    Between 10-15deg is what I like. I'd guess that the Raven Concealment holsters, which are my faves, are about 10deg or so. I know they're slightly less than 15deg because I have a holster made to 15 and it's less aggressive than that.

    Very generally speaking, the more past 3:00 you go (for right-handers), the more cant you need.

    Depends on where on your body you carry, body type and if you have any arm or shoulder problems that make one cant easier to draw from than another.

    For appendix and shorter grip guns, Zero to 5 deg
    For 3 to 5 o'clock carry with larger guns, 10 to 20 degs because it helps hide the grip so you don't print as much.

    4:00 with a 15 degree cant in a High noon tuckable. I should be getting my SuperTuck soon, so the degree might change a little

    OWB, don't like anything in my pants, unless it's in a Smart Carry. Cant on those OWB holsters!

    My IWB carry is an SOB at 30 degrees of cant. This puts the grip at about 4:30-5:00 position with the belt loop at the 6:00

    15 degree+ forward cant (so much easier to conceal the butt, and the biggest carry I have now is a Glock 30), usually 2:30-3:00 position
