Guys,

What's the best, most comfortable, holster for a 1911? Inside and outside? Does it ever dig into your side?

I have tried a lot of holsters over the years. I prefer owb holsters, I currently have couple, but my favorite was made to my specs by East, FFR Holsters. He is a great guy and will make exactly what you want. He has a listing in the classifieds with some pics of his work.

Full size 5" barrel? How much time will you be standing, walking, sitting in an auto, possibly on a horse, in an office environment? Does it have to be concealed? Bianchi in Askins Model was the #1 back in the 70's, but times have changed.

If you are talking concealed, my choice is Milt Sparks Summer Special 2 or Executives Companion

If you like leather, check out D.M. Bullard. Best and most comfortable OWB I've worn. I use the bodyguard for my Colt Commander, and I have one for my Colt Defender. Great stuff!

I tried several and ended up with a Galco Phoenix. I liked the fact it is set up for a dual position carry - either strong side on off side cross draw. I also liked the sight channel and the adjustable tension. And what finally sold me on it was the ergonomics of the thumb strap. I carry my 1911 cocked and locked and the function of the strap suited me best.
