    Yeah I am a Newbie to carry options.

    Thanks in advance
    If this your primary gun then don't carry it in an ankle holster.....get a hip holster for it instead.......trying to get to an ankle holster is a good way of getting your face kicked in and it is too slow.....God forbid you have to draw it against a knife weilding assailant.....most cops carry an ankle holster for their back up gun and most likely will draw it when they are on the ground where it is easier to get to....I had a few of my buddies drop their guns from their ankle holsters while chasing suspects....they are a waste of money

    With all due respect to everyone, the question was not if he should carry on his ankle but rather which ankle.

    Yeah but he did state that he was a newbie to carrying...so I gave him reasons not to bother and save his money.

    Ankle carry is not my everday method, but it does have its place. The company Christmas party this past weekend. You bet, I carried in an ankle holster. It was the best option, close contact with strangers, hugs, and all that stuff.

    Everyone evaluates the options and chooses that which is best for them. We are not all the same, and in some situations, ankle carry is a good option, better than going without. For some, it is the only option.

    Right handers typically wear the holster on the inside of the left leg. To properly wear the holster and avoid the slipping/falling down issue, strap on the holster empty, about 1 -2 inches above the ankle joint (assumes no boots, just shoes). Tighten the stap as tight as you can get it. Insert the weapon into the holster, and you are good to go. Some folks require the calf strap. I'm fortunate in that I don't need it.
