    I always carried like most of the people i saw,between my right front pocket and rear pocket I noticed that the grip of my gun protruded out and when i sat down you could see it inside my tee shirt i moved my holster around for a while and found that if i carried right behind my front pocket...
  2. 1911 Carry
    I'm looking to transition to OWB 1911 magazine carriers for the sake of comfort and accessibility. I am looking for carriers that will keep the magazine as high and as tight to my body as possible. I suspect I will be more open to kydex designs than leather, but I'm open to all options. Can...

    Guys, Since the recent craziness, I've broken out several holsters and been carrying my standard government model 1911. I've used this time to try different holsters and get used to carrying. I carry mostly in a IWB concealed holster. Typically at the 4 o'clock position. Overall I've found the...

  6. 1911 Carry
    I’d like to hear what leather appendix (AIWB) carry holsters you like the most so I don’t need to amass a collection of hated/unused holsters. There are other threads on best holsters, but it’s hard to weed out what leather appendix holsters (make and model) are the favorites. The guns I want...

    I came upon this question on an application recently. Does anyone else see this as a baited question with no proper way to answer without telling a lie if you just posess a firearm. Do you possess or transport a firearm while engaged in For-Hire Transportation? [ ] Yes I do** [ ] No I do not

    ABSTRACT Background Over the last 30 years, public opinion and state level legislation regarding the concealed-carry of firearms have shifted dramatically. Previous studies of potential effects have yielded mixed results, making policy recommendations difficult. We investigated whether...

    The wife and I just got back from a vacation in Europe. Between the passport, iPhone, battery charger, sunglasses ... I'll just come out and say it: I carried all this around in a camera bag with shoulder strap. A man bag by any other name is, frankly, a man bag. Or maybe a "murse". At any...

    Like many, I’m almost as much of a junkie over gunleather as I am guns themselves! Here, then, is what I’d like to be the first of a review of sorts of some of my favorite pieces of “gun gear.” I’ve also published a companion piece to this over at WordPress, with details below. Over time...

  13. 1911 Carry
    What do you find is the most challenging component of concealed carry drawing/shooting? For me, the only challenge is clearing the shirt tail cleanly without any delay. Can still use more practice on this. Varies some with shirt fit, of course.

    Holsters for sale - we've got a slew of holsters for sale. Most are nearly new and either rarely or even never worn - the exceptions are noted. Greyed out font indicates that holster has been sold. All are right-handed. BUMMER - the forum will only let me include 8 images, so I've removed the...

    Be still, my heart, I've decided this will be my first 1911 over the 9mm Range Officer Compact because I just have to have the bobtail frame. I don't really care for the silver slide, ambi and the fancy trigger. I'll eventually swap those parts out for a black slide, single side safety and...

    5 Things to Check in Your Concealed Carry Ammo by Patrick Sweeney | April 25th, 2016 We all do it. We pour a handful of ammo out of the box, stuff it into magazines and then go blasting. However, you should not do that with the ammo you will use in concealed carry. Why? Because, as a friend...
