    XDM-40 (4.5 in) with a Blade-Tech IWB holster. There's no real model to it except that it's the IWB Model and it's IDPA (I think that's what it said) approved. Ran me about $60-65 for the holster, not the most comfortable IWB, but it works great.

    In the colder months I frequently carry either a Browning Hi-Power or SA XDm45 (4.5").

    But I go with a PF9 when the layers come off.

    I wouldn't call it "full-size" but I've been carrying my Kahr CW45 and liking it. It is certainly not a double-stack XDM, but there is never a time I don't know that I have it on.

    Something very comforting about a grip that extends below my pinkie!

    I carry a full size 1911, carry it all of the time, and carry it comfortably; All you need is good leather and a good belt, and to be a little flexible on your wardrobe.

    i do depending on what im doing. day to day going to the store shopping etc i carry my xdm compact simple because getting in and out of the truck or car the full length slide and grip of my 4.5 is a little pinchy and uncomfy. the compact just slightly shorter barrel is just enough to carry comfy. same with the grip.

    unfortunately i dont have a good iwb holster for my xdm's so ive been using the one they came with.

    I carry both a Colt 1911 and a Ruger G-100 .357 with a 6" barrel. The 1911 fits real well in the front pocket of my jeans and this is how I sometimes carry it when I am out in the middle of nowhere. I also have one of the old-style leather shoulder holsters I use.

    I dont IWB but i do dual carry colt 1911 gcs in a ghost force combat harness. Dual holstered shoulder harness i got a really good deal on a few years ago. So its very doable. If im not doing that i have a combat holster that sits across the small of my back...dont know who makes it though.

    I carry a Glock 22 IWB everyday at work in a home made Crossbreed style holster, in the winter I sometimes go with the Blackhawk CQC OWB but as an auto tech this gets snagged more often while working under the dash of a car. When we go out as a family this might not be the case as I have several guns in rotation for carry duty.
