GunSox- new ankle holster Shot Show 2019

Post by Hiker »

So as I was strolling that new vendor (one day only) section of Shot Show, I came across this new technology design for both an ankle holster and calf holster. The design uses compression fabric similar to the kind used is sports bras. The big thing is that it doesn't jiggle around like so many ankle holsters do. As it turns out, the woman who developed it lives in Lexington KY (my home)

The most bizarre thing... only one place to buy them in AL, one in GA, and two in FL.

I wore an ankle holster for many years. I think this could be good, but wonder how hot it gets.

I don't know, it does say it wicks moisture. If they are not too expensive I plan to get one and try it out.

Thanks for the report! I'm always interested in better ways of carrying concealed. :)

OK, so I had a chance to hold one of these in my hot little hand. It looks to be well made with the bulk of it being compression fabric (think sports bra but a little thicker) with what I am guessing to be a piece of neoprene between the gun and one's leg.

My big problem with it is that it's 90 bucks. No more that I would ever use an ankle holster it's too much for me.

I found it at Galls Police Supply store, although their online store doesn't list this product.

Thanks for checking those out!

I looked all over to find a price on those. $90? If it becomes successful, others will offer something similar for less at some point. They look like a good idea.

I have tried many different ankle holsters, but the DeSantis holsters were the best for me. I wore them for years. I'll stick with what I have for now.
