    I carry my 5 inchers and Commanders cocked and locked (The only sensible way to carry a 1911) in a Brommeland ( www.brommelandgunleather.com ) Iwb holster with a good belt. I have never been aware of any discernable difference in the draw. They all carry very comfortably. Usually I hide them with an open, button up shirt, at 3:30 to 4:30.

    Back in my younger years I used to carry a 1911.

    I too am in the southwest, and know of the clothing "issues". IWB of good quality with a good quality belt always did the trick for me.

    Good quality goes hand in hand with "exspensive" but I'm worth it. I've used Ted Blocker, Mitch Rosen and various other "Big Name" Holster Makers. There are a few in the forum.

    Right now I'm waiting on a Garrity for an N-Frame 4" Revolver that is my EDC.

    For those who are carrying it IWB:

    1) Are you carrying it "cocked and locked"?
    2) Did you get stainless or blued?
    3) Is it awkward drawing a 5" as opposed to a 4" from the waist?
    I carry my Kimber full size 1911 in a CTAC IWB holster.

    1. Yes
    2. Blued
    3. No

    As long as you have a good belt to provide a solid, stable, platform for the holster and gun there is no problem with carrying, concealing, or drawing a 5" 1911

    On the rare time I carry a steel pistol my 1911 is cocked and locked.
