    Ok guys, I just got my first handgun, a Springfield Armory 1911.
    What I want to know is how many of you carry a 1911?

    I carry a Commander sized 1911.
    When Sapperleader gets me the holster I'm buying from him, the full-sized will get some carry time too.

    I carry a 1981 Series 70 gov model every day. The only handgun I have, the only handgun I need.

    What type of Hoslter do you use? My wife has an STI Ranger she would like to carry. She is not built like me and the VM2 isnt comfy for her.

    I carry a 1911 occasionally, mostly during the non-summer months.

    Holster is a Milt Sparks Summer Special II. Ammo is Remington 230g Golden Sabers.

    I carry an SA Champion "loaded", a full-sized 1911 A-1, or a Para C7.45 depending on clothing options for my "social" situation that day.

    All of them ride in the same rig whether it's a Sparks VM-II or Wild Bill's NSA that's on-deck. During the hot months I rotate them to allow drying time, as I perspire a good deal now that I've reached my dotage:rolleyes:
