I bought the one I use at a store that sold the same gun, and I was able to test it for proper fit. Not all stores can do this. Some will not take the trigger lock off of their guns for holster testing.

There are a lot of others that will mold the holster specifically for your gun.
Says they make a pocket holster for the LCR
This of course goes against today's conventional thinking, but the necessity to cover the trigger guard idea originated with folks that were more into pistols then revolvers.
Experienced revolver shooters don't carry with the hammer cocked (at least I hope not) but the truth is that if they did and the hammer fell on a mainline makers hand-ejector you wouldn't hear a loud BANG! unless the trigger was held rearward while the hammer went down. When the hammer is down and the trigger forward it takes about a 12-pound pull (more or less) to self-cock and fire the gun, which is highly unlikely to happen.
Leaving the trigger guard uncovered reduces the bulk of a pocket holster - which can be important to reduce the chance of printing, and allows the user to get their finger along side of the trigger while making the draw.
So this is a matter of "too each his/her own" when making a decision.
And yes, it is generally better to buy (or make) holsters to specifically fit the intended handgun. However you don't want a pocket holster to be so tight that they're is a chance that when making a draw the holster will come along with the gun.
Recluse makes a nice leather pocket holster for the LCR ~ link below:
I have a drawer full of generic nylon and leather pocket holsters, but the ones I actually use are made by Robert Mika. I have both the round and square cut for small revolvers and recently had him make one for a Glock 26. His holsters are inexpensive, last for years and most importantly, work great.
