Default I Back Into 1911s Again

Howdy Ya'll.

I once owned an Auto Ordinance 1911-A1(reproduction GI) .45 ACP.

I sold it and got into plastic guns, gave away my Glock 30 .45 ACP and traded in my Glock 29 10MM.

I now have a Duo-Tone Taurus PT-1911 with an Alloy frame on layaway at the local gun shop.

I want to get a CCW license soon.

I plan to carry this pistol plus an 2" snubby EAA Windicator .357 Magnum/.38 Special(BUG).

Anybody using the Sonny Crocket shoulder Holster rig with their 1911?

Any other gun leather, mag pouches, or magazine makers Ya'll want to recommend?

Looking forward to shooting .45 ACP again.

For mags, you'll want to stay with known performers like Tripps & Wilsons. I use Chip McCormicks as range mags though...

I don't like the idea of the muzzle covering anything behind me. I'm also not very wide front to back, so I like a vertical holster.

Here's one from Triple K. It's very good quality and very reasonably priced.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
