    The McDaniel II w/ body shield is the closest I've seen to what I want. The crossbreed super tuck has an enlarged body shield. If I could get the McDaniel (or something like it) with the enlarged body shield, I'd go for it! Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Keep the beaver tail. I carry cocked & locked.
    Can you adjust the cant on this holster to maybe 15 degrees?

    I also use the VM-II with my Commander sized 1911 and I too have "dunlops" disease!

    Something else to consider might be the position you wear it in. 4:00-4:30 might help avoid the love handles. You might also check out gun-works.com. They have a very well made IWB holster which has both a large sweat shield and adjustable cant. They can deliver it to you in about a week.

Look around and you should be able to find one.....

    Thanks! This project will stretch into Thanksgiving. The weather is breaking and I'll be going back to OWB for a bit. After hunting (4-legged critters) season, I'll get back to getting a good IWB with a skin guard large enough to cover the hammer and the beavertail. Great suggestions and feedback from everyone. A hearty THANKS to everyone!
