    Galco Ankle Glove for S&W 638

    As the thread title suggests, I'm looking at getting a Galco Ankle Glove holster as an alternate means of deep concealment, for times when it isn't practical to carry my 1911 on my waistband. So, who has experience using this holster, or can suggest alternative ankle holsters that are able to be worn all day without too much issue. I usually wear boots of some variety, work boots, Marine boots, roper boots. I know that ankle carry is kind of slow and not ideal, but I'd still like to have the option open. Your feedback is appreciated.

    i use it for a model 60. it is not going to work over boots. i don't know of any ankle holster that will, unless you get a extender section to make it longer. but the holster is a good one. one of the better ones that i have use over the years for ankle carry.

    Try one before you buy; I mean wear it for several hours.
    After trying many of them, I came to the conclusion it was not working for me.
    Wearing boots 95% of the time, whether cowboy boots or Harley riding boots, I couldn't get it to work with my G-26 or a S&W .38 2" barrel.

    Good luck !

    I occasionally use an Ankle Glove with my 340 and it's great!

    I carry a 638 in a Galco ankle glove almost daily and it works great. Both with and without boots. With boots you will need the boot extension.

    I'll have to keep that in mind about the extension. But I will be ding a fair amount of job searching in the next year, and business casual type clothing and dressier is really where I'd have the most issue concealing my 1911, until I get to wearing suits.

    Thanks for the input guys, if anyone else has any keep it coming.
