The consensus is that a right handed person carries on the inside of the left leg. That being said, I never knew and have carried for 25 years on the outside of my right leg.
I am right handed and I wear mine on my inside left ankle.
ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

I ware mine on the inside left ankle it just seems to work best for me being right handed.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
Just to throw in my opinion also I am right handed and carry on inside of left leg. Found it to be the most comfortable and also that my pants seem to be baggy enough there to hide it, moreso than on the outside for me.
I'm a lefty so right hand leg works 4 me
The best place to have an ankle holster is in the garbage can.
Ankle holsters are a lousy way to carry a gun you can't get to.
Well here is another vote for ankle carry. I'm right handed and carry on my inside left leg and have done so for almost 15 years.
I have also drawn from this position a dozen times by simply pulling up my pant leg within a split second. Of course I have practiced this move over the years and have it down pretty good. There are numerous times that I can not wear an IWB/OWB holster and this is the best way to carry without being noticed....who looks down at your ankles?
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
I agree it can be less than ideal but it still beats not carrying at all.
Anyway, I’m right-handed and it felt more ergonomic on the outside of my right leg. Even if I could wear it without it sliding, I found it too restricting. As I mentioned elsewhere, try going a day or even half a day without crossing your legs and it will drive you crazy!

I am harsh and to the point about some things.
Ankle holsters are TV/movie stuff. There are very few applications for them in the real world.
Actually, there are a lot of 'real world' apps for the ankle rig. Application and training being HUGE factors.
A very viable option if one is seated. Either driving, or at a table. Its very doable w/the right trouser leg cut, and w practice. From my own experience, its quicker from seated while in a vehicle as one can just put the pant leg in between the grip and the leg for quick access instead of having to lean forward and fight a seatbelt for a behind the hip gun, or straightening out by leaning back and trying to fit a hand in a pocket for pocket carried gun. While seated at a table, ex dining, one can access the gun not just easily, but w/out letting anyone know what one is doing.
If one argues that ankle carry does not allow a fast draw, then I concur. However, the majority of people willing to carry a primary or second gun this way know its limitations, and will strive to be aware enough of a potential threat to not get caught in a quickdraw contest.
Ankle is indeed a most viable option for edc, and most assuredly for a second gun if one's schedule is primarily while seated.
..oh, and Bill, absolutely gorgeous knives.
