    Anyone ever use them? I have a Ruger LCP, and I need to go this route for some situations. Really interested in anyone's experience with the simple "wrap around" types, the ones with multiple straps are not what I'm looking for.

    I carry a Smith 642 in a Galco Ankle Glove. Very comfortable and I can often forget I'm wearing it.

    I was first licensed to carry in 1994 and my EDC from 1994 till 1997 was a Taurus M85 in a Galco AG122 with a calf strap to make sure it rode up high. I was working as an in-home salesman ... out late alone in both nice and questionable neighborhoods every evening, in and out of peoples living rooms, and concealed HAD TO BE really concealed. I found that using it without the calf strap had me tugging it back up where it belonged WAY TOO often. When I left that job I found much less need for that method of carry and haven't used that holster very much in the years since then and not at all since I retired a couple of years ago. Even so, I felt very comfortable at the time that I wasn't going to get myself fired for freaking out a customer when he/she discovered I was carrying. That just never was a problem.

    I have a like new galco that I can't wear as I break out in a heat rash. Other than the rash it worked like a champ, especially while sitting. Sometimes I would also wear an outter sock to go over the holster and part of the 442/642/640. The outter sock helps prevent "rocking" while not impeding my draw.

    Thanks for replies, I am pretty much looking at Galco and FOBUS at this point.

    Also, thanks to the Mod that moved this, I tried to find the right place for this, but I'm pretty new here.:(
