    Twelve o'clock would be right above man land and 1 o'clock would be just to the right of that. Six o'clock would be right above your rear end.

    FBI cant means that the grip of the gun is tilted forward just a bit and the muzzle is pointed rearward instead of strait towards the floor. It makes it easier to draw the gun for some people.

    Another thing. It's a very personal matter where you choose to carry and it might vary according to the situation, how you are dressed that day, etc. so there really is no one size fits all approach.

    For example I have a Bianchi OWB holster with a slightly forward cant and I agree that it helps me to draw easier. I position it just forward of my right hip or not quite 3:00 o'clock. My arms (I'm embarrassed to say) are too short to carry any further back.

    But come this summer I will have to review and revise my situation for the Texas Panhandle heat.
