fellas... my wife has grown tired of lugging the 686 around, and wants to switch. she's narrowed the field down to 2... glock 23 and h&k pro-something or other.
anyway, her preference is for cross-draw carry. can somebody reccomend a holster or 3 that will work for owb cross-draw carry for women? failing a good for-women cross-draw, what holster do other women seem to like for concealment? she's not one to wear a belt, so maybe something w/ a paddle option?

I believe Kramer makes a holster specifically for women. . Perhaps others can help you more.
I would check Galco, Tucker Gunleather, El Paso Saddlery.
Try the Glocktalk womens forum. The girls there may be better able to help you.

never heard of sam andrews before so i appreciate the heads-up. its looking like i'll probably end up w/ the cross draw from sam andrews and one of the women's holsters from kramer. i have a drawer full of holsters for me - my wife might as well have a drawer full, too.
she's decided on the glock. she really likes the feel of the gun, especially the weight and balance. i was a bit surprised by that actually. the sig 239 deserves an honorable mention, as does the h&k.
anyway, thanks for the info on the holsters.

I think you will be very pleased with Sam's crossdraw. it gets rave reviews. Do a search on either "Andrews" or "crossdraw" and you will be surprised at the favorable posts about him and his work. He is a true craftsman/artist and a super nice guy as well.

For high quality cross draw rigs(some designed for female use, ;) ) I'd check these sources;
