    Welcome Aboard from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan! I lived in the Great Northwest for a number of years, beautiful area (and lots of wonderful micro-breweries!).

    As for your choice in sidearms, the 1911 platform is an excellent choice for every-day-carry (EDC). A proper holster and gun-belt combonation would suprise you (I believe) in greatly improving the distribution of weight and overall comfort of carrying your chosen pistol. Same with the Ruger as well. Look around at other thread topics here and read-up on what others here have asked and the answers/replies, apply them to your needs and what your thinking/looking for and you've got a base-line to work with. This is a great site with a really great bunch of contributers whose experience and knowledge can certinally help you with your 'new' endevor!

    Again, Welcome Aboard!
