    I know nothing about that brand but a friend of mine has been ankle carrying a Taurus TCP lately, don't remember which one holster he bought, and he has made two important observations.

    1. The first time he tried to practice draw the pistol, the slide release button caught on an exposed seam or fold on the inside of the holster where it was sewed at the top, preventing the gun from being able to be drawn.

    2. Without an above the calf garter and strap, even that lightweight pistol causes him some discomfort if worn all day every day or at least 6 of 7 days. Consider a calf garter option.

    I know you can duct-tape half a brick to your ankle and walk around with it for a day to find out how any ankle holster works!

    Besides that, who wants to hop around on one leg in the middle of a life threatening confrontation trying to draw the gun you needed in your hand before the first hop!

    I can't comment on that particular holster, other than to say that Triple K is a "decent for the price" maker. An ankle holster can, under some circumstances, be a good place to carry a backup gun. Such hidden guns have no doubt saved the lives of LEOs and private citizens when the main gun was lost, taken away, shot dry, etc., so, although a little hyperbolic, it would not be out of line to call the holster a "Life Saver." I can think of no circumstance where I would want to carry my only gun in one, however.

    I pocket carry my LCP at work, but occasionally my pants pockets aren't large enough for pocket carry. On those days I'd like the option of the ankle holster rather than having it in my gym bag under my desk. It's easier to deploy a firearm that's on your person rather than in a bag away from you.
