if you are not stuck on .45, take a look at the Springfield EMP. It's not only my favorite carry gun, but onbe of my favorite and most accurate shooters as well. I think you can get a .40, but mines a 9mm
+1 I carry a Kimber Pro Carry II everyday.. I'm 150lbs 5'10"hammerg26 said:I conceal a Kimber 5" without any issues...
I've recently started CC'in a 1911, ( .45 Kimber Pro CDP II, in a Milt Sparks VM2, I'm 6', 215 lbs ) and I have no problems concealing it under just an over shirt. With it's slimmer build and riding in a canted IWB holster, I've found it to conceal much better than most double stacks.guardguy said:How bad is a full side 1911 to conceal compared to doublestack's?
I'm about your size and I can conceal a S&W 1006 (5inch brl) in a bianchi IWB with no problem as long as it is at 4oclock position. If you can get used to it you will be fine. Sometimes I'd rather be comforted than comfortable.guardguy said:How bad is a full side 1911 to conceal compared to doublestack's? I am 180 lbs, 5'9" and average military type build. I am thinking it might work with Comp-Tac or a minimalist IWB holster.
Yup, a 'bobbed' Commander is the shizzle. Melted, in black chrome, night sights with polished stainless hardware & parts. Oooo.Editingfx said:A good IWB + proper gun belt can really suck a 1911 into your side, making it very concealable. Personally, I feel the need to carry an extra mag though. Had I the $$, I'd buy a 2nd 1911 in CBOB style (Commander Bobtail), as I think for me, it'd be the perfect CC 1911.
