    Never could get a shoulder holster adjusted "right" for me, and I'm just used to having my gun strongside. Have tried crossdraw via a belt holster and it seemed ideal for carrying a big long-barreled revolver - but I don't carry any of those, so kind of dropped the whole thing.

    Crossdraw

    In cold weather, during which I wear a fleece pullover quite regurlarly, I will carry a PM-40 in a Fist #42? driving to crossdraw holster. I've practiced with it on some scenarios, and find I'm slightly faster to the first shot with this method, than I am from a strong side holster with a closed front cover garment. Also, this is the easiest method to make a weak hand draw I have found. On the other hand, I have found that it's not really any more comfortable than strong side carry while riding, and with a seat belt, I don't know that it's that much easier to access the hand gun while driving. All in all, It is a nice option to have in your trunk of tricks.

    Crossdraw Uses

    Occassionally:

    A Glock 17 with a Haugen Handgun Leather "Huntington Wedge". Particularly good while driving. Can also wear the "Wedge" as a strong side 3:00 since it has a vertical rake. A nice holster, and the wedge keeps the grip of my Glock in close to me.

    I have short arms and a long torso and a big belly so that makes a belt-ride crossdraw very difficult for me. I have nothing against the method though. You normally sized folks go ahead and enjoy yourselves.

    At the range where I used to work, all my firearms were holstered for crossdraw with my company shirt covering it. Right shoulder problems prevents me from drawing strong side easily but no problems with a crossdraw. My employees used to joke about that UNTIL I mentioned that anyone jacking the place will always wack the guys they see with the guns first. But then again, every regular shooter knew that was how I carried.

    Nope, I never liked the lack of control from a cross draw stroke. Too easy for someone to stop your draw.

    i carry cross draw only when driving and thenonly about 50% of the time...and as retsupt99 said "i am in ohio" & there open sight requiremnt crapola.
    it sure is a whole lot easier and faster to draw while sitting in my truck than strong-side. and i have a 50-50 chance that it'll already be pointed at the intended target should it ever be draw into service while in said vehicle.

    This is mine. That is yours.

    Lets keep it that way.

    I don't carry truly crossdraw but it is closer than strong side. I carry my 225 at about 12:30. I have easy acess while driving and it hides better under an untucked shirt (for me).

    At the moment I don't carry cross draw, but I may look into a shoulder set up eventually.

    If I were to carry CD on the belt, it would likely be a revo at 1:30 or so. And then only in the winter where heavier clothing would be worn. Since I rarely dress warm to some peoples standards, it isn't very likely to be an issue any time soon.

    I use a shoulder holster, http://www.andrewsleather.com. I use their Monarch Rig and it is great. Sometimes I use a cross draw holster when driving as strong side is very hard to get at while buckled in.
