Reply to "Duty Holsters - positioning, angle, height, and retention"

Interesting thread.  

I'm quite interested if this wouldn't be a vast improvement for a female duty holster.

Many, if not all make gaining a proper grip and  draw stroke   awkward due to hip and shoulder width.   

 

I only know one guy that carried with a muzzle forward rake and he was a serious shooter.  He liked it because it required  no breaking of the wrist.  When transitioning to Gen 1 Glocks he rushed a  holster to a leather worker to get the belt slot modified.

  If I remember correctly the holster was a Bianchi 19L which being a fairly high ride put the muzzle about where a watch pocket on a pair of jeans.   I always figured it was an influence from IPSC of that era as many used a competition holster with a similar setup.   Anyone  else remember Ernie Hill Speed Leather rigs like that?

With appendix carry being all the fad, I've  wondered  if a muzzle forward high ride holster that roughly paralleled  the inguinal crease  would be an improvement.   It would allow the muzzle to point forward of a man's junk and re-holstering safer.  If the gun was close to the body concealment wouldn't be an issue.   Most of all it would allow wearing a jacket/suit coat putting the gun butt about the same plane as a bladed hand pushes back the garment and without dropping the shoulder back as the FBI cant requires.
