You can double tap Alt (or Y/Triangle on console) to holster your weapon.

If you’re tired of having your weapon out, then you can always holster it by double tapping Y or Triangle on the Xbox or PlayStation controllers. If you’re playing on PC, you can holster your weapon by double tapping Alt. If you don’t tap it fast enough, you’ll simply change weapons, so make sure you double tap it quickly. You can also use this method to put your hands down, if you don’t have three weapons equipped.

It should be noted that there doesn’t appear to be any real consequence to walking around Night City with your weapons out, though getting too close to officers in the NCPD could lead to them lashing out or causing trouble, it could also lead bounty targets to run or start fighting, so keep that in mind if you plan on walking around with your big guns out.
