    Need carry option suggestions for Ruger LCP

    I bought an LCP yesterday, wanting as small and dependable and viable a gun as possible for my daily wear--khakis and tucked-in shirts. Initially, I was planning to pocket carry, and may yet do so. However, I'm running out of pockets! I carry an iPhone in one front pocket and my keys and whatever in the other. I could put the iPhone on my belt. I'm not sure I want to carry in a back pocket but am open to it.

    What about IWB? With the small size of the LCP, I wonder if I can conceal carry IWB and with the natural puffing out of the tucked in shirt covering the back of the gun/holster.

    At any rate, I'm looking for some good options and particular holster suggestions. And if it matters, I'm going to put a Hogue grip on the LCP.

    Thanks.

    Wife and I both use holsters made by FoxX Holsters. We have the Little FoxX for micro pistols. Holster is an IWB hybrid holster with single adjustable belt clip. I can wear mine anywhere from 1-4 o'clock positions.

    You didn't ask but I carry an extra magazine in a holder made by kytexgear.com. I recommend gear from both these companies.

    The LCP was born and bred to be carried in your pocket.

    I think you saw on my other post where I said I carry mine in a Desantis pocket holster and it is in my back pocket so that if someone wants me to give them my wallet, I will give them something alright. But I do carry others besides that one (SR1911 and XDx45) and pepper spray and a few knives.

    At first I thought pocket carry was the way to go too. Tried it but hated it!

    I carry a money clip in my front pocket, so the wallet holster works great for me.

    I only carry my LCP when I need deep conceal.

    I pocket carry with a Blackhawk size 1. You may want to check out pj holster iwb tuckable too. I have the regular iwb with a j hook and it is all day comfortable and he gives a lifetime warranty on his products.

    I have a High Noon Hidden Ally coming soon. Don't know much about it, but based on other comments about this holster, it should be nice.

    I love the LCP in my pocket, but there are times when my pockets are full and IWB would be nice.

    A Sticky Holster or Remora would probably be good in those situations.

    I've been using an Aholster for the past few months. It is a great kydex, high riding IWB holster.

    My summer carry is a LCP, mostly in a Uncle Mikes pocket holster. For times jeans won't work I use a Sneeky Peet. I know many others are going to yell "geek" or " that just screams gun" but trust me no one pays ant attention to it. IMHO it is well worth a look.

    I don't pocket carry. If you're wearing a tucked-in shirt, maybe a SmartCarry? Remora works for me, but I only wear T-shirts (I'm old and can get away with constant casual... ). The LCP is so small, I also have good luck with a belly band, but, again, that's only feasible with a non-tucked in shirt, IMO. You should be able to easily hide it almost anywhere: Yeah, that's one small gun!!!

    If you are just a little overweight (and I am not saying you are as I don't know you) IWB with the LCP probably will not be the optimum carry position. If you are slender it may work ok for you. I found the LCP small enough to carry OWB and conceal under a shirt very easy. Pocket carry is also very easy in the proper holder.

    I carry mine in a Desantis pocket holster. I have a crimson trace lazer on my LCP. Just wondering how some of these holsters would work with the crimson trace?
