I carry a Dan Wesson Commander Bobtail in a Comp-Tac Infidel.

I really need to get some pictures - maybe later.

EDIT - I suck at taking pictures

This (well, use to). I really find it hard to believe that there's a better IWB holster for the 1911.

Currently carrying a Colt New Agent in a Mitch Rosen ARG Express.

Sir, just to add my two cents, I have a Kimber SIS Ultra that I carry IWB in a Galco summer carry.  I'm still waiting for my VM2 holster.  HTH, 7zero1.

Wilson Combat CQB Elite Factory Photo

My Wilson Combat CQB Elite

Springfield TRP Operator Full Rail

I use a Galco IWB with the Wilson. I have a Raven Concealment Phantom IWB inbound for the Springfield w/ X300.

I'd purchased a Comp Tac CTAC for use with the Wilson until my Versamax II arrives. Problem is that the damn thing flips the safety off every time I draw it from the holster. So, I had to dust off the Galco.

Good times. Every bit as easy to CCW a 1911 as it is to CCW a G19 or G34, IMHO.

Springfield Armory 1911 Loaded model.

Carried in Milt Sparks VMII holster.

Really one of the best carry rigs out there IMHO.  Easy to conceal and very comfortable.  In fact, it's usually my summer carry setup.

I also alternate between the Kimber and my Glock 17

Eh, you have enough pics so far.

I switch out between

Kimber CDP II
SA 5" lightwieght bi-tone

One of them is one me always.

Workin' on making it so.  

Using liberal terms;

I just feel safer with a 1911.  It feels more comfortable.  

Plus if it worked for the U.S. government for 90ish years, and it's back in service again... it's good enough for me to use to stop bad people if need be.

Kimber Compact CDP is my everyday carry gun, in a Sparks VM2 holster on a Beltman Elephant belt. Sweet lightweight set up!

How do you like the Dawson Rail system?   Do you have any pics with the light attached?

I am currently carrying a J-Frame 357/38 but I am looking to change to a full size 1911 as soon as I get a decent holster.

My wife carries a Springfield EMP in 9MM as her CCW.

A couple, actually... depending on what I'm wearing.

My Every Day Carry


If I'm getting dressed up...


Oh, and BadSVT....

'Love that pic!  It's always great to see 1911's that have truly been loved and not suck in a cold, dark safe somewhere.
