    Recommend a good ankle rig for a j frame?

    I need a good rig for a j frame to wear on my ankle. First, I am not a fan of ankle carry, but my new assignment limits other carry options for a back up weapon. I am somewhat of a minimalist and don't want something too bulky. Any suggestions?

    The Galco Ankle Glove isn't a bad holster.

    Best one I've ever used (don't use an ankle much though) Renegade cozy Partner.

    Click on the pictures they have a couple different ones for a J-frame.

    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    The "cadillac" was the Alessi, but Alessi isnt as consistent quality since Lou passed. Ritchie Leather, Skip Ritchei who was Lou's assistant is making them now, and look to be of high quality.

    The Galco Ankle Glove would be a close second.

    Another one that will say that Alessi ankle holsters are (or maybe now were?) considered to be the best.
    Kramer also makes a very, very, good ankle holster.

    I will wear an Uncle Mikes ankle holster if i cannot pocket carry. It is comfortable, conceals well, and retention is good. Best of all it is inexpensive and can be purchased at your local gun store. bunker

    5-Shot makes awesome ankle holsters. They are modeled off of the Alessi as well. I have one for my P238 and I absolutely love it.

    Renegade. No need to look further. I have Renegade ankle holsters for J-Smiths, D-Colts, my Kahr PM-9 and MK-40, and for a Detonics Combat Master. Comfortable, secure, highly concealable, and cheap.

    I use a Fobus Ankle Holster for my S&W 442 J Frame and it is very comfortable, easy to conceal under your pant leg and has fantastic retention.

    Dittto...and it is the most concealable of all the ones mentioned since it uses a soft pouch instead of molded leather....mine is going on 8 years and holding up just fine....the strap is a pull thru design...only used for putting the gun in.

    Ken Null's ANK; in horsehide.

    The one I purchased from him in 1983, and which has been worn daily for most of the intervening 27 years, is still quite serviceable. In the 80s, there was NOTHING that came close to this one for quality and durability. While I haven't tried all of the current crop of various offerings, I've looked at many of them... and for my money, the ANK is still the best.
