USPSA newbie holster height question
I'm new to the forum and to USPSA. I'll be shooting Production, but first I need to set up my rig. My question is: how low is too low for a drop holster?
I bought a BOSS Hangar holster, which is height-adjustable. I believe the rule about holster height is that the heel of the butt of the gun cannot be lower than the top of the belt.
But does that mean that a holster's height is legal as long as any portion of the butt of the gun is higher than the top of the belt? Or does it mean that the entire butt of the gun must be higher than the top of the belt?
Sorry for the dumb question, but I want to be sure before I button everything up.
Thanks for the help.

Welcome to the forum!
To answer your question, any portion.
So if the butt is just a fraction of an inch above the top of the belt you're OK. Cant will also affect that, so if you get the height right, then change the cant recheck the height.
BTW, the BOSS is a nice system. If you got the standard spacers you'll be legal as far as distance from the belt.
