    Welcome from Texas!

    As a guy of similar proportions as you, I find that IWB carry with an Old Faithful Holster feels great! I carry a sig P250.

    Hey big fella. You said that you were uncomfortable with open carry.
    Did you mean, outside the waistband carry? I myself am not a fan of IWB.

    But, I'm sure there are lots of big guys on the forum who may give you some insight.
    Oh by the way, welcome from South Tulsa!

    Welcome from East Texas to the best gun forum on the internet.

    I'd recommend a Theis Holster (one of our sponsors) or that style of holster. The double clips spread the weight of the gun over more of your pants and keeps the sag factor way down.
    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets
    Reduce them to shreds
    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    About me - I take very little seriously especially myself.

    Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.

    Hello from Central North Carolina and welcome to TaurusArmed.net! You are going to find some
    friendly and knowledgeable people here. For the OP, IWB would be easy for them to get away
    with since he has that large frame. It is us skinnier folks who really have to worry about printing
    when we are carrying.

    It will take a lot of trial and error to find the right combo, I have gone through 5 rigs looking for the right one. Even with the colt defender above, it is difficult to conceal without imprinting. I know this has been said, just providing another

    Thank you, to all who serve; past, present and future. It is people, like you, who are willing to serve that have made this a great nation. I pray for your safety, your family, and the leaders that make decisions that affect you. I will always pray for and respect the office of the President of the United States, I don't have to like the person elected. Until HE comes, or calls me home, here by the power of Christ I'll stand.
