Looking for information on crossdraw holsters
Wondering if anyone out there is using the crossdraw method and if so, what holsters do you recommend?
I've had a lot of bone removed from my right hip and carrying on my strong side isn't the same anymore. I rotate my carry guns between either a 3 or 4 inch Kimber and now it seems that they just slide downward because of the difference in the way the right hip is shaped after the surgery.
Thought I would try crossdraw with the holster and gun weight on my 'normal' hip, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of those style holsters out there. The OWB holsters for right hand carry with three slots that are advertised to be used for crossdraw also just don't seem to get the cant right for me.
Any help is certainly appreciated!

First off, I'm sorry you have had to undergo surgery on your hip. I hate to hear that sort of thing about anybody.
I may be able to help with your crossdraw situation for both of your Kimber's with one holster. We can build a 3" Silent Thunder for your Kimber's with an open end so your 4" will work just as well. The only difference is your 4" will extend past the barrel end of the holster about an inch. The Silent Thunder OWB cant can be adjusted 360 degrees so you can set your cant however you need it for crossdraw. We have a high/low belt slide option (standard) for ride height adjustment, as well as several other mounting options. Please feel free to call me if you have any concerns. We have a 30 day return policy for any reason, so if you order one and can't make it work, you can send it back to us.
The Second Amendment is clear, concise, and not open to interpretation.

I carried in crossdraw position for a few weeks following some surgery I had done. The link below takes you to the FIST holster I used then and still do for driving sometimes. Good piece of equipment.

Great pick here, I have this one for my Glock-36.

Take a look at Mitch Rosen holsters. My cross draw is a straight drop for now.

I have a Mernickle rig for my PM9 that is appendix or crossdraw made rough side out. It is double layered leather with a metal band reinforcing the holster to allow it to be carried either inside the waistband or inside the belt in either crossdraw or appendix. Very fast rig with great retention.

Thanks for the replies and information, everyone!
Good information to start researching, I appreciate it.

How did I miss this thread?
I'm usually annoying everyone with my tireless advocacy of crossdraw. I use a SERPA holster for it's adjustability and retention. I'd like to get a leather holster for better concealment, but I haven't yet. Maybe I'll make one...
Anyhoo, I have hip issues as well and I use crossdraw almost exclusively now.It takes some getting used to, but it works out better for driving, sitting, and even standing IMO. You telegraph less with the motion to draw than with the "elbows out" standard style of draw from strong-side.
Good hunting, and post your final decision. I'm always looking for a new idea!

Well, if you can handle the truth about cross-draws, then here’s another vote for Mitch Rosen’s not so famous ‘Transverse’. I mean; there’s no denying the cool-factor with a cross draw and I suppose if I ever run out of things I really need, I’d order one too! The quality of Mitch Rosen offerings is at the top of the holster food chain, so be prepared to pay through the nose.
