I recently learned of a unique pocket holster
for the Ruger LCP and the small Kel-Tec
auto pistols that carries these weapons securely and discreetly.
There are several good pocket holsters on the market, but as far
as I know, none quite like the Recluse. The Recluse has a
trigger block built into the holster that prevents the trigger
from accidentally being pulled, and also serves to help hold the
pistol in place within the holster. Because of this trigger
block, the same holster can accommodate pistols with and without
laser sights attached.
The Recluse is made of quality leather, and
exhibits excellent craftsmanship in its construction. There are
models to fit both front and rear pockets. I prefer to carry in
my left front pocket, so that is the model shown here. Keep in
mind that for you right-handed folks, the holster will be
In use, the pistol rides in the holster
securely in the pocket. The holster shape breaks up the outline
of the pistol, and looks like a wallet from the outside. Because
of the trigger block, nothing can accidentally activate that
trigger. However, it is still a bad idea to carry other objects
in the pocket with the handgun. If you carry in the pocket, you
should have a pocket designated for nothing but that handgun.
The cover over the muzzle prevents lint, dirt, and debris from
entering, and the pistol stays in place, without turning and
twisting as they sometimes do when carried without a holster. To
draw the weapon, the fingers are inserted between the holster
and the grip of the gun. This releases the trigger block, and
the pistol is quickly drawn from the pocket, leaving the holster
The Recluse holster is a good idea; simple
but effective. It protects the weapon, and keeps it oriented
correctly for a swift presentation when needed. It is built
well, and built in the USA. I like it.
