I bought my wife the leather ankle holster for her LCR .38 for Christmas. So this morning before we decided to take a motorcycle ride up A1A, I ask if I could where it with her gun in it. I got to tell you, It was great. Now I am trying to decide if i want to get the holster for my 27 or get another LCR for me. Anybody carry your 27 in the Galco and if so, give me your thoughts. Thanks.

The Galco 'Ankle Glove' for the G26/27/33 is very nice. Watch out if you have larger than average calves, however...you may find they don't fit under your jeans! :cry:

I have the Ankle Glove for my S&W 642. It is very, very comfortable. I plan on picking one up this year for my G-26.

My day-to-day wardrobe includes Wrangler Cowboy-Cut jeans. If I am wearing low top shoes, the Galco Ankle Glove is worn, holding my Kahr CM9.

Very well concealed and outstandingly comfortable, the Ankle Glove is a good way to carry a back-up-gun.

People don't tend to notice minor bulges around other peoples' feet and ankles anymore than guns carried discreetly on one's waistband.

For the past two years, I've worn this rig at the State Fair of Texas and had no problems at all.

I have 2 ankle gloves, for PPK and G26/27, but I don't like them (both were free). I prefer the uncle mikes ankle holster about 10 to 1 over Galco. Uncle Mike's has a more secure buckle, holds the gun close and with less movement (and conceals better) and allows me to reposition the thumb break, since a pull-up snap works better than a thumb break when you have to pull your pants up to get to the gun. Not to mention I can buy 3 Uncle Mikes for the price of one Galco.

We issue a Glock 27 and a Galco Ankle Glove to each of our Officers for use as an off-duty gun and/or back-up gun while on-duty.

How well does it conceal while seated? I just got a DeSantis Apache ankle holster. So far I like it (wearing it right now). But it has had a slight tendency to slip down.

So I ordered the knee-strap to help keep this from happening, but I notice your Galco looks quite low. (Or is it just the photo?)

My Apache is for a small Taurus .38/.357 revolver and is elastic. Both the pouch for the pistol and the body of the band. I sit all day in a W/C so sitting concealment is very important for me.

And just a tip I read by Mas Ayoob. When you go to pull up your pant leg, grab ABOVE THE KNEE!!! If you knew that, fine. If you didn't, try it. Big difference.

As stated above, I wear Wrangler Cowboy-Cut jeans, and I buy them two inches long, to wear with cowboy boots and ropers. The photo showing the Ankle Glove concealed was taken while I was sitting down.

Normal length trousers would probably ride up too high while seated. As with all concealed carry, one has to dress around the gun, which results in some wardrobe changes for many.

Ditto. Love it too.

I have one for my j-frame and my 27. I have thick calves and no problem. I buy my pants 2'' longer so they don't ride up to high while sitting. the 2'' longer also adds so camo so you don't print while standing. the trick with the Ankle Glove is finding the ''sweet spot'', just tight enough but not uncomfortable, then marking it. also, it takes a bit getting use to wearing one but after that you will hardly know it there.

I carry my 27 in a DeSantis ankle quite a bit. Pair of sweat pants = no problem!

Love my Ankle Glove! My 642 rides rides comfortably in it. My previous Taurus 85 rode in one as a backup in my years doing uniformed security work. The Smith is even lighter and frankly you can almost forget your carrying a gun.

I carry my 27 in an ankle glove and love it. The first couple days are going to feel like you are walking funny but that feeling goes away and no body looks at our leg and says "What you carrying"?

I've used the ankle glove for over 10 years for on-duty back-up weapons. The first 3-4 years was with a G-27, since then it's been a S&W 642. It's carried both of them comfortably and securely. Through foot chases, fights, fence jumpin' etc... the guns have stayed in place.

I do like mine for my Glock 26. I don't use it much as I prefer OWB holsters.
