    I'd have trouble getting away with carrying one on my belt so I think my first carry gun will be in an ankle holster. I was thinking about getting a S&W airlight .38 or a Kel-tec 9mm. What do you guys like best?

    those new keltecs look like they'd be real nice for that. or a DE .50, but i think only oprah could get away w/ that one.

    I thought about getting a glock 30, too, but it's a bit too bulky

    Get an IWB holster if you have trouble carrying on your belt.

    For my job I have to wear dress shirts or polo shirts and they have to be tucked in. In the winter I can get away with wearing a jacket and then the IWB would probably be fine. During the summer, though, there's no way I could conceal a gun on my waistband.

    People either like ankle carry, or they don't. There really is no in between. I can't stand it, at all.

    As for airlite revolvers, they're not all they're cracked up to be. I've seen dozens of people buy them, put a few rounds through them, then sell them. They don't like the recoil for the most part. It's quite a bit more than a standard revolver, for obvious reasons.

    Do your research as always with any gun purchase.

    Just get a tuckable IWB, belly band, or Thunderwear.

    I wonder how that feels when you sit. Doesn't look like it would feel nice rubbing against the other peeshooter.

    I carry a keltec P32 in a pocket holster a lot of the time. I also have a Colt Det. Special that rides on my ankle from time to time. If you go ankle carry do yourself a favor and get an Alessi ankle holster, they're some of the best around and very comfortable.

    BTW I am buying an airweight .38 this week.

    Kel-tecs are so cheap. I guess I need to shoot one to convince myself why I SHOULDN'T want to carry one

    Honestly you should try one. My Keltec P32 almost feels like a toy, but it's a quality gun. I've shot a lot of round thru it and trained with it for ~500 rounds at a Defensive Handgun class using it as a BUG in a pocket holster. It's every bit as acurete as anygun I own needs to be, more acurete than me.
