I carry a full size 1911, stainless. I holster outside the waist band on my hip. I use a good quality leather pancake holster. It will, and does get wet when I fall in.
I use my shirt tail to conceal it in the park, per the law. On National Forest, I open carry. I can CC or OC on NC National Forest land, I prefer OC.
