I carry a 4.25" barrel 1911 most of the time.

When I want to make sure I am "well heeled", I bring my full size 5" with two fulls mags and feel completely at ease.

Bottom line?

I can assess a target and hit it well beyond the targets presented to me at the Valhalla Training Center, which were well in the 10-13 YARD range.

I have a little Dan Wesson .357 with a 6" barrel that works pretty well. It's not what you call concealed or anything. I normally list to the left but this thing balances me out a bit.

On the few occasions I needed to go heavy, but just a tad lighter than requiring a rifle, I have carried the wolf IWB.



Although the conditions requiring this much fire-power are rare (a night pick-up of friends at the Miami airport or the first meeting of a "new" date that has come collecting my daughter) the carrying of Fenrir is comfortable in the X-Breed Super Tuck but because of the barrel length, not real practical. (See: Thigh Rig above) This comfort speaks more to the holster than the gun.

Cane, man. I really need to get a 460!

That's the only barrel length of 1911 I don't have. Its on my list but right now I am saving up for a Wilson Combat Hunter in 460.

If a 4" 1911 is considered large then count me in. It goes everywhere I do.
