I would like to know the various methods that are being used to carry and conceal a 1911 with a 5" barrel. I am particularly interested in hearing from people in the Southwest, where I live, since the climate limits the amount of clothing that can be worn.
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?
