pocket holster for Ruger LCP, etc

#1 Post by TX308 » Wed Dec 21, 2011 5:54 pm

Something that will allow the gun to be carried in the pocket with a round in the chamber. Any ideas?

Love this little gun, it's wicked accurate, even with the stock sights, but right now I don't feel comfy carrying it except with an empty chamber.

Front or back pocket? We have a few holster makers here on the LGC forums. Irishman is one, he works in leather and his website is http://www.woodenleather.com/ I know from experience that he will work with you on the design, but it seems most of his off-the-shelf stuff is in stiff leather.

Here are a couple of others that are pretty popular with some folks I know:

This is what I carry my LCP in w/ round in the chamber, i like it so much I wont even bother looking for another, plus i hate IWB. I am like 5'10" and I can carry it in my front pocket with no printing.

I have one of Irishman's wallets for it, and the gun sits in a pocket of stiff leather with the trigger totally covered. It's clear he thought about this quite a bit, and also the other issue relating to these wallets, which is the ATF's view one what constitutes 'any other weapon'. Something that disguises a gun while allowing you to shoot it needs a tax stamp. Irishman's rig covers this by requiring you to remove the gun before you can get to the trigger. And the trigger itself is so protected, it's a safe carry, mine always has one in the chamber in daily carry for 4 months. I've actually dropped the wallet + gun twice in front of other people, and they had no clue what I had dropped, no one is going to spot this carry, it totally looks like a nice wallet. The flap also makes spotting this in your back pocket impossible.
When only cops have guns, it's called a police state.
