    Holster for Taurus M85

    Can anyone suggest a good holster for Taurus M85 for concealed carry?
    Since that would be a backup I would prefer an ankle holster.

    Just about any J Frame S&W Holster will work for a Model 85 Taurus five shot..
    If you have a 856 they use Ruger SP101/Colt Detective Special holsters..

    An ankle holster for an M85?
    Where do you get your pants, from a 70's retro store?

    Yeah back when bell bottom pants where the thing you could get away with ankle carry & even then an Airweight 642/442 worked the best.

    I've been looking at different OWB holsters lately for my M85C, Still can't decide..
    There's a local guy who has this holster for $35, It rides really high though, Might be great for sitting in a vehicle.. Looks to be molded to a S&W 640 Pro..
    What do you think of it?? Too Much stuff happening currently to really even care anyhow..
    Good Luck with the Holster ARKATYKATS

    Hey OP, if you don't already use an ankle holster, get a leg weight and walk around with it for awhile before you carry your M85. The biggest way to tell if someone's using an ankle holster is just to watch them walk. The leg weight will help you break the habit first.
    PT22, 85 Poly, 865, 605, M44.... what's next?!

    First off, WELCOME to the GREATEST FORUM on the internet!!! You couldn't have picked a better place to be.

    There really is a pretty wide selection of ankle holsters out there on the market. And, yes it will depend widely on the style of pants or jeans you wear. Those tighter fashion legs will be a no go, where as boot, relaxed and more material will provide the covered concealment and access to retrieve.

    Then there is the material choice to give some thought to as leg sweating can be an issue. I have different styles, all of which are no long often used as over time they all never became comfortable enough to wear. I did better with a boot tuck clip on a semi auto than I ever did with carrying a revolver on the ankle.

    I would look for something on the less expensive end of the price range and make sure that it turns out to be a carry option for you before spending on a higher end holster.

    Again, Welcome to the forum.
