    1911 is easily concealed under summer attire.
    Forward cant helps avoid printing when seated, plaid, print, pattern, break any slight bulge.
    Two spare mags on opposite side help balance weight.

    I'm in. I'm down to only two at the moment though, only one of which is actually in shooting shape.

    Colt's Defender 45.

    I was one of the instigators that convinced Bob Serva at Dan Wesson to create the Razorback 10mm.

    I liked the Razorback so well I talked Bob into building one in CCO configuration.

    As The Master intended. But, as the arthritis in the wrist and fingers, wrecked shoulder, CTS and nerve damage in the elbow continue, I'm sure JMB looking down from above doesn't begrudge some of the disciples for branching out into lesser calibers.

    Two of the most carried 1911s in the flock (flock, guys, not the G-word, don't get excited) as they have the best triggers.

    Since the horse cavalry is no longer calling the shots for Browning, I'm sure you are right.

    His .38 ACP cartridge came before the .45.

    Not to derail the thread, but yeah, and there are still many who would say that the 1903/1908 represent his genius just as well as the 1911 ...

    I'm not finding photos of my Hardballer, the Sistema, or the navy Arm RR--and I may be missing a couple.

    My 20 year old son much prefers the 1911 to any of the other pistols. Like I told him everything is right where the prophet JMB designed it to be. Little does he know I have him an SR 1911 for Christmas.
    On a side note. Does anyone have any experience with the Crimson Trace grips? My son has some vision problems and iron sights are a booger for him. The 1911 fits his hand so well that he is still good to go at minute of bad guy from out to about 25yards

    That Defender posted above now wears CT grips that were on the DW CCO for years because of aging eyes. I like them.
    I have the red ones but they don't work well in bright sunlight.

    When I carry a pistol vs revolver, it’s usually the lightweight commander. However, the government weight and length carries very easily as well. IWB in TTGunleather.

    I've got a 9mm in the 2nd pic; that 9mm is amazingly soft shooting.

    Good to see a topic for the adults in the room. I need a picture of my entire stable.

    They won't solve a flinch (the most common reason newbies buy them I think), but in my experience, with with solid handling skills, they are a good substitute for people who can't see the sights.

    Unfortunately his is vision related and contacts and glasses only do so much. To drive he wears bioptics He does well enough with my scoped rifle and the Ultradot on my SRH. I hope the green laser will help with the 1911.

    They've all been carried, the bulk of it with the Dan Wesson CC.

    How do you like your Citadel so far? I picked up a compact Citadel in 45acp a couple months ago and so far am impressed with it. I have put a little over 200 rounds through it so far, 230gr RN fmj, 230gr hollow points and 185gr lead semi wadcutters and all have fed fired and ejected 100%. Fit and finish are very good for a lower cost 45.
