I have an Alien Gear holster and like it a lot.

The reason we don't use cross draw in competition is because it is against the rules. When you cross draw, the weapon breaks the 180 and sweeps the shooters behind you. Den

I have an Alien holster and my son has a Alien holster and we both like it a lot. I truly believe it's the best holster ever made.

Cross draw is standard for SASS shooters.
#1 - few carry at 9 o'clock, rather the holster is somewhere between 10 + 11, almost an appendix carry. (try reaching a cross draw clear over on the hip, most of us don't have that long of arm)
#2 - a slight twist while drawing ensures you don't even come close to 180

I prefer cross draw for concealed carry, as in #1 above. Try drawing from a right hip, seated in the car, buckled in, seat belt buckle in the way, console in the way. My pickup with a bench seat is not too bad, both cars I cannot reach the gun, let alone bring it into play.
