That's why I like my Colt New Service in .45 Colt. I can safely load this gun up to match the .357 in KE, and it has a bigger bullet, to boot.
I have an Improved New Service that had some custom work done at some time in it's past but didn't have it at the time.
Mine has adjustable sights and a set of Herrett Shooting Master grips.
If you’re wearing a jacket anyway I’d personally go with an OWB pancake holster over a shoulder , never found shoulder rigs comfortable, concealable, or easy to use, my self.
. Why do? More points of contact with the belt to disperse the weight typically over a lot of standard holsters, medium/high ride would be comfortable and more concealable under a jacket, especially if you want it open a little, can be had with a thumb snap if retention is a concern.
I’ve done all three options on a snowmachine (granted, it’s different than a bike) and when I didn’t need my big parka a Simply Rugged cuda worked wonderfully for my Redhawk and my 1911.
Used to have a Model 19 .357, nice gun but traded it for a 1911 many years ago. I’m actually mote comfortable with the 1911 in bear and cat country, I load with Buffalo Bore 255 gr hardcast, confident it will take down a cat or black bear, maybe a grizzly with proper shot placement. I would not recommend either if in full time grizzly country. The Buffalo Bore hard cast is made for penetration, it won’t flatten out like a hollow point.
I would love to carry an actual normal capacity magazine. Being in CA it would probably land me a felony. Not something I'm willing to risk.
When I was getting ready for my weekend ride this morning I had my my 357 in my shoulder holster all geared up waiting for my brother and the guy up the street to show up so we could leave. I had about all I could take of it. It was like 80* at 6:30am and unusually humid. I quickly decided it was too hot and humid not to mention ridiculously uncomfortable.
I goofed around with the 1911 in my waist pack for a few minutes making a failure of a modification leaving it useless as well. I don't like going anywhere without a carry gun but I was over it today. I figured 3 of us big ugly ogres in an ohv park I wasn't too worried. Plus I was already overloaded as it was and I wasn't going to risk the IWB 1911 on my hip while riding the slick shale rock .
This week I should have plenty of time to come up with a better plan. The temp is supposed to drop to around 100* this week so it will be cool enough to ride to work. Luckily my 20 mile round trip commute isn't too sketchy.
