    Advice on inside or outside waistband holster

    Curious what recommendations are on an IWB vs an "outside" holster would be for concealed carry.

    I'm 6'3" about 320 (too frigin much), waer jeans with belt and generally polo shirts NOT tucked in.

    Considering a 1911 commander/officers or browning HP. Leaning strongly to 1911.

    Thinking of having it above right hip, probably with a forward cant.

    Questions are really about comfort of IWB holster given above considerations. And brand/model. Cost IS somewhat of a consideration, as I won't be carrying all the time.

    Thoughts?

    I'm with you

    Other than being an inch taller than you, we are the same size. I have a clip on open top IWB Don Hume for my 5" 1911 that is very comfortable worn about 3:30, with very little printing. I have a Supertuck Deluxe for my smaller 9mm and dont even know it is there. That being said, I am planning to order the Southern Draw reinforced from rgrizzleleather.com. I really like the looks and reviews of his holsters-check out the website(especially the photos). Hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

    i am 5.11 and 270, thats roughly the same height weight ratio, i carry my fullsize XDM inside the waistband with minimal problem, plus it keeps me safe from my OWB holster printing as well as my gun, you won't have to buy shirts that are too long anymore, and you won't have to worry about concealing as much weapon

    Stick your unloaded 1911 in your waistband where you are going to wear your IWB holster. If it doesn't make your pants too tight then you won't have any problems with a Crossbreed Supertuck. I am far bigger than you, waist size anyways, and its a dream. IWB usually works better for people with wide frames because the OWB tends to get caught on things when maneuvering through close chairs, doorways and such. Here is an in-depth review I did of my Supertuck after 2 months of EDC usage. Now after 8 months total, I feel the same. I love it.
