Even though I have been carrying for years and feel very comfortable around firearms I am a good example of how everyone moves at a different pace and even experienced gun owners can evolve. I had been carrying my Kahr PM9 and then my Kahr PM40 IWB for a week or two and felt I was ready to try to move up a bit. I decided it was time to try carrying one of my 1911's in an IWB holster. So far I am finding it very doable. It is pretty comfortable and conceals very well. Of course it is not as easily concealed or as comfortable as the PM9 or PM40 but it is worth it to me to have the larger caliber gun. Another step I have taken is the condition in which I carry my 1911. I have never been comfortable with cocked and locked carry. Even though I know it is safe there has always been something about the single action safety controlled platform that this revolver guy just did not trust. That is until yesterday. I was at the Gun Broker in Clackamas and i was explaining to a guy that was afraid of the 1911 platform how safe it truly was when you used it correctly. I showed him how the dual safeties worked and explained the firing pin block. I then showed him how easy it was to master the practice of sweeping off the thumb safety as you obtained your grip. I think I convinced him but more importantly I managed to finally convince myself. So today is my first day of carrying my Colt Officers model cocked and locked in an IWB holster. Let's all hope I make it through the day without shooting myself, a customer, or employee by accident. PS: One thing I will add is that the grip length and angle of the 1911 does make it easier to acquire a good grip from IWB than the smaller Kahr.
