When my 1911 gets back from Fusion Firearms, I will carry that instead of my Glock.
07/02 FFL/SOT since 2006
Probably the only home based FFL that doesn't do transfers.

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.
Tubby I have a bobtail commander that's schweet.

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.

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.

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.
