    I trust my Kimber TLE Custom II.

    I dont carry it yet. It is really to big on me to hide.
    I have a shoulder holster from Galco that a friend gave to me.
    It is for a large framed auto but not the 1911 exactly. I am worried that it flips the safety off when I mess with it at all. I know don't mess with it!

    But anyways it looks like a football on me, but I am new to CC so I might just need to work on my CCskills.

    I trust all of my 1911's, wonder why it is that the guys that don't trust them did not post.

    Over the years I have owned many Colt Commanders, CCO's and Officers and one Detonics. Some with the shorter barrel are more effected by not holding it tight (limp wristing).
    What I found is that the ones that are 100% reliable from the start will always be 100% reliable. I have had 1911's that were not reliable and some that were 100% reliable. That seems to be true with most guns though I have found that Sigs and Glocks just always work and I never had one that was not 100% reliable.
    I have had S&W revolvers that did not always function too.

    +1. I have 2 1911's and like them, but I just like XD's better. I have carried my 1911's and would not have a problem carrying them again, but the XD just serves my purposes better.

    I waffled back and forth for a few years when I first started carrying but one day finally decided on the 1911 and never went back.

    Depending on clothing I alternate between a SA Micro Mil-Spec and a Kimber Pro-Carry II.

    Like others have said the wife won't let me wear it to bed.

    Be Safe,

    i just recently bought a 1911, a Taurus, to be exact. my father used a 1911 when he was in the service, he taught me how to shoot one, and maintain it, and i trust them. they're like any other tool: treat them right, and they'll return the favor.

    I trust 'em just fine. I don't carry one because all mine are full size and just more than I like to tote around on a daily basis. I have carried one, but went to lighter smaller stuff. I carry a revolver mostly, but also mid sized DA/SA autos from time to time.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    My Kimber Ultra CDP is my EDC, except on my Harley...then it's my Glock-36...both are very dependable.

    Stay armed...with something that has .45 in it...stay safe!

    My favorite carry 1911 is my Colt Officers ACP in blue finish. It goes bang every time. In fact, all my 1911's (pictured) are 100% reliable with factory defensive ammo. Every one of them.

    I don't carry my PT 1911 yet, but as soon as I get my Crossbreed holster it will be one of my carry guns.

    It's called SIG sauer... that or a smith and wesson revolver is what I choose to trust my life with. I personally don't trust glocks, 1911s or anything with grip safties, trigger safties, or any particular safties that I think is redundant and impractical.
