    The amount of cant reminds me of D.M.Bullard's "Body Guard" (a leather holster).

    Where do you find this one rides the best for you? And how do the belt slots work for you (they look a bit wide, but with Kydex being quite stiff, that may not matter?).

    Nice and very professional looking rig.

    Nice looking rig. I find my kydex belt slide holsters seem to grip onto the belt once I put them on Southbouond's rig may do the same.

    So far I like it at 5 o'clock. As for the belt slots being wide that is to accommodate my over sized leather gun belt. My belt is 3/8 think so my slots are 1/2.....

    You my not be able to see it in the pic's but I put a large amount of precurve in the slots so the belt slide through without having to put to much pressure on the Kydex..

    Thanks...

    Hey rocky do you use any weld on #1007 when you make pancake holsters?

    I like to glue around the belt slots along with the eyelets...

    I did some more tweaking on this today. I ended up moveing it forward a little also..



    This pic came out bad. I just wanted to show how snug it is...
