    How many of you LEO's carry backups out there?

    Any what type of holsters have you found work/dont work?

    I have a g26 and I'm thinking of going with the Galco Ankle Glove or an Alessi ankle holster but Ive never worn an ankle holster and I'm not really sure how thats gonna work out. Are there any options out there for strapping it up to your body armor?

    Amy suggestions/stories/experiences?

    I know several guys who carry on their vest under their uniform shirts...but all of them have had their wives sew holsters onto the vest carrier...i use an uncle mikes ankle holster for my j-frame

    I also have a galco ankle holster that works well, but it seems to be more suited for off duty or low boots...the uncle mikes will fit around my boot but the galco wont

    thanks for the suggestions! I like the vest attachment and now its just a matter of figuring out the best way to do it. I like the BUG Pocket and may go with that but Ive read mixed reviews on it so far. Ill see what I can find.

    Beat me to it. Someone showed me the B.U.G. holster the other day, and I thought it was pretty cool. I don't know if I want to swap my zippered shirt to velcro, though. I'm still thinking about doing a vest holster or putting a pocket holster on my weak hand side for a 380 KelTec or Ruger. Right now I carry a blade hidden on both sides in case someone gets on top of me fighting for my gun.

    I carried a Glock 27 strapped down tight in an ankle holster for about a week until I had to chase someone. I didn't like the extra weight on my ankle, and I figured it would be harder to draw than other options.

    I carry a S&W 642 in a Galco Ankle Glove and previously carried a Glock 27 in one as well. Never a problem. It's remained secure through foot pursuits, fights and fence jumping. If ankle carry is not your cup of tea, the holster used for an Uncle Mikes Belley Band will work well with your vest side straps threaded through it.
