In an earlier post I chronicled my struggles finding an IWB holster for the Ruger LCP with the E-Series laser. After a dozen or so emails I managed to find a custom kydex holster maker (Squid Tactical) who built a custom one-off IWB holster for my LCP with the E-Series laser. Squid Tactical makes a holster called the The Minimalist. This is the model I chose for my LCP.
NOTE: I didn’t receive this holster in exchange for a favorable review or at a discounted price. I paid the retail price for this holster and use it on an almost daily basis.
More details about this holster
I realize that this holster is stuck inside my waist band and nobody can see it. But, I’ve been texting my friends and sharing these photos. Every single person has commented on just how nice they think it looks. And I have to agree. If you look at the photo above, note how every corner is carefully rounded to prevent any sharp edges.
The key – a secure weapon
The whole point of a holster is to hold your weapon safely and securely. Two adjustable tension screws allow you to easily adjust this holster to hold the gun securely. I turned the holster upside down with a full magazine and shook the holster hard to try an dislodge it. It held securely. I was also impressed with the way the holster was formed around the ridges that protect the laser on/off switch from being depressed.
You can see the ridges around the laser on/off I mentioned on the photo below:
The holster is easy to clip on an off your belt. The clip also hooks underneath a 1.5″ belt for additional security. I don’t particularly like pocket holsters. The are tougher to draw from and I lose a pocket as well. So this IWB holster solves the problem for me.
The Minimalist IWB holster for the Ruger LCP with the E-series laser is a great little holster. Squid Tactical did an excellent job building this custom holster for my gun. The product is high quality and I highly recommend them if you need custom kydex. Plus, you’ll be supporting an American small business which is an added plus. You can find Squid Tactical on Facebook, too.
