    How do you carry 1911's

    I just got me a new Taurus PT1911 that will become a carry piece after I do all my checks through it for reliability... So what kind of Holsters do you all use for your 1911's

    I usually carry my Kimber ProCarryII(4" barrel) in a Wild Bill "No Such Agency" holster usually around 4-430 position. To be honest I love it. I don't like the IWB's with the belt loops that go up and around your belt. This one molds quite well to my body and the small metal clip is offset from the actual holster so it doesn't make it stick out any further.

    Rock Island 1911 GI Model in a Galco OWB at 4:00-4:30 always Condition 1.

    Just picked up a SA Micro Compact Fully Loaded in .45 acp last Friday and have not found a holster yet. It came with an ankle holster but it is very uncomfortable. I am probably going to go with an IWB at 6:00.

    I carry my Para Ord CCW in a Ross leather IWB holster at about 4:00. Sometimes I carry it in a Galco OWB rig as well.
