Recent changes in carry gear to follow.

I was afraid this would happen. I finally got a belt holster for my 1911 and I'm liking carrying it more than my Glock setup.

A Safariland ALS like I have for my Glock, but since the is no rail I don't have a light attached. And I found a double mag carrier from Blackhawk for the opposite side on the belt. However, instead of the 3x13+1 one in the pipe for the Glock setup I was only going to have 3x8+1 for the Colt. That's a 15 round deficit. That's not horrible and still unlikely to be ever used, but since I tend to lean to overengineering stuff and not going for this is just enough I wanted to make up that deficit. Enter the Desantis double mag carrier ankle holster I found from GrabAGun. Now, I'm actually up 1 round from the Glock setup with another ankle to go, maybe. Why not go crazy?

Another thing some of you have seen at Rudy's is a knife I sometimes carry when I'm wearing my Duluth firehose pants. There's an external loop for tools that I can mount the sheath that comes with a CRKT Sakimori. I don't like carrying that beast on my belt and have found a boot knife from GrabAGun that I like. A CRKT Shrill. It arrived and then I discovered I no longer had a pair of boots to clip it to. No problem, I discovered I can attach it to that Desantis ankle mag carrier and carry it behind my ankle/calf just fine. I was worried about the weight of two 8-round mags and a knife on one ankle, but after wearing it for four days last weekend on a road trip I had no issues. I would have ordered two of the ankle things, but was worried about ending up with two that I didn't like. Now that I know I will probably go ahead and order another one to balance things out and be able to carry more. Maybe even a second knife behind the other calf. If I do that I'll be at 7x8+1 total rounds not counting the box of 50 JPH WWB I keep in my truck. (Shhh) We're getting wild now!

I'll see if I can't remember how to get pictures into my photobucket thing and post some in a day or two.
