FBI canted holsters

2899 12
Hi,

For those FBI canted holsters, where are they supposed to be worn? Right at your waistline's 3:00 position, or slightly back at the 4:00 position? I suppose having it farther back will aid concealment and that's why it's angled forward? Thanks.

With a straight-drop, I'm right at about 8:45. I saw a guy on Sunday, who was wearing his Bianchi at 3:00 (righty), and couldn't figure out how he could get a quick or secure draw, with the butt of the gun almost proceeding him wherever he went.
Any suggestions where, or which, to look at and consider for a 'FBI-canted' holster to fit the Kimber Ultra Carry? Any idea which model number of the Bianchi would be the proper size. Thanks.

Thanks to all for the feedback.
