    Im getting ready to get a Ankle rig for my Vintage 1971 Chief's special Model 36.
    I have seen many out there and just looking for some feedback on them.
    Galco , Alessi , Kramer . ? What do you guys think ?

    Thanks

    I don't have any feedback, but I too am interested in hearing opinions as I have been shopping for an ankle rig for my '63 mod 36.

    Oh, you are going to pay dearly for a Kramer rig, but it is more comfortable than Galco, or Alessi, or my old Milt Sparks ankle rig for a Colt Mustang (not made anymore). I highly recommend the Kramer. I have one for a Colt .32, and just ordered one for a Colt Det. Special. It's the design, and sheep's wool lining that make it so comfortable. Fortunately, it will probably last a lifetime, so you only have to buy one. I have a Bianchi ankle holster for a .25 auto, and my Kramer rig for the Colt .32 is way more comfortable than packing the .25, mostly due to the slight difference in design. Quality and design make the difference.

    I've used De Santis ankle holsters for 25 years. I have several for J frames, PPK, G26, and S&W 469. They can be worn all day with no security or comfort problems. I'm talking the leather ankle holsters never tried the nylon ones.

    I'd post a link but their website is down now.

    Just looked at their website, and Tauris, for the money, might be a good deal. It only comes in black, and the Kramer only comes in cordovan/mahogany. Your need of color might dictate choice. Tauris uses sheepswool, too, so that is a plus over the felt & foam, as mentioned.

    I have a Galco Ankle Glove for my 442. It is comfortable and conceals well. I don't have any experience with the other ankle holster mentioned.

    I have spent dearly for multiple ankle rigs. My recommendation is to spend 20 bucks and buy a nylon/velcro one from one of the makers out there and give it a try. Two reasons for this: a) make sure you like carrying on your ankle b) if you are like me just find them more comfortable than a leather rig. Bill

    Very good advice ---- I have two ankle rigs --- I HATE THEM BOTH !!!! For one , they are SLOOOOWWW to draw from unless you are on the ground getting the boots put to ya !!! The other is they are a bit easy to spot ---- either the "bulge" or the way the person is walking. ANd if worn inside the leg/ankle , they can hit on your other ankle bone WHICH HURTS !!!!

    Spend $20 for a cheapie and see if you like that method of carry BEFORE spending more.

    I've had good experiences with the Renegade.
