    I use a Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro for my Dan Wesson CBOB. I carry IWB on the strong side with 2 spare mags on the weak side. I'm 5'9" and ~165lbs. This is concealable in shorts and a t-shirt. The holster is a little bit more than you'd pay elsewhere, but it has multiple ways to carry (IWB and OWB), will never collapse (there's a picture on the website of 10lbs of weight on the mouth without collapsing), and is totally sweat and water proof. It's also one of the most comfortable holsters I've ever seen.

    I too believe in lots of forward cant. I carry my Commander bobtail at 4-4:30 in a Comptac CTAC, but I have swapped out the leather bits for longer ones to raise the rear of the holster and lower the front. Resulting cant is about 35 degrees, while most holster makers don't seem to offer more than 15 or maybe 20. Really helps the butt print less. I believe heavy firearms carry better with a quality gunbelt too.

    One of my full size 1911's is my cooler weather carry guns. Mostly because in cooler weather I'm always wearing more clothing i.e. a sweater or jacket. My preferred method is a SOB made by Kirkpatrick out of Texas. Worn at the 4-5 oclock position, it's proven to be the perfect rig.

    I only carry a 5" 1911 in a shoulder holster. My Miami Classic gets the most use. I have a vertical Uncle Mike's that really should get more use. When I backpack or bike, I carry my 5" in a military style "Tanker" shoulder holster.

    I can carry a RIA compact (EDC) and a Metro Arms American Classic II full size in the same holster @ 2:00. Holster: UBG striker. I can carry all day and do all manner of things....with ease.

    Yes. I am sitting here with my Colt New Agent on as I type.

    I use a belt from AKJ Concealco that has a plastic stiffner inside two layers. It makes a big difference when you start carrying a large heavy gun. Only down side is my cell phone case won't clip onto it well becasue it's so thick. I've coupled this with an IWB holster from HBE called his COMIII. For me the full size 1911 would poke out to the rear abit and be uncomfortable in a car. I carry a 4" and a 3.5" compact. There are a lot of belts with plastic inserts you can buy. I have one with, one without the insert and would highly recommend it for the larger guns.

    I've also found that a bit more extreme cant on the holster helps to conceal the butt of the gun better. If the holster has more of a straight up cant, the butt will print quite a bit.

    I carried a full size years ago but ultimately when to a compact frame (officers) and find it far more comfortable and a LOT easier to conceal. I'm 5' 7" and weigh 160. Very slender.

    I also found that ultra slim grips makes a little difference too; not much, but a little.

    Until recently, I've been using a CBST. My favorite thing about it was the convenience of the spring clips. But I hated how loosely the gun fit in the kydex, which wears finishes down to bare steel in a matter of weeks, so I've gone back to leather.

    At the moment, I'm carrying in a IWB from AKJ Concealco, but I do not recommend this holster



    Their funny little front loop is incredibly flimsy, so it loses shape quickly and rotates around the belt until the top of the snap scrapes against the top of the slide with every draw. The holster also becomes loose quite fast. The gun falls right out of the holster if it is turned to any considerable angle.

    But based on very positive feedback, I'm planning on purchasing a UBG Striker. It seems to have my favorite parts of both of the above holsters, but without the drawbacks.

    I've been having the same problem with my MTAC, it's worn down the parkerized finish on the right hand side of my 1911, from the top of the slide down to the ejection port is a 1/4" wide strip of exposed steel. The kydex is also grabbed by the ejection port on the draw and has managed to chip off a very small bit of steel from the edge of the ejection port. I cannot wait for my leather OWB to get here sometime this week or next!

    I hope you're right! I"m about 4 months deep into the wait for mine! I also have a Galco Fletch for OWB I'm pretty happy with.
