    Maybe define "front carry"... and the gun in question. The first thing that pops into my head is a 5" 1911 in a cross draw... tried it, didn't like it much. What are you thinking?

    Cheers,

    Compact 1911 carried in 1 o'clock position. I use a crossbreed for a 5 o'clock carry now just looking for options.

    Right handed I assume, so just to the right of center.
    Straight, angle... adjustable for rake?
    Belt, paddle or IWB?
    How much $ did you want to spend... in other words, just trying it out with Kydex, or willing to drop $ for nice leather?

    Cheers,
    C

    Right hand,adjustable for ride height and cant . Looking for comfort and ease of carry and draw. Willing to consider all types as I've only used the crossbreed so far.

    Kirkpatrick TCD
    Galco dual position Phoenix
    Bullard cross draw
    Kramer cross draw

    IWB -

    Head hurts now... Cheers,
