My EDC is CZ 75BD and 97BD- I rotate- Summer I carry My CZ 75bd and Winter my 97BD. I will be taking my CZ 97BD .45 out of the rotation because it is now Cajunized. I will use it for competition shooting.
I am pretty excited to EDC my 1911 (.45)- I feel it is safer than most striker pistols. I have a custom-made holster from Ronin Leather. I have150 rounds already downrange, a mix of target and defense, ammo. So far no malfunction. I am confident I can start to carry when my holster comes in. I bought a few Wilson Combat mags also.–my 1911-Magnum Research aka Desert Eagle 1911
Any tips, please share i love to learn!!!

Winter is my EMP4, summer is M&P shield both shooting Fed LEs I only change when I swap to shorts. If I am in jeans/pants, I stay with the 4" 1911. I prefer it over the shield but the reduced weight is much better in shorts for me.
I will be picking up my Second 1911 on Wednesday- Springfield Ronin EMP 4in 9mm- I am taking a break from my DA/SA CZ Pistols.
Federal HST 124gr for the 1911. Or Glock, depends on how I feel in the morning.
Maybe not obvious, but that is an EMP4 9mm in my photo above. You are going to love it! It does have a 6 o’clock sight picture, so you might group a little high at first, depending on what you are used to.
I really can’t say anything bad about the holster, it is really comfortable and holds everything in close and tight to the body. The cant makes drawing with strong hand very smooth, but off hand drawing is a little challenging, just like every other holster I have , most of it is bad shoulders.
Doesn’t anyone carry a 45 acp 1911 anymore or am I a dinosaur?
I do, I do!!! I carry both 9mm and .45
Little Different EMP. I will be picking up the ronin version
You have the nicer version, lol
