Cross Draw Or Weak Hand Draw?

My primary edc is a S&W M&P 2.0 C9. I carry it iwb at about 4 o'clock strong side, which for me is on the right. Instead of carrying a back up mag, I've chosen to carry a small back up gun, which is where my Micro 9 comes into play. I started out carrying in my right front pocket (Galco pocket holster), and I'm getting weary of pocket carry - relatively slow an tedious draw. I've decided to go iwb on the Kimber to. I'm leaning to getting a DeSantis Inside Heat to wear on my weak (left) side. My question to you all is, considering where I'm at, would you prefer to cross draw (using the right hand reaching over) and getting a right handed model, or practicing using the weak hand and getting a left handed model? I could see potential advantages too both, but I'm new to this concept, and I was hoping to get some input to maybe save some headaches. Thanks gang!

Your question is kind of personal taste and I don't know what my answer would be. What I do know is that carrying extra magazine/s or ammo would be easier, simpler, quicker.
I also don't think you will stay with carrying a backup pistol because it won't take long before it feels like you are wearing concrete pants.
If your a LEO a backup pistol may be needed, required, desired.

I agree with Arland, I carry an Ultra .45 with a spare 10 round magazine.

Thanks Chuck, 10 round I like your style. I usually have at least one 8 round and if out of town or in a bad, bad Leroy Brown part of town I have two 8 rounders.

I'm with Arland and Chuck. On rare occasions, I pocket carry a 642.

When I'm headed for an iffy area, I grab a second 10 rounder, gives me a total of 28 rounds.

What brand 10 rounder you using? what was most reliable for you?

I have 2 Chip McCormick 10 rounders, I don't remember what I paid for them I think they were about $28.00 apiece.

Fair enough. Carrying a back up mag may be easier and simpler, but I'm not sure if it's necessarily quicker. I suppose it depends on what you're used to/training. I'm just a regular Joe, not leo. Another benefit of carrying two guns is that I might be able to hand it off to a friend ect to attempt to thwart a foe. Not a primary reason but it's there.

Chuck, I ordered two Chip McCormick 10 rounder's from Brownells @ $29.99 each, they were few dollars cheaper per magazine at MidwayUSA but Brownells had a code FREE shipping over $49 bucks, so I saved about 2 whole dollars. lol

Your memory is spot on.
