FBI cant is not a position, it is an angle. I generally get my leather holsters made with a 5 degree butt forward cant but almost all of my kydex is straight drop. All of which are worn in about the 4 o'clock position. The advantage of the straight drop is that it allows you to keep your wrist locked in line with your forearm throughout your draw, the downside is that it takes marginally longer to draw since you have to come straight up to clear the holster before you can move to present the weapon. With a true FBI cant, the advantage is that you can effectively conceal a larger weapon and your drawstroke begins the presentation as well. The downside is that your grip is naturally going to be slightly weaker since you have to cock your wrist slightly.
