Default Need a IWB for 1911

I'll be able to get my CCL soon, so I need a good IWB holster for my gun. My gun is a full sized 1911, so I need the holster to support the weight of the gun well (will also get a really good belt), and make it easier to conceal. Any suggestions?

I've hear these are nice. Anyone use them?

texaswoodworker, If you go for any type of IWB holster for your 1911 I have a couple tips. Make sure you can adjust the cant of the holster. Strongly consider getting the "J" hooks instead of the spring clips.

I have the KingTuk for my 1911 and I find it very comfortable.

The King Tuk is a very nice holster, I bought one for my son and he loves it. I have carried for many years, and quit comfortably, in a holster made by Winthrop. The Winthrop holster has held up very well and as I remember, it was very moderately priced.

Something like the KingTuck is nice if you want to carry under a tucked shirt but if you go 'untucked' like me there are many other options. My personal favorite is the "Summer Special" style holster. It's a leather, rough out IWB holster, usually with a pair of belt straps.

The original was created by Mitch Rosen but his holsters are expensive and there's often a waiting list. There are however many other quality holster makers selling similar holsters these days.

I have a White Hat Holster IWB. Adjustable cant. Carry a 1911 series 70, shirt out. Comfortable and no printing.

If nothing else, compare their prices to that of Crossbreed, especially if you want horsehide.

I carry my SR1911 in a N82 pro tactical holster. That's the only holster I'll buy for IWB. I have one for my G35 too. They are sooooo comfortable.
