Cross Draw Holster | Concealed Carry Gun Holster

When someone tells you they like a holster, then you should ask them if they like the draw as well. They may be perplexed, but this is a fair question.

We need not refer to the Professional or the DOJ as a strong side holster as they obviously are, but the crossdraw, why, there it is in your face. It is a cross draw. You may strap the holster on and be quite happy with the way it feels and how it balances Old Loudmouth. But if you are not confident with the actual draw, meaning the deployment of the handgun, you are hapless. The crossdraw holster is demanding of time but once the advantages of the type are understood, it is a holster that is appreciated. The trick is understanding the crossdraw. For my part, that is a long story.

I admit much of my early fascination with this type of carry was predicated upon the media and photographs of a certain Southern sheriff of some fame carrying his handgun crossdraw style. The first holster I hand-crafted was a crossdraw. It was nothing to brag about but I enjoyed it. Then came my first uniform and formal training. Wearing a Smith & Wesson Model 28 to my first revolver class—and it was all revolvers in those days—I was warned that no uniformed officer was allowed to carry a crossdraw holster.

(At that time, Boise, ID, and a few other agencies issued the crossdraw but I was the low man on the totem pole and not ready for an argument my first day on the range.) The disadvantages of the crossdraw were pointed out forcibly.

1. The crossdraw holster draw is across the target, not through the target. In other words, if you draw from a strong side holster you will be drawing into the target, and if you fire too soon you may hit the target in the lower body. Fire too late and you may hit him in the neck—with the crossdraw you are sweeping across a fairly narrow stretch of the body with more possibility of a miss.

2. The crossdraw requires unnecessary movement in reaching across the body, requiring the hand to stop on the handgun, and after the draw is made, the hand must stop the sweep across the threat. This is in comparison to the quick elbow to the rear and scooping the handgun from the holster draw of the strong-side type.

3. The crossdraw draw presents the handgun in a manner that allows the gun to be grasped by a gun grabber practically as easily as by the wearer himself.

All of these criticisms were taken to heart and it was many years before I questioned their validity. They were correct as far as they went, but predicated upon facing a stationary target that we were squared to. This was not a very realistic scenario.

Time passed, and I was carrying a .45 auto while in a position as patrol lieutenant and able to carry pretty much anything I wished. But I never seriously considered a crossdraw holster until a friend showed me his. He had taken it from a gang leader, and it was among the first Gordon Davis holsters I had seen.
