Ya'll's Crazy! 5" 1911 is Comfy!

I just received in the mail my Brommeland Max-Con V IWB holster for my full-size 1911. This is the first holster I have owned for my 1911 (just got the gun last week), and it very possibly will be my last! I am wearing a tucked-in white undershirt (for comfort), a pair of suspenders (for support), and an untucked polo shirt over the top (for concealment), and this thing just disappears! I can barely feel it on me while I am seated typing this post. It is firmly against my body at 4 o'clock under a pair of normal size (for me) blue jeans. I think I'm in love! It's a big gun, but it's so slim that it works! This style of dress is how I always CCW. But usually hiding under the untucked polo shirt is my beloved S&W 642 Airweight. I just wanted to tell those who say that a 5" 1911 is not concealable that I have found a way (for me at least). This thing hides better than my P229, and I am pretty sure it's because it uses a single stacked mag instead of double stacked which keeps it so thin. Anyway, just thought I'd share--it's exciting!

I love 1911s but my opine is that even with a good holster and belt a Government Model gets old by the end of the day. Regards, Richard:)

Great concealed carry set-up. I used to carry that way (but no suspenders). My problem with leather IWB holsters is that overtime they lose their form and eventually the opening collapses everytime you draw the gun after so many times. Now I carry OWB Fobus for 1911 with outer shirt covering.

Nice. Did you order it via Coal Creek Armory? Is that a standard belt you're wearing? It doesn't look real thick.

I hear people say that the 1911 is a hard gun to carry, but I manage to carry my CZ75 semi compact which is a good deal wider and about the same weight. And I know other people carry the CZ75's too. I've also carried a 1911 and found that due to it's slimness it is easier to carry than my CZ75,

Retgarr; With a non thick belt but as long you have ur suspenders on your pants waistband won't sag that much.

Yes, I did order it from Coal Creek, it took 2 days to arrive via Fedex ($15 shipping though), but I am very happy with the purchase, and yes it is just a standrad belt I got at the mall one year.

Perhaps not hard to carry a 5", but sitting down with it can be interesting, depending on body style, rig, etc I believe.

I carry my full-sized 1911 almost daily, and don't have a bit of a problem with it.

im 130 lbs. and my P14 (double stack 1911) is comfy and easily concealed, even OWB.
