Quick, Concealable, Secure, and Comfortable Ruger LCR Holsters.
What should your Concealed Carry Holster Do?
As Jeff Cooper says “Remember the first rule of gunfighting… have a gun.” With the right Ruger LCR holster you can have your LCR when you need it.
Most Ruger LCR holsters have painful sharp edges that make concealed carry uncomfortable.
Tom Segura said, “You should make travel as comfortable as possible,” and we believe concealed carry should always be the same.
Unlike most holster manufacturers who take the shape of the gun and add a place to mount a clip we modified our Ruger LCR holster and got rid of those painful spots.
We also have adjustable ride height so you can adjust the holster to your body and clothing.
This creates a comfortable Ruger LCR holster you can carry all day long with con
A concealed carry gun doesn’t do you much good if others can easily see that you’re carrying a gun.
Keep your LCR close to the body away from prying eyes.
The holsters have a wing that uses the belt or waistband to press the grip of the gun close to the body. This Ruger LCR holster will make the gun disappear on your body.
With the Icon 2.0, you can stop worrying about your holster coming off your belt when you draw your gun.
It’s secure it works with and without a belt.
Unlike other holsters, our holsters use Discreet Carry Concepts clips. These are designed to work with and without a belt.
But we go above and beyond making sure the clip presses evenly against the holster so your holster will stay in place when you draw the gun. They’re very thin and secure. Our holsters have adjustable retention. This allows you to set the retention to your needs.
It’s a comfortable and Secure Ruger LCR holster that’ll serve you well.
Holster For The Ruger LCR
There are a couple of things you want to look for when shopping for a holster for your Ruger LCR. First, you can determine how you plan to carry the gun. Are you looking for a Ruger LCR holster that will conceal well?
Or are you looking for a holster for the Ruger LCR that is meant to be more overt?
Is this something that you’re going to carry around a farm or homestead? Or is this something you’re going to carry concealed on urban streets?
The features in these holsters can be vastly different.
When shopping for a Ruger LCR holster for concealment, you’ll most likely be looking for an inside the waistband or Ruger LCR IWB holster.
If you do plan to carry outside the waistband, you’ll be looking for a Ruger LCR OWB holster that fits very close to the body.
You want something that can be concealed easily under a T-shirt or other thin cover garment.
In this section, we’ll cover mostly the Ruger LCR IWB holster variants.
The clip choice for a Ruger LCR IWB holster is going to make or break the holster.
The majority of holster clips are designed around semiautomatics. So they don’t work well when applied to a revolver holster.
That’s unless you think outside of the box.
Many companies mount foami-style clips over the cylinder of a revolver. This has a couple of issues. For one, it makes the profile of a revolver much wider.
Most people are carrying a revolver because they want a small reliable gun.
What good is a small reliable gun if your holster is absolutely massive due to the placement of the clip?
Another issue is the foami relies on getting consistent contact with a flat area of the gun.
When you mount it to the cylinder itself, there’s no flat area for the foamy clip to press against. This means the clip will not be secure against the holster. This means when drawing your gun, you can potentially draw the holster out with the firearm.
The consequences of this could be deadly in a fight for your life.
Discreet Carry Concepts Monoblock
On our Ruger LCR IWB holster, we mount the clip right beside the cylinder and next to the trigger guard.
This keeps the system low profile. We’ve also designed an additional attachment piece that goes below the clip so that the Discreet Carry Concepts Monoblock perfectly engages with this flat piece making the holster extremely secure.
It’s so secure that you don’t even need a belt to carry your Ruger LCR holster.
The Discreet Carry Concepts Monoblock is a very thin spring metal clip.
This makes the holster less bulky making it easier to conceal.
The Discreet Carry Concepts Monoblock clip is also a little over one inch wide. This makes the system very stable when carrying with a belt and definitely stable enough when carrying without a belt.
One downside of this clip is that it’s a top mount-style clip.
This will limit the grip options you can use with your Ruger LCR. It will fit most nonlaser grip options(compatibility listed on the product page).
Unforunately there is no way it will work with a Ruger LCR that has been modified to accept a laser.
