    Looking to purchase a hand gun that is sufficient to neutralize human threats, but is concealable in an ankle holster? Have my waist gun, but sometimes clothing doesnt conceal it all that well in warmer weather.

    If you like a .380 the Kimber is a sweet shooting one and nice for an ankle holster:

    Kansas It's better to wear out than to rust out.
    The Ruger LCP 380 is a decent little gun. It's slim which is nice for ankle wear.

    I wear the same pistol winter and summer. In winter I wear a Carhart vest for warmth and it conceals well. In summer I wear T shirts untucked. I use an IWB holster and have no trouble concealing a full size M&P .40 with a Vortex Venom reflex sight. I’ve been carrying a Shield for a couple years now but I like the full size M&P better.
    If I had an ankle gun I’d probably shoot my self in the foot, or run out of air bending my fat butt over to wrestle it out. ;) An ankle gun needs to be light, and the Ruger LCP probably fills that bill nicely.

    One thing to keep in mind is that guns in ankle holsters get amazingly dirty. If you are not fussy about gun maintenance then I would be considering a revolver. Light weight is also important. My wife likes the S&W 642. For your purposes it might be a good choice.
