Full Size Carry

Anyone carry a full size as an EDC?

Curious to see what people have to say.

Yes during winter. Carry a canik tp9, 18 & 1 owb at 2 o’clock. Looking for a shoulder holster for it tonight.

Sometimes I do, when I miss my loyal friend Beretta 92FS.

During deer season, and when woods walking. 6 inch barrel GP100. It doesn’t get much more full size than that.

I myself am a ‘compact frame’ and I can only conceal a 1911 via shoulder carry. With a thick coat.

I’m tempted because I’ve been comfortably carrying a shield 45 with extended mag. The grip is the same length of my M&P 9. The only differences are width and weight with the 18 rounds.

Won’t be making any real EDC changes any time soon, just curious to find out who does carry this way.

@David-65 Please educate me on the seasonal change up.

I’m guilty of that, too. Sometimes I think it’s fun to carry a 1911 when I have the layers to hide it. It’s a nice thin frame, actually, it’s just that it’s a full sized service pistol. Maybe if I had a fancy holster I could wear it in the Summer, but I’m also pretty happy with my little .380 that I carry when I’m dressed for hot weather.

Larger, heavier, multilayered clothes make hiding bigger guns easier.

How so? During Wisconsin winter I wear heavier clothing ( mostly fleece) so easy to hide a full size weapon. Other 3 seasons mostly ss button down & prefer cross side iwb so smaller weapon. Going to try a shoulder holster to see how that works

@45IPAC Duly noted!

Thickness difference is huge, but length is the hardest part. I love how easy it is to clip on the Shield 45 and forget it’s there, but I may try to carry this full size one day.

1911, either full size gubment model or Commander. I don’t own one at the moment, but my favorite is a 1911 with a full size grip, and a Commander slide.

@David-65 makes complete sense. What quadrant of the state do you occupy?

When I dress up or use a belt I carry my S&W sd40ve. I love that gun.

I’ve never been too concerned. My summer carry only holds 5. That should get me to my rifle. If I empty my mag and haven’t moved my feet, I’m wrong.

Where do you keep your rifle when you’re at a beach or park?
