My GI, when carried IWB, is eating holes in my pants.

Sounds like a man who needs a shoulder holster.

Okay, I give up. What carries a 1911 and when running, pants: "gi ibw!"?

Some of the riddles folks post in this forum are damned difficult.

I think its primarily due to the fairly sharp point at the end of the slide near the muzzle. I wonder if rounding it off a bit would help, but I don't want to start grinding metal off my gun. Maybe a holster that covers the tip better. I was hoping someone might have some suggestions. I wear something very similar to the King Tuk

Something like this...

That exposes your pants to a lot of metal. What about getting some nylon lining added to your pants where the gun rides?

I did buy some denim patch material, but the gun is eating through that as well. Maybe I need to try nylon like you mentioned, or perhaps leather.

I think I'm going to try to attach a piece of leather to the holster that hangs down past the muzzle.

Rigged this up last night... we'll see how it does.

Your holster looks like it is for a compact or Officer's size 1911. A 5 inch gun should have more leather down below. Don't alter your gun, just get a proper holster.

I didn't alter my gun, I just added some leather to my holster

The stuff called "Ballistic Nylon" is extremely resistant to abrasion. It's also very flexible. But I agree that the holster is too short for the barrel of the gun.

I agree with that but believe that this will correct it
