Re: It's official, going 1911 over glock 30 for first carry gun.
The weight really isn't that bad if you have a good holster & belt. I'm 6'1", 200lb and I can carry my full size Springfield Loaded all day. I was considering a shoulder holster though so it's easier to carry in the car.
Samuel Adams once said, "among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first, a right to life, secondly to liberty, thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can."
