I carry a lightweight champion 1911 in a cross breed type holster on a good strong belt. I can carry it all day long. I am so used to carrying it that it feels strange not having it on. The holster distributes the weight nicely.

A good holster makes all the difference.

That looks insanely uncomfortable. It is wider than my hind end.

It is pretty big but it makes the pistol disappear and is so comfy that I forget it's there.

The additional thickness is hardly noticable.
The actual laser housing add's bulk on the clean side, but acceptable.

I leave the switch in the on position at all times, but seldom use the laser sight.
The laser can be activated with an off-trigger grip.

I have used it to scan the pond and chicken yard when I think I hear predators.
(I have 220 lumens in the other hand).

Heck, I'll even admit to liking the digital camo print.

I carry a TCP738 (same size and weight as LCP) in an Uncle George's wallet holster in rear pocket of my jeans and it is totally concealed and looks just like a wallet. The only downside is that I have found that Wranglers are the only brand jeans that have big enough hip pockets. Go to the webside and look at his videos and you can see the holster in action and even see the exact jeans he's wearing. They're definitely available at Walmart. I carry all day, every day. This same holster can be used in front pocket of "docker-type" slacks, especially if with front pleats. Works perfect. If you can't find the website, private message me and I'll give it to you.
