Given the success of the Ruger LC380, it was only a matter of time before laser makers like Crimson Trace would start to offer a laser for this weapon. The LC380 was introduced in early 2013 at the SHOT show, and Crimson Trace had a laser available for that pistol in June, so you do the math. The laser option for the LC380 is very popular since Ruger now offers it as a factory option. Ruger LC380 model 3230 ships from the Ruger factory configured with a Crimson Trace laser.
While the laser certain offers some interesting options, the biggest challenge is usually locating a holster that will carry the LC380 with the mounted CT laser. Well, read on as we’ve got some solutions for that problem, including a number of nice CCW holsters specially made for the LC380 wearing a CT laser.
Here are some common questions that we hear regarding holsters for the LC380 running a Crimson Trace laser:
#1 – Will a LC380 with CT fit a holster made for the standard LC380?
No it won’t and here’s why: the Crimson Trace laser is an under barrel/trigger guard version that attaches to the trigger guard. This added item changes the overall dimensions of the gun so a holster made specifically for the standard .380 won’t fit.
#2 – Will the LC380 with a CenterFire Laser fit in a holster made for the LC380 with a CT laser?
No it will not. The CenterFire Laser , while similar to the CT laser model, has different dimensions and requires a holster made specifically for it mounted to the LC380. If you’re looking for a holster to fit your LC380 with a CenterFire Laser, look here.
#3 – Do you have a IWB holster that will fit an LC380 with Crimson Trace laser?
Yes. Our most popular IWB model for this is the MTR Custom Adversary Clip-on IWB model.
#4 – Will a holster made for the LC9 with a CT laser fit a LC380 with a Crimson Trace laser?
Yes, it will. The LC9 and LC380 are built on the exact same frame and have nearly identical dimensions.
