    Question for those who carry snubbies IWB and strong side hip (3-5 o'clock)

    Do you prefer forward cant or do you prefer neutral straight drop for your IWB snubbies at the 4 0'clock position. Also, if you have a remora or a custom holster, how deep do you like to carry.

    I have a 442/remora that I find I naturally give a good 20 or so degree cant. However, I've been experimenting and it seems that the neutral drop seems to work if I carry very low, so that only the grip is above the belt. I'm thinking of getting a nice leather holster, and I was curious about the different ways people iwb their j frames. Thanks

    Personally, I do appendix carry no cant with a tuckable inside the waistband. I use an inexpensive holster and find it works great and is comfortable.

    ~18 degree and mine rides low--as ou have described
    if i pull my cover garmet back you would just see the grip
    mine is at 3:30

    i also have a M60 3" and so the hammer will not catch, it rides a little higher and at 12 degrees; same 3:30

    but its how it feels for you that counts
    and ensure the belt clips stays on the belt as you draw.
    ---the Ace holster clips do not have the "J" cut out
    i don't trust them unless you have to thread the belt.
    its extra time to get dressed but it stays put. FWIW

    I use an Ace holster and it has a great metal clip that holds tightly. Takes some effort to take off belt. See photo as to the type of clip it has. Don't know if this is the type of "J" clip you speak of.

    I use Galco J hook holsters for a lot of my carry guns. I also carry AIWB with zero cant.

    I'm thinking about going with this exact setup, once I get some leather for my police trade in 36. It was pretty comfy when I remora'd it. I'm guessing that leather thickness will play a part in comfort too.

    I carry mine @3 to 3:30 in a Remora...so I can adjust the cant by how I place it.
    I have found that more degrees of forward cant, helps to conceal mine under thin clothes like a t-shirt, but I have a "spare tire" which tends to push the grip outward also.
