I think @ThirdShift had a thread on this. Positive results. I am interested in the concept too.
This is a discussion on New Ankle Holster within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; anybody have one or tried one of these? if so,what do think? I'm thinking about trying one if I get some good responses. Thanks in ...

I wear one to carry my BUG. Love it.
Here's the thread Liberty is referring to. The "Now Carrying" title is in response to my review further down. Rather than start a new thread, I just edited the first post.
I tried ankle carry once. It was extremely uncomfortable. This, however, looks like a do-able design, if it doesn't make one sweat too much in Summer months

I ankle carry a couple of times each week, but only when I am wearing boots. I have never attempted to ankle carry while wearing ordinary shoes. I wear a G26 in an Alessi ankle holster, which is a very high quality holster.
I ankle carry primarily for when I am riding in a car, if I need to draw the weapon. At the same time, I also pocket carry for when I exit the vehicle. I would not want to have to ankle carry on a daily basis, or depend on ankle carry as my primary means of carry.
I'm with Joe Biden - you can't have 50 clips in a weapon!
Learning occurs only after repetitive, demoralizing failures.

I also ankle carry occasionally in a Fobus Ankle rig. Not to bad after you get used to it. If you do this you really need to practice your draw. It can be kinda tricky and needs to be practiced.

Thats a calf holster, it's nowhere near the ankle.
I ankle carry 5 days a week. I carry a g26 in a Galco ankle glove (used to carry in a apache). I wear boots and the gun is inside the boot. Practicing drawing from the holster with my setup is barely doable. Having it up that high seems ridiculous. Just my 2 cents. There is a thread somewhere on here where we discussed carry at work.
The neoprene will be hot and make you sweat.
Ankle carry will always be uncomfortable at first, your adding weight to your ankles, it takes a good week or 2 to get used to it.

Looks too high up on the leg for me.
I use a Uncle Mike's or a DeSantis Apache for my PPS M2 and now my
beautiful 45 caliber Bond Arms masterpiece.

It makes me wanna' carry...TWO of 'em!
Velcro (break away?) on the lower pant seams would speed access. Or maybe wear a smaller size on my forearm under a foul-weather jacket? I've carried a sleeved ring-dagger before (ring just above my stainless watchband clasp) and it's quick as a wink, totally unexpected, Ta-DAAAA (surPRISE).
If you (pun intended) pull-the-trigger on one, please provide a full review!
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
I have been wearing my ppsm2 officially for 4months daily for 12hrs in a Desantis apache ankle holster.its a great way to carry my backup. I forget its there I love it and I have no problem with the tab that some people had said was cutting there leg. I didn't sweat in it or develop and redness or rash.
