    Cross Draw

    I'm considering a cross draw holster to carry my revolver in. I carry a J frame or a Speed Six. For those of you that carry this way, what position do you carry it in on your body, and do you have any suggestions for holsters?

    I'm assuming this would be OWB? Revolvers are different in the grip than semi-autos, so I'm thinking you'll want to find one with a cant such as a counter-car-jacking rig. I carry cross draw on occasion, and it is OWB but I need to remain concealed here. I use a straight drop holster from Mitch Rosen and it's the Upper Limit holster. You however may be interested in the TRV or transverse holster as pictured here

    Mitch Rosen holsters are very nice IMO. I only have one, but it's one of my top three best holsters. I wish I was able to use it more often.

    I like cross draw for sitting/driving long periods for comfort and ease of draw. If your belt buckle is 12 o'clock, then between 12-1 o'clock to maintain speed of draw. Anything further toward 11 postion is gonna be slow like a shoulder rig.

    I'm thinking about this guy for my G-36: http://www.fist-inc.com/holsters/holster/42.htm

    Actually, I have this holster for my Glock-36. It's both a driving holster and a crossdraw holster...works well.

    Crossdraw at about 11:00 for a right handed draw... Best way for me to carry while driving. Fist holster also.

    I'm looking hard at this one not only for driving but for security of the gun on the Harley. I have this phobia of losing my gun while I'm riding.
    For a man interested only in passin' through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle….

    Side Guard Holsters - OWB Holsters - Cross Guard
    I have two crossguards, one for SP101 and the second for S & W 642. 11 o clock for sitting and driving is correct. On the motorcycle 11 o clock is quite comfortable. But I have been wearing cross draw holsters for years and am sold on the comfort and the DRAW. Good luck on your holster search.

    Lobo makes a nice dual carry model so you can carry either crossdraw or strong side.
    I like crossdraw for driving or for riding the ATV in the woods.
