I have a full size RIA 1911 that I CC. It's the nickel finish. I love the look, feel, and history of the gun. I HATE carrying it. It is HEAVY! It jams upwards when I sit in the car, makes my wallet stick out, and is always noticeable to me. I have a gun belt, and it still seems to sag my pants down or just feel awkward. I am thinking of getting a lighter gun because "If it's uncomfortable, you won't carry. If you don't carry you won't be ready."
Either way, that cerakoting sounds pretty good.
