IWB holster for my 1911
this is experimental, design wise. An "IWB" (In WaistBand or Belt (not really sure the correct term) is designed for extra concealment while just wearing a t-shirt. The gun is worn in the pants with only the loops and handle showing when your shirt is lifted. You can go a step further with a different strap set up, so you can actually tuck in your shirt. I rarely tuck my shirts, so i opted against. maybe another day.
I removed the rubber grips to slim it down. Just for kicks, I made this leather handle, which i kinda like, plus it's smooth on my belly. I will probably tool it up fancy tonight. The holster as a whole works pretty well, still need to mold it some more. Wearing it on the hip, where it is most comfy to sit and stand, it is still a little noticable. we'll see, or will we.....
