KNOWing Iíd be in a gunfight, Iíd stay home: lugging a shotgun around all day is conspicuous.

Yes, of course. A long arm if possible.

When I was a kid, if you got "called out" to fight after school you pretty much had to participate. It was Kid Code.

Now, as an adult, if someone demands that you go fight them in the parking lot there's no irresistible social pressure to do so.

Sane adults are not easily compelled into going to jail, or a hospital, by being called a chicken.

I carry a full-size 1911 occasionally, but usually carry a CCO. However, I may be moving to a Commander when it arrives later this year.

The bottom line is: if you can conceal it, carry it.

Full size? Not often. Mostly I flip flop between a bobtail commander and CCO.

Some times in the winter I'll drag out the double stack 5" but it's pretty danged heavy for all day carry.

Cant say as I care what others think of my carry, then again I only discuss that kind of thing (in the real world) with 2 relatives, both 1911 guys.

I once bought a car from a dude who had shot a credit union robber, in the leg, with a NAA .22

No problem carrying a full size 1911. Itís your choice.

I think each should carry what they are most comfortable with & what they shoot the best with. I wouldn't worry what others think. What's best for me may not be best for you!😉

Carry what you can carry and use most effectively.
Do not worry what others say, go your own way!

I carry a 3.9Ē barreled carry grip 2011 (double stack 1911) every day. Even in Houstonís super hot summers. Iíll occasionally carry a Kimber micro 9 but I feel better armed with the 2011. I like to keep my manual of arms consistent across my carry guns.

Nothing wrong with CCíing a 1911 every day.

1911 .45 or 9mm LW Commander plus spare magazine. Sometimes an LC9s plus a spare magazine. My trigger finger prefers the 1911.

I carry a DW Vbob for most of my about town time. Those occasions where I’m heading out into the bush (or working in my yard) I’ll switch to a SA XDM-10 due to the potential of running into bears. Neither piece is small, but then, I’m not either, so they can be concealed easily enough.
