Holster for Button-up

Hey Gang,

I'm fairly new to the concealed carry world and am looking for a holster/technique for carrying while wearing a tucked in button-up shirt. I'm also open to ankle holsters. Looking to carry a Rugler LCR Double Action Revolver. Any thoughts?

There's lots of tuckable iwb ( inside the waistband ) holsters out there. I personally most of the time carry that way. Ankle holsters have there time and place too but I find it easier to carry iwb.

Checkout Crossbreed Holsters they offer something that may work for you.

There are a lot of similar IWB Tuckable Leather/Kydex hybrids on the market these days.

I have a Kholster, which I really love. Jimmy has got great service, and makes a great product at a great price. A lot of people will trim the leather to fit their preferences on these types of holsters as well.

I ordered a crossbreed back in February. I'm still waiting for it!! I hear theiss holsters are basically identical to crossbreed but cheaper and you can get one in 2 weeks. I've called crossbreed and I'm supposed to get it this week, although today's Friday so who knows. Anyway they did have great customer service however if I like the kydex/leather mix my next one will be theiss.

Ps, crossbreed told me they were running about 10-12 weeks behind. They said they never expected to get so backed up.

Deep concealment garments, belly bands...

For deep concealment there are a few well engineered choices & styles out there.
I suggest spending a bit more for quality clothing/gear rather than have problems with Mall Ninja knock-offs, .
See these websites/brands: .
5.11 has well made undershirts that can conceal a snub revolver or LCR model.
They also have dress/casual shirts with secret pockets, .
For jeans or pants, see; . They are a CA area firm started by a group of retired cops.

I've tucked with my Crossbreed a few times, and it works well, but I replaced those awful metal clips with a cross on them with more discrete kydex clips.

The tuckable holsters such as Crossbreed are good for smaller autos, but with larger guns, there is a very obvious bulge in your belt. At 1.28" wide, your LCR is the same width as a double-stack .45 ACP Glock. If you want to keep your shirt tucked in without looking ridiculously lopsided, try or The downside to those is that you need the velcro, quick-access shirts to go with them. (or an un-buttoned polo shirt)

I use an Old Faithful Holster for my CZ-75BD, and used a Crossbreed Supertuck for my S&W 642 when I had one back in the day. The Crossbreed worked very well for me, and with the shirt tucked the gun disappears nicely. You can also look for a good ankle holster, which, depending on your job duties, may be another good option.
