not sure if this is the appropriate place to place a thread about my conceal carry setup and impressions but here goes!
I own a Kimber Tactical 2 Ultra and it is one of the nicest and finest firearms I have purchased so far. So naturally, I wanted a nice carry setup to go with my "showpiece"
I purchase a belt, holster, and mag/flashlight setup and Tim @ TT Gunleather did the work. Just wanted to mention that TT Gunleather's customer service is excellent and that is a value that is very important to me. I am the type of person that will support businesses like this even if it cost a little bit more money.

I am very comfortable with this setup and have wore it for hours on end. After wearing it a bit, you forget that you are carrying a 1911 on your hip...I believe the thick belt has something to do with that. The only weird thing that I am not used to is the occasional leather creaking noise when I move about. Not sure if that is the leather breaking in or that is just how leather holster setups go.
I really recommend this setup and very happy with my purchase. The long wait (about 3 months) was definitely worth it! I hope this may help anyone that is considering a holster for their Kimber.
Without further delay, here are some pictures of my rig and daily carry.
