    let me start off by saying I know this gun is heavy, and wide, and full sized. i have no interest in selling this gun and buying anothe,r or buying another for conceal and carry. I am interested in carrying this dead accurate, reliable handgun. i know it's possible. I need to know how. specific models of rigs and holsters would help.i want to carry at 4 oclock position and am left handed... so technically 8 o clock :p. Pictures would help! i typically wear a button up shirt with under shirt and dress pants. I comfortably carry a full sized 1911 in this fashion

    I've carried mine, actually a Beretta 96, in a Alessi ACP. It is a version of his DOJ with a slight cant for carry behind the hip. Mine was part of a overrun order he made for the US Forces in Close Protection details

    For a gun of this size you will definitely want to go with an outside the waste band style holster. You will also want something that rides a little higher so the gun can be more concealed by a jacket or whatever outerwear you are wearing. I would also probably also choose a paddle holster so you can easily take it on and off of your body with ease.

    So, with all of these things in mind I would choose the Galco FED paddle holster or the Galco CCP paddle holster. I think I like the CCP holster better.

    I carried my 92 Brigadier in a kydex Blade-Tech IWB for a few years. I no longer have it now, but If I were to do it again, I would choose an OWB pancake style holster.

    Baretta 92fs carry

    I carry mine in a leather shoulder holster that served with the Marines in the sand. Left arm pit dangle, with 2 clips under right arm. With a vest on, you cannot tell. I ask my family if I'm carrying or not, as they can't even tell. Anyone have any idea what I received from a Lance Corporal friend?

    If forum member Shipwreck doesn't find this thread you may want to do a search or send him a PM.

    He carries a Beretta 92 in a Comp-Tac IWB holster. His is an older model, that I can't think what the name is, but the replacement model is the Infidel.

    I carried a Taurus PT99 for several years in a DeSantis Speed Scabbard (open top on safety strap) with no issues. If you have no problems carrying a full size 1911 you will find no challenges carring your Beretta.

    When I carry mine I use a DeSantis 001 three slot pancake. It works very nicely.

    I have carried my92FS and my 96 in an IWB from Whitehatholsters. It's called the Max Tuck and is very similar to the crossbreed line. 2 benefits are it is cheaper and no waiting time. Order it on line and you'll have it in a week.

    I've been enjoying my 92 a lot, packing it in a Galco Avenger holster on my weak side (cross draw). Not that I recommend that for all situations, but for me, retired LE and now just a CCW like any other citizen, I like the comfort, ability to reach it with either hand, and the easy access in a vehicle. Kind of like a vertical shoulder holster, without all the shoulder straps and fatigue. :D PS: I respect the 92 for the same reason as you; accurate, reliable, and just nicely built and finished. It also points very naturally for me. I change out CCW guns a lot, but the Beretta goes to the range more often with me, as it is just a pleasure (it also has an action job by Teddy Jacobson).

    Is "LtCpl " meaning Lance Corporal, or Lieutenant Colonel?

    I don't carry my 92 a whole lot, but when I do I just use a Blackhawk Serpa holster. Definitely not something that I try to conceal with just jeans/tshirt type of clothing. I pretty much only carry the 92 during the winter when I can cover with a jacket.

    He has a typo in his reply, he says "Compact holster", but it is a Comp-Tac holster as I mentioned in my reply earlier.

    http://www.comp-tac.com/product_info.php?products_id=68

    His is an older model not currently offered, but the replacement is the Infidel.

    I'm always searching for variations of the "Summer Special" (and Summer Special II) since just about every maker has one with the Milt Sparks the most famous. The Comp-Tac Infidel is similar, though a kydex version and little more versatile with the variety of attachments available.

    One I've found recently is the "Georgia Heat" from Talon Tactical. I don't have any experience with the holster or company, but the maker (from my various forum searches) seems like a Beretta 92 fan. He may be a good source for a holster.

    I was going to make the belt recommendation, but noticed the OP's last line in his post.
    If he's comfortably carrying a full size 1911, he probably has a belt that can handle a Beretta 92.

    Possibility exists, but many dress belts don't hold up to a full size gun, in my humble experience. Just throwing out a recommendation, as requested by the OP.

    What kind of holster do you carry the 1911 in? I bet they make one for the Beretta, just order yourself one of those.

    A simple leather pancake holster (like what armoredman posted) would be ideal for OWB carry. It'll carry the gun closest to the body of pretty much any type of holster.

    You could probably get a dual clip tuckable IWB to work well too if you need deeper cover (like a Crossbreed Supertuck).

    I like leather pancakes because they can be easily converted to IWB with some steel spring clips and chicago screws.

    My CZ is every bit as large as your Beretta and oddly enough I've had cause to post this pic two other times today :p

    The missing info is what type of rig do you currently carry your 1911 in? The design of the holster can have a large impact in the comfort and stability of the entire rig. Wide-body designs will hold the firearm more steady and feel more solid. Single-mount and narrow-mount designs for a large frame will feel a little less steady but, depending on where you carry, may move with your body position more and feel more comfortable in the long run. IWB versus OWB is a combination of personal preference, your style of dress, and how well the holster softens the feel of the firearm against your body.

    I currently carry my 1911 in a crossbreed supertuck type holster that I made.
