Ruger LC9


February 23, 2013, 01:03 PM
I have a Ruger LC-9 but I can't find a decent ccw holster for the thing at any gunshop. I'm tired of spending cash on massively overpriced guns, and I'm not replacing it. I'm so frustrated that I'm almost ready to stop carrying altogether. :banghead:

Does anyone know of or have experience with a good carry holster for an LC 9? I want one in waistband and a separate one out of waist band.

I don't have a LC9 so I can't give any opinion on a specific holster, but this may be a good starting point for your search.

Got a PJ Holster I use with the LC9 IWB. Great kydex holster IMO.

I've tried a few different IWB holsters: (Crossbreed, Versacarry, Tagua and others)
but have come back around to the first one I bought, an Uncle Mikes sueded cloth like this one:
It's nothing fancy but by far the most comfortable I've used with my LC9 when carried at the 4:30-5:00 position. It's the only holster I've tried that I actually forget sometimes I have on.

Chemist308, may I suggest that you consider an IWB holster positioned in the small of the back. I have a LC9 (and other CPL handguns) and found a leather holster to be very comfortable. This is a preference thing because some people do not like this method of carry. The Holster Store, Pro Carry right hand black clip on is the one I enjoy using. It comes in left hand and in different colors (brown). Hard to beat the price, it cost me about $30 and is a very high quality product. I have different holsters for different purposes. But for CPL carry the IWB carry as described above works for me and the LC9.

SOF-TUCK #106 by Desantis IWB left hand is what I use. Comfortable and less than 30 bucks.

My LC9 should be in by the end of the month. I plan on trying both of these.

I have an LC9 with the Laserlyte mounted on the side. I have a few holsters hanging around here, but had a problem with the laser turning on when my pistol was inserted in any of my holsters.

I have a DeSantis Pocket Tuk intended for my Bulgy Makarov that actually fit my LC9 better. I ended up wet moulding it to my pistol. I taped a piece of a popcicle stick over the Laserlyte while the pistol was inserted inside the wet holster, in order to give more clearance over the on/off switch.

This is what I ended up with. It works perfectly, and the laser doesn't come on when its in the holster. I can shake the holster and pistol upside down and it doesn't come out!

I paid $23 for the holster shipped to my door, off eBay.

Hope this helps!
