After all of the wait,70 some odd days, my CCW permit has arrived. Now, I am sure you all can suggest some good holster for a 1911 A1 SA GI .45 model. Valid in 22 states now I believe, oh, how much trouble is it to take a firearm on a trip? I will be flying to Florida for 2week buisness trip next month and I dont want to leave home without it. Thanks again for your help, and are Kahr PM9s any good for a mouse gun? I have heard good and bad with it.

Congrats.

I really like my Galco Summer Comfort leather IWB strongside. Carries and conceals well even under just an untucked polo shirt.

Have you ever used a jackass rig? are they confortable? all of my pants have a inch or 2 of slack, lots of thought into this.

+1 on the Milt Sparks Versa-Max II, I got mine the other day and I love it. Get horse hide! Great holster!

Kahr PM9 is an excellent mousegun. Just make sure you break it in. Kahr recommends 200 (?) rounds of ball to break in, put 600 or more through it. It is really tight NIB.

Got a holster from Eric at the above link, it is outstanding and comfortable, mine is the COM3 design.

Good finish, high quality leather, great stitching, comfortable design.

I was looking at them, some people its a KB gun, but I like the PM40 they have now. dunno yet for the mouse gun I want. Im checking into the holsters, thanks for the sites. I feel it best to ask from people who carry, then waste money on some hype up bs.

An inch or 2 of slack should be plenty for an IWB holster. My pants aren't loose and I can fit one just fine.

I don't like the idea of a shoulder holster so I have never used one for concealed carry. I had a crappy nylon shoulder holster several years ago that I used for walking around in the woods and I did not like it at all.

Im getting a free jackass rig from a friend kaliforcommia, so I was wondering how they felt. where is the best place to put the IWB, im right handed. front, back, side? just trying to get info together, gotta break my conceled cherry after I pick up my permit tomorrow.

Around 3:30 - 4:00 strong side (right side for you) is what is considered to be the best location for most shooters. However, ultimately it is entirely up to you and what is the most comfortable FOR YOU. Best thing is to spend awhile moving the holster around... sitting, kneeling, bending over... just doing normal everyday things to get an idea of how the holster will feel when you are out and about.

The best quote I have heard recently about concealed carry is that "Carrying a gun should be comforting, not comfortable". Not sure who said it but it is dead on.

Do you wear a wife beater or under shirt? oh, is this the holster?

That's it.

I wear an A-shirt ("wife beater") under my over shirt because it is cooler and less restrictive than a normal undershirt.

I wear either a T shirt or a wife beater under my covering garment.
