I love Fall in Michigan. Leaves change color, temperatures drop, rain falls more frequently, and so wardrobes change. Problem is, while the additional layers of clothes I’ll wear for warmth afford more options in carrying a concealed handgun, it can also be a bit more difficult to draw when I have to defeat all those clothes. As such I’ll strap on holsters such as Crossbreed’s Dropslide, an outside the waistband holster designed to carry a gun in a lower position.
Normally I prefer a gun to carry “high and tight,” allowing my clothing and strong-side arm to aid in concealment and to prevent printing. But that makes drawing a bit more of a stretch, especially if I am wearing multiple layers. So I take advantage of the Dropslide which, because of the lower carry position, means drawing can be just a tad faster. And not only faster but more sure as Dropslide’s leather backer is cut to allow me to get a full grip on my gun.
In addition to fast and sure, Crossbreed Holsters provide secure, stable and comfortable carry, no matter what gun you want on your side. A Kydex carrier fastens securely to the leather backer (cowhide or horsehide) and the 1-3/4” belt loops help pull the holster firmly to your side — in the case of the Dropslide, “low and tight”.
Retailing for $50.50, the Crossbreed Dropslide comes with a two-week “try it free guarantee” and a lifetime warranty.
