I'm thinking about carrying my RugerLCR (with CT lasergrips) to work with me, and printing or flashing a gun would be grounds for immediate firing, so discreet carry is mandatory....any input is appreciated.

You might be a good candidate for a Smartcarry. I think the earlier models seem better. but anyway. http://www.smartcarry.com/

I routinely carry a S&W model 36 with CT grips, which I believe to be the same size as your LCR. I carry it in an Uncle Mike's Sidekick pocket holster, size 3. (In my front pocket). This might work for you too.

I have a tomcat which is bigger than the LCR and I put it in my pocket in a pocket holster. I'm sure you could do the same.

I like the idea of pocket carry, but my uniform pants are jean cut and kinda snug.. and I'm not due for new uniforms for another 9 months or so hmmm...
Belly band an option for a small revolver?

I have jean uniforms too & I carried (before my fiancé chose it as her carry piece) my LCR w/ the Crimson Trace grips in an Uncle Mike's Size 36 IWB holster @ 2 o'clock. Getting made at work also meant immediate termination, but I carried like this for several months. I'm a mechanic and do lots of bending and stooping throughout my day & the cant & position of the holster didn't make me uncomfortable. I obviously didn't tuck my shirt in at work, but most mechanics don't, so I didn't look out of place.

I'm also 6'3" & 175lbs if that helps give any insight.

Despite what the description may lead you to believe, The LCR will not fit in a size 3 Uncle Mikes. The trigger guard is too deep.

Ask me how I know.

I most often carry the LCR in an ankle holster, under jeans, and as far as I know, it has never been made. I got the ankle holster on eBay for 15 bucks, and wore it all day at home and out, for two weeks before my spouse asked why I no longer carried a gun outside the house.

Pulled up my pant leg and said, "Oh, but I have. For two weeks.

she had never noticed it.

Before the ankle rig, I carried it in a pancake holster on my belt - which necessitates opening the belt to put on/take off the holster - or in this Ruger-supplied IWB. The IWB was much more convenient to add/remove, with the very secure belt clip, but could print under even an untucked shirt.

Whenever we left the house, she was used to seeing me reach up on top of the 'fridge, pick up a gun and strap it on or tuck it in.

With the ankle holster, she never saw it.

Now that spring is here, I either have to go back to the IWB regularly, or commit to wearing full-length jeans all summer.
