    Straight drop OWB. What'cha got?

    Seems today 95% of the holsters out there are canted. I understand the reasoning behind it, but I've gotten pretty fond of wearing my guns at a true 3:00 position. I have my MTACs adjusted at a straight drop and am looking for some no-cant OWBs.

    This Rosen looks awesome. Any others out there?

    Try Haugen Handgun Leather:

    Haugen Handgun Leather ::: Quality Handcrafted Leather Goods For The Discriminating Shooter - concealment holsters, hunting holsters, cowboy holsters all hand made

    Jerry is a prince of a fellow and makes great leather.

    The specific holster I'd recommend is the Huntington Wedge:

    I have a Wedge for my G17. A great fit, a fair price, and a bonus - it can be used at crossdraw or appendix too. This pic does not do mine justice - it is cordovan.

    Zero Cant

    I would say that there are ALOT:

    HBE has an Avenger style
    I have one
    Galco
    UBG
    TT Gunleather
    K and D
    High Noon
    and many others.
    Most custom makers, that I have found, will adjust the cant when possible.

    I love my Mitch Rosen Upper Limit Express actually. It was my first real leather holster for my G27! Strong side or cross draw. Ultra high ride IMO and very good fit! Tight into the body. Judge for yourself.

    I have an Upper Limit for my Sig 229. As a Lefty, the straight drop makes getting in and out of my car lots more pleasant (you have to experience it to know what I mean).

    I carry my C Rusty Sherrick with a Glock 26 well past 3 o'clock. No cant. Looks kinda familiar to that Rosen, eh?

    Haugen!

    Here's a better pic of my "Wedge" from Haugen, with a G17:

    Here is my HBE Askins with a straight drop. WAY faster to draw than my IWB's. Great cool wx holster.
