Nothing wrong with the CBST for the 1911 too.
This is a discussion on Just bought my first and 2nd handgun within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; It was a bright sunny afternoon in Durham NC back in April when I qualified for my concealed carry permit with a VERY small Kel-Tec ...
It was a bright sunny afternoon in Durham NC back in April when I qualified for my concealed carry permit with a VERY small Kel-Tec PF9, small 12.7 oz 9mm...I remember it all so clearly now as my hands were brutally sore and beat up from the snappy recoil that the brand new fresh out of the box kel-tec offered. I was honored at first I got to put the first round down range...I was hurt afterwards my hands and arms were sore!
Fast forward to today...Another bright sunny afternoon in Durham NC and I was between a FNX 9mm and a SA XD 9mm. I kept looking and looking and talked with Budsgunshop and called all the LG's and after all that I bought it.
I bought 2 actually a FNX 9mm and a 1911 RIA 1911A1 in 9mm
My thought was I will only have to buy 9mm ammo, which is a good thing for me. The wifey doesn't know that I bought anything yet :) It seems as though bright sunny afternoons on my day's off seem to make me want to buy handguns or their related items!
The FNX 9mm will be my CCW, I plan on using it in a crossbreed supertuck holster for the FNP (which I heard it will fit). The RIA 1911 I'm not sure if I would conceal carry that monster or try for the out on the hip variety. The RIA 1911 was not my first choice, however it was one of the few 1911's that were in 9mm that was all black with the wood grips, in my price range. Any thoughts on concealing the 1911 or hip carry for that thing? What about the FNX 9, any thoughts on it in general and concealing it?
I can't wait for my weapons to get here, it will be range time hopefully this weekend.
I don't carry a gun because I'm angry.
I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating
myself for failing to be prepared.

Better start planning to expand your secure storage space because it's obvious you are hooked. Congratulations on the new guns.

Good luck with your purchaces. take the wife out to dinner and the range, in that order.
The secret is to buy guns that look similar. I have 3 being delivered this week and I don't think the little lady would recognize them as more than just 1.

First - the FNX 9mm. I don't own one but have read only good things about it. Just learn to shoot it well. I did have an FNP 40 and it concealed fairly well. The RIA 1911 in 9mm is a bit bigger. I'm a Galco pancake holster fan myself. I have quite a few of their holsters. Their Concealable holster carries my Colt 1911 pretty well. The belt is the key. Get a good belt. Another option for your 1911 if it strikes your fancy is a shoulder rig. Cabelas sells a holster made by Triple K that is offered in the 1911 size. I have one I use again with my Colt and it works fine for me. It's a good carry option in winter months when heavy vests or coats are in order. I like them because I drive alot. The price if I remember right is in the $70.00 range.
Hope this helped. Good shooting!

Now, remember, with those two different pistols, you'll need to be work doubly hard in your training, if you intend to alternate between the two for carry!

Congrats on the new guns! A 1911 is very easy to conceal IWB; just make sure that you get a good holster.
