    Do molded ankles print more?

    I have heard mention that molded ankle holsters print more than non molded. Any first hand experience with both?

    I am trying to decide between these for my M&P 40C:

    Desantis Die Hard
    Commerce Storefront B2C

    Desantis 044
    Commerce Storefront B2C

    Galco Ankle Lite
    Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters

    Use both the Ankle Lite, and the Ankle Glove.
    Cant say I notice a difference. But, I wear bootcut, relaxed Wranglers about 2" longer than my inseam measurement most of the time.

    DO you find one more comfortable? Do you like one better and why?

    To be perfectly honest, I like the Lite better. I suppose since the leather is not quite as thick or stiff, it 'molds' to my leg maybe a little better. Realize this stuff is all subjective, so what I say probably wont amount to much for you, but I hope it helps. You'll need to play around with the exact location of the rig to make it work. Due to my training and a great deal to my genetics, I have large calves. My rigs ride lower on my ankle than pictured in the ads. To aid in concealement, I just pull my sock on over the holster. May wear sox out a little faster, but they are cheap sox anyway. Dark socks, shoes and dress slacks ( and black gun, either a 442 or g27) are even easier to conceal in.

    I hope this has been useful.
