another month or two I will be buying either a STI LAWMAN or a Kimber SUPER CARRY PRO CUSTOM HD. cant find either but that's another thread.

Married 5 years. 1 boy age 3.
Years CHL: None yer. I will be sending the paperwork on Monday
Carry guns/equipment: It will be either a Springfield 1911 or Taurus 85 or both. Just have to play with it and see what works. My even have to buy another gun, darn!

41

Why don't you start a new thread?
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.
