    FBI or Forward Butt Incline cant simply means the butt of the gun is angled or canted past a vertical plane. Its a general statement meaning anything past vertical.

    I agree with Gary's post...cant and carry location are the most "personal' things regarding proper holster design. He's a master and you should listen to him............I Do! :D

    Shoot well.
    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice..........Rush

    A butt forward rake is a condition in which the firearm is carried at an angle on the belt with the muzzle pointing somewhat to the rear. This tilts the butt up and slightly forward. It is also called the FBI cant. Please give me a call. I'll be more than happy to help you figure all this stuff out. As with most things, it's pretty simple once someone "shows you the ropes".

    IWB 3:30 or 4:00 for the delta in a Tucker "The Answer" and the Bersa in a Desantis.
    Works great for me in any activity.

    I gotta go with P95's advice...keep experimenting. But generally speaking the IWB is usually designed to fit in the slight hollow area (and even us big guys have 'em) between the spine and the hip...usually just behind the hipbone. But be careful...a gun with a long barrel will tend to rest directly on the SCIATIC NERVE and this can be quite painful and lead to a chronic condition.

    Just so you all aren't worrying about me and losing sleep over my holster dilemma, I figured I would let you know I ordered a Max-Con V today to replace all the holsters the gun shop has sold me. I had it narrowed down to a couple and decided to go with Brommeland. He was lots of help. Thanks for all the suggestions!!!!

    Howdy, Realleycat! I'm glad to see that you survived another hurricane season. I can honestly say that after last year, I was truly happy to see the FL border in my rearview mirror!
    (Oh, and thanks for the plug, too:)

    Matter of fact, Euc, my best buddy totes an 'xd' in a MaxCon V and loves it. This guy is 5'9'', 250lbs, and the V allows him to carry that pistol in comfort. Just thought I'd break the news to ya!
