How a Light can Affect Your Choice for a 1911 Concealed Carry Gun Holster

If you ever need to use your concealed carry weapon, you’re going to want to see what you’re aiming at. Adding a light to your 1911 can greatly improve your ability to acquire targets in the dark. But they’re also going to affect a critical part of your concealed carry equipment: your gun holster.

If you add a light to your 1911, you won’t be able to use many standard gun holsters. You’ll need a holster with more room beneath your barrel, in line with your trigger guard. Depending on your barrel length, your light may poke out just a bit from under it. As a result, finding a holster that fits your specific 1911 and light isn’t always easy.
