    I think so. I also think a higher riding holster is easier to conceal. I like a 15 degree or so forward cant; it helps hide the butt of the gun at the 3:00 or so position.

    If you happen to be in part of PA close to WV, I have a High Noon that I bought for a G19 that you can try out if you like.

    I prefer straight up and down, but I appendix carry a lot. I rarely carry further back than 3:00.

    Sooner or later you'll encounter someone who knows what the clip is, or someone who's curious and draws attention to it.

    If that's how you insist on carrying, good luck.

    I used to carry IWB only, now it's only OWB (when not tucked IWB/SOB) around 3:30- 4:00 and a 15 degree cant make for a more comfortable grip and draw for me. It does bring the grip closer to the body, thus concealing much better.

    I like a forward cant myself also, carry @ about 4:30 and I think it conceals better and makes drawing easier for me.

    Pocket carry a smaller gun perhaps then.

    My job, or rather my boss is not a fan of firearms. So I wouldn't likely have a job if I carried at work. What I do is not carry inside the building, locking everything in my car which I dislike but absolutely must do.

    since I carry at 3:00, i have found that a zero cant is better. Sometimes I carry at 4:30 if im carrying a bigger gun. Approx 20deg seems to be a good fit.
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    Sorry it took awhile to respond, I got busy with work and such. Thanks for the offer, I live over here in Lancaster County.

    If anyone is curious I went ahead and bought the Split Decision. Tuckable, and forward cant for the 4-430 position.
