The author’s inspiration for carrying cross-draw came from Cowboy Action Shooting and this Bob Mernickle holster made for a 3-inch Ruger Vaquero.

Not every carry method is ideal in all situations. But when traveling belted in a car, carrying cross-draw might just put you in the driver’s seat, tactically speaking.

And while I still prefer other carry methods at other times, I’m using cross-draw carry more and more when I’m in a vehicle.


For the better part of the past two years, I have been carrying AIWB (Appendix Inside Waist Band). Although leery at first of this new (for me) carry position, with the proper holsters and training I became comfortable and fast with it. Drawing from the centerline of the body or at least near it has proven to be faster than any other method of concealed carry I’ve tried.

It is also extremely comfortable. I literally forget I have a firearm on me at times; I can sit all day in the office or drive seven or eight hours with no discomfort and can readily draw standing, sitting or kneeling.
