    Depends on what type of pain? I have had friends whose legs were rubbed raw by ankle rigs and others who wore them so tight it did cause pain and almost nerve damage. A good thickly padded rig should not cause an issue but unfortunately some are hardly padded at all.

    after 30 years wearing one with a model 36 and/or model 60 i get leg pains. i have used just about every brand and type of ankle holster made over the years. the ankle holster carries my "bug" on duty. the last three years was when it started. so now i can go two or three days with it on then i get some pain. then i go several day off. then back again. even started useing a p3at in a ankle rig, same thing. must be old age.

    Thanks.

    It is not rubbing raw. It is internal pain in the back of my calf. It must be from the straps constant constriction. I did not know if this was a common problem with ankle carry or I am having a unique situation. The gun is a Colt Pocket Lite and it is in a Unckle Mike's ankle holster using two straps.

    Thanks,

    I've never had any pain with my Renegade Ankle Holster.

    I've got a Desantis rig I sometimes use with my S&W 642. The last time I wore it it kept sliding down and pinching where my shin meets the bridge of my foot. I've also noticed it gets uncomfortable if I wear it for more than just a few hours. I've thought about getting an Alessi or Kramer model but it's a lot of expense for something I use so rarely.
