My favorite 1911 was my springfield loaded wide body 5 inch full size all steel. I say loaded but it was from before the technically defined the stuff that came on a loaded model.

I miss that gun.

I did have the perfect one ordered & built for me. It's for SD & for in many areas that I go it's
for defense against wild hogs. I had it finished in a complete blacked-out "DLC" finish for the
best toughest finish that $$$ can buy.

It's a 1911 in the great 10mm cartridge. Being a 10mm has a lot of distinct advantages. I
can shoot loads as mild as light 9mm SD loads or loads almost equal to the 44 magnum or
anywhere in between!

The 10mm is definitely a stopper whether the critter has 2 legs or 4 legs! To me, it's my
ultimately perfect 1911 handgun!

I'd like to get a commander in .38 super. Have the government model, but may need a 2 clip holster to get it to feel better on the belt. It's a lot of weight.

I could get a better holster but I think .75" less barrel would be a wee bit easier to conceal so would rather put the $$ to the gun first, but it may require me to get something like a taurus 1911 commander in 9mm and convert.

Most of the guys that I know carry every day nearly all day long love
Milt Sparks holsters. The Summer Special fits a commander very well!

@GingerYeti - If I were you, I'd look for a Dan Wesson Guardian in 38 Super! They are fantastic firearms, I've had 2 myself & wish I had kept one. Very easy to carry, great shooters, & just about ZERO problems ever! If it's clean & the metal in good shape, I wouldn't worry if it had 1K or 2K rounds thru it!

IMO, for the $$$, it's the best 38S that can be bought but since DW discontinued them, they're getting harder to find.

Actually, I've found the longer bbl 1911 easier to CC b/c it "balances" better in the belt. My KImber UCDP 3" keeps rotating backwards or forwards despite holsters w/ different cants.

If your pistol is moving around in the holster, maybe you should invest in a higher quality holster. I have carried a Commander 1911 off and on for some years, never once has it rotated in the holster!

Or a higher quality belt.
