Just a few more.
Yes, there is considerable cant on the holster, but I do not think there is another way around it. I would not prefer it to be that much of a cant. My original holster had just the right cant to it because there were two lower slots for the belt and two upper slots for the belt. I chose the two upper slots which put the gun exactly where I wanted it to be on my body. However, the upper slot on one side prevented me from getting my fingers around the gun handle. The solution was to trim off that part of the holster (by way of redesign and remaking an entire new holster, not by simply slicing off the trouble section). The result was me being able to access the gun handle but the draw back was me having to use the lower belt slot. The way I have it in the photo is placing the belt in one upper and one lower belt slot.One question... I notice your holster is canted forward quite a bit... is that more comfortable for you?
But wouldn't it affect your speed of presentation if you needed to quickdraw, as opposed to, say, a completely 90 degree angle??
People, dwyermw asks these questions because at the last class he was my shooting buddy and was gracious enough to let me use one of his own PPS magazines in class. He also owns a Walther PPS.Mama Bear: Le us know how your PPS functions; number of FTE or if it fails to set the trigger if you use your slide release versus "sling shot" method of pulling the slide back. In other words, if you place a fresh magazine in and use the slide release to move the slide forward and load a fresh round, does the trigger reset every time?
Tough to be human. When you or I quite making mistakes we should give each other a call...but don't wait up for my call. Glad your gun wasn't hurt.People, dwyermw asks these questions because at the last class he was my shooting buddy and was gracious enough to let me use one of his own PPS magazines in class.

dwyermw, as a matter of fact this was my very first time shooting this particular PPS because it is my brand new birthday present. Right from the start line it jammed on me twice. Brownie cleared one of the jams then immediately it jammed again so I went off the line and SwampRat came with his handy-dandy tools and dislodged the jammed bullet in a nano-second.
It was only after he left to tend to something else that I noticed something very peculiar. Horrifying as a matter of fact. I'm fessing up now because class is over and I won't be around for them to yell at me for being so stupid. As with the last class I brought along Baby (that would be my LCP for those of you who don't know I name my guns) because she likes field trips. She was on my right hip waiting to be shot. I brought along two boxes of that elusive .380 ammo and fully relished the thought of putting it downrange. Unbeknown to me at the time I inadvertently loaded my PPS 9mm mags with .380 ammo. Yep, I did that. I honestly did something that stupid. My ammo boxes said Remington so I loaded up three mags of .380 and stepped up on the line hence the jams. Honestly, I'm here to tell you that if something stupid can be done I will be the first one to do it. Note to self: Little bullets go in the little gun and big bullets go in the big gun.
Now that my stupidity is out there for all of you all to see I will say that once we remedied the situation my PPS (his name is Bear) hummed the rest of the day once we oiled it after the slide lock wouldn't hold after I emptied a few mags (with the right ammo). After that nary a hiccup the rest of the day. I love that gun. I accidentally tried my best to kill it but SwampRat preformed emergency surgery and saved its life. I was in the right place at the right time with the right people.
For my stupidity Bear bit back at me and dropped a few hot casings down my shirt and had me dancing and drawing unwanted attention in my direction. Last night I noticed a nice blistering welt next to my collar bone on my neck where hot brass lingered long enough to leave a mark. Perhaps it will go away after a few days.
Don't get any water in that beer!!!...need a beer, a shower and food...not necessarily in that order.
