Licensed guns have been a part of households since the day guns were permitted for manufacturing on a large scale. The guns that are kept by normal civilians are usually handguns with a smaller, smoother recoil. These guns serve the purpose of self-defense and hunting when needed. To facilitate these motions, easy and fast withdrawal is necessary. Good crossdraw holsters made of leather serve that purpose. Crossdraw holsters are usually attached to the body at the waistband or fixed at the belt. Some people also like to adjust crossdraw holster placement in their pockets.
