    Felt like a warm loaf of bread...

    Went to the range over the weekend. Shot my 1911 OM (Officers Model) and also my Ruger P89. I was carrying my P89 in a IWB holster. After putting a 100 rounds through the P89 I reloaded the mag and re-holstered it.

    For the next 10 minutes or so it felt like a nice warm loaf of bread on my side. :)

    I know a lot people consider the P89 too big for carry but it works for me. I also carry a 1991 full size so the P89 is bit light lighter. I picked it up used for $180 it looks like heck but shoots great and not a single failure yet.

    I was working on the the first shot DA pull a lot (about 30 rounds) I think that maybe something that a lot of people don't practice a lot.

    Always a great feeling burning up some powder.
    Oh...I took the liberty of adding "Officers Model" after "OM" in your thread post as many newbie shooters will not know what a 1911 OM is.

    I had a P89 many moons ago, and yes it's a shooter. But it's like a Glock. It has a face that only a mother could love. But would I carry it/ It can be done alright, just got to get the combonation right. A shoulder holster,or a good OWB holster would IMHO be the better set up.

    I have a p91DC. It is heavy, however with C.T.A.C IWB, it conceals well. Because of its weight, I have to use a good belt to keep my pants up. I've been using an1.75 inch instructor belt with good results.

    i have a p89 9mm that was my first handgun and the one I passed my ccw class with. I have went to sell it or trade it off probably a half dozen times and it always comes home with me. I guess I am sentimental. I don't like the safety on it for carry, but a great range gun. The darn things just shoots well, accurate, and never a hiccup. You can give it to a novice shooter at the range and hot worry about the gun. That gun has introduced alot of people to handgunning, and I think I have decided to keep it around.

    DOC, I can not part from my P91DC either. It's just too confortable. I've also determined its concidered collectiable. Not too many were made in 40cal. from what I understand...
