Normally carry a G27 in appendix carry and it works perfect for me, but I got a Ruger 1911 CMD 4" and I've been wanting to start carrying it.

First off it was wayyyy to heavy for my other belt so I bought a new MMAGPUL TEJAS GUN BELT to remedy the problem. That worked the gun does not sag anymore but it still printed so I figured it was the holster. So I did my research and purchased a Crossbreed Supertuk and Mag Carrier for the gun. Got everything in and put on. The holster helps a lot to keep the gun closer to my body, but even if I pull the belt as tight as I can get it which makes it very uncomfortable. I still print like crazy. I don't wear tight shirts but they're no where near baggy either they just fit I guess you'd say.

Is this just a losing battle to try and carry the 1911?

Kyle, the back strap of the 1911 is the hardest part to avoid printing. That's what sticks out the most and makes a nice little point through your shirt. A full size 1911 is a larger pistol for CC. Having a more loose shirt, or a shirt that isn't tight fitting will help.

But, I carry what I want, and I don't worry about printing, honestly. I carry a G23 most of the time now, and often my G20 in 10mm. I don't worry about printing for either. With open carry now, it doesn't bother me.

Youíll put in weight with your wife being pregnant, the printing will go away as you buy bigger shirts.

Seriously though, I conceal a P226 with rail and extended mag everyday. I donít worry about printing, but do wear some XXL shirts

Like has been stated most people won't ever notice. I carried a 1911 of some sort for a decade and never had any problems, I used different holsters though. A lot depends on where you actually place the holster and pistol as well.

That's the exact spot that is printing like hell.

rofl I wear a size large maybe if I went up a size it might help a little with the printing.

When I buy clothes (pants and shirts) I but them one size too big so I can use them to carry. You do have to incorporate your wardrobe into your carry methods.

Just to be clear, you are talking about regular IWB, behind the hip right?

Iíve got all kinds of suggestions on how to fix your problem if it was AIWB, but I donít think thatís what youíre talking about.

The 1911 is behind the hip about 4:30-5 o'clock. The beaver tail of the 1911 don't feel to great carrying appendix and the 1911 is a little long to carry appendix when sitting down.

This is strong side carry, the G27 I carry appendix just fine it's the 1911 strong side that I have problems printing.

That's what mine is commander size but mine seems to print a lot. Maybe I'm just thinking it, but when my wife tells me it's printing bad it must be because she isn't very perceptive.

Tee shirt untucked and printing all the time.
