Sure. Obvious quality product. Just black paddle and holster. Sits right at belt level. Should work great under a jacket or sweatshirt. I don't have the LCP yet so can't comment on "fit". Gun shop still has no word from Ruger on delivery date but did hear that the SR9 recall slowed down the LCP manufacturing/assembly.

The Fobus belt holster works fine. Unlike their paddle holsters for larger guns you can actually get this one on & off without undoing your belt. The tension screw lets you control the amount of effort you need to get the gun drawn. It conceals OK under a loose shirt, but it isn't exactly glued to your side.

to me Winder even spells much easier menas to conceal. I carry my Kahr PM9 in front pocket 24/7 and in the winter Ijust feel even so much more at east with it in my front pocket for normally I am wearing a sweatshirt or outside long button shirt that even covers my pocket totally concealing it. Also in winter I wear alot the 5.11 hoslter T-shirt. This is a super rig for carrying any gun as long as it is worn under something like a sweatshirt or button type shirt.

I love winter for carrying. Just me I guess but I never felt the lcp was really an IWB or OWB type gun, normaly the holsters are bigger and bulkier than the little lcp itself..

I don't yet have the LCP-specific Fobus hip holster, but used Fobus' paddle holsters for both a Glock 23 and 27 for many years. In daily use, I have found them to be inexpensive, convenient, durable, and effective. As with all paddle holsters, the weapon stands off the hip slightly more than it would in a holster that threads onto a belt, so it can be slightly less discreet. My LCP is on order, and I expect to purchase a Fobus holster for it once it arrives.

That said, I found the Fobus shoulder holster to be a bit inconvenient; I find it takes two hands, or a real determined yank, to draw the pistol, because the holster secures it a bit too tightly. I still use the rig sometimes under winter coats that I don't care to leave completely open (as would be necessary to access a hip holster, when it's very cold outdoors. As an aside, several companies make jackets with zips on the sides (Blauer is one), that do permit access to a hip holster while the primary zipper closure in the front is closed during clod weather. I often wear one of those in cold weather, but they tend to look a bit "official", as these are typically jackets which have pull-down ID panels for plainclothes law enforcement use.

I also have a Fobus ankle holster, which works fine but is somewhat more bulky and also less comfortable than a nylon padded model that I believe came from DeSantis. I only have used the ankle holster with a Glock 27, and their model for a small pistol like the LCP may be more comfortable as well as smaller.

Just got my Fobus for the LCP. Neat item. I like the way it keeps the piece tucked in close to the side. I did have to adjust the tension screw, you'll have to play around with it so as to get the draw to your liking. Very comfortable to wear. The first day I wore it, I actually forgot it was there, when I went in at night to change into comfort clothes I remembered!!

Good product. I was rather concerned about the holster being a hard plastic scratching the gun, but it doesn't seem to.

I have the Fobus and it works well as long as I am wearing a jacket. Otherwise I just leave it OC. Doesn't conceal well enough for me under a regular shirt, but I have a small frame so that is a common problem. Other than that the holster is a great buy.
