    My Open Letter to Wachovia

    Ankle Holster for XD40 4"

    imported post I love my XD40. The problem is there are times when on the hip or under the arm are not good options. So I would like an ankle holster for it, but have had little luck finding one. Anyone use a full size on the ankle? Problems, concerns, etc.? Thanks in advance.
