    Kimber CDP Ultra lightweight in 3 " and 5" barrels or Colt Lightweight Commander are my regular carries, depending on dress.

    ditto, except, Fobus OWB kydex holster. With IWB nylon, light shirt un-tucked conceals it nicely in warm weather
    Some Special Forces and S.W.A.T. units still use 1911's

  6. I used to carry a Para-Ordnance P-13 to big in the summer time so, went to a Glock. You know what I carry it even in the winter time now. With all that saidI I do miss carry my P-13. There are so many new options today as far as holsters. I have had my P-13 since 1996 moved to New Jerkistan and haven't carried for a while until I found the non resident options. Of coarse can't carry in the Peoples Republic of New Jersey but, spend a lot of time in PA. Now that I been carrying again I am thinking about new holster options for my P-13.

    I carry a 1911-A1 GI .45. It is kind of heavy, but it's not all that bad once you get used to it.

    AL, how do you like your Tactical RIA? I know the RIA is a decent little 1911 and a great budget gun. I don't have any experience with the Tactical, and was thinking of getting one to bang around the woods or fishing with. I want something less expensive than my Kimbers or Colts. If I loose it overboard or it gets beat up by briars and such, I wouldn't cry as loud I guess. Have you fired it much. How's the reliability and combat accuracy? Thanks.

    I like it a lot. It pretty much shoots to point of aim, and I think it's more accurate than I am. ;) It feeds hollow points with no trouble at all. The only thing I would change, would be to add dots to the sights to help pickup on the target faster.

    I would have said "the only 2 things I'd change, would be...." But I already changed out the FLGR for a "standard" length recoil guide. :) I'm an old fashioned sort of guy, on somethings, and I don't like the FLGR. :)
