    Looking for recommendations for a pocket holster, IWB and OWB holster for my new LCR 9mm.

    Leather or kydex preferred for the IWB and OWB.

    I don't pocket mine unless it is in a coat pocket with sufficient "stuff" in the other to counterbalance out the revolver's weight. The ony gun I pocket carry is a Pico .380, and that's in my back pocket.

    I's also not an IWB fan. I never could get used to it, so that leaves me OWB. My holster of choice for the LCR (and any snubbie, really) is the Minimal Revolver Holster Kit that Tandy used to sell. I dabble in leather work, so $20 and 2 hours of my time to tool, wet mold, and dye to come up with a quality holster was well worth it.

    I like the minimal holster because it is pancake style, so I can either wear it on my back hip around 4:30/5 o'clock or scooch it up as more of an OWB appendix position of carry. The holster has no straps or snaps to get in the way and is held tight to my body with a good snug belt. Also, the barrel of the gun just barely peeks out the bottom, so it stays plenty protected. However it is nice that I can slip my SP101s in there in a pinch, even the one with the 4" barrel.

    For me, the LCR with the minimal pancake holster makes for the best compromise of concealed carry. I'm going to a small office gathering downtown this evening. Most folks there are not keen on guns, but I'm not strolling through a questionable area armed with nothing but my smile. The LCR at 2 o clock with a warm sweater thrown over it...no one will know its there.

    For years I have carried my .357 LCR in the right front pocket of my Wrangler jeans. I replaced the factory Hogues (sort of "sticky" on the draw) with Eagle CIA wood grips. Tremendous improvement getting it smoothly in and out of my pocket. Just recently, I ordered a Mika (https://mikaspocketholsters.com) pocket holster just to reduce the wear of my jeans pocket liner. It hasn't arrived yet but from what I've read, its a very well made, long lasting holster.
    If I am clothed with a jacket, I'll use a Galco Shoulder holster or OWB holster for my Ruger Service Six, but I still carry the LCR in my pocket. It's very comfortable for me.

    When I had my LCR, I used a Galco Triton kydex IWB that I liked a lot. Now my brother-in-law has both the LCR and the holster, and he wears both every day.

    The Mika holster is very good.

    I bought a RangeMaxx hip holster at Bass Pro Shop for my LCR 357. I just took out the clip and the cloth strip used to snap the gun in and use it as a pocket holster. Works well if I am standing, had to tell what it is in my front pocket, usually carry it wearing jeans. Cheap, under $18.

    Occasionally I use a remora holster for my LCR, tucked crossdraw while driving or appendix for quick errands. Being seated and wearing a heavy belt helps holster retention with a remora and I wouldn't really recommend it for a larger gun. I do find it pretty handy for part time carry with the LCR. Otherwise I carry in an outer coat pocket balanced out with gloves, mittens, scarf, etc. in the opposite side. The colder the weather gets the more likely I am to use it that gun in general.
