Open top dealers in Canada
« on: January 24, 2020, 04:47:10 pm »
I'm in the market for an open top, are there any dealers in Canada beside Wolverine (they have only two)?  Caliber and barrel length are not important.

There MUST be a dealer in Canuckistan that handles guns for the CAS crowd, yes?

MarStar carries Piettas.

SASS rules are maximum of 30 degrees from vertical, as worn.

Don't forget the "as worn" part.  If your belt tilts down in front like a lot of them do, that will increase the angle.

YUP! I figure roughly 15degrees. Ends up straight down on strong side and 30 Degree on the cross. Depending on to amount of wealth displayed in the area above your belt buckle. Yer mileage on the treadmill may vary. Try some sample holsters before mortgaging the spread.
