    I carry in a simple leather IWB with a metal clip. It looks something like this, but has an open end to accommodate various lengths. On my full size 5" bbl 1911, the end of the barrel sticks out about 2 inches below the holster.

    I don't know who made mine because someone gave it to me (for my PT709 Slim). I never liked the Slim in it, but it works perfect for my 1911. Mine is made of thick leather and has a wide metal clip. It really carries the weight well.

    Crossdraw at 1030-1100.

    Great for riding, driving, sitting, etc.

    CC takes some practice, but it can be done. To better conceal away from the "cover shirt flap-up" I've been known to discreetly slide the holster (SERPA) to the 0900 position. I can still get at it easily, but it's more out of the way and MUCH less visible (important in FL, not so much here in KY).

    Maybe not for you, but perhaps worth a try. The seated accessibility alone is worth that much!

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    Eric at HBE Leatherworks did a great job on my OS PRO holster. I can also use my MTAC and tuck it in dress clothes! Both are great holsters.

    In colder weather (with a long(er) jacket), I carry my 4" 1911 in an OWB holster from LittleBearholsters.com. The 5" is carried in a Desantis Speed Scabbard. Both are at 4 o'clock. In warmer weather, I carry IWB and wear a 3x shirt, unbuttoned, over a t-shirt. No printing and easy access in any climate. I have a shoulder holster for winter carry too.

    I don't carry it too often, full size kimber 40+ oz empty, when I do it is in a Milt Sparks Axiom OWB concealed with vest I got from Diluth Trading. Easily concealed just a bit heavy after a while.

    That is a Para .45 LDA CCW. The holster is a Silent Thunder IWB.
