    Not to be a pain but isn't thumb break/restraint and concealed carry mutually exclusive in a holster description?

    You're absolutely right

    Not necessarily... I'm looking for something like this Commerce Storefront B2C for corporate/executive security jobs, but, as I said, the one I bought keeps knocking my 1911 safe into the "off/fire" position. I'd rather not buy a dozen until I find one that works so I thought I'd see if anyone has had any experience with anything like this.

    Thanks again.

    I carried a 1911 in a Bianchi 7L thumb brake holster for 0ver 25 years and never had the thumb safety disengage. I'm now using a Bianchi X15 with no problems. Many departments are now going with the Blackhawk Serpa holster as it provides the best security and the rigid polymer construction doesn't let the holster side rub the thumb safety like a nylon or leather holster might. My guns have a stock thumb safety - if you have an extended safety - that could be part of your problem.

    Thanks!

    Sorry it too me so long to respond. My younger brother passed away from pancreatic cancer just after I posted this question and things have been real messed up since. He has a wife and 2 little kids I'm trying to help take care of. Anyway thanks... I actually did go with the Blackhawk Serpa before I even saw your response. Been happy with it so far. The hard plastic paddle is a little tough on my bony ass/hips sometimes like when sitting in the car, but I love the quick access and positive locking action. Thanks again!
