When I carry my Shield 9mm, I carry appendix cross-draw with a very nice Remora IWB holster...so, it works for me...
It is a matter of personal preference IMHO. Some of the arguments against it are that it takes a split second more time to cross draw and in a frontal attack, it would be easier for said attacker to interfere with your draw vs. drawing from your strong side and using the opposite side of your body to shield your drawing motion. I am sure there are many other opinions on this matter and you will probably hear most of them shortly.Just wondering why you never see anyone reviewing/ talking about crossdraw holsters any more.
I was thinking that being fat would be a major reason NOT to crossdraw, since it would make it hard to reach the gun.My shooting buddy carries cross draw when he's CCW. He's a bit bigger around the midsection and says he finds it easier to conceal it and draw it with the clothes he chooses to wear. If it works it works I guess.
I did when I was doing CAS. Looking at a WWII replica cross draw I found online lately. I've got a chest style cross draw for my .454 Alaskan. Yeah, cross draw is still relevant.Just wondering why you never see anyone reviewing/ talking about crossdraw holsters any more.
He's not fat just a bit of a gut. he's also got arms like an orangutan that might make a difference I don't know. I know I don't find cross draw comfortable with my clothes.I was thinking that being fat would be a major reason NOT to crossdraw, since it would make it hard to reach the gun.
Crossdraw is my perferred carry option.Not for or against, but does a crossdraw almost automatically make you muzzle sweep your own body (specifically the weak-side arm)?
Exactly what I was thinking about (having that hand up to block an attacker).Crossdraw is my perferred carry option.
Easy to conceal and very comfortable.
Particularly adventitious when driving or seated.
Being a martial artist, my left hand is instinctively already up and out of the way during a draw.
