I have always carried a glock 23 in the winter and a 27 or J frame in the summer. I shoot them all well, but sometimes it's hard to fully conceal the 23 and 27 like I'd prefer. My favorite range gun is a 5" S&W 1911 .45, and I have fallen in love with the .45 round. Hell, the only reason I carry the 23 and 27 is because my department issues us a glock .40 and I wanted to stay consistent when carrying for off duty functions (which I'll still do. However, now I'm thinking I want a 4.25 inch 1911 to carry. Is there anyone who used to carry a double stack, glock 27 or xd sc...something along those lines and now carries a 4.25 1911 and finds it easier? Or harder to conceal/ carry?
