    That’s a nice rig - do you know what weight leather it is? Without the steel mouth band I would think it would need to be thicker then their usual work.

    It is pretty light. I don't think it is heavier than their usual stuff, but I don't know any more about leather than I know about aircraft.

    Have I shown you this picture I took of a C-130 taking off one day at work? :

    Got it: @Lost River knows leather comes from cows.

    Hambo doesn't know much more than that, but I was always impressed by how tough my Kramer belt scabbards were without reinforcement. I think I'd like it more if it was a cut down, straight drop 55BN, but my rule with good holster makers is to STFU, give them money, and do whatever they tell me to do.
    I just kinda felt like shootin' somebody, Matt, and he was making hisself awful handy.

    Leather comes from animals. Cows, horses, goats, sheep, deer, pigs, sharks, elephants, kangaroos, alligators, rattlesnakes.

    Jim Cirillo

    As mentioned earlier in this thread, I've been playing with the idea of carrying my Sig P365 AOWB slight muzzle-forward. I've never tried it and, have no idea about its viability. Christmas brought me Jim Cirillo's book "Tales of the Stakeout Squad": https://www.amazon.com/Jim-Cirillos-.../dp/B08L41BBDP . The book includes this photo of Cirillo carrying at about the 2:30 position using a very muzzle-forward holster:

    I'd love to hear from any of you using a similar carry method - although perhaps a bit more towards the 1:30 position and with a less radical muzzle-forward cant. Thanks from the Big Empty. ELN

    Here is a good thread:

    https://pistol-forum.com/showthread....l=1#post203383


    I tried a slight forward cant holster from JRC, and it was a very well made holster, but it worked better on me as a crossdraw (which I don't do very often). I'm a lefty, and at the 10-11 o'clock position it was not concealing very well on me. Not enough real-estate.

    YMMV.

    I want one of these for my Blackhawk. Blame it on 1960s westerns.

    I don't have experience with that type of carry, but I am aware of holster offerings from Ted Blocker and C. Rusty Sherrick with a muzzle forward cant. Here's a thread that may be helpful.

    That exact thing, slight forward cant located forward of 3 oclock on the belt works better than anything else for me, right up until my day includes sitting in a chair or vehicle. Then the 3 oclock rear cant lets me draw easier from seated.
    But I like that position quite a bit. Some days I do have shoulder mobility limitations and it helps.
