Moving to a new downtown office made me decide to start packing a BUG to my Glocks. Yesterday I ordered a no lock S&W 442 that I'd prefer to ankle carry for several reasons. I really, really dig the Alien Gear ankle holster but they don't make them for any revolver models. I'm looking for suggestions for something comfortable and secure.
Superb, awesome quality. So good that I wrote the company, which I rarely do. It's every bit the quality of the Galco at half the price. Desantis has better CS, too. I know that one from personal experience.

After trying my first Galco Ankle Glove for a g26, I switched my other 2 ankle rigs to that. For my Kahr PM9 I have the Galco Ankle Lite (I think that's the name). Great rigs. I had an Allessi, and even though it's a top quality holster I hated that the ankle strap is not flexible and as much as I tried to cinch tighten the strap it was loose in 5 mins. Really disappointed in that. Look for a brand like the Galco that has a stretchy band that cinches tight and conforms to your leg.
If you like the Alessi design, I would also look at Ritchie Holsters. I have been using one for about 5 years with a PM9 and have been very pleased. Skip Ritchie was Lou's partner for a number of years and builds a great holster at a slightly lower price point.
