I was just gloating over the accuracy of my advice.
I've never worn a Crossbreed rig, because I find IWB carry uncomfortable. But many other people swear by them.
I was merely pointing out that, according to my experience, you are starting out upon a journey during which you will be trying and discarding various holster designs by several different makers, until you finally find "the one." (It's a lot like dating.)
I don't know who told you that "the 1911 is an expert's weapon," but whomever he is, he's either ignorant and inexperienced, or a complete fool.
The full-size 1911 is far and away the easiest pistol with which to learn how to shoot effectively. Further, it requires you to pay attention to a safety lever, forcing you to be aware of safe shooting procedures at all times.
The .45 ACP cartridge, in a full-size, full-weight gun, has a soft "push" of recoil, which beginners who have practiced a firm grip and good follow-through find very easy to control. Further, the single-action trigger of the 1911 requires you to pay attention to your trigger press (never "pull"), while never straining or fatiguing your trigger finger.
Pay no attention to the advice of "gun shop commandoes." They talk a great game, but they know very little.
