    Cant or no cant?

    So I am trying to figure out for a Glock 26 which IWB holster option would be better. Cant or no cant?

    Average body build. about 5'11.

    Something from High noon.

    The Glock 26 MUST stay concealed.

    Where are you gonna carry? 3:00? 3:30? 4:00?

    The further back you carry the more that cant helps hide a firearm. I like some cant, nothing extreme.

    330-4 position.

    It's a basic G26 no grip extender or anything either.

    Generally speaking; anywhere from 3:00 to 5:00, needs a cant.

    From 3:00 to 1:00, aka appendix style, no cant.

    Of course, body types come into play.

    Would that work well with needing to stay concealed though? There are times I need to tuck in a shirt, with that I think it would be hard to have a tucked in shirt. Unless I get one of their tuckable holsters?

    I carry at 3:30 with a 5 degree cant. I'm average height and a little overweight. This has worked very well for me. 4:00 hides even better, but then I need to bend at the knees if I have to pick something up off the ground as the gun butt will begin to print.

    Overall, I haven’t found any real advantages to the forward angle of a holster with the traditional three-o’clock hip carry unless I’m seated. Personally, I find it easier and stronger to draw from a vertical posture than from a forward cant.

    Tuckable huh? Honestly I've never tried to tuck in my shirt while carrying and those I've seen try it have limited success. That's an area I'm very unfamiliar with but am interested in how some people do it if anyone comes in with any info about it.

    There are a few people here with some of High noon tuckable holsters, they conceal nice it seems.

    Cant may, or may not, help concealment - depends on where the gun is worn. Pick the style that helps your ease of draw first, then consider everything else. I wear my gun a little farther forward than most do at 9:00 (I'm a lefty), and I like no cant. If it's that far forward and canted, I feel like I have to break my wrist to get a good hold on the butt. If you wear your gun farther back, you'll probably need cant to achieve that same good grip. A gun worn appendix or crossdraw might need reverse cant. SOB needs almost a flat cant. It's all in what feels good to you when you go to draw your piece.

    I have an IWB with 0 cant and wear it at 3:30-4:00. I should have got the fwd cant as it would be easier to grip and conceals slightly better. My thought is forward of 3:00=zero to aft cant. Aft of 3:00= forward cant.

    Best bet is to try a couple different cants and see which feels most comfortable.

    Well for a sub compact like the G26, Highnoon's holsters with cant ride higher vs no cants, ride lower. Wouldn't a higher riding holster be better for the person to get a firm grip?
