      For those of you who go with the ankle holster:

      What kind works best? How to best set one up?

      How big a pistol can you get away with on the ankle? I read a ridiculous detective book wherein the lead character carried a Beretta mini-Cougar in an ankle holster. He would have walked like an extra from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD in reality.

      Definitely fits under the "Something Else Altogether" category.

      Must draw some stares in the grocery store, though...

      Around the house, and when the outfit won't permit carry of my larger guns, I carry a P3AT in my front pocket...actually had to draw it recently when some guy walked into my house!!

      I prefer to carry my HK USPc 9mm or XD-9sc IWB in a Crossbreed Super Tuck. I can even get away carrying my Beretta 96 in the same holster- it's great!

      I don't understand the classifications in the poll. .38 is classified as a light caliber while .357 is classified as a heavy caliber. Plus, my 9mm carry ammo has 127gr bullets while my .357 carry ammo is typically 125gr, but I normally carry 110gr .38sp ammo in my snubby.

      Sorry for the confusion. When I ranked them, I really put them in terms of what I think are harder hitting, as opposed to bullet weight. I should have used different nomenclature. In my own little warped mind, I put the 9mm, .380, and .38 in about the same category , with the "mouseguns" in the .22 to .32 range.

      In the heavier-hitting calibers I put the .40, .357, .357 sig and .45 in roughly the same categories. I think most would agree those are recognized as a bit more powerful than a .380, .38 and 9mm, which in turn are recognized as a bit more powerful than a .32, etc.

      Again, this is the way I rank them in my mind, as opposed to anything an expert might have to say about them. Again, sorry for the confusion, but it made for easier grouping in the poll questions. At least to me.....

      I also notice that ankle holsters are not a very popular option, though I found one that seems to work better than any others I've come across. It's the Galco Cop ankle band.

      Anybody else tried one? Impressions?

      Like the Texas guys said.............summer seems to be all the time with maybe the exception of from Thanksgiving to Valentine's Day if we're lucky! I prefer to carry my Colt .45 Defender IWB and my P7 on the belt or IWB when it's too warm for my Colt Commander OWB (covered by jacket, etc.). I like to carry the biggest caliber gun that will work for the season.

      No handgun, no holster yet.

      I keep thinking about it though, especially since I am in the southern half of Florida by the Gulf coast. Humidity is year-round ('cept for those brief periods right after a hurricane comes through), and like in Texas there is really only a brief period of time where cold-weather-wear is realistic. Worse yet is I have a slim build, so my clothing is even more limited.

      The only place I really wear long anything is at work (slacks and short-sleeve button-up shirt), so ankle is an option, as is any dark gun with a dark IWB holster (since I wait tables, I can easily hide it behind the apron if it's too noticable at my hip. When I'm not working, I'll probably be carrying IWB and not caring overmuch how "concealed" "concealed" is; so long as it suits the law, it's fine by me, since the more "concealed" a weapon is the a) less it deters crime, and b) less easy it is to draw.

      I'll have to call the local LEOs' office to see if open-carry is an option in Florida, since I can't seem to find any yay-or-nay laws to clarify.

      If thats what you are truly wanting to do then look more into a small games lic. Not sure if that works in florida but here to open carry all you need is a small game permite. Hope this helps

      1911

      I have carried a 1911 on and off for the last 20 years. I try other guns now and then but I allways come back to a 4 - 41/4" 1911.
      Right now I am carrying a Colt Combat Commander with a hard Chrome finish (I will rust a gun F-A-S-T). I wear Galco Gunleather exclusivly. I prefer a USA in the spleen carry but sometimes go to the hip(Royal Guard) or shoulder (Miami Classic).

      BAC. One musician that I work with carries a Kel-Tec P-3AT in a "pocket wallet" in his right rear pocket. He has "something else" (I don't know what) "in the truck". He plays Bass, so he stands while working. He disguises it with a piece of paper sticking above it, so that it looks like an over-stuffed wallet.
      We work mostly in Pinellas, and Manatee Counties.

      Huh. Honestly, I keep forgetting the tiny pocket guns.

      No open-carry policy in Florida, too, I've found. Which is alright, makes the missus less anxious (she doesn't care much for guns, trying to help her get over that but we're on vastly different schedules).

      I suppose I'll default to IWB carrying, but ankle seems to hold interest for me also. How secure are ankle holsters?

      BAC I forgot to mention. In Florida, a C.W.P. is not valid in any establishment that serves alcoholic beverages. I think that includes employees. I know of one bartender who carries in her boot. When I asked her if that was legal, she said.....well I won't print what she said. But, you should check into it. Of course if you don't serve booze, it's a moot point.
      Also, as long as I'm here, a "belly band" is another option that wasn't mentioned. And consider Middle Of Back. It might keep someones coke out of your gun.

      I've heard that too, actually, so it's funny you mention that.

      I was speaking to one of the restaurant's bartenders recently and she mentioned the same thing. I believe it must the the establishment's owner's gun, and on his or her person. The woman I spoke with also said this was a national thing, too, but I'm not sure where to find a law to verify it (becoming less and less internet savvy, it seems).
