    Suggestions

    Hey bunch got a general question for all ccw holders. Im currently in da process of becoming an LEO however in da mean time wanting to do armed security. Now my concern is not really liking the idea of carrying a standard issued weapon from a company or carrying just my personal pistol. So now im in the market for a pistol/ankle holster combo. Would prefer a semi-auto over a wheel gun but im open to suggestions

    Okay, I have to ask. Are you serious?

    Not to be a male genital appendage, but I have to echo the above post. Law enforcement is a profession, and being an LEO means being a professional. Professionalism begins at home.

    Not saying this to criticize, but to let you know that the people who will interview you for an LEO position can tell who is a professional, and who is not. Funny thing is, the ones who are not professional often have no idea that they are not viewed as a professional. To them, poor diction or poor spelling or poor dress is the norm, and they think it's ok to be that way.

    You probably already know this, but "im" has a capital "I" and an apostrophe in it. Sentences have periods at the end. If you start communicating correctly (written, verbal, or non-verbal), the habits you develop will translate to the things you do on a daily basis, and will enable the world and any potential employer to view you in a more positive light.

    I know this post sounds critical, but I do not mean it to be as such. I hope you interpret it in the way it is intended, and it's intent is to see you have a better chance at becoming what you want to be.

    p.s. get a Glock 26 or a Kahr MK9 or CW9....

    By no means do i take what u said in bad context, especially considering it to be true. Like i said before posting from a cell phone so typing a post on it is a PITA. Thanks for ur response any suggestions on an ankle holster?

    Does it have to be an ankle holster? I've never really liked the idea of them...too much movement, you either run the risk of you gun flying out, or it needs to be locked up so tight you'll never get to it in time. Granted, I've never used one...so I could be talking out my ass.

    But what about a pocket holster? Throw a J-frame .38 spl in there, a Kel-Tec P3AT/Ruger LCP, or a pocket 9 from any of the good manufacturers?

    If you decide to go with an ankle rig, the concensus in the past here has been with the Galco rigs. Galco is a forum sponsor, so you can click on their link at the top of the page... but they seem to have the best selection, and NEVER a question of quality. If you will be wearing daily it's about quality, not price...

    I no ur pain postin via fone... lol That's why I use my office computer.

    Just call Galco and order directly from them. That's what I do.

    Don't fear the Kel Tec, they are good guns. Check out the Section in the main section for some pics and comments... Decent info there.
