    Thanx

    Take a look at this fellow's website: www.WhyteLeatherWorks.com
    He's a forum member, makes good stuff, reasonable prices.

    Whyte leather does good work. I only saw one but it was well done. I have a crossdraw made in Italy but would not recommend it to anyone. Good leather but the angle is not exactly right, stands the revolver up almost straight instead of at an angle. Look at the leather on the Whyte link above. I think you will like it. james

    Take a look at the Sourdough by Simply Rugged. It can be used either strong side or cross draw. It protect the gun from you and the environment and you from the gun.

    These are nice, and reasonable!
    Due to the price of primers, warning shots will no longer be given!

    Whyte is a good maker. I have a shoulder holster for a Colt SA that I have really put through the mill. I use them hard but his has given excellent service over last several years. Good service.
    To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, the trouble with many shooting experts is not that they're ignorant; its just that they know so much that isn't so.

    Howdy !

    Both Bianchi and Safariland call there's the " Cyclone M111 Crossdraw".

    I use a Bianchi M111 w/ my 4" custom heavy barrelled S & W M-520 .357Mag

    I started carrying cross draw when in the Army with 9mm Browning and issue holster, the reason was one can draw nearly as fast with right or left hand. When I carried a 3'' Ruger security 6 daily for work I again carried cross draw and I believe it was an uncle mikes pancake. This holster was great when I needed it concealed as it was near invisible under my coat. I should mention I am right handed. Regards Stephen
