The crossdraw holster has been around for a long time, dating back to the days of the Old West. It is placed forward and across your body.
Advantages: with a crossdraw holster, accessing the gun becomes easier for your hands. If you are driving a car assuming the wheel is on the right, then you would have more chances of pulling the gun if a thief comes to your window. In a situation where you are sitting on an armchair, pulling out the gun would be a lot easier than if you had a hip holster.
By leaving heavy clothing partially open during inclement weather, it is easy for the hand to cut through a long buttoned jacket and still quickly extract the weapon.
Some tips for carrying your weapon
You should be ready to use the gun if you are carrying it.
Carrying a gun does not mean that you have something that can protect you from all types of threats like magic, but a tool that you can use in certain situations in which you might need to defend yourself or other people.
The record of gun use against crime has been well documented through time, in many cases, it has been successful!
Although you should not make the mistake of thinking that criminals are getting more afraid of being shot, in fact, they become smarter each day. They know that if they do not take the right precautions, they might end up in a tragic situation. Being members of the underworld, crime is something that they have studied pretty close, and know which victims can be their prey, and who do not.
So, in the end, the people who rarely own a gun end up being attacked, while the people who can protect are not always present at the moment.
- You should not let yourself become reckless while using a gun.
Some people believe that in a “fight or flight” situation if you have a gun in your hands, it is easier to shoot someone involuntarily. But it is not the truth!
The gun should always be seen as a measure for self-protection and not to cause harm. Although, many people do the opposite, looking at a weapon as something that gives them power over others. This leads to many deaths and injuries that would otherwise be avoided if everyone used their guns responsibly!
Good people know how to responsibly with the gun, and not use it as a means for evil or to cause harm, but to be used in extreme situations as a tool to control a situation. In most countries, the law will punish any individual that misuses this tool.
- Know what you are doing.
Like in the Old West days, in a shootout, the person who shoots faster and hits first still wins. There are also long-term legal, physical & emotional effects that can follow for both sides. That is why you should get at least some minimal education about weapons before owning one.
