Wouldn't the crossbreed weigh more than the lcr?

I just use a pocket holster for mine. My crossbreed for the kimber is cowhide and works for me.

My Kimber crossbreed is cow also and very comfortable.. I think with the lcr I wouldnt even feel it, thats why I am thinking the horsehide for the ultra cozy package

I went with horsehide to help with moisture and sweat. Costs a little more but I think it's worth it.

I'll ditto that. I have a Milt Sparks IWB on order (5 months and still waiting). For the heat and humidty in my area the extra protection of horsehide makes sense.

It all depends if you want it to moo or neigh!
