Is it normal on their CQC holsters to have to COMPLETELY take the screws out of the back of the "pancake" to adjust the cant?

Also, I don't have a trunk in my car so I'm securing the pistol in lockbox bolted and padlocked to the floorboards, should I worry about the summer heat deforming the holster?

All of my Blackhawk holsters work the same way. You need to remove the 3 screws to adjust the cant. I strongly recommend using the blue "Locktite" (the removeable one) on the screws. I've had screws jump out on me on a few occasions prior to using the Locktite.

I haven't had problems with the holster deforming. I've left my holster out in 122 degree Arizona heat and it seemed to keep it's shape. It got a little "soft", but kept it's shape. Important thing is that you have something in the holster. Either the firearm, blue gun, or the little plastic tab that was shipped with the holster.

You can pick it up at an automotive or hardware store. It's a liqid that goes on the threads of a screw to "lock" it into place. There are a few different types, but the most common are "red" and "blue". The "red" is usually "permanent", meaning that you will not be able to remove the screw once the product hardens. A lot of night sights come with this version. The "blue" is usually "removeable". It holds fast when you need it to, but will come off over long periods of time or with the use of tools (rachet, screw driver, etc).
