9 mm for ankle carry Login/Join

I've been carrying a P3AT in a Galko Ankle Glove for a few years, but I'd like to replace it with something a little more reliable, since it's become my primary carry. Looking for recommendations for a single-stack 9 light and small enough.




"I've spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here." -- Ronald Reagan, Farewell Address, Jan. 11, 1989

PM9 or its cheaper (and nearly identical ) brother the CM9. I have both but have not done ankle carry in many years.

I have two friends who ankle carry M&P Shields when they want deep concealment.

The Sig P938 or new P365 are smaller & lighter than most other 9mm. May well suit your needs.

I carry a Glock 43 on my ankle 5 days per week. Other than a J frame, it’s the only gun that has been comfortable on my ankle.

My Kahr PM9 started to malfunction after 2 years. Kahr was not vey helpful in solving problem. Glock 43 has been very reliable for last 2 years. It is the same size length and height as j frame snub with the flush magazine.

Another vote for the P938. I like the Bugbite holster with a 6 rd mag in the gun and a 7 rd mag in the mag pocket on the holster.


Mostly 9mm:
P226 Enhanced Elite
P938 SAS w/Hogue rubbers
P320 Compact w/subcompact grip
P320 RX Compact
P225 two-tone
Beretta Cx4 Storm
Dan Wesson V-Bob

Got a Sig P290RS. WHile I haven't tried it in an ankle holster, with the short magazine, it should work. My PPK did, and it was probably larger.

+1 for the PM9. I've carried one in a renegade holster for over 15 years

My P290RS carries great in an ankle holster and prints less than my J Frame does.

Walther PPS might also be something you want to look into.

I now carry the G43 but for many years carried the Kahr PM9 without any issues. Either one will serve you fine.

I've been ankle carrying (above boots) a Glock 26 in a Galco Ankle Glove daily for the past 8 years. I don't even notice that it's there anymore.
