Default 1911 carry

I have a full size 1911 that I want to carry but I have yet to find a holster that is comfortable yet effectively aids in the concealment process. Any ideas?

Raven Concealment makes some nice kydex holsters that might work for you. Should check them out

I have a Desantis rig that works great with my 1911's For IWB I have a Gould 810 IWB rig that works great.

I carry in a DeSanits IWB, works fine, other than the beaver tail eating my side up. Will be buying a Galco King Tuk soon.

I would sure try carrying a 1911 for everyday carry in a cheap holster,before investing a lot of money in a better holster. Large handguns become very heavy and are not really going to feel good after a long day.

A good carry belt is a big part of the equation. I often carry my 1911. I have a no-name leather holster for it. Before I picked up a good carry belt I would have bruising on my hip by the end of the day. The belt made all the difference.

I agree with you here is my choice in a belt maker.

Very nice looking belts. I usually go for a belt with a reinforcement rib in it.
This is my personal favorite.

A good belt with a Don Hume slide might work. It does for me.
