Can someone explain cant on a holster. I don't know what it is or how to know what to adjust it to.
The can't is how it twists. Basically a holster is made to seat a gun at 90 degrees. Can't allows you to adjust the angle to make the draw more smooth and comfortable. A lot of holsters don't have adjustable cant. Look up your manufacturer and model and see what it says.
When you look at a holster as it's worn with the gun secured, you may notice the firearm tilted slightly forward. That is cant (it's also a lumberyard term. Discussion for another occasion).
By the way, welcome aboard! Please, stop by the intro section and tell us a bit about yourself! And stick around a bit, take your coat off and kick your feet up.
Thanks guys! It sounds like a holster with an adjustable cant is what I need!
think about it like the holster is a clock and the cant is the hour in which the firearm is placed into the holster...
Boom, easy enough..
I thought it meant "I kant get my dam gun out of the holster!"
