Anyone here EDC a 1911?

Just curious how many people here on GT carry a 1911 as their EDC.

I started small and worked up to them. You can too, it takes some patience and discipline.

I carry a 1911 of some type everyday. I have strayed a few times through the years but always come back to a 1911.

Kimber Pro Carry II in a Galco shoulder holster with 2 extra magazines. I'm having back pain and shoulder carry has been helpful. My Kimber is stock down to the rubber grips. I'm on the hunt for a higher end commander 1911 but don't have enough knowledge to ink up. I'm studying Bacs guide and getting more comfortable with the variations offered.

About 90% of the time I carry a Wilson BWC or a Novak Colt government model. The other times I carry a Rohrbaugh R9

I used to carry a Kimber ultra tle, but was never satisfied with its reliability so I shelved it. I have an SA TRP that I carry when I get the 1911 bug, but after two years of dedicated1911 carry I switched to a glock 19, but am once again bitten by the 1911 bug and am now thinking of replacing the Kimber with a dan wesson cco.

Most of my EDC is a snubbie of some sort. Now and then I'd throw in a different gun for grins and giggles.

Lately I've preferred the Colt Defender 9mm coupled to Milt Sparks Heritage Limited and matching Milt Sparks belt.

There was a coupla years that I carried 1911 off duty and sometimes as a back up to my duty gun.

I'm older and weaker now and carry a Kahr CW40. It's a bunch lighter and fits in my pocket

Someday when I get the rest of the rifles I want, I'm going to lay down the cash for a Wilson CQB Tactical LE and a CQB Elite.

One will be for the range and the other for EDC. I never thought in a million years I'd consider a 1911 for a carry gun but as things often do, my opinion of the 1911 has changed with time. It's one damn fine weapon when done right!

Off duty is a stainless Combat Commander 45ACP in a Blackpoint Tactical rig, and either a 27 on my left ankle(long pants) or a 641 in my front pocket (shorts).

Although I appreciate a nice 1911 as much as the next guy it's not my choice for EDC. I guess I'm more of a polymer, striker fired kind of guy in that department. And yes, I do own a couple of 1911s.

During the summer I carry a Kimber Ultra Raptor ll. And yes, it is very reliable.

In the winter I carry a Kimber Carry ll that has been completely re done by Fletcher Custom Pistols. Both have a high ride, forward cant OWB leather holster made by FIST Holsters that they ride in.

A Ruger SR1911cmd fits the bill for me just fine. I carried a Kimber 5" for over a year, but find the smaller Ruger to be easier to carry and with a 10+1 round magazine plenty for most times, but it's always nice to have a spare magazine or 2 The far less price is also a great attraction. I carry the Ruger in an Alien Gear IWB at 3 to 3:30, and a 15 to 20 hour carry is no problem, i even forget it is there now and then.

MY EDC is a Kimber CDP II Ultra in a Comp Tac paddle holster. It's been very reliable and I'm very comfortable with the way it handles.
