I have a IWB holster made by old faithful holster. I wear it everyday. They make gun specific IWB holsters. You might give them a look www.oldfaithfulholster.com

Aliengear holsters. Cheap and great quality, along with a wonderful lifetime guarantee.

Personally, I would rather look like a gunslinger than every other potential victim to a criminal, but that's just me.

Open carrying, can sometimes make you the target. If I couldn't conceal carry though I would much rather look like a gun Slinger than not carry at all.

Concealed carrying does too.

When I carry my full-size 1911 IWB, I have been very happy with my CrossBreed SuperTuck. I have another CrossBreed and a Galco IWBs that I use for different pistols, and they have been great as well. I don't think you'll go wrong with any of the brands mentioned by bofh.

I also use a Crossbreed IWB for the full size Colt 1911. I bought this holster in 2006. I stopped adding holsters to my collection after this purchase. The belt I use with it cost me more then the holster did. No sag, stays tight to body, can put into battery quickly.

I use a Walmart work belt to carry IWB/OWB. It twist flexes, but you cannot grab the top and bottom in the same spot and bend it by trying to close your fingers. It cost me 12 bucks, and I have no problem with my duty sized Springfield, and a 19 round magazine worn on the opposite side. It has reinforced holes, and reinforced the length of the belt.

Works for me. I'm several years into using it nearly every day, with not one issue in the retention department.

I snickered when I saw it, but when I tried to compress it, that is what sold it for me. YMMV.

Only complaint is the buckle is large, and tends to dig-in when entering a car, or when you have to squat to look at some merchandise.

That would no doubt be helped if I could get rid of my dickey-doo disease.

That's when your belly sticks-out further than your dickey do.

Wow! Folks do read this. Thanks so much for the input. I got a Alien IWB - tried it 1 time and didn't like it. But - I'm going to carry. I'm just going to have to get use to it. Should I be wearing it about at the back pocket of my jeans? Help me out here folks.

Yeah, when we aren't tearing each other's throats out in the political sub forum, there is a lot of firearm experience here. Lol

Where you carry it, will be entirely up to you (body shape, flexibility, habits, etc).

I find appendix carry (1 - 2 o'clock), conceals on my body better. After that, the flat side of my thigh/butt cheek (4 o'clock).

The farther back you go, the more you have to twist and then twist back. The firearm has to come back around the body just to point shoot...I don't recommend 5 - 7 o'clock carrying...but again that's entirely up to you.

If you're conceal carrying you look like a regular person, I guess that does make you a target in some respects, but people who open carry would be the first target in a crisis situation.

Care to share your real world examples? I have plenty of examples of concealed carriers being targeted for looking like an unarmed victim.

Within the last year a gentleman was open carrying, and was held up at gun point, the crook took his money, and his gun.

I'm not going to argue for something I think is good, I th I,k if you can't conceal, open carry, if you like to open carry, than open carry. And I do have links, I just have a day job so I'll use my time more wisely and go reload some rounds or spend time with my family, rather than sit on a forum and ***** and moan to people. Peace out cub scouts.
