    I do

    I carry a Colt 1991 Stainless. Get a good holster and a good belt and commit to carrying it. I use a Brommeland holster, a belt made custom locally, and a Fist mag carrier.

    Do you mean like a Kimber Ultra Carry II, 3" 1911?

    Or are you asking, other than 1911's?
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    Lots of people do. An IWB holster and a decent cover garment and nobody can tell.

    I recommend that you use the feature. There's much to read on this topic.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Quoted for emphasis. I have, and occationally do carry my 1911. Just as easily as my Glock.

    Full size 1911 carry not a problem. For OWB pay particular attention to getting a high quality carry rig and don't forget the good stiff gun belt.
    It helps if the holster that you choose has some forward cant.
    I won't get into what exact holster you should buy since there are so many great makers putting out super high quality daily carry rigs.

    I carry a Commander sized 1911... 3/4" more wouldn't make any difference. It's all in the holster!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!
