We tried out several different Ruger LCP holsters and came up with this list of the 8 best Ruger LCP OWB holsters. Outside the waistband (OWB) holsters are better for a few reasons. To be specific, OWB holsters are better for their grip, re-holstering and are comfortable. They hold your gun securely to your hip.
The Ruger LCP is a great handgun and it’s an amazing carry gun.
Let’s begin with our favorite OWB holster and the one we recommend.
Advanced Performance Shooting Holsters “Protective Services Elite” with Magazine Pouch Combo (OWB, Black)
The Protective Services Elite holster was designed by military and law enforcement special operations veterans to suit your unique needs. They wanted a belt holster adjusted for cant that was comfortable, durable and would retain the gun no matter the conditions. They wanted a holster that rode close enough that concealment was easy, even in simple cover garments. They wanted a holster that was fast and suitable for everyday carry, training and competition. Like everyone else they have boxes full of holsters that are great for one or two things but lacked in other areas.
They designed their holsters with a forward rake/cant of approximately 15 degrees to aid in concealment. All Advanced Performance Shooting Holsters are individually engraved make, model, and date of manufacture, as well as the builder’s signature, to ensure authenticity. If you are looking for the best, then look no further. At Advanced Performance Shooting, they are extremely proud to provide their customers with a truly superior product, backed up by our lifetime warranty. The Elite Combo includes a custom crafted kydex holster and one ambidextrous magazine pouch. Just like our holsters, our unique magazine pouches provide secure retention without sacrificing speed or accessibility. Images may not depict the particular firearm that is listed.
