    Sar K2 .45 - 51 1/4 oz. loaded, with 14 in the magazine.

    No aftermarket support, and holsters are few.

    Other than that, I love it. It's a tack driver that kicks like a .32

    I'm jealous, I should have bought one of those back when they were cheaper. Now I don't know if they even import them, but last time I saw one it was @ $500.

    Full sized 1911 is probably the biggest I go. I just got a new holster for my gp100, so it'll get some more carry time now. It's only a 3"barrel though. Anything longer than the 1911 and it starts being uncomfortable sitting for me. Weight doesn't bother me, the length does though.

    Glock 21 but I plan to downsize to a 27 in the future.

    I've carried an FNX-45 Tactical on occasion but it requires a large shirt/ jacket and a lot of standing.

    What's more important: length or width?

    That's almost like an IWB/OWB argument. Need a balance of the two.

    My Taurus 1911 with magwell and empty mag comes in right around 42oz, so I'd say they should feel pretty close to the same weight-wise when loaded. Of course, I balance mine out with 2 spare 8-round mags...

    P.S. - Pretty rig, BTW. I'm just not a revolver guy.
