Holster cant angles
Is there much difference between a 10 degree cant on a holster vs a 15 degree cant?

I'm looking at Kydex holsters for a full size M&P 9.

I plan on carrying the holster between 3:00 and 4:00. If that helps. I don't know if there is much difference between 10 and 15 degrees. Generally I carry at 4:00, 4:30 and use a 15 degree cant. Since this holster will be more so, next to my hip or slightly behind it, I wasn't sure if losing 5 degrees would be that big of a deal.

I think this is 100% subjective. Only you can answer if it will be comfortable or not, and IMHO the cant is purely a comfort issue.

I double checked and the difference is 5 degrees. Wink

Thanks! This just made the decision so much easier! Tongue

.....I got one with the 10 degree cant when I realized you can adjust the cant by moving the belt loops up and down. I'm probably rarely ever going to carry this gun anyways so it doesn't even matter too much. I just figured I would promote some firearm-related talk on a firearms forum. Big Grin
