Hey new guy here just a twenty year old who is waiting til September so I can purchase a pistol. I was leaning toward a Taurus pt100 or a s&w 4006. I need some advice though I'm a large guy about 6'3 280lbs and I am not comfortable open carry. So iwb seems the way to go any suggestions for this big fella???

Check out the concealed carry section, the PT-100 is a large gun and may take a wardrobe change to conceal properly. Unfortunately it will probably take some trial and error to find a method that works for you.

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.

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 :gotmyvote:
