    Hi all - my first post here!

    I got my Texas CHL about 3 months ago. I carry the following, depending on my mood and what clothes I\'m wearing that day:

    SIG 228 9mm w/nightsites
    SIG 225 9mm w/nightsites
    S&W 908 9mm

    I typically carry using an Uncle Mikes IWB holster in front, or at the 4 o\'clock if I\'m able to wear a jacket.

    My favorite is my Nighthawk Enforcer II. If you can afford one I highly recomend it. Guarantee of 1in at 25 feet is very true even for this old shaky guy. Those old timers from Wilson build one hell of a gun.

    Backup carry is a S&W model 360 ultralite snub with Crimson Trace grips in case I miss.

    My other favorite is a S&W 629 3\" barrel with Crimson Trace. That\'s right a 44 mag right is the small of my back. You can feel it there but with the horizontal holster is dissapears.

    Sig .226 in .40 is too big and I don\'s have coat big enough for the AK or the SKS yet.;)

    Colt XSE L.W. Commander in a Wilson Lo.pro holster loaded with 230 gr. ball ammo and 2 Wilson 47D mags in a Wilson mag pouch on the side. I also carry a Springer XD9 Service model and a Ruger P97DC , both in Don Hume belt slides, on occasion( Depending on weather and circumstance).Mostly the Colt, though. Will soon be investing in a Kahr PM9 for pocket carry as a bug or when other carry options are not appropriate. Have a Safe and Merry Christmas, Lazyace1975.

    There\'s quite a few 1911 carriers here. I carry a Kimber Custom TLE II or a Kimber Eclipse Pro in a variety of holsters. I like that Blackhawk CQC, is it that easy to release the retention mechanism?

    Bumper, it is soo easy. I took a lil while to set it up to where I liked the retention force but the finger along the side technique is excellent for maintaining a safe pistol. Becomes second nature. The pressure required to release the pistol on a draw is very light in my mind but you can set it up to where you like. That is the beauty of this rig. Hope this helps. Big selling point is they are very inexpensive...

    Cool, as soon as the dust settles after Christmas I may order one. They are reasonably priced.

    I rotate between multiple firearms dependant on the situation.
    Kimber gold combat - cold weather and pickup driving.
    Kahr MK9 slighlty warmer weather and Motorcycle riding.
    S&W 36 when a wheel gun seems right.
    H&K USP 45c when I have the space (put on a lot of weight lately) or when driving the Porsche - Its a German thing.
    KelTec P32 - Always.

    Cooler weather a PT-945.

    Springfield Armory GI Mil Spec

    Had the choice of any 1911 up to $1000, went with this gun for the simplicity and cheap price, the other $600 is going into smithing and new parts while keeping the outside appearance of just a GI Mil Spec. Kinda like building a \"10 second sleeper\" in the drag racing world.
