    Cool LCP CC options

    With 80 degree temps hanging around it's time to think about switching to my LCP for CC. I've got a great, little IWB holster for it but sometimes, during the course of the summer, I'm forced to wear a pair of slacks with the shirt tucked in. What about an ankle holster for these occasions? Any opinions & recommendations out there?

    Smartcarry, disappears completely and works with what you describe, sweats, shorts, etc. I use the same one for my XDM compact with a Kahr, Walther P22, Taurus TCP and S&W 642.

    Fobus makes a nice one for your gun that you can see at:

    I like to use my ankle holster when I am on longer trips in the car, since it is easy to reach when seated. I even use it with shorts, just popping it off when I have to stop for gas/breaks and slip the gun into my pocket. If you are right handed, you will wear the ankle holster on your left ankle. On trips, I switch it over to my right ankle to get easy access with my right hand.

    When I used to have my LCP I tried pocket carry a few times but what was absent was a pocket holster. I'd get a pocket holster and go that route first as an ankle holster requires a lot more positioning for a good draw.

    LCP in pocket holster, in front slacks pocket. Just keep your keys and change in the other pocket, and you'll forget it's even there.

    Pocket-carry is the only reason why I bother with .380 and the LCP, but it is a near perfect pocket-carry solution.

    Get a Galco pocket holster and will be ideal for your needs. I've got one for the times I need to carry my LCP. JMO

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    When I carried an LCP, it was in a Desantis Nemesis; strong side pocket.

    I see the LCP as being for pocket carry only. Of course you can carry it by other means, but the pistol was designed to be so small that it could easily be slipped into a pocket and not be noticed.

    If you're going to go IWB or OWB, you may as well be carrying a larger more potent pistol. As long as you have a good pocket holster you'll be ok.

    I personally like rkbaholsters.com

    Ankle holsters present way more problems/difficulties than pocket holsters do.

    I agree, if it's on the waist, might as well be a 9mm or larger, get a pps, or I have a p99c, and believe it or not, it's lighter than the pps

    +1 on desantis nemesis. Superfly prints the gun less but is much bulkier. IMO don't even try Blackhawk or Uncle Mikes. I've read great things about Mika's but it looks to be on the bulky side as well. I like nemesis the best because it has a lot of relief under the trigger guard so even in baggy shorts I can nudge it with my middle finger after I've gripped the pistol to be sure it doesn't want to come out with the gun.

    /edit didn't mention any leather because I'm a little skeptical of the suede and 'horn' designs grabbing bigger pockets. And the synthetics are super slick on the inside.

    I have a wallet holster from MTR custom leather and really like it. It fits the gun and back pocket perfectly.
