Cross draw

I'm thinking that I might want a cross draw holster for my Defender.
Anybody use one? Any good reviews and recommendations on a brand or maker?

I never tried a cross draw holster, never really gave it much thought. I like all my Wright Leather Works Holsters and this is their cross draw holster.

Cross draw

Check these out for your Defender. I have Two, one for my Smith 627 Snubby and one for my Pro Carry. They are very nice thick quality holsters. Very reasonable and as good as those costing over $100. I prefer the cross draw over all my other carry methods. And can access with both hands.

Looks like it will be harder to conceal due to it's position in front of one of your hip bones. Other than that the Wright crossdraw looks awesome.

They actually conceal better than you would think. I can carry my N frame in a cross draw better then my J frame in a right side OWB.

I'm a big fan of Wright Leather Works and often thought about trying one of their cross draw holsters. My biggest problem is that I've carried my keys on my left side for over 40 years.

Chuck, A hip dude like yourself maybe wants to try a biker wallet with a 2 foot chain and a clip for your key ring.
