    How Do you CC your 1911?

    I'm close to purchasing a Taurus PT1911 Alum frame .45.
    Weight is 32 oz empty. I have CC a compact .45 RIA but never a full
    size. I am average build and need suggestions on how to pull this off
    as a CCW. It will be my truck gun but carried some daily.

    When I occasionally carried a full-sized 1911 I carried it in a Bianchi X-15 shoulder holster underneath a business suit coat. The suits were mostly black or dark in color and no one had a clue it was there.

    If I ever take up toting a 1911 again I'll acquire an IWB holster.

    90% of the time in a crossbreed supertuck at 4 o'clock. Occasionaly in a smart carry.

    i like the galco IWB holsters that Kimber has on their website. they work well, but are a little pricey.

    Thats the way I went with my Kimber. Galco makes great IWB holsters.

    One of the following: Brommeland Max-Con V, Rosen ARG, Bianchi Askins Avenger or Galco Miami Classic shoulder rig. I'm 5'7" and 162 lbs., and concealment of a full-size 1911 is no problem with any of these with proper clothing. I can carry one under an untucked t-shirt, sweater or sweatshirt with the Brommeland or the ARG.

    I usually carry a Para P-14 (double stack 5" 1911) and have several ways....

    1} Galco Sky-Op tuckable IWB
    2} Galco Jackass shoulder holster
    3} 3 slot Pancake, I like the set up for butt canted forward.

    Milt Sparks Versa Max II (VMII), probably the best holster I've ever owned. Very comfortable and well made, only down side is the 6 month wait, but it's worth it in my opinion.

    My Kimbers rode in one of these... http://www.fist-inc.com/holsters/holster/1A.htm

    Now my Kimbers sit in the safe and watch the Glock go for rides.

    I have a Glock 19 that i carry but just got to have another 1911,it would'nt be right not to!
    Would a 2 belt clip or strap holster be a better choice for a full size 1911? I love stoner holsters , leather IWB bodyshield and 1 clip for my glock and it's nice. Alot of people swear by crossbreed.

    Crossbreed Supertuck. I can carry it with just a regular t-shirt and nobody notices.

    When I carried a 1911 it was in a Ted Blocker IWB holster with thumb break.
