So here's the deal. Soon as my tax refund hits my bank account I'm ordering a 1911. I'm planning on a GI model, kinda fond of the old-school, bare bones look. I'm giving some very serious thought to ordering a Raven Concealment holster after having looked at one a friend picked up. I'm not thrilled about waiting four months but they have them listed for the 1911 in their quick ship products. So here are my questions:
I'm a lefty, and that lilely means ambi safety. I can manipulate the safety with my index finger easily on the range but I have my doubts about doing it under pressure. Would it be easy to mold the body shield to fit the safety (it won't be if I get the quick ship) or would I just be better off getting it with the MD cut?
If down the road I decide to pick up a compact model, will the holster provide proper retention for it or would I need to get a second holster for it?
