Does anyone know of a real, quality ankle holster for the LCP? I bought one from one of the major plastic manufacturers hoping it would turn out to be a viable option, and it's crap. Uncomfortable, unstable, unyielding. The plastic holster itself is a poor fit for the LCP, although it retains well enough, but holds the gun a good half inch off the ankle, which is not conducive to comfort or concealment. The wide velcro strap does little to stabilize the holster and I gave up on it quickly after having a gun around my foot more than once in a fairly public place.

So I need something that is leather or good cloth/nylon, will mold to my leg, and has a secure method of retention (like a garter that goes around the top of my calf).

I would buy something from my usual leather supplier, but they don't make ankle holsters. Mind you this is always a backup gun for me, I'm just looking for an alternative to pocket carry. I'm carrying a big .45 on the hip 24/7 anyway.

i tried the generic off the rack,black nylon, velcro adjustable straps, leg pad, and adjustable garter length strap for maybe $20-$25 and have been happy with it. Can move the holster into position then strap it up with the strap and it stays put.
The gun holder itself could be alittle better than it is . Just a strechy strap that will wear out in the future.

I don't run with it on but all my daily activities can be done and no one is the wiser........for the $ i'm happy.....just cheap. ;)

I use one made buy Bulldog. Had to resew once (holster to wrap) but have had no trouble since. If I were to buy another one I would just take it to a sewing shop and have them sew with nylon from the start and not worry about it. I think it was about $8.00 and it is very comfortable. Sometimes I forget I have it on.

Don't know if Galco makes an ankle glove for the LCP yet, but both my father and I carry our Kahr P9s in one and can't reccomend it highly enough. About $65. Also, the Fobus one looks nice, and I've had good experience with them.
Don't let anyone here try to talk you out of ankle carry, either. I can get my Kahr out of an ankle holster with jeans on faster than I can get it out of my IWB holster.
