Holster angles

During the awesome Blackwater training, one of the things I messed around with was the draw angle for my pistol.  I have/had normally carried with a slight butt-forward cant on the pistol, however at Blackwater I messed around with carrying with no cant whatsoever.

Things I learned: no cant is faster on the draw, but slightly canted makes the gun easier to conceal and wear while you’re in a car.  So, my carry holsters will still retain the slight butt-forward cant, but my “competition” rigs such as they are will either be neutral with no cant, or even have a slight cant with the butt to the rear.
