    Does this holster exist?

    When I carry (meaning, when I am out of Maryland ) I am generally carrying IWB, 4 o'clock. On the other hand, a good bit of the time I am carrying I am driving. Yeah, 4 o'clock isn't impossible for car carry, but it is somewhat awkward.

    I have seen some of the holsters designed for car carry, and they have some good ideas, but I think I have decided what I would ideally like, if it exists...

    So, I am a righty and want to carry cross-draw in the car. I want it to be OWB, and I want it to have a fairly strong rear cant----not quite horizontal, but close. In fact, what I think I want would look like an upside-down small-of-back holster. The last thing that would be great is if it is snap-on, like Nate's UBG Regulator. That way, I could quickly switch to/from the car holster without having to undo my belt.

    Does such a beast exist...? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Check out the Fist #42 driving/crossdraw holster...it might work for you.

    Andrews Custom, Carjacker Crossdraw

    I can't vouch for this particular brand, as I don't own one; but this holster sprang to mind. It just might fit the bill.

    I can't watch the FIST video at work, so I will have to check it out when I get home later.

    I've seen the Andrews Carjacker before, and it apparently escaped me then (maybe because at the time I wasn't sure what I was looking for) that it is a snap attachment. Bonus points for them showing the gun I'd be most likely to use in the car.

    These definitely have some promise!

    I never understood why all of the "driving holster" websites always show somebody wearing it in the driver's seat of a car with no seat belt on. I've always wondered how the seat belt works with this type of holster.

    I've never had cause to use one, but it seems to me like the seatbelt would either ride above the holster, or partially cover it while still allowing a clean draw. You have a good point though. They should show their holsters properly deployed.

    My point exactly. Seems like you are sacrificing your safe use of a seat belt to have quick access to your firearm. If the seat belt rides above it is on your gut, I would assume, and you are getting cut in half if you hit something. If it rides over the gun, imagine how bad a piece of steel will hurt on your pelvis when you hit something. Chances of me having a wreck are much greater than the chances of needing to draw my weapon. I'll stick to 3:30 or 4:00 when driving.

    I just wedge mine between the seat and the console. Its free and before you get out, just tuck it in your iwbh at whatever 'o clock you like. I prefer Noonish to 1 and its pretty comfy while in the car.

    I really prefer not to go off-body in the car, but I appreciate the response.

    I saw a Police Officer here wearing a cross draw fobus holster, first one I've seen wearing one. I wanted to ask him about it, but he seemed a bit busy at the time.... so didn't bother him. IT fit your description perfectly.

    I am a fan of Ross Leather, and they make one similar to the others listed. The belt loop is secured with velcro, so that the holster can be removed without undoing your belt. Link below:

    I have this holster and I like it a lot. I used it when I had a 150 mile daily commute. For me, the seat belt ran under the holster, just above my belt. I avoided specifically having the seat belt run over the holster to avoid having a permanent imprint of the gun on my hip bone should there be an accident.
