Bob’s Everyday Carry…

I primarily carry one of two handguns: a Guncrafter Fastback Commander and a Guncrafter CCO. I more often carry the Commander .45, having steadily upgraded from my first Colt Commander .45 to the very best handgun I could afford as time, technology and funds allowed. The 1911 offers outstanding handfit, straight-to-the-rear trigger compression, a low bore axis and excellent practical accuracy. The .45 ACP offers superior wound ballistics at low pressure and with a push rather than a jolt. I carry this handgun in a Bitterroot Gunleather IWB, keeping the handgun close to the body and offering a sharp draw.
