Greetings!

Any suggestions on a cross draw holster for an lc9 pro.

Thanks!

I think we need a banner at the top that says "Need a holster? Try Simply Rugged first, save the aggravation."

Why not just move your regular holster to the other side?

Cross draw is by many expert's opinions a bad idea... you tend to 'sweep' things you should not while drawing.

Sweeping unintended objects while drawing cross only happens when ignorant individuals do it. Like anything, do it right and you won’t have any issues.

I can’t see someone one being labeled an expert when they can’t do simple gun handling tasks. Except that most experts are self anointed.

Just what I've been told and taught, sorry to insult you guys.....

Just can't see why I would want to have the gun on my weak side.

But I guess weak side is better than no side...

Not insulted at all, just disagree. If you use proper presentation technique the only thing you are going to sweep is the floor.

Well, it's a heck of a lot easier to draw with one's weak hand than from a holster on the strong side.

And it's possible you were told and taught by one of the above self anointed experts.

Jeepnik, I have to disagree. Maybe I'm just interpreting what you wrote wrong....

My strong/firing hand is my right and I keep my gun holstered on that side.

How is having a gun on my left side and drawing with either my weak hand or as I see cross draw my right hand better than drawing from the same 'right' side?

look at the DeSantis sof tuck holster, can be worn strong side or cross draw. Midway has them on sale right now.
I just got one for a Taurus G2C.

If the firearm is holstered on the strong side, anywhere but appendix, you have to reach around with your weak hand. releasing any safety devices and pulling the handgun will be very awkward and you will not have a good firing grip. Especially true if you happen to be more round that others.

If you are using cross you simply do the old cavalry draw. Faster, more secure and you start with a good grip.

Cross draw holsters are great if you drive a lot. If someone comes to your driver window it is a time saver! “ sweeping someone with a barrel ist verboten!”, but sure limits how a gun is carried! See old movies with cops carrying with horizontal shoulder holsters? IDPA get all apoplectic over that, and shoulder holsters are verboten in their GAMES!

Gramps as you emphasized IDPA, ISPC and any of the other handgun "combat" sports are just that games. Not saying that learning to succeed in this sports is worthless, but anytime you start making rules reality goes right out the window.
