    What kind of Holster do you want?
    And so when man and horse go down
    Beneath a saber keen,
    Or in a roaring charge of fierce melee
    You stop a bullet clean,
    And the hostiles come to get your scalp,
    Just empty your canteen,
    And put your pistol to your head
    And go to Fiddlers' Green.

    On a more serious note....IWB doesn't work well for "girthy" folks....OWB generally will, with a slightly oversized polo shirt or other shirth with the tails out, or even an overshirt/jacket. SOB's work, but if you're driving a lot they can become uncomfortable - and if you lean over/squat, you run the risk of exposing the gun.

    For me, a paddle type rig with a leather holster to lessen wear on the gun finish is preferable.

    I am a big dude and wear a IWB holster. I have found the comp-tac Minotaur works really well.

    Been carrying OWB and have little issues concealing.

    I feel ya. When I was ripped it was all cake. Now that I need to lose about 20lbs even the best holsters don't feel as good. Really, it all depends on how fat stores on your body and what your build is.

    Some people have a sweet spot between their "handles" and their "gut" that allows for appendix carry at about 1:3- to 2 o'clock. A little "spill over" just helps to conceal :lol: I'd advise something hammer-less if you go that route.

    Great question, one I asked not too long ago. Check out this thread as there were some great answers here: Fat Boy Holster???

    I ended up getting the Cross Breed IWBH and I love it!!!
