I have the new LCPII. It fits almost perfectly my Talon Wallet holster.

Since it's a hair bigger the back that's cut to follow the rear of the slides contour sticks up probably less than a 1/4".

I really liked this holster with my early model LCP but now it worries me with the LCPII.

I've had concerns carrying the LCPII with a chambered round in any holster. It's fully cocked and the only safety is the trigger blade safety. As light as that trigger is. With age what if the sear wears down some and lets the hammer fall.
I was talking about it on another forum when someone there sent me a link from another Ruger forum. George who makes the Uncle George holsters also has serious concerns. He wrote to Ruger and Mike Fifer. He will not be making a wallet holster for the new LCPII. I attached the link if you or anybody else are interested.

Wow.... cocked and unlocked? I don't think so. I'll try the LCP Custom.

Welcome to the Ruger forum.

I wanted a Custom LCP and waited for several months on a dealers list . He had Ruger days and the Ruger rep assure us the dealer would get all he needed. I see how that went. Now we know why they were hard to come by the LCPII was in the works. I'd much rather have the Custom then this brand new LCPII. I'm sure if you find a Custom you'll be paying top dollar and I won't do that. I can always carry my early production LCP.

Better hurry, as a result of coming out with the LCP II, they have discontinued the LCP Custom. Thank goodness I got mine, absolutely love it, over previous LCP Gen I and Gen II's I've owned.

I got the LCP Custom just before the LCP II was announced. Compared the trigger with the LCP II My opinion they are the same. What it the difference between the Gen 1 and Gen 2 LCPs?

Won't fit in a Galco tuck-n-go

I bought the galco tuck-n-go. Nice holster but the II wouldn't fit. I think mainly because of the new shape of the trigger guard. The II is also slightly wider. I ended up giving the holster to my brother who owns an original LCP. The fit was snug. I'm guessing the holster will break in with a little time.

I have an IWB Walther PPK holster and decided to try it with the LCP II. It was a perfect fit! Always happy to save a few bucks...

That reminds me to dig out a shoulder rig for a 'former' pistol...see if it fits the LC9s/Pro

I solved the LCPII problem.I still have it but I went out and bought a brand new Sig P238 last week. I ordered another Talon wallet holster for this Sig so I'm good to go. Sure they cost considerably more but there is no comparison.

I've never been a fan of the Ruger semi autos other than the SR1911's. I do like those. After getting a LCP 1st generation about 7 or 8 yrs ago with a 35lb trigger that Ruger wouldn't do anything about then getting this accident waiting to happen LCPII I believe it's safe to say I'm finished with all the Ruger semi autos.
I suggest anyone considering a LCPII make sure you understand that it is a pretty unsafe gun to carry with a round chambered. I have slipped it in my wallet holster and pocket holster but W/O a chambered round. I really don't see the point in carrying when you have an empty chamber but that's the only way I will carry it.

I have put a couple hundred rounds through the LCP II and it's been flawless and accurate enough since getting it back from Ruger for the trigger not resetting. I just wish I could have gotten the Custom and wouldn't have bought the LCPII.

I'll hang on to it for awhile. I have a feeling Ruger will have a recall on them once they get a couple major lawsuits against them. I'm having a hard time believing Ruger even released the II's. I have to agree with Uncle George the holster maker on this one it's not safe to carry in any holster w/a chambered round.

I should have mentioned about the holsters. The LCPII is a hair bigger then the standard and Custom LCP's. What I did with my Talon LCP wallet holster and a Galco pocket holster. The LCPII would fit but it was a little tight. I prefer freezer paper but wax paper will do the same thing. Depending how tight it is put a wrap or two of the wax paper or Freezer paper shinny side out away from the gun then shove it in the tight holster as far as you can get it. Let it sit overnight or a day then check it. You might have to leave it in for a couple days but eventually it will fix your gun perfectly.

As a matter of fact I just got that Talon Sig holster mid last week. It was a hair tight and overnight I shoved the gun in with Freezer paper.

Another trick I have if the holster seems to be rougher then you are comfortable with on the inside I apply a couple coats of Johnson Paste wax to the inside of the holster. I let it dry. If you read the Johnson's can it's good for use on leather. I've done several of my holsters with the Johnson's wax and have had no holster wear to speak of.It also helps putting a coat or two on the gun once a month.

????? Redhawk, guy, I just don't get it. You continue to malign the LCP II as being dangerous and an accident and lawsuit waiting to happen, yet, rather than put it in a proper fitting holster designed for the the LCP II you try to cram it into an LCP holster and what, save, maybe $40.

IMHO, the LCP II is as safe to carry with a loaded chamber as any Glock. If Redhawk would stop trying to cram his LCP II wrapped in wax paper into the wrong holster and instead spend $20 on a BORAII pocket holster then he would have a pistol that is completely safe to carry with a chambered round. Now, I can see him having a problem trying to draw his LCP II from an incorrect tight holster and tripping the trigger trying to yank that thing out of there and thereby having a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Redhawk, if you are so concerned about safety: put your pistol in a proper holster, that is actually designed for the LCP II. Geesh!!!

There are enough differences in the shape of these two pistols that you really do need to buy a different holster if your old LCP holster is a molded holster. If it is a generic holster designed to fit a number of similar sized pocket pistols than no. But since you say your leather holster was made for the LCP, I'm guessing it is a molded holster.

For any striker-fired or single action pistol with a shootable, manageable, trigger pull weight, I seriously recommend that you get a dedicated molded holster made specifically for it and I would recommend a kydex holster with real good retention like the Vedder holsters for IWB or OWB carry or the BORAII if you are interested in pocket carry.
