    I couldn’t conceal a Glock 33 on my ankle. A 19? Maybe in some 70’s bell bottoms.

    I couldn’t conceal my 27 on my ankle either. The galco holster I linked above supported the weight the best. It just bulged too much.

    As a cop I wore a S&W airweight .38 revolver for years. It was unnoticeable to the public and me wearing it. When I changed to the Glock in .357Sig it was a no brainer to wear the 33 on the ankle. Only problem was it looked like I taped a brick to my ankle and it just didn’t feel as good as the .38.
    I can see doing a 43 but anything bigger is a non-starter in my opinion.

    Yes concealing I thought might be hard. I only wear blue jeans so that likes movement.

    No joke. I’d unload, put on long sock, & tape to your ankle. Just to see how it prints. Before buying an ankle rig.

    +1. I used to ankle carry, but anything bigger than a PM9 or CM9 printed. I'm a big guy (6'3", 38x36 pants and size 15EEEE shoe) and even in the galco ankle gloves, my g26's printed; I can't imagine trying to conceal a 19 there. Fwiw, my pants were almost always carhartt painter-type jeans, certainly not skinny jeans or anything.

    I get that some folks do G26 and bigger guns that way, but laws of physics apply and that's just a lot of bulk around the ankle. The fact that a gun's legally concealed, doesn't always mean it's effectively concealed.

    No; you should see my sons. When they come to visit, it's like Jurassic Park in our living room. Big, lumbering omnivores, constantly looking for something to eat.

    I use the sticky holster and shove it into my boot with no problems. Good luck.

    IMHO, an ankle holster is not a viable carry option for a PRIMARY weapon, only for a backup to be used if the primary and RAPIDLY ACCESSIBLE weapon runs dry or malfunctions. Ankle carry is not only slow on presentation, it's also awkward and temporarily immobilizes one as one is accessing it. Please take this as a humbly offered opinion and not as an attack on ankle carriers.

    The only time I ankle carry as a primary is when I wear a suit. Also ankle is great if you drive a lot. Other then that I generally agree it should be a back up carry location.

    Years ago I tried ankle carrying a 5 shot j frame revolver.
    That lasted about a week, couldn't stand it.
    I can't imagine what a G19 would feel like strapped to my ankle.
