    Anyone carry IWB 1911?

    Was thinking of making a two clip version of Mojo. Just didn't know if anyone actually would attempt or has carried IWB wit a 1911. Kinda big I think just wanted to run it by my friends here at BC. Thanks everyone.

    I carry my Springfield 1911A1 IWB about 3/4 of the time.While it is a decent sized gun,its narrow enough to not be a big deal.

          I was thinking that it is slim enough to carry IWB but didn't know if anyone would like the long barrel IWB. I don't think I would ever carry anything IWB bigger than the 9 UC pro. Goes to show you that different strokes for different folks isn't just a saying. Those that carry do you prefer snaps or clips?

            A commander size barrel is only 1" longer than the UC9 & shouldn't be a problem & being thinner, actually easier. Also, if a light weight, it'll weigh about the same as the UC9.

              Looks like I will have to work on a pattern for it. Hopefully I will be getting a 1911 soon. If I can decide what to get.

                I'll take clips over snaps any day.For some reason,I have trouble keeping snaps snapped.

                  I have carried Gov and Commanders IWB and I will tell you that the great think about my Crossbreed Supertuck is that it is open at the bottom so I only need one holster for both sizes. Something for you to consider...

                    Yep, all my holsters are open bottom. And the 1911 I make for the 4" model so the full sized can also be carried in the same holster. At least I have something to do tonight.

                      I am exactly opposite. Good directional snaps stay put.

                          I like clips myself. But the only time I cc is when I need to run out fast after work. Just grab the PF9 in my mojo and go. Snaps would only slow me down and in that case I would just get the gun belt and OWB holster with my 24/7.

                            I carry a 1911 IWB sometimes. I have an old Summer Special leather holster, as well as a Kydex holster from Blade-Tech, both purchased way back in the day. (it's true that eventually you end up with a cardboard box full of holsters. I have a cardboard box, a "milk crate" storage crate, and a dresser drawer full, myself.)

                            Biggest issue with a 1911 either IWB or OWB is the weight of the pistol. You're always hiking your jeans up! That's why I carry my Bersa FireStorm .380 most of the time now.

                            Also, regarding mag pouches - it seems that most mag pouches don't carry the magazine low enough, especially IWB. Those .45 ACP cartridges are heavy, and if the mag pouch positions the mag too high it will sometimes "upset" and dump the magazine out on the ground. Kind of a giveaway that you're carrying, if you know what I mean.

                              Yes, I carry my Kimber Pro Carry II IWB with a Crossbreed Supertuck. Quite often almost forget that it's there. Don't know if the single clip Mojo would work given the weight.

                              Still haven't found a mag pouch solution I like. Has anyone tried mags kept horizontal -- parallel to the belt?
