Default Cross Draw Holster, 4", M66

I'll admit I'm lame when it comes to the Search Function.. but I'm looking for a left-side holster (I'm right handed) that sits low on my side for a K frame. I often sit on a tractor and need to be able to draw the revolver. A conventional holster rubs my right-side ribs raw by the time I mow 10 acres. Any recommendations? Thanks.

I believe a lot of people use the Biachi cyclone holster. You might consider a chest rig also.

If you are going to wear it cross draw you obviously won't want any with
butt forward cant. If you order one be sure it's zero cant.
Here on the left is a photo of Bianchi's Cyclone. A good choice.
Next is a DeSantis Speed Scabbard. Draw not hampered by the safety
strap. The wings keep hammer spur covered.
Next is the Galco Combat Master.
4th is an old Safariland, with hammer guard, that I found on ebay.
Last is a DeSantis crossdraw. Possibly the best choice for your
particular need. (Obviously not a zero cant)

I'd agree if we were talking Concealed carry...... but for open or semi concealed "Tractor" /ATV carry the cant on the Cyclone is great!

FWIW I use a Kirkpatrick TCD (Texas Cross Draw) for long drives ...... with a S&W PC Shorty9 (6906) or a Beretta 92 Compact..... some forward cant but easily concealed with an oversized LLBean Flannel lined shirt or Fishing Style shirt .... unbuttoned.

I have carried cross draw for years. It's what works for me. When I look for a cross draw holster, I don't limit my search to "cross draw". Only one of my 8 cross draw holsters was actually designed and marketed as such. The rest are neutral or rear cant strong side holsters that I simply wear on my left side.

Thanks for all the replies. I guess I'll now have to do my homework.

I have and use the Bianchi 111. Galco also makes a nice dual angle holster along the lines of the 111.
