Default 1911 Carry Options?

So what's your preferred method of carrying your 1911s? I know there are countless options these days but I still prefer good old leather. Comfortable, reliable and a touch of class. One of the reasons I like this Gold & Goodrich because of the thumb break retention strap.

Military flapped holster on a web GI belt is what I have normally used. I have other carry options, but have always wanted to protect the piece.

still sorting out how I want to carry my full sized R1, I have an Alien Gear IWB and a belt slide type for belt carry. Between the new holsters and the new 1911, I find I'm having to re-learn how to draw after 35+years. (my first 1911)

Yes i agree, GI flap holster, pistol belt, spare mag's & a nice M3 trench knife to keep it company.

When concealment is important, I like an inside the WB rig (Desantis) with a thumb break. Any other time, a leather pancake holster of some type, also with a thumb break or retaining strap that goes between the hammer and frame. Just feel better that way when cocked and locked, and it really doesn't slow you down if you practice a smooth draw. Simply Rugged and El Paso Saddlery make some nice ones.

It's a little something i put togather a few years ago to honor my grand dad who was a sapper (MOS Pioneer 729) in Europe during W.W. II he said this was the set up that he used. he carried the M1 Carbine to. i also have one of those.

IWB with no cross strap. I think it's a s&w belt holster. I have a ITP holster too. Lately I'm thinking shoulder holster.
