    Iam not a 1911 fan by no means. If the moon turned blue and Texas did the open carry.....The 1911 would be the only I carried. Full size. In 45 or 38super. Fixed sights.

    Nickle or stainless. Engraved If i could afford it. Handmade by me......Basket weave, oil finish, red or blue suede lined holster. Maybe a few conchos made of mexican coins for the belt.

    Grips in mesquite wood, mammoth tooth, or Ram horn.

    Maybe Lucite with a black widow or piss colored scorpion cased inside. With silver(not chrome) grip back panel. Similar to the examples at the Texas Ranger museum.

    XDm, reliable and I'm accurate in a good holster with a good belt.

    It's about self defense, not showing off.

    I'm sure it would be a 1911 in .45, after all, what else is there? I have a few in the stable I can choose from.

    I'd carry my M&P. I'm familiar with it and it's the only one I have for now. But I would still try to cover it-I would just have more options with open carry since I wouldn't have to worry about the occasional slip.

    Full size xd 45 service, not "m". I do not like the backstraps on the m pistols. But i do like he xd service pistols.

    I'd have to go with 1911 also. Just have to find good way of carrying the beast.
