For the most part, gun holsters are generally available with one of two possible cants:
Straight Cant - Also called zero cant, these are holsters that ride in the straight up and down position.
Forward Cant - Made popular by the FBI, the forward cant is usually built on a 15 degree angle as this was determined to be optimum by the FBI.
Which one is best?
That really comes down to personal opinion. Some argue that the forward cant is easier to conceal, but that's debatable. Others argue that the forward cant offers a slightly quicker draw, but I've never personally noticed a draw speed difference.
My advice would be to try both cants and see which you prefer.
