By rough industry estimates there are a little more than 1.6 million Ruger LCP`s in circulation.
I have carried one everyday since they were originally introduced. It is mainly a backup for my primary CCW handgun but regardless of what else I have in my pockets, the LCP is with me. If you are like me you have noticed a distinct lack of suitable holsters for a gun that is so prolific. I have been thru several soft side pocket sleeves. My experience is that once they get “worn-in” for daily carry, sweat, etc, they mold themselves to the gun. Some makers have used a hook of sorts to attempt to separate the gun from holster as it is drawn from the pocket.
I decided to go a different way. After NUMEROUS prototypes, I came up with a design which I believe is the best LCP holster available. It is built on a rigid Kydex frame which is laminated with an EVA foam exterior. The foam allows the holster to ”STICK” to the inside of the pocket and stay in an upright position when the gun is drawn. The holster has ZERO retention in the normal sense as it relates to Kydex. Unless you are doing handstands the gun will not come out of the holster by accident. Most important though is the fact that the holster stays in position and in the pocket when the gun is drawn. Additionally, this holster can be made in nearly 30 different color combinations. If your wife, daughter, girlfriend, etc, are carrying the Ruger LCP as a concealed carry piece, the color variations may be of interest.
The EVA holster by itself works for either a right or left hand pocket carry. As an option, I can provide a “pocket-bend” in the base of the holster to contour it more to the leg.
I also make an IWB style holster for the LCP. Although not originally designed as an actual IWB holster, this holster was done for my left handed wife. She wanted something of minimal bulk and with an outside clip to put either on a belt or in a pocket. You can see this holster and the EVA sleeve on the Holster product pages.
The LCP Holster fits all generations of Ruger LCP`s including the new LCP II.
NOTE! This holster is actually intended to be used as the product description indicates; a pocket pistol holster. As such, any other larger size/framed handguns that will likely NOT fit in your pocket MAY not work with this holster. I have made them for guns as large as Glock 43
s and 26s but these were intended to be used as “purse carry pistols”. This holster design with the EVA foam exterior works ideally as a purse carry option in that it is retained in the purse as it would be in a pocket and also serves as a “place-holder” when returning the weapon to the purse. Although they may work for an IWB holster ,they are not intended for that purpose unless you order the model WITH the FOMI style belt clip.
