. I wear my ankle holster on the inside of my left leg and have never bumped anything with it there. Am I missing something?

Thanks for all the input guys.
I decided on Blue Stone Wolverine Deluxe Ankle Holster
Belly Bands - Blue Stone
I got it in today and it feels pretty comfortable and it has an extra strap for security in case I have to run or climb, etc.
Was relatively inexpensive at $39.95 shipped. I will let you guys know how it holds up in the days to come.
