    Thumbs up Driving to crossdraw holster.

    Thanks for the lead Retsupt...

    I was looking for a holster that would go from driving to crossdraw.
    Got the FIST #42 Driving to Crossdraw.
    Fits my P99 like a glove. Hides well under almost any untucked shirt and in the driving position it holds the pistol exactly where it should be.

    It's a fine holster. But the mag release can get depressed in the process of adjustment. So, after you adjust the tilt with the handgun in the holster, make sure that the mag is seated.

    Good advice for any pistol.

    When holstering any semi there is always the chance that a push or a pull, here or there from the leather, kydex or fingers might come in contact with a mag release.

    Thank you for the photos! This sounds like the holster I will be looking for. Does anyone use is for a Glock ? 19 or 26 specifically.

    Thanks,

    Can I see a picture of the backside of the holster I'd like to get a good look at how it attaches to the belt and how it swivels.

    The belt shown is not my carry belt, just for demo..
    I carry with a double thick 1-1/2 inch Bianchi gun belt, which fits much better than the cheap jeans belt shown.

    Photo 1 shows the holster in the crossdraw position.

    Photo 2 shows it in the driving position.

    When going from crossdraw to driving, the tab (indicated by the pencil) is depressed and is slid over the belt. The whole rig then tilts into a comfortable and secure position that provides easy access while sitting or driving.

    To go back to crossdraw all you have to do is twist the rig back to the upright position and it automatically locks back in place.

    The snap at the bottom can be used to slip the rig on while wearing your belt but I find it easier to thread the holster on after my belt passes the first belt loop.

    Hope thes pictures show what you want.

    ps. If the gun remains in the holster as shown there is LITTLE if ANY chance of contacting the magazine release in any way. But it is always a good thing to check after doing any adjusments with your pistol.
