HN Holster Review: Ruger LCR

As a longtime fan and owner of Crimson Trace and High Noon Holster products. I have to say that they compliment each other very nicely. You have a sturdy, well proven laser grip that offers the laser advantage for most any type of shooting, plus a safe and functiional mode of carry for your favorite CT equipped handgun. High Noon now offers holsters expressly made for those with Laser Grips from Crimson Trace. I reviewed the HN Topless model holster for my first LCR some while ago. That holster would also allow the use of CT grips. My plan for this time is that I show other holster options that are now available for the HN, CT, and of course..Ruger LCR fan. Firstly, There is the wonderful Pocket Grabber pocket holster in cowhide. Strong stitching that's evident in most HN products, with the rough sided synthetic "grabber" material on each side. The gun fits very well, and conceals as well as any .38 snub pocket holster that i've owned in the past. High Noon's logo embossed on the top side.. With no other markings on the other. I'm normally not a .38 Snubby pocket carry guy, but this holster works well with a vest or coat with deeper pockets than my boot cut Wranglers. My Micro's HN Pocket Grabber is what I use when such carry is called for. Equally as handsome and functional as the LCR Pocket Grabber- but fits the smaller and flatter MDE .380 ACP chambered KEVIN pistol. For someone looking for a LCR pocket holster that's above the level of a Uncle Mike's, or other economy holster. The Pocket Grabber is hard to beat at any price. Now for the second holster in this review which is called the Need For Speed, or "NFS" for short. While it isn't my first NFS, it is my first one for a revolver. Constructed out of cowhide with a black finish. Part of it being in the rough out, while the trim is in smooth cowhide. Featuring hand molding and an adjustable tension screw. The usual High Noon attention to detail is shown in the strong stitching and the way it contours to your body once on a belt. A slight FBI rake puts the LCR right where it needs to be, at least for me. The NFS is both fast on the draw and yet secure. My gun fits snugly in the holster- and has yet to become loose or shift around in the last week or so that I've been testing the NFS. This specimen does show some wear on the front from where my belt made contact. Really no big deal- as nobody can see such when worn. Although hard to photograph. There is a sewn in rubber or hard plastic sight channel inside the NFS. My Novak Mega-Dot equipped LCR had no problems with this. Those of you with the XS LCR sights probably won't either. I didn't have any Crimson Trace laser grips for this gun, but it's nice to know that both holsters tested could accept an LCR equipped with such. Photobucket I'm not sure if the LCR in .357 Magnum would fit these holsters. My limited exposure to the .357 version shows it to be marginally bigger in all areas-except maybe the cylinder diameter and grip. The good people at HIGH NOON could probbaly tell you more.. and address any holster issue should you want a .357 LCR Need For Speed, or a Pocket Grabber. The more I use the NFS, the more I like it. This could very well be the most comfortable revolver holster that I've ever worn! You can't go wrong with choosing any of these holsters for your personal defense needs.
