Crossdraw for a snub nose

8 posts in this topic

Thinking about a Taurus 617 - a 7-shot .357 and wondering if any of you have any opinion on what type of holster to get in a crossdraw. Any suggestions?

I carry a Taurus 850 and a S&W 642. Both of these are hammerless and I usually carry them in my front pocket. For a holster you might consider a Simple Rugged. I have the Silver Dollar Pancake and it is very reasonably priced and can be used as either strong side or cross draw. I'm impressed with the one I have. http://www.simplyrugged.com/store/index.html

You might have limited options when looking for a cross draw holster for a snubbie, but really you could use any holster you like as long as it isn't a "forward cant" or "strong side butt forward" holster. I carry all of my handguns in the cross draw position but only one of my holsters is a real cross draw rig and to tell you the truth I prefer a regular holster just because it gives me more freedom to position the holster the way I want it when sitting in a vehicle. I also prefer a strap with a snap to secure the gun. If for some reason you have to draw the weapon with your weak hand a thumb break or push button style release just turned your holster into a gun safe.

That's a real advantage of my 642, it has no hammer, so no strap to hinder drawing.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Right now as I am unemployed it's more of when I can save up or making a wish list.

Have you been able to locate 617? I'm looking for one but the only version on "The Roster" is due to be delisted shortly and was last produced in 2005. Otherwise it has to be a PPT.

Bladetech makes nice poop with the nifty TechLok....which you can easily readjust screws to be at different angle for cross draw....I have one for a 357....nice setup....
