    You talking about a thigh rig?

    Why would you want to put a compact 1911 in an open carry holster? The whole purpose of the compact is concealment.

    You talking about an ankle holster?

    Even as a compact, any 1911 would be a bit hefty for an ankle rig.

    Ahh, that makes more sense.

    Regarding the leg holster, I assume you mean a tactical thigh holster with which I have no experience. I'd suggest Googling Black Hawk or any of the other Tactical gear suppliers for this.

    On the belt holster, if it's for out door "in the woods" use, I'd suggest going with a cross draw rig. The full holster type that completely covers the muzzle and at a minimum has a very secure thumb break.

    I personally carry a 3" S&W Model 629 .44 Mag while deer hunting in Eastern WA State, mainly because I choose to hunt deer with a single shot rifle and don't like the idea of going anywhere with JUST a single shot. Hell, I won't go to the mall with just a single shot but I digress.

    I like the cross draw belt rig because it allows me to carry a fanny pack, back pack, or pack board without impeding my access to the sidearm.

    A strong side holster would be very tough to get to while carrying any sort of pack.

    Crossdraw holster....bad for so-called "tacticool operations"....but for an outdoor holster...they are hard to beat. I carry my 5" Model 57 .41 Mag in a crossdraw rig when I am hunting or riding my horse. Easy to pack and get to if you need it.
