Cant is simply the holster making the pistol set at a forward angle so the draw isn't straight up and down. I guess the angle would be personal preference.Adam_MA said:Could someone please explain to me about the cant angle of a holster? Just not sure exactly what it means. What is a good angle for carrying say with an IWB holster.
Vertical holsters are fastest to draw from. But an angle of about 15 degrees or so tends to conceal better. You'll have to try it for yourself to see what works for you. There really isn't a good way around collecting that box of holsters that don't quite work for you.