Adjustable Ride Height
We also build an adjustable ride height. This means you can move the clip up and down to change how high you want the grip to ride in your waistband.
The higher you mount the grip, the easier and quicker it will be to draw the gun.
The lower that you mount the clip, the more concealable it will be. Comfort will vary for each person and their body type. That said, with an adjustable clip, you can adjust the ride height to fit your comfort and draw speed needs.
Comfort is affected by the adjustable ride height. You body has a natural area where the holster will be comfortable. But the positon of your waistband can change depending on the cut of the pants you’re wearing. Everyone is built a little differently so adjustable ride height allows you to adjust the holster to your body and clothing.
While adjustable ride height is important, one of the most important factors with a revolver holster is how well it’s rounded.
A common theme I see in revolver holsters is other manufacturers do not round the area in front of the cylinders.
By not rounding this area, they create a sharp, hard edge that will dig into your body causing discomfort.
We round every possible surface on this holster to make the holster smooth and comfortable when you’re wearing it.
An advantage Ruger LCR IWB holsters have over other setups is weight distribution.
The majority of the Ruger LCR’s weight is focused in the cylinder.
This puts the majority of the weight below the beltline. This makes you set up much more comfortable as the weight of the gun is balanced versus a semi auto where all the weight of the gun sits above the beltline.
When the weight of a semi-auto sits above the belt line, it forces the muzzle of the gun to want to poke into your groin or butt.
A revolver does not have this issue due to weight distribution.
OWB Holster For Ruger LCR
For an OWB holster, whether you’re carrying concealed or openly, you want the gun and holster to fit tightly to your body. This will keep the holster from hanging up on other items as you walk by.
It will also keep it from printing when wearing it under a cover garment.
You want to make sure the attachment system for your belt holds the gun close to the body. Another feature to look for in an OWB holster, especially a concealment OWB holster, is adjustable cant.
You want the cant of the revolver holster to match your body naturally.
This will help your draw stroke as well as concealment. It’s more important for draw stroke than it is for concealment considering the size of the Ruger LCR.
Ruger LCR Pocket Holster
The Ruger LCR is a big gun for pocket carry. You’ll want to make sure that if you’re using the Ruger LCR in a pocket holster, you have very large pockets in your pants. You’ll also want to make sure that you have a pocket holster large enough to keep the gun concealed.
This may sound counterintuitive, but a bigger bulkier pocket holster will help disguise the shape of the revolver, thus concealing your Ruger LCR in plain sight.
Holster For The Ruger LCR 357
The good thing about the Ruger LCR series is that all the Ruger LCR snub nose guns fit in the same holsters as long as the holster maker has defeatured the cylinder.
We make sure to defeature the cylinder on our molds so your Ruger LCR 357 will fit in the same holster as your Ruger LCR 22 training gun.
Our icon is a great Ruger 357 LCR Holster.
Holster For The Ruger LCR 38
Any Ruger LCR holster will work for your Ruger LCR 38 as long as the cylinder has been de-featured.
We’ve defeatured the cylinder on all our Ruger LCR molds making it work with all the different calibers of the
Best Holster For The Ruger LCR 327
In our humble opinion, the best holster for the Ruger LCR 327 is Harry’s Holster’s Icon. The Harry’s Holsters Icon is very stable and will fit your Ruger LCR 328 like a glove.
It has adjustable retention and adjustable ride height. You can really dial in to fit your carry preferences.
Ruger LCR 9mm Holster
As we’ve stated above, any Ruger LCR holster with the cylinder defeatured will fit your Ruger LCR 9mm. So if you own multiple calibers of Ruger LCRs, you can carry them in the same holster.
Ruger LCR 22 Holster
The great thing about the Ruger LCR 22 is it works really well as a trainer for your full-size revolvers. With the right ammo selection it can also be a good option for self defense.
It has a heavier trigger pull, which makes shooting more difficult in a good way. It’s easier to shoot some of the larger revolvers as far as the trigger pull goes.
It also has little to no recoil, so you can really focus on your trigger pull and site control without worrying about recoil.
The great news is you can use our Harry’s Holster’s Icon as your Ruger LCR 22 holster, and also use it in your Ruger LCR 357 9 mm, 327, or 38.
