Ankle Holster for Pro Carry II

I am new to this so if there is another Thread on this please let me know. I am looking for an Ankle Holster for Pro Carry II 4" barrel. The only thing I could find is for a 3" barrel. Can anyone please give me any suggestions for a 4" barrel?

Sorry don't have an ankle holster, not mobile enough to reach it if needed.

Unless you have ankles like an elephant I think ankle carry a Pro and maybe even a Ultra model pistol would be difficult.

Oh and welcome to the site from Tennessee.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois weschan79. I don't think that you would find ankle carrying a 4" 1911 either very comfortable or easy to get too in a life threatening situation. Ankle holsters are usually used for carrying small backup guns.

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. I have to say, I have not seen an ankle holster for 1911 framed guns. As Chuck stated, usually for smaller backup guns, such as a Kimber Micro.

I tried an ankle rig with my little Colt .380. It always printed, made walking a chore, and it was a challenge to pull the pant leg up high enough to draw. I can't see giving an ankle holster another thought unless Big Bell Jeans come back in style. You'd never know this guy is packin' a ten inch Colt revolver.

A friend of mine carries one low on his ankle and pulls his sock over it. It's like carrying around your waist, very few people are ever going to notice it as they're are so few folks looking or expecting you to have a gun. It can be very much more in your mind that you're carrying than others looking. Also if your left handed buy it and then in a week if you hate it, you can give it to me.

Welcome to KT, I tried an ankle holster for a Springfield XD 40 3" and I hated the ankle carry, it always felt like it was sliding down. I didn't try a bunch of different holsters, I just gave up. Hope it works out better for you.

Thanks for all of your feed back. I was thinking ankle holster because I sit 90% of the day. How would you carry in this situation?

We need more information:
Where are you sitting, big or small office, vehicle, outside?
How are you dressed? Suit and tie, cargo pants, polo shirt, jeans and T-shirt?
Must you maintain concealment at all times?
Will you need to draw and fire your pistol from your seated position or just maintain concealment?

I think the key point here is, ankle carry "might" work for you if you pick a different (smaller) pistol. However smaller pistols have not worked for several members.

If for whatever reason you must use your "Pro" 4 inch pistol, then depending on the above questions, you could use a shoulder holster, inside waist band, outside waist band, deep concealment holster garment.

I use a strong side OWB holster for my CDP Ultra, sit a lot, I would have a hard time drawing and firing from my car but it is still the best for me. I don't think it would be any more difficult to CC a 4" pistol.

In the end you will have to decide.

My dad wanted a ankle holster too, I purchased this for him at xmas, https://www.bugbiteholsters.com and he likes it so far. Has been carrying a Ruger LC9s and a Shield 9, he said it pulls down a little but not uncomfortable. Just throwing this out.
