    Default Carry Methods for Ruger LCR

    I know there are a lot of threads on here about holsters and carry methods, but I am looking for info specifically related to the LCR. I just bought one and I would love to get an IWB holster, but I don't think my husband is going to let me spend another $80 any time soon. I also don't want to have to dress like a man. How do you carry your LCR and what is your favorite IWB holster if you use one? Right now I am limited to purse carry and I really am not a fan of off-the-body carry but I figure it is better than nothing. I would love to find a IWB holster that sits just inside the hip bone that isn't too expensive. I am 5'5" and about 130-135 pounds.

    I just got an LCR and I use a crossbreed IWB. I dampened the back of the leather and put it on to let it dry and form to me and it took a lot less wearing time to get it comfortable. I read on another post were they have a returned holster section that is less expensive but I didn't see that. You might look and see if you can find it. I think for me wearing it lower in the waist and handle tilted back works best for concealing and comfort. The top of the holster is barely below my pants waist.
    Due to the price increase on ammo do not expect a warning shot.

    I bought a very cheap little holster at a gun show and it works perfect worn on the inside of my pants (clipped on waistband AND belt) in the small of my back. Photo:

    I posted a pic of my cheap little holster 10 hours ago, but it hasn't been approved by the moderator yet. Anyway, it's a minimalistic, plastic "sandwich" that my LCR fits in, and I wear it tucked IWB at the small of my back, or sometimes in the front, depending on what I'm wearing and what I'm doing. It cost $25 at a gun show. If you google images for "small holster" it comes up.

    I am currently using an Uncle Mike's Sidekick size 36 IWB holster. I bought it used (barely used) for $10. The LCR fits loose in the holster when not in the pants, but is nice & tight when IWB while still allowing for a smooth draw. The trigger guard fits and is fully covered in the holster. The one complaint I have is that if you are sitting and get up, the holster rides up a bit. So if I am wearing it in the truck and then I get out of the truck, I have to tuck it back down just a bit. I wear mine at the 4 o'clock position, I don't know if I would have the same riding up problem if worn at a different position. Anyway, it is a pretty inexpensive way to go until I can afford something better. If you have not seen this video, it has some offerings for women.

    I finally ordered an IWB holster from Talon Holsters. I know everyone seems to love the Crossbreed, but I want to be able to carry in the appendix position. A good friend of mine told me you can break your back if you are carrying behind the hip and fall backwards onto concrete. The holster I am getting from Talon will allow me to carry in either position. Another plus is they are in stock so there is no 6-8 week wait time. I'll post an update after I have used it a bit.

    I just got my Talon IWB holster for my LCR. I have tried it with a couple of different pairs of pants and I think it is going to work well. The LCR is definitely not an easy gun to hide, but with a sweatshirt on I don't think anyone will notice. I am curious to see how it will work out with some other tops. I tried it in the appendix position and behind the hip, and I can see why people like carrying behind the hip. It is more comfortable and concealable. I guess my carry method will just depend on what I am wearing and what I am doing. I will likely still use purse carry some, but we'll see. My only complaint about the holster so far is that it squeaks some when I move. Hopefully it just needs to break in. I'm going to try to wear it around the house a bunch and see if it goes away.

    FLASHBANG! I swear by this! It sounds impractical at first...but watch the videos...and with just 15 minutes practice it was in my muscle memory and I was firing accurate shots off in 1-2 seconds. :)
