I used to carry a 30 year old Colt Gold Cup but it was starting to wear. I have some high end 1911's as well. Got a deal on this RIA and after one heck of a time getting it to become reliable as in I bet my life on it, I started carrying it. Anyway, I got the wild idea to have access to spare mags instead of digging through the console. Tried Velcro but it would fall off. Wound up buying some 1" nylon strap, pop rivoting it on then just snapping the mag holder in place. So I have 9 in the gun, spare mag in my holster and three mags at my right hand while I am in the vehicle. Hopefully that will let me get out of any jam I am in. I also have a Mossberg JIC under the seat, an e tool and a tactical tomahawk on the back of the seat.
