Holsters: 1911 Government (Full Size, 5" Barrel)
What do you guys recommend for IWB and OWB for a 1911 Government (5" barrel)? Right now I am looking at the Blade Tech Phantom for IWB and Aker Flatsider for OWB. Even for OWB, I would like for it to conceal pretty well under a loose fitting t-shirt.

For leather, I personally would recommend the pancake holster on the Holsterama website. I have been using one for my 4.5" XDm for two and a half years now. I can cover my big old Springfield with minimal printing.

For kydex, I just ordered from Off the Grid Concepts in California. I haven't received my holster yet but I've handled more than a few and they are very well made and tough. I ordered the Nocturnal Sidewinder to fit my pistol with the light mounted. They have mag carriers in a number of flavors. Single mag, double mag, single pistol and single AR Pmag, two pistol and one AR and double AR. If you want to get crazy, they can make you a single holster to carry two pistols. They make Zippo holsters, handcuff holders, sheaths to fit any knife. They even make a kydex condom holster.

Have one! Like it!

The appeal of a $30 plastic holster is just in the price, only, unless of course you like the feel of plastic against your skin.
I'm only here for the 'Foxes with Firearms' thread.

If they take our guns, who will protect our children?

For IWB Milt Sparks VMII incredibly comfortable holster. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. They have a waiting list but you can find them for a bit more around the web.
