I'm a scrawny 6'1" 185 and I can hide my 1911 in shorts and a t shirt.....to the OP, cocked and locked. Condition 1 is the only way to carry any weapon.

I'm three pounds less and an inch shorter. I might be the scrawny(er) kid brother

I understand what you are saying. But I just can not carry inside the waist band. I am 6' 2" 210. I usually wear a vest and carry my 1911 in a paddle holster. Some guys can carry IWB. Some can not. I agree about condition 1. I feel that if I had to fight with one hand I would not be able to rack the slide. There fore...Click, Bang! The only way to go!

LOL. Patience brother, patience. It is well worth the wait. I waited a little over a year.

Thanks for referring to yourself as skrawny. It makes me feel better about being 6'01" and 230 lbs.
