For a right handed person which leg is an ankle holster supposed to be worn on?
Two choices here-- a) whatever works b) we all argue for the next 30 posts in the threadI have been wearing the same gun with the same ankle holster for the last 25 years on my right ankle on the outside. (deleted stuff for brevity). He said to put it on the inside of my left leg. That is what got me thinking maybe I have been doing it wrong all these years.
But you could grab it with your left hand with someone sitting on your chest.Two options for a right handed holster.
The first, and most common, is the inside of the left leg with the butt of the gun facing rearward.
The second, and one I prefer, is the inside of the right leg with the butt of the gun facing forward. While this does requre you to rotate your arm/wrist to draw it also allows you to draw with someone is sitting on your chest.
Place you ankle holster on the inside of your left leg, traditional style, and have someone sit on your chest like they were smashing your head into the pavement. Now try to reach around your attacker and across to your opposite leg. Now try it my way. I think you will find that while the rotation of the hand/wrist is a little more difficult, you can at least get to your gun.
True.But you could grab it with your left hand with someone sitting on your chest.
I wish there was somewhere I could try on other holsters. I have a Bodyguard with a Galco holster but it doesn't have the extra calf strap. At work I find it sliding down my leg and sitting on my ankle. It drifts down regardless of how tight I strap it.I've always carried on the inside of my left ankle...I also prefer the ankle holsters with the strap on top of your calf... If you have big calf muscles, you will probably need the calf strap to keep the ankle holster from sliding down onto your foot...
