    Question Need Holster Advice: Ankle Holster for Ruger LCR

    My wife wants to start ankle carry for her Ruger LCR, specifically while on horseback with boots. I have never explored the alternative at all, and have no idea where to begin in terms of fit, quality, materials or the like!

    I would appreciate it if those of you that ankle-carry would jump in here and help educate us!

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have a lot of experience to offer, but have been doing a lot of reading about holsters. I can tell you that Remora is a very well thought of brand, is fairly inexpensive, and has models that go from ankle to pocket to waistband. Remora 8L

    I ankle carry my LCR in the Galco Ankle Glove with Calf Strap. It's the only ankle holster I have ever owned, but it is very comfortable. I see no reason not to recommend it.

    I dunno what's going on, but I'm a newcomer here. If I'd looked at your post count, I might not have responded myself, because you'd probably already know about Remora convertibles.

    I can say that just ordered an LCR XS and am going to get a Remora 8L to facilitate carrying my 38-3 as a BUG, whether ankle or pocket.

    I have a Blackhawk with a calf strap. I have put a G26 in it and had no problems with it falling down or anything.

    They aren't the most comfortable thing to wear for 14+ hours at a time as the velcro can dig a little but no complaints. Definitely worked effectively when waist carry wasn't practical and unless you know what to look for, it would go unnoticed.

    Thanks for the input to date!

    What about Remora's? I've never looked at them nor have I ever seen one. Good stuff?

    Given the low volume of feedback here, this noob will venture in again.

    I've been seriously considering Remora to be able to move from ankle-pocket-4:00-11:00. Searching this forum for "Remora" turns up 5 pages of posts, with only a couple of negative remarks; they're mostly glowing testimonials. But one of the negative posts is very disturbing, having to do with a Remora dislodging from the waistband:

    This is how I've carried my BUG for the past three years, almost daily. It works for me.

    Or a top of the boot holster for 10.00 like an IWB. These holsters seat the gun deep so it will be more secure

    +1 Galco Ankle Glove. I've never used an ankle holster, but at another site, this one was considered the most secure and comfortable. A bit pricey.

    I have a 5-Shot Gunleather ankle rig for my Sig P238 and I must say that it is very comfortable.

    Thank you for all of the suggestions!

    My cute wife studied all of the links, all of the options, and decided on the Bianchi for her Glock 26. Must have been those cute hairy man legs in the YouTube Video that sold her, Boricua.

    She had decided, unknown to me, to switch to her G26 while riding, so the Bianchi will work. Like most of us, she'll probably revisit this thread and add a couple more to her list of carry options when all done.

    Thanks again!!!!!!!!

    Disturbing experience with Remora
    My guess is that because it was appendix carry, bending over caused his thigh to push the holster up out of position. This is especially likely if the person is a little "gravitationally challenged" - the thigh pushes up while the tummy pushes out.

    I carry with a Remora at 3:00. Yesterday I was doing lots of bending, twisting, up and downs, etc. while assembling and installing a backyard greenhouse. During that entire time, I don't think my Remora moved even one millimeter. My only caution is that you need to remember that it's not attached to anything when you drop your pants in a restroom. I haven't tried a Remora ankle holster, but I sure do like it for IWB.
