I've got a Galco paddle, Blackhawk Serpa and a Crossbreed Super Tuck IWB. The Crossbreed conceals best and is the most comfortable. That said, both my 1911's are Colt, too heavy for EDC. MHO you understand.

I know this lady. It is a hoot to watch her "unload". And that last one is a full size Desert Eagle - I have handled it.
So there is someone who conceals a Desert Eagle!

I used a desantis IWB on my colt 1911. I'm a smaller guy and had no problem concealing it. Remember that the 1911 is itself a slim pistol. I've since began carrying a Springfield xdm9 3.8 with another desantis holster. While it does conceal, it is not as good as my colt.

Haha, it's very hard to make a Desert Eagle look small but there are some who could do it.

It's slimness is great since it doesn't print as much.

I have a desantis iwb for my sr1911 that is almost as comfortable as my crossbreed that I wear at 4:00.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
