    Ankle Holster for S&W 642

    I am looking for comfortable ankle rig. Any ideas? Someone mentioned one with sheepskin inners to keep from chaffing, etc.

    I have a Galco ankle glove for my S&W 638 and it has served me well. I wear it without the calf strap and never had a problem.

    I recently got the boot extender and it's even more comfortable to wear over my boots. Just make sure the pants are not to tight.

    The offering from KL Null is one of the best out there.

    I've had a $140 custom ankle and I now carry my 442 in a Galco Ankle Glove AG-158 open top. No need for a calf strap. Retention is outstanding.

    The ankle glove is the most comfortable holster that I own. The neoprene is more comfortable than felt and the ability to taper the fit of the Galco trumps a single strap custom any day.

    I think Alessi makes the very best ankle holster but there is a wait for them.

    The Galco Ankle Glove is a good second. I use it for my 640 which is heavier and it works fine.

    The Alessi and Null are great. The Galco is pretty good.

    I use a gould and Goodrich(spelling?) ankle holster that works well. It has the sheepskin lining which I think helps alot in comfort and also has the calf strap.
