That was the day they both stop carrying on their ankle and as a result, I do not recommend them. Just my 2 cents.
Cuey, you might want to reconsider the ankle holster upon reading this earlier post of mine. I only used an ankle holster off duty and it was used infrequently at that. Since I've retired, I've never used it. That is mostly because I'd rather have the 11 rounds of 9mm and an extra mag of 10 than 5 rounds of .38 and a speed loader with 5 more.
