Default Ankle holster input

I have a Kel Tec 380 and am interested in getting an ankle holster for it. I would probably only wear it to church. I normally carry either a .40 Kahr or a spur-less .357 in my waist but not to church due to carrying kids and diaper bags in and out. I have not researched ankle holsters at all but figured I would ask here first if anyone has any firsthand experience. What brands or styles would you recommend?

I have been considering the exact same thing for the same application. I am going to tag along on the thread. Thanks!

Assuming you have a P3AT why not just a pocket holster? Its light and small enough and the pistol will be much easier to get to. They even offer a simple clip that attached to the frame. I liked it for my P32 I use to pocket carry.

As long as knickers don't come back in style (we miss you, Payne Stewart)
you just need to go light. I wore my .380 in a "Mikes" cordura w/ Velcro back when I was in plain clothes.
On a hot summer day you might get a little sweaty, but otherwise comfortable.

Ankle holsters I always found uncomfortable and you must have them strapped down in a certain way and secure so that no mis step will pop the pistol out. after a few try's I went with my LCP in my " large " specially selected dress pants pocket and gave up on ankle holsters. even a balled up tissue will hide the outline of the LCP - JMO

Murph I have a remora you can borrow to see if you like it. It won't fit your kahr but it will fit an air weight or ultra light. Also look at the desantis high rise with thumb break.

My input is that unless it is for carrying a backup to your primary weapon an ankle holster is useless. By the time you are able to access it you and your family is dead several times over.

Carry your keltec in your front pocket.

I agree with everybody else. Keltecs and LCPs in the pocket. Much easier to get to if you need it.
And they weigh almost nothing so pocket carry is easy.

Thanks for the input guys. I guess I will look into the pocket holster idea. I have the little clip on mine but it does not work for me with a tucked in shirt. Emerald Ghost, are you referring to an Uncle Mikes ankle holster? I am not ruling the ankle holster out yet. Like I said, I have not looked into any holsters elsewhere yet. I have plenty of guns but have not really been active in the "gun scene" for several years.
