    Do you carry with or without the forward cant?

    Strange that I was unable to find another thread on this topic.

    To all the IWB carriers out there -- do you like your holster to have a 15 degree forward cant or to be a straight up-and-down? The only IWB I have experience with is SOB.

    I don't know what the degree of cant is on my MS VM2, but I prefer a cant. I carry at 4:00 though, so it helps with access.

    I prefer holsters with a cant to it, as it helps and helps with my draw.

    I like lots of cant for my 5 inch 1911.. The last time I checked it stays around 25 degrees...Maybe a little more when I wear my Mac Daniels II.....

    Cant can really help you hide your pistol....

    IWB, with a ~18-20* forward cant at 8 o'clock (lefty).

    Forward cant, it helps with the natural motion of my arm.

    I can't live without my cant at 4:30, it makes my access and draw more reliable and you can't risk dropping the gun when you need it.

    Sorry, I can't deny that was cheap

    15 degree or more. My favorite for one pistol is a bit over 20.
