    I have a Galco Ultra deep cover(pictured) that I use to run for my Kimber Ultra mostly but it required thinner belts. My two gun belts by Comptac are 1.5" and with them and the MTAC also pictured below I comfortably carry my Fullsize Steel 39oz Stainless II or my Ultra Carry II 25oz when empty. I use to CC the Ultra mostly, but with a good gun belt and the MTAC I really take either pistol, pending mood. The MTAC also gives you the option to change the Kydex Shell if you get another pistol.

    I'm carrying a 5" 1911 at present.

    I have always preferred a bovine or equine product holster until recently. I'm currently in the process of testing out a Blad Tech IWB Holster. So far so good, and I give it high marks if one desires a Kydex holster. If not, then I like various IWB holsters from my short list of recommended leather benders. I tend to carry the same gun for at least a year. That includes the nine months of summer that I have to suffer from, and have found that the IWB Holsters tend to work better for me at keeping the gun concealed.

    I will be testing an RCS IWB Holster next, but that is a modular holster and can be used OWB or IWB depending upon the belt attatchment. If I go back to leather it will be one of the IWB's from one of these makers:

    (In no particular order)

    Milt Sparks
    Kramer
    Mitch Rosen
    Matt del Fatti

    The important thing to remember with the 1911, or any other full size gun, is to use a good belt too.

    While not completely "full size" my Commander is just 3/4'' of barrel away and the barrel isn't the hardest part to conceal.

    I'm anal about concealment / not printing. If I'm carrying strong side IWB, I carry at about 3:00 with a generous forward kant. The Commander was comfortably carried and very concealed using a Blade-Tech UCH. I did modify the UCH by cutting off the sweat guard, and cutting off the bottom of the holster so that the barrel is sticking out, I also applied an adhesive to keep the holster set in the desired position (it was adjustable) after I got it just the way I wanted it. On my first carry session I was pleased, I packed the Commander for several hours without discomfort and my picky concealment requirement was met too (I should be able to lean / bend forward as if getting something out of a shopping cart without printing).

    The Commander is in the modified UCH at top of photo.

    Other concealment methods are a Mitch Rosen ARG for my Kimber Compact CDP, on right of pic. This holster would likely work with a larger 1911 too.

    Kimber Ultra Carry II rides in either a FIST Kydex clip on "appendix" IWB or a Smartcarry for times when clothing won't allow for a bigger 1911 pistol.
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    I carry mine in a galco n3 IWB. It seems galco holsters take some effort to break them in. The price isn't bad if you shop around.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    well since this thread was brought up again... I added a Galco miami classic holster. It works very well for winter carry.

    I use a Blade Tech IWB holster almost everyday. Sometimes I will use a Serpa belt holster(paddle) for times when I'm wearing a cover garment like a jacket. But usually it's tucked away in my IWB under a shirt. Even in summer under a t-shirt and shorts. I find pants and shirts one size larger then normal allow me to carry easily IWB. That oft quoted saying about CC being a lifestyle is true!

    My full-sized 1911 with a OWB holster is my “cold weather” gun. I can conceal it perfectly with a light sweater. I can also use a XXL t-shirt and shorts with no issues at all, I just make sure the shirt length covers the gun.

    I use a fist OWB holster
