There are way too many to give you a definitive answer. I would get a Kimber Custom II to start, it's a great gun that will give you a good basis for customization and will most assuredly act as a gateway drug to the higher end custom jobs.

My first, and currently only 1911 is my Sig C3, 2 tone, nitron & stainless/silver? With some cool rosewood USN grips that I found on Kimbers website.

I love this gun! Practically invisible when carrying (I IWB with either a king tuk or crossbreed). And it's more accurate than I'm capable of right now...

Tucker Gunleather is some of the best leather rigs around. Some real nice 1911's in this thread, keep'm coming.

I've got 2 Rock Island Armory .45 1911's in tactical and the polished nickle GI model, GSG .22 1911 in black, and I just purchase the Ruger .45 SR1911 and I love them all. If you get one it starts to multiply some how, be careful.

Man, I can certainly vouch for Tucker Gunleather. I have three belts, 5 mag pouches and I don't know exactly how many holsters. I have an Answer, like yours, two HF1's and a bunch of others. The craftsmanship is second to none, customer service (IF you ever need it) is the best in the industry, plus they just look good.

Easy, a VERY sturdy belt. My belt (made by Tucker Gunleather) is just under .5" thick of solid cow hide with the rough side of the hide facing in, which gives some traction. I don't put the holster on the pants, it goes over the belt for support. And I think my Big-A$$ Texas belt buckle helps too. I'm also really skinny so my hip bone holds part of the holster up

I got a Tucker Gunleather IWB holster and magazine holster, and if I have it with me my KaBar is usually right alongside!
