    Ankle holster for an S&W Bodyguard 38?

    I've got an S&W Bodyguard .38 special that I'm going to start carrying as a BUG. I've been looking online at ankle holsters, but I'm getting confused on frame stuff. Not many holsters are specified for the Bodyguard 38. It's a small frame revolver and it has the Insight laser on the side.

    Does anyone else carry one of these in an ankle holster? Any recommendations?

    I have the gun but am not considering an ankle holster.

    Google led me to this Don Hume link.

    I have a 642 and I carry it in a Galco Ankle Glove without the calf strap.

    Thanks, guys. I wandered into my favorite sporting goods store today and found a De Santis Apache that I liked. Looking forward to trying it out in public soon.

    Try the Mitch Rosen ankle rig. It's a bit pricey, but IMHO, worth every penny.

    i just picked up my bg38 yesterday and love the gun. loved it when i first laid a left hand on it,,,left eye dominant,,,but right handed. i am versed shooting both left and right thank goodness..

    so, i sprung for a ankle holster at ffl dealer, an put bg38 into it an the laser infringes on full seating into the holster. its a good holster,,lambs wool around ankle,,,nylon too abrasive. i know a cobbler who can modify anything leather so im going to buy a nylon belt looped holster and have it mounted to ankle strap,,,

    really know way around this issue as not gonna be a large market for ankle holsters for this firearm as carry purpose backup...will let u know how it turns out...
