    This Detective Speical frequently goes along in this Triple-K holster, riding high on the belt, beneath a sports jacket.

    Long trips in the car can be trying.
    I like the 9R Bianchi AKA Steve McQueen rig.
    My Milt Sparks Versa Max works great too.
    Both are very comfortable.
    The seat belt is the issue here.
    I'll take 2 holsters along on a long trip and my 642 plus the 36.

    If on the Harley I think a LH rig would work well or dual 9R for my 66 and 640. Giving instant option of 38/357

    What about the Fanny Pack? I work on building sites and wear one everyday with a full size G17 in it. A snubbie would fit perfect too (I am waiting on a license for a Daytonics and will be carrying that for a while). The Fanny pack (we call it a MoonBag in this country) has a square center compartment with a smaller one either side. The trick is that the center compartment runs behind the other two, so your longer barrels conceal very well. The gun compartment has quickpulls to access the piece in a hurry. The side pockets can hold cuffs and spare speedloaders / mags. With a pair of Cargo Shorts or jeans on no-one even looks twice at the pack. Obviously wouldn't work with "smart" clothes or a suit. Take a gander at Condor Outdoor Products - Elite Tactical Gear for Military and Law Enforcement to see the pack I use.

    During my 40 plus years carrying off duty both full size and small, I will offer an opinion based on personal experience. Ankle holsters are out. Too awkward to reach in a physical confrontation and different positions. Fanny packs are also out. In fact any off body carry is. You lose some control of your firearm no matter how secure you think it is. Some require two hands to open some one, however it still is slower than holster presentation. The belt is the safest most secure method while providing the easiest and quickest presentation in most situations. I.E. Standing,sitting, in a struggle, in a car etc.

    I voted cross draw since it is more comfortable to me. Having to change posture to draw from the strong side or move a coat out of the way to get to the revolver puts me out of balance for a moment. Reaching across -to me - is smoother and requires less movement. Having the holster placed at a comfortable angle an located where you don't need to twist your torso to draw is my preferred method.
