    I agree! The only other holster that was comfortable for me was the 12.00 Uncle Mikes IWB holster.

    I'm a righty and use a Galco IWB in leather for EDC of my .45 Gov't Model 1911s. Galco also makes them for LH CC.

    For me, I have to use a shoulder holster for a 1911. Its so big and heavy. I rarely carry mine. It pulls my pants down and is hard to conceal. I find smaller frams are easier

    Manufacturer will have holsters. I use the Springfield OWB that came with the purchase of my 1911A1. It's comfortable and works. IS THE 1911 a bit huge and weighty....YEP. But I have the girth and clothing to cover. Shoulder holster could be the answer as well. Although I'm not strong on Lefty side issues.

    6 oclock would be in the small of your back. Not good. I wear my crossbreed at what would be 8:30 for you. Conceals great and is easy to carry. However, as noted above, there are a ton of options. EVERYBODY makes a 1911 holster. Walk in to a local gun store and try a couple on with your gun.

    My problem is everyone mikes a 1911 holster but not everyone makes a lefty nor a 5 inch. I have been to many
    Gun shops and police supply stores in Tulsa county I tried on a crossbreed which was the only left handed 1911 holster in a store that had to offer other an a generic pancake iwb. I did get a generic iwb made by blackhawk and it will get me by for a bit.

    Amazing isn't it that you have all these holsters that cost so much more than Uncle Mikes yet Uncle Mikes does the job as well as any for less. I own like 4 of them including two shoulder holsters.
