Those who like 1911s will tell you there is no better choice for concealed carry. Those who do not like 1911s will tell you there is no worse choice for concealed carry.
I carry 1911s. Personally, I find a full-size a little awkward and I prefer to carry a Combat Commander, although I sometimes carry an Officers ACP (3-1/2" barrel) or a Para Slim Hawg (3" barrel).
