    extremely extreme carry angles

    It's a Seventrees SCP from the Sixties, and the carry angle is an extreme 54 degrees as measured by my software. The revolver (for a Chiefs Special) is so small that, with standard grips, it's unlikely the angle makes any difference at all to comfort and concealment; but to draw it would be another matter. I expect that the pull-through retention would enable a "snatch" of the revolver toward the target; in those days it wasn't part of the discipline to get a full grip before drawing. Paris' catalogue image made it appear that the angle would be more reasonable; it's something to watch for when buying from a catalogue (or website); Michael and I go to a lot of trouble to display my own range of holsters at the real carry angle.

    That is one of my minor gripes looking at holsters on websites.

    AKA holsters not being photographed as they would be on the belt or at the actual wearing angle.

    I need to either tilt my head or my laptop in order to see the exact "on body" carry angle.

    Yeah, it seems like when they photograph the holsters they angle them to make them look rakish and sexy. I'd rather see them as they will look on my belt.
