Sorry I don't know how to post pics. My EDC is usually an IWB holster by T&T Gunleather along with three mags for my Vbob DW 10mm. If I am wearing a sport coat for work then it is Overland Leather's OWB with his mag holders and a belt by Overland as well. I am at a point where I may go to a Wilson Combat EDC 9X so the leather will remain the same.

My Criterion’s are my go to in the summer and their 55BN is my go to in the winter. Here are some of them including a little VMII for a little P238 for quick trips to the store. Either their S-4C or D-4C for my mags.

There are a lot of choices that work well, but one of the most important factors is body shape and size as to what works best, and varies per individual. I'm in the same boat as David, my EDC is a Wilson TSG Pro .45 in a Milt Sparks Criterion.

Usually an MS VM2, sometimes an SS2. I occasionally use my Criterion. The double magazine carrier is from Tauris Holsters

Thanks guys. I have carried my 5” 1911 in Sparks SS for about 10yrs now. I it’s in rough shape. I got it used off here. With my oily skin it almost black now and the leather is getting thin in a coupe spots from lots and lots of draws. I just bought a commander length 1911 and was seeing what else y’all found that worked well. Might just see if I can find a SS for a commander. Guess if it’s not broke don’t fix it.

Wilson Combat Lo Profile for my 1911's. Rides high and close for me. Great retention. Also a fan of Wright Leather Works Predator. Own several of them.

apipeguy, you don't find the VMII a bit too large for the P238? The reason I ask, I recently bought a Sig P365 mainly for pocket carry, with 10 round mags, a holster is starting to make sense. I was thinking of the MS Summer Special, seems more in line with a smaller gun.
BTW, my 5" Fusion rides in a Criterion.

Also a Milt Sparks “Criterion”; conceals very well; ready, positive draw-stroke; very good retention; *comfortable*:

I like my Crossbreed super tuck. I like the large footprint leather back as it stops uncomfortable gun to waste contact.

Not at all, it is very comfortable and I do not find it bulky at all. My almost son-in-law just bought a Warbird that is very similar to a VMII for his Sig P365.

I have the original summer special for a Commander and it is a great holster. I don’t think you would go wrong with a SS.

I usually have to conceal carry so I don’t carry a 1911 every day. Instead I carry a Springfield XD-9 sub-compact in a Concealment Express IWB kydex holster that I wear between 1 and 2 ‘o clock.

My 1911 holster is primarily a Milt Sparks Axiom. The photo is from the website.

I have mostly VMII for 1911s and a few 55BN for OWB. For my M&Ps and Glocks, I tried the SSII. I prefer the VMIIs over EVERY holster (Comp-Tac, Crossbreed, N82, Kramer, etc., ...) I own.

I have the Axiom for a 1911 Commander, both my DW ECP and WC EDC x9 fit well in it. I really do love how it carries the gun. Just wish it had the safety guard!

I actually ordered the WC/Palmetto Lo-Profile Elite (OWB) and Undercover Professional (IWB) for EDC x9 so I could have the safety guard. I just feel better with safety lever safely secured in leather and not rubbing up on down on my skin with a chance to switch off. Have only used Lo-Profile a couple of times so far, but do like it.

A super thin kydex holster of my own making. That's a Vedder adjustable clip installed.

The problem for me is that I have to carry, Monday through Friday, pocket carry. I have a Ruger LCP II for that, and the carry rigs are nothing special.

I do have a number of other holsters for "weekend" carry though. I was carrying my G43X in a simple Bianchi leather holster today. The weather here is really hot and muggy right now, so I tend to carry a polymer pistol during that kind of weather.

For IWB my Sparks Criterion is my favorite with a VM2 a close second. For OWB I have a TT Gunleather High Ride Removable Snap Holster.
