    1. STAY AWAY FROM THUMB-BREAKS. Unless it's custom fit to your gun, the thumb-break can (and will) sweep the thumb safety off with alarming regularity. Most big makers don't make them for cocked and locked carry anymore.

    2. The most comfy OWB I've used is an el-cheapo Fobus paddle. Say what you will, but it's comfy none the less.

    3. Kramer MSP paddle is a good option. You don't need as much belt which translates (for me anyway) to more all-day comfort. Lots of paddle holsters suck, but the MSP isn't one of them.

    I've gotta say though that my TT Gunleather IWB with my 4.25" 1911 is very, very comfortable and I didn't have to take a sub-prime mortgage out or wait 7 years to get it.
    The keys to winning a gunfight are first to bring a gun and secondly to take your time, quickly.

    Always remember that if your opponent is within range, so are you.

    POWER TO THE MEPEOPLE!!!

    I enjoy making holsters for 1911's because of the inherent firearm lines....same with Sigs and the M&P's are getting there....

    here are some pics of a holster I did for a forum member:
