As someone that's seen someone shoot his right nut off, never get me near one of those things even if I'm not wearing it. Accident in that area is really bloody

I actually saw it happen once. Only lost his right nut, but it was bloody as heck.

I carry the 1911 in a IWB belt slide, kidney or small of back. Carried that way the full sized 45 is more comfortable to me than when I carry the Taurus 85 in a front pocket holster.

Talking That's really cocked and locked.

Sure to get a giggle from your wife/girlfriend, & will make you think at least twice about keeping 1 in the chamber, but it works for DEEP DEEP concealment. Sew on some suspender buttons. With suspenders it becomes a nice shoulder rig & it will hold a compact sized pistol or revolver & spare mag/knife/flashlight, without
needing a belt nice & snug against the chest, under armpit.

I know how to and not to do a roll. However, I'm not going to the ground unless it's ABSOLUTELY necessary. It's difficult for me to imagine (unless I'm making a Dirty Harry movie) a scenario in which I would roll on the ground. I know from experience the kind of injuries people receive from even a gentle roll across the ground; a hard leap into a roll. uh, uh. Never lost my pistol from that holster.

Ummm, you do know they make shorter 1911's, right???

I CCW a Springfield Armory Milspec Champion. It has the 4" barrel. Way easier to conceal than the 5".

Alien Gear, and a good belt for CCW.

When out in the wood, I open carry. Nylon side holster from Uncle Mike's. Cheap, but works.

I'm looking at getting a Yanqui holster to try next.

My 1911A1 goes either in my Galco shoulder rig or a slide OWB at 4:00. my 44 Pug goes IWB at 4:00 in a Deep Cover. Loose shirt over all.

Pro Crimson Carry II. Kimber 4" barrel. Had to pull it out of my Simply Rugged Crossdraw on my left side to read the exact model. Works for me with a Duluth Traders longtail T. I'm short and 20 pounds overweight and it is concealed but at times not invisible. I do have a box full of currently un-used holsters like most of you guys. Some work and some don't. Do most of you guys use a liner (undershirt) to keep the gun and holster from eating your hide? I use coolmax shirts always under my body armor at work. I haul crooks for a living.
