When it comes to concealed carry with my Lc9s I am an IWB fan. I always carry an extra magazine too. I have tried several IWB holsters, but both leather and kydex. That also goes for IWB magazine holders. None of them satisfied me to the extent that they were keepers.

A couple weeks ago while checking out Lc9 accessories on eBay I came across a holster and magazine holder that looked worth a try. Since they were returnable I ordered them. The leather holster cost $25 and the molded plastic magazine carrier has adjustable retention and cost $13.

The magazine holder belt clip can be set for L or R side carry. I carry it right side near my holster. It's a habit I got into in the Corps when I carried a M1911.

The holster is good quality leather that is sewn to fit the Lc9. Holstering is easy since it does not collapse when empty.

The belt clip provides a placement guide for the trigger finger. Place the finger next to the clip and when you draw your trigger finger is perfectly positioned on the gun when drawn.

I have posted a few photos photos to illustrate what I wrote.

I don't want to make this an ad so if you want info on the eBay sources just PM me.

Excellent post, Allen; very well organized and illustrated. However, it is obvious that you are not "comfortably rotund". Most of that ain't going to work for me.

It ain't because I'm a decade older than you, either. I was "CR" a decade ago too.

Is the holster reversible? All the pics look to be right handed.:) Except the one of you.

The holster is right handed and not reversible. If you put it on the left side it is an IWB cross draw.

I like the holster so much that I bought a left handed one. When put on the right side it becomes an OWB holster.

" comfortably rotund" now that's a very nice way of putting it VT. LOL I also like to eat so I am "CR" also.
The holster looks good. That is a great price for a formed leather holster.

I would buy the l/h but wear it r/h OWB. If I carry the LC9s it will be as a back up so it would go OWB r/h. I am not giving up carrying my LCR as my main go to for any semi auto.

I agree being shaped leather it makes it much easier for re-holstering IWB. Formed leather holsters are also better for OWB.

My Talon canted holster for my LCR is thick formed leather and is always easy to re-holster yet hold the gun firmly.

New Lc9 holster & mag holder

Excellent post, Allen; very well organized and illustrated. However, it is obvious that you are not "comfortably rotund". Most of that ain't going to work for me.

I hear you. In 1989 when I retired from the Corps I stood at 5'10" and weighed 170 lbs. with a 34 inch waist. I was 47 years old. At the start of 2002 my weight was up to 205 lbs. with 36 inch waist. I never saw it when I looked in a mirror.

One day I was looking at some photos that friend took at a barbecue at my house. I was shocked. I decided to lose the weight. My goal was my Discharge weight. It took three years to get to that weight goal by gradual reduction on caloric intake coupled with exercise.

Today I weigh in at 164 lbs with a 33" waist, which makes it hard to buy pants because most manufactures make 32 and 34. But the good news is that my IWB holstered LC9s makes the size 34 just fine.

So that is another reason I carry IWB. It makes my size 34 pants fit.
