Chemsoldier:
I would concur with the gist of the thread so far. 

It is not ideal from a weapons retention standpoint.  In LE work, I understand that it was most common in longer barrel revolvers such as some of the highway patrols that used 5 inch .357s. 

Another consideration is that there are many ranges that will not let you work from the holster in cross draw due to the risk of muzzling other patrons.

true, the range i volunteer at does not allow drawing from a holster for a number of safety reasons.
