  1. Greetings and welcome to TGO.
  2. I have a 5" government model and a 3.5" officers model that I carry quite a bit. I've carried a 1911 more than any other pistol I have owned ever since I first got my permit back in '92. I have always used a leather IWB holster and if you get the right holster IWB or OWB and good gun belt the weight is not really noticeable at least in my experience. As far as leather or Kydex goes, get what you like. My preference is leather, as I carry all my pistols in leather, I just have never cared as much for Kydex but I know people who swear by them, it's all about what you like and are comfortable wearing. Both Kydex and leather have pluses and minuses and as others have said, dont skimp on the belt as it is as important as the holster. The best holster in the world isn't going to be all it can be with a belt that sags and won't support the weight of the pistol your trying to carry in it. Just my opinion, take it for what it is, lol
  3. I've got a Rossi Rio Grande in 30-30 that's listed for sale on here for $300.00 It is a copy of the Marlin 336 lever action. I would say it 90%+ in condition the only bad is it has a mark on both sides of the rail where a scope was put on wrong. I've got two other 30-30, a Marlin and a Winchester, so I figured I would let one go. I may let the Marlin 336 go but I would need $400.00 for it as that's what I have in it. You can see some pics of the Rossi on here but I can also send pics if your interested.
  4. Bump with price dropped to $300.00. I can also probably meet in Clarksville, Jackson, and maybe Nashville on the weekends. I also have a Marlin 336 30-30 I might consider parting with instead of this one for $400.00. I believe it was made around 2000 but I would have to check the serial number to be sure.
  5. You are correct, but from what I have read in 2015 Springfield started making all 1911 in the USA from USA parts. Prior to 2015 you had to look for a certain mark on the frame to get a US made 1911 I think they were marked NM but don't hold me to this, it's just what I have read wandering around the net. I have a 10+ year old Springfield Loaded Government that is US made and it's a tack driver and eats anything I have fed it. I can't speak for all of them but my loaded was as tight as any of the high end (Dan Wesson, Wilson, etc.) pistols that I looked at when I bought it. The only problem I have ever had out of it was on break in I over lubed it because of how tight the tolerance were and after a couple mags of some really cheap ammo it got so dirty it gummed it up a little but cleaned it at the range lightly oiled it and it has functioned flawlessly ever since. It is still tight and functions flawlessly so IMO you can't go wrong, just look them over and decide for yourself.
  6. Nice looking pistol. I have a Rock 45 officers model and it has been totally reliable, and shoots as well as any of the other 1911s I have owned. They make a great pistol especially for the money.
  7. I'm so glad you like the sheath, it was fun to do. It can sometimes be a challenge to match the beauty of GTs knives but I think this one definitely came together.
  8. Just pm any time, I would be happy to help. Thank you, she has been very happy with it.
  9. Thanks BHG123 I'll pass along the info on the Jean's to both her and my wife. As for the draw I know she's working on it I have told her all I can about wearing a shoulder rig so it's up to her to practice practice practice. She also knows a couple of instructors that may be able to help her if need be.
  10. She has been, she's pretty good about the direction she points the muzzle. Yep I usually don't need to worry about her when it comes to boyfriends, she can handle herself pretty well, lol. She usually carries IWB but this is for when her pants either don't have belt loops or are just too tight for her normal mode of carry, although knowing her it may become her EDC time will tell. I have carried in a shoulder rig but they have always been more out of necessity, I prefer IWB carry, but alot of women's pants seem to be made as tight as they can get them or the belt loops are tiny and won't fit her gun belt, at least the non Jean's type and she tends to wear jean's less than other styles of pants.
  11. So my daughter wanted a shoulder holster so she could carry her Ruger LC9 and her knife without wearing a belt. This is what I came up with... it still needs to have the final adjustments done and the straps trimmed but I want her to were it a bit and find the most comfortable placement before she cuts the straps. The back lower strap keeps the holster and the knife/mag pouch from going forward when bending over.
