    1911, CONDITION 1,35 years. I also have a boatload of holsters. As previously mentioned a proper belt is of extreme importance. I'm not a cop so I won't use a serpa holster. I find that wearing my ccw gun on a separate gunbelt is most comfortable.

    If we don't want to live in a trashy area, we all have to be willing to help pick up the trash.

  10. Cocked and locked

    The 1911 was designed to be carried cocked and locked, i.e., round in the chamber, hammer cocked, safety on.

    I only started carrying when Ohio approved CCW, just over 5 years ago. However, I've been a 1911 user for over 50 years, and my guns are always cocked and locked, whether in a drawer, by my bedside, or wherever.

    Now I use a fanny pack for carrying. it's not quite as quick a draw as a strong-side holster, but the concealment is excellent. No one pays it any attention. My friends are used to seeing me pull my cell phone, or my PDA, out of it, so it doesn't scream "gun" to them.

    If you go that route, make sure the fanny pack is big enough that the grip doesn't block the zipper.

    I think a cocked and locked 1911 in a fanny pack is a real bad idea. Too many possible scenarios where the safeties get disegaged resulting in a ND trying to grab and pull it out. I mean if you do intend to shoot, you're gonna be doing it in a hurry, right? Thumb safety catches on the zipper, fumbling for the grip. No way.

    Real bad idea.
