    I currently carry a Wilson Combat XTac Elite Carry Comp in a 5Shot IBS with a Mean Gene belt. I don’t even notice it’s weight. It is a 4 inch with 1/2 inch single chamber comp. It fits in any government size holster.

    A good belt and a solid holster is key to FS 1911 carry.

    I like TTGunleather rigs for my 1911 carry followed closely by Milt Sparks.

    I often carry my Springfield pro on weekends. Otherwise I carry a j frame. Unless you are carrying something super light and low drama like a j-frame I figure you might as well be carrying a full size gun that puts the biggest holes in the most consistent groups.

    Bravo Concealment Kydex and Aeres belt- comfortable carry of a 5" gun.

    Cheating with the gun- Alloy frame 9mm is 1/2 # lighter than steel frame. (:

    Not now, but someday. I'm just getting back into 1911's after a 30 year hiatus. Getting older makes me appreciate the finer firearms in life. I'm reaching the point where I'm just not going to buy anymore plastic guns.

    I still live in suburbia as the wife and I still work a lot. We live in a part of the country where it never really gets cold enough to wear thick clothing that will hide a 1911. So... My P-C Shield 9, or my Scandium/Titanium J-frame alternate most of the duty.

    When I retire and we move to the hills, then yes, I'll be carrying the Wilson 1911 that I get for retirement, or one of the other ones I pick up over the next 10 years.

    Keeping it real with the old the school approach. Good for you.

    I did for a couple of years. The 5 inch barrel tore holes in my pants when carrying IWB and sitting. I always felt it there. I never forgot I was carrying. The hammer would dig into my belly fat unless I had iwb holsters with full sweat shíelds. I thought that was normal until I got a subcompact.
