...and seeing that I'm a total noob to this platform, I need some guidance. I noticed most manufacturers reference Colts (Commander, Gov't Model, officer) when it comes to components, holsters, etc. What would be my reference point for this weapon? With regard to magazines, I've read that I should stick with seven rounders and avoid the eights. Is this true? What brand of magazine should I be looking at? And finally, what is the general consensus for both IWB and OWB holsters for concealed carry of the 1911? Thanks guys, I appreciate whatever advice I can get. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
