Thumb break yes or no?
Cant?
Holster maker/style preference?
Carry position?

Just bought a 3 inch 1911 looking for suggestions and experiences

For me, no thumb break, yes to cant. Really like my McDaniels II from Andrews Leather, for me it's about as thin as one can get without going kydex. Usually carry either at about 2:00 or 4:00 depending on what I am wearing.

A buddy of mine has one of Andrews thumb break models for his High Power it is very nice and works well. He likes having the strap of leather there as a precautionary measure of the single action only/ cocked and locked. Sam does do a nice thumb break.

I love good leather,but have come to really love G Code holsters lately. I have them for my Glocks,17,19 and 1911's with and without light. Incog are super comfy,light,excellent retention that allows a smooth draw and re-holster. And they can be configured anyway you like. I'm not a fan of thumb break holsters.

I tote my full sized 1911A1 in several different rigs, just depends on what I'm doing. A Galco 'Miami Special' shoulder rig, USGI shoulder rig, USGI flap holster and lately I use a holster similar to the Yaqui slide for CC.

When I started CC a shooting buddy commented that "You'll wind up with 4 or 5 holsters till you find the right one." A lot of truth in that. :ber
