For all you guys out there that are slightly rotund, what kind of holster do you use for you conceal carry?

Hmm, I guess I'll admit to being less than svelte. For IWB I use a Crossbreed SuperTuck Deluxe, hides the 1911 well when using a forward cant around the 4:30-5:00 position.

I'm not as svelte as I once was. I feel very comfortable with my new Kholster.

Well......I don't consider myself to small of the "belly", but I wear a IWB appendix carry at about 1:30 or 2 oclock. There seems to be a small "crease" in there that my PT145 fits in very nicely, and with a drop over shirt you can't see it for my belly holding the shirt out. Hope this helps...God bless and have a wonderful New Year!!

I'm in shape!...round is a shape.

Lately I've been using the 5.11 holster shirt - very easy to conceal almost anything, and you can keep spare mags/BUG on other side.
(funny how it doesn't look like that on me)


You want it tight, so get it one size smaller than usual, or better yet find a local 5.11 retailer and try it on first.

Thanks guys! I'll have to take a look at your suggestions. I expect to loose a few pounds over the winter months, doctor's orders, but I was wondering what would be the best. Thanks again!

Happy New Year to all!!!

Hey if you loose weight you won't need to get new pants that fit with your IWB holster tucked inside.

I have a number of friends who are more rotund than I am and they carry in a CrossBreed SuperTuck, or one of its clones. I find that big piece of leather makes concealed carry more comfortable than anything else I've worn and does not restrict my movement at all. I find a big gut gets in the way with appendix and cross draw carry positions with anything other than small pistols when sitting and in general the backside of the hip is the most comfortable carry position.

OWB in a Bianchi belt holster between 3:30 & 4:00 depending on my body position. Sitting i slip it back so the barrel doesn't dig into my hip, while standing and walking it gets moved forward. I usually wear large shirts and longer coats to conceal any chance of printing.

IWB Theis Holster at about 4:00 position or Tauga IWB that I wear OWB at about the same position. They're both comfortable sitting or standing for me and conceal under a jacket or untucked shirt nicely. The Theis is tuckable as well for a more polished look.

I carry the TCP in a wallet holster in the back pocket of my Levi's, which I refer to as a "Butt Holster". Or I use a double slot belt holster if I'm wearing my Lee's, as they have a smaller rear pocket. IWB didn't work and I'm too cheap to buy new pants. I'd have to go to the husky guy store.

As one who is considered "vertically challenged" and "horizontally enhanced" (short & fat), I use the Bulldog pouch/holster on my belt for my TCP. It looks like a smart phone case. After carrying it for almost two years, no one has ever given it a second glance. Plus, it is easy and fast to access the TCP.
