    One thing about Desantis is that their stuff seems to be priced quite reasonably.

    I don't do it often and I haven't done it for about a year but the few times I've carried a 5" 1911 OWB was with a small of the back holster that put the barrel diagonally across my back.

    I would have no problem carrying a 5" if it weren't for the fact that I have a short torso and by the time all 5 inches of the barrel clear the holster if it's on my hip, my arm is so twisted and my hand is up in my armpit. It's uncomfortable and impractical.

    With the SOB at the angle I can draw quickly and not have to worry about going straight up but rather, around.

    I don't carry that way very much because 1) SOB is very uncomfortable for driving and sitting and 2) I have a 4" 1911 I can carry on my hip either OWB or IWB and that works just fine.

    It can be done though. JD does it every now and then.

    Ultra CDP II on the left, Desert Warrior (5" barrel) on the right.
    I use an HF2 for OWB (5" and 4" 1911)....

    This is a Matt Del Fatti; it works well but was not inexpensive. Regards, Richard
