    Again, just trying to foster some discussion of a method of carry I have never heard of. Maybe the correct approach would have been to start a second thread.
    Not referring to anybody or any thread in particular. It's a common topic that comes up whenever the internet discusses methods of firearms carry, however, and an example of the power of rationalization when it comes to (unnecessarily) justifying personal preference. I've seen some bizarre methods of carry over the years. I don't judge anyone's particular preferences for firearms or holsters...irrelevant to me as long as it doesn't affect me.

    Yeah, that's where I'm focused on addressing the SOB issue. It's not an overriding quest...just something I'm casually pursuing. My carry needs are generally met by a leather DeSantis Speed Scabbard, which works well, for me, for the three or four different guns that I might carry. I have one for each. I just picked up a VP9sk...expecting a holster from UPS today so I can see if that double-stack beast will work for me for concealed carry.

    Hmac - Based on this thread and since I'm rolling in dough (what my wife says I think) I ordered a right hand DeSantis Criss Cross for my Glock 43. The experiment was a failure in my view. The thing was flopping all over the place back there. I reversed it and put it on with the holster inside the belt and the belt loop/slide out. That calmed things down quite a bit, but dang it I'm left handed. For it to work for me I should have ordered a left hand cross draw and flipped it.

    I know that DeSantis doesn't make one for your Walther, but wanted to let you know in case you did find a cross draw that fits.

    Since you don't except PM's now the whole internet knows of my folly.

    Thanks for the info. The whole SOB thing for me is a work in progress...not a high priority. None of us has holsters that work great for us in all circumstances. I don’t carry a gun that often and the stuff I use works well for most situations but I’m just trying to fill the gap.
