    Sounds strange but carry is more comfortable with a longer holster. Seems to balance better.Picture your belt as a pivot point,most of the weight is above- grip,full mag.
    Maybe I'm just used to having something long in my pants,unlike the rest a ya's. BAM!!!! :D

    Yep, key point here. Carrying aiwb, the grip of my little XDs prints more than that of my TRP, because the XDs holster doesn’t have a claw while the TRP’s does...

    That holster may print with the commander a bit. But it will be a good way to test the concept.

    One leather and one kydex both AIWB
    One commander
    One officers

    The Tenicor Velo is what I have found to be the most comfortable and secure holster for my Glock 45. I have every model holster they make. I’m still waiting on the 5-Shot SME for the 5 inch 1911’s I carry daily. All of my kydex 1911 holsters are just a bit too narrow to comfortably carry AIWB or they would be used exclusively. Some are the “taco” style which tends to pinch your soft parts on your inside thigh. As stated by others, all weapons have to be thoroughly safety checked before carried. I change out my Glock triggers to the Overwatch Precision and put them through a thorough safety check before I carried them. The 1911’s have been the main carry for 34 years now, mostly appendix for the past 20, and mainly Summer Special. The cant of the Summer Special is too much for me now as I’ve gained a rounder abdominal region. 5’8’’, 175lbs, 33” pants size. AWIB is more comfortable for me personally with all pistols.

    USPS has decided they do not need to honor their priority shipping dates any longer!!! Even though they charge extra for the so called priority. I have several items that have been sitting in who knows where! The longest is 14 days now!!!
    Good fortune! Honestly hope you get yours by Friday, it'll give me hope some of my stuff may get here!

    Got to love JM Kydex Wingclaw 2.5. Although not a super Glock fan, but in Mass we still have the assault weapons ban from ‘94 it’s the only way you can carry more than 10 rounds.

    Shoots great. 31 rounds when an extra magazine is present

    I just got the Glock 19 Rmr, 5” 1911 and the railed 5” all wing claws 2.5. They are all awesome.

    Bingo.

    I had been carrying and 5” 1911. But I had always lusted after a Springfield EMP. I bought one. Spent a considerable amount of time and money customizing it and then hated how it carried. It felt like the whole gun was above my belt and trying to tip out poking me in the process. I went to a G19 and now I’m build a Commander length 2011. The length of the pistol below the belt makes a big difference in carry comfort.
