Other than a shoulder holster how are you gonna carry it. I own lots of 1911s but only carry the small ones. Easier to conceal, more comfortable, holsters readily available, what's not to like. Come in .40, .45, and 9mm. I'm 5" 7" tall and the 3" ones conceal way better for me so that is what I carry.
