    Just like any other piece of equipment, there isn't a one size fits all solution for every role.

    There are active retention, passive retention, kydex, nylon,leather, elastic, IWB, AIWB, OWB, SOB, X draw, chest rigs, UA horizontal, UA vertical. All have their place and role.

    Normal day to day I prefer passive retention because I have no intention of wrestling with someone or of being in a position where my activity will knock it loose.

    On a motorcycle I prefer either AIWB or active retention in event of a crash or collision I want more control over the weapon's retention.

    In professional environments where a jacket is appropriate I prefer dress leather, strong side, or UA horizontal, occasionally I'll use a SOB or belly band for a BUG.

    Belly bands work great for resort casual, business casual, and dress casual.

    AIWB dovetails with the belly band for dress casual and business casual while I tend to it more for daily dress.

    UA vertical I like for suppressed pistols (I won't elaborate more on that one).

    Wrenching the subject back on topic, who's got him a cross-draw or shoulder rig for a K-frame that they like?

    I liked David Steele's stuff quite a bit. He's the reason I carried a Gerber Folding Sportsman II and a Mk I wherever I went, bought my first Randall in 1979, practiced using knife and gun together in close quarters, etc. His writing made sense and was relatable to what I'd been through, quite innovative at the time. He seemed to me -- young man that I was -- like a fellow who knew what he was doing.

    Any shoulder holsters that work with a red dot sight? I keep a iron sighted glock just for use with the Miami shoulder holster, but would rather carry a red dot sighted pistol.

    I think GALCO is now making vertical holsters cut for an RDS.

    I prefer AIWB most of the time, but cross draw is far better when wearing coveralls.
