    I'm 6'0", 215 (with clothes and "accessories" on). I carry my Sig P220R IWB at 4:30-5:00 in a CB Supertuck. Even with a semi-tight t-shirt, it disappears.
    Is it comfortable for all day wear? I have a P226, but I have not even thought about it for a CC weapon due to size. Can you post a pic of the 220 in the CB, or PM it to me?

    The combination of wide hips and a spare tire push the grip out past armpit width.

    Because of this, the shirt drapes directly onto the backstrap, not around the grips.

    IMHO, athletic builds are more conducive to CC, as the shoulders tend to be wider than the waist, and shirts (if not overly tight) drape around the handgun
    Use a shoulder rig...... I'm a big guy with all my weight in the hips and butt so carrying on my hip just makes me bump into everything with the pistol.

    So another big guy suggested a shoulder rig and its perfect for me. They might be a little slower on the draw compared to a SS/OWB holster but I make it work.

    I've considered this route, but the problem is that it gets too hot here for a cover garment in the summer. And it would be exposed when I get to work in the winter and take my jacket off.

    So my options are limited to tuckable IWB and hope for the best.

    Too hot even if you wear like an open button-up shirt over a tee-shirt?

    In the summer I wear a tee, then I wear like a light short sleeve button up shirt that I don't button. Or only button the bottom. I stay pretty cool and concealed for the most part.

    I might be slightly warmer than just a tee, but not enough to really bother me. But I always wear two shirts, even since I was a kid.....dunno why but I've always done it.

    Not an option for work. It's dress shirt and tie.

    For casual, absolutely. That's actually my usual apparel. But IWB works just fine for in that situation as well.

    big bellies can work for you.

    I really had no intention of carrying my G20 concealed when I bought it. It was for hunting and defense but I bought everyone's story about it being too hard to hide a full size gun and told myself I'll shop for a carry gun later.

    I have put on 25 Lbs since I got my Glock20. The belly does create a cliff for a shirt to hang from and hides things very well.

    The only way I found possible when I weigh what I should is IWB 6 o'clock. But it was not as well hidden as it is now at 9:30 IWB.

    Pleated pants or loose jeans work fine. No chance of it being seen when I bend over too.

    Now I have even more reason to not go back on my diet/exercise regimen.

    I am 5'11" barefoot and my target weight is @ 197. I currently weigh @ 223.

    If the gun digs into you when you gain weight try getting some pants at least one size bigger than what fits you without the gun. Some of my pants are from my "smaller" days and while they fit they won't allow anything to be hidden either - without great pain and discomfort.

    I think this is always applicable no matter what we weigh: "Dress around the gun". Shop for clothes accordingly.

    Ya, it prints a little, but I don't really care. It would look better, but my wallet is also in my back right pocket. Most of the line you see down low, is the wallet. In my experience, people don't see stuff like that.
    If I had a 226, I'd carry it once in a while. You should give it a try.

    I for one do not buy it. The proper concealment method for the firearm and the
    individual person is the key.
