I carry a shield 9 left hand with crossbreeds iwb at 7-8 o'clock. Sometimes leather owb.

Trying to determine best way to carry 1911. Uses a serpa for a quick minute, however noticed it quickly wore the blue off the upper portion of my slide.

My man purse if you will. Works for me. And right now like usual when I'm working around the house I have a Glock 19 in a Blackhawk CQC Serpa holster.
Better than a fanny pack, though barely! Lol

I'm new at CC. Do all of you carry with one in the chamber?

Condition 1 is the only way to CC. Both my main and back-up are always at Condition 1. I'll switch out my magazines monthly and will drop the mag, unload and work the slide a few times every few days and then back to condition 1.

How well does that work? Does it cause any discomfort? What is draw-time like?

I always carry with 1 in the chamber. In most situation you probably won't have time to rack the slide to chamber a round.

Since your still gun shopping I'll go ahead and weight in. Over the last 17 years of EDC "Every Day Carry", I've packed huge guns and tiny guns, wheel guns and semi autos, guns geared for accuracy and some... not so much.

What I've figured out is that if were talking "concealment"... nothing trumps a "thin" gun so the first "dimension" is a gun under 1" Wide.

The second factor is the height of gun from the bottom of the mag to the top of the slide. Anything 5" or taller tend to print "badly" when worn strong side. 4" to 4.5" compacts are really nice at eliminating this "printing" and many come with extended back up mags... so even through your accepting a 5 to 7 round gun in order to attain these dimensions, you have the option of "higher" capacity b.u.m.'s

I know the "new guy" always "thinks" he needs a 17 round G 17 and 5 back up mags because the day after he get's his permit will be the day he stumbles into an "active shooter" on a rampage and if this is you... don't feel bad... we've all aquired some "really nice" range guns this way.

Any way, that's my .02 cents... Good Luck and be safe.

Tack

I prefer a shoulder holster in winter and IWB at the small of my back in summer remember how you dress everyday is a very important part of how you carry
