OK guys. We sit around and show pictures all the time about 1911's we own and want. I'd like to see what exactly everyone is using for gear when their shooting or if their just ambitious photographers with a love for 1911's.

So lets see your 1911's in there respected kydex or leather. Also, let me know what your using it for. If you compete in shooting sports, which ones?
And also on average your monthly round count. Let's try and be realistic! It's always been my rule of thumb to subtract atleast 300-500 rounds from what people normally list.

Heres mine!

L to R: *Springfield EMP in Milt Sparks VMII. It is my EDC, and the only leather holster I own besides an old Don Hume that sits in the safe.
*Wilson CQB in Garrett Industries Silent Thunder. This is my new IDPA/USPSA gun. I have not ran it through a match yet because of lack of time, bad weather, and i havent broken it in completely yet.
*Springfield TRP in Comp-Tac paddle. This is my old faithful. Have one quite a bit of local IDPA matches in CDP division with this guy. It saw action in a few USPSA matches while i was in GA, but I swear one guy shot like T. Jarrett that I competed against therefore never had any 1st place wins.

So let's see what you guys have!

Don't the kydex scratch and wear down your finish?

Oh my, 1911's in kydex...someone might have crapped their pants :rofl:

Honestly, I am not carrying any 1911 at this time. I hope to rotate one back in but that's another topic all in its own.

I sold my VM-II for a HUGE profit, but I have some goodies from John at 5-Shot to fill my leather needs.

Left - SA Custom Carry in Comp-Tac paddle. I'm hoping I can use this for CCW but it has to pass my HP test.

Right - Nighthawk Enforcer in Comp-Tac straight drop paddle. This is one of my HD pistols.

I'm not much of a gamer but have done a few IDPA matches, but with a totally different pistol. I hope to use one of these some day in some classes I have planned this year.

As for my monthly round count, 800-1000 lately in 45acp, and I have plenty of evidence.

There is a huge argument over that. The middle kydex holster is a kydex holster, but it is leather lined.

As far as your question goes, I've used my TRP in that holster for 2 years. The only wear points are on GS, TS, and SS from me. There is a wear point on the muzzle too, but that was from my clumsy Pitbull!

Very nice! I know you have plenty of evidence, and trust, I wont be questioning you LOL
Good choice on the Comp-Tacs. Mine has kind of been retired since I started using the Garrett, but my G34 is my primary gaming gun and that rides and will always ride in Comp-tac's locking paddle

How do you compare the regular paddle to the locking? I have a slide model that I use for my Glocks but have thought about one just for my G34.

See I tried a leather lined IWB holster on my Kimber, and the first day after removing and re-holstering the gun about ten times the leather had ripped out... Also, it made it almost impossible to draw the weapon without my pants getting pulled up around my neck...

The locking paddle is hands down the nicest holster for support ive ever used. Ive had tons of people at USPSA matches ask me what kind of inner/outer i was using. I always smiled and told them 5.11 Operator belt w/ the comp-tac. They were amazed that there was no movement. If I wouldnt have went to Garret, I would have got another locking for the CQB. They are that good!!

If you want, I can send you my locking paddle for my 34 to try out. Just send it back with cash to cover shipping on my end. And no thieving!!! I had it and the pouches done in carbon fiber and they dont do that anymore.

Oh really? that sucks!! I had never tried one until the Garrett. If you like that, I would definitely take a look at them. They are probably the "milt sparks" of kydex and have a 45 day satisfaction guarantee!!! They are a great company to deal with. small and have stuff in order.

Thanks for the offer, but I just looked at Comp-Tac's site and they don't list the locking model anymore. Mine is pretty steady, MUCH better than the CT belt model I had before. Those things are terrible for moving around.

I try to look through CT's Ebay page, they list some older things from time to time, I might get lucky there.

WOW I cant believe their not making those anymore. I am definitely calling tomorrow to find out specifics.

Luckily this guy has some AWESOME CS... I told him I wasn't feeling the holster, so he let me send it in and he swapper out the leather lined 1911 Kydex with a Glock non leather lined Kydex.

I honestly don't want to say his name... Mainly bc he handled the situation over and above my expectations, and I think it might have been an isolated incident...

All my pistols (except my Sig P232SL) are carried in Comp-Tac OWB holsters.

Galco COP 3 slot black for my 5" and a Galco M.O.B for my 3.5". Thinking about getting a mtac as it works real good with my G19.

Mine is a Nossar IWB III. Tough to find, pretty pricey, but worth every penny.....Alex makes excellent stuff. Looks like Okie's is a Milt Sparks Versa Max II.....pretty much the benchmark for IWB rigs.

I'm not taking pictures of every 1911 I carry OWB and holster set-ups, but I'll be nice enough to show you my daily winter carry gear.

Ultra Carry II with black wood grips and KimPro Tac mag in a Bianchi 100
Kershaw Leek
4Sevens Q mini CR2
Swiss Army watch
El Paso double mag pouch with 2 KimPro Tac mags
Wallet
Keys to various things including my Durango before the RAM became a separate company

http://a2.l3-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/129/c6c9b7135804472ca32fd95bf12b1057/l.jpg

I'll mention that my usual OWB holster for full size 1911s is a Don Hume 721OT and yet another Bianchi 100 for occasional IWB use. I use a Bianchi 100 for all my CCW guns except for my P238 which is either in a DeSantis or Uncle Mikes pocket holster. I bought a P11 Bianchi 100 holster for the Solo when it comes out since pictures and sources say that the Solo fits into P11 holsters like a glove. When I was carrying Glocks for a short time, I used the 100 for the G19 and G26 as well.

ETA: I forgot to put my phone in there. Its a Sanyo Droid that I'm thinking of getting rid of and going back to a regular old flip type.

That's a sweet little light. I almost grabbed one of those. I ended up picking up a Fenix PD30R4. Perfect size for pocket carry IMHO and I also keep it on the nightstand for HD since it's hella bright at 265 lumens.
