    Can someone please explain "cross-draw" do me. I don't understand it. Is it in the 2 o'clock position? Wouldn't that be pointed to the family jewels? That would make me rather nervous... I am just asking because I am thinking of purchasing a G27 with a Mitch Rosen Tito Revenge IWB holster which is a cross-draw. And does anyone have any pictures of holsters in the cross-draw position? Also, does it print on the front side of your shirt? Thanks!

    Cross draw carry is when you carry you handgun on the opposite side of your strong side with the butt forward...as shown here:

    I am finding that CD (crossdraw) is much more comfortable and makes it much easier to draw while seated in a car. I can also draw with my weak hand much easier than if I was wearing it SS (strong side).

    CD also prints less than if I wear my gun SS at the 2:30 position.

    The only draw back, as many have pointed out, is the ease that someone can disarm from the front. I am not so convinced that it isnt easier for a BG to approach from behind to disarm someone who is carrying on his SS,...whereas if I am carrying CD, the person needs to be generally in front of me where I can better see him coming to thwart his attempt.

    I am still undecided as to which method of carrying concealed is tactically more sound.
