    EDITED TO ADD: Nice looking dog too. I grew up with a GSD, sister has one now.
    What is the difference with a gun belt compared to a regular belt? Heavier leather I'm assuming?

    Thanks on the doggie. We have a corgie who is the "bark" and he is the GSD is the "bite" (really, he's a stinkin woose but if someone messed with the lady of the house, who knows what he's capeable of).

    A gun belt is THICK, which prevents sagging with the added weight of a gun/extra magazine, etc. They take the weight off & hold up your rig much better. My BeltMan is almost 1/4" thick! It is stiff as a board. A cheap alternative is a Wilderness Instructors belt. I have the 5 stitch model, 1 1/2" width.

    Yes Split Decision, I too have this for my HK USP/c, P2000, and P2000sk. All three can be used for this holster.

    I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a tuckable holster.

    CCO size 1911

    Pictures show a Sig Revolution Compact 1911 in a Brommeland MaxCon V from Coal Creek Armory (a very nice holster). The belt is from Comp-Tac, a very thick, very heavy 1-1/2" belt.

    The Sig compact is a 4.25" barrel with an Officers length grip, just like the Colt CCO. I like it a lot; the only thing that worries me is the very sharp angle at the top of the backstrap/mainspring housing. The 1911 just seems like it is made to catch your shirt every time you stand up. Overall the rig is thin, stable, and comfortable; perfect in every way except for the sharp edges.

    I took the picture with a full-length Wilson mag (with an Officers base plate) to show the difference between the Officers length grip and the full size grip. After trying this, I wonder if the Bobtail isn't a better option for all around CCW. In a holster with a lot of cant, it may stick up higher, but it doesn't project to the rear as much as I thought. The rounded off main spring housing is probably less likely to catch your shirt when you stand up. Carrying the Officers gun with a full length mag seems to actually help this a little.

    I read a lot of posts from people that seem to think a Sig is harder to find holsters for because of the Sig slide profile. If my memory is correct, there is no difference in the overall width of the Sig slide vs other 1911 slides. I know I had no trouble using the Sig in four different 1911 holsters.

    For Summer carry, the Brommeland holster is reasonably comfortable without a t-shirt under it.

    I can only carry on my property and unloaded, but I can have ammo on me, so two mags of JHP ready to go, better than nothing.

    Gould and Goodrich IWB with a Norinco 1911 Commander
    A no name belt that is very thick and stiff, cost $5
    Italian made mag holder bought at Shot

    I took the picture myself hence the odd angle.

    Normally I let the shirt hang over it, but that would have made a boring picture.

    What's legal and what you can phsyically do are two different things. Don't let a piece of paper dictate how your operate.

    Pictures of me carrying concealed would not reveal a thing to you.
    Isn't that the point??

    I'm going to have to research the law a little to see if the way I've been carrying (clipped inside front pocket just like everyone else) is legal.

    Any thoughts?

    I'm in GA but we have discussed this in depth at work and talked to several LEO's about it. According to them you can carry any length, the differance in length comes in to play if you do an illegal activity. Over 3 inches the crime is more strict. And it's not just a crime involving the knife, which kinda confuses me. But we did talk to LEO and not a lawyer, they may say differently.
