    Boot holster

    I like to wear cowboy boots a lot and am wondering if there is a holster made for cowboy boots? This way I and carry conceal sometimes.

    They are made but I haven't found one that worked if you are talking about a clip on style. I use an ankle band instead. I wear both slip on and lace up boots with the ankle band.

    But how do ankle holsters work with skinny jeans?

    What kind of gun do you plan to carry?

    Years ago I worked for a buddy doing custom leather and canvas work and bought one of those .38 double barrel Derringers. The high top stove pipe boots were popular (square toe, 2 brass rings with leather straps around the ankle). I soaked some good garment leather in warm water, wrapped the gun in plastic wrap and stitched around the gun on the outside of left boot and let it dry. Worked very well.

    A buddy (with skinny legs) use to use a nylon clip on IWB holster to carry a J frame S&W inside his left boot. Lots of options out there.

    This looks pretty uncomfortable to me.

    I used to carry a pig sticker in my boot when young. I stopped that habit after I lost my knife while wrastling a suspect from a high speed chase on I-55. Could have been bad if the suspect had picked it up, fortunately a trooper spotted the loose knife and grabbed it before something bad could happen. Ankle or boot is the last place I would carry, but YMMV.

    Is wrastling like wrestling? I thought wrastling was done behind closed doors....

    Maybe if you wrestled him instead of "wrastled" him you would've won and not lost your "pig sticker" (why would u stab yourself? )

    I used wrastling because I knew some dufus would be along shortly to make something of it...
