By the way, in response to an earlier question about "why" the forward cant (muzzle forward) was used: To keep you from shooting yourself in the leg by having the muzzle always pointed in the general direction of the target, rather than down at your foot. I think it started with the single action fast draw guys (like Thell Reed), but worked very well for the 1911's too.
