    Figure out where you want your gun to be at. Figure out what you need to do to make it happen.

    If you can smuggle a box of chicken into "Fat Kamp", you can conceal any gun you want to.

    6' & 290. have no problem with either my 4" GP100 or my 3" 629 using a Simply Rugged Sourdough Pancake although I normally carry a 1911 in a SR Cuda.

    6'4" & 388 (down from 420ish- yay!): IWB 3:00 in a homemade tuckable. With a bobbed SP101 (5 shot 357 revolver), I found appendix carry in a homemade smartcarry quite comfortable (WARNING - TMI: the 'roll' was my retention device).

    How is that a cheap shot? He said he is "orca size". He's the one joking about it.

    What about smart carry for people that wear their pants below their gut???? anyone doing that?
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    Takes three hands...one to lift the gut, another to hold open the pants, and a third to draw.

    I OWB carry all the time. I just don't like IWB, not because I'm fat, it because I'm left handed and my mags keep dropping on me :(

    I am not tiny, but my major problem has been my arthritis. I usually carry in my purse, but am not really comfortable with that alone. During Christmas shopping I carried my hubby's Ruger LCP because I can carry it in my pocket and it is not as heavy as the Ruger 5 shot revolver I carry in my purse. I loved it. Easy access and not a weight problem. Hubby got one for me for Valentine's Day. Two tone black and raspberry. That man really knows how to buy gifts for me. Save the flowers, candy and bling.....THIS was a really considerate gift. Now when I go to a questionable area...I will still have my purse revolver, BUT I have the raspberry in my pocket.

    I don't want to hear it from skinny folks! You can wear loose clothes and hide a 120mm cannon underneath. Try to even find loose or baggy clothes for 300+ Lbs. A baggy sweatsuit is not the answer in S. FL.

    To the OP:
    310/ 5' 10" I carry a Glock 30 IWB at 3:30 - 4:00 with a patterned, untucked shirt over it to break up any outline. Solid-colored shirts will show the outline of the gun more. Not a problem unless bending over. Then, to most, it might as well be a cell on a belt holder.

    I suggest something in the G27/27 size range as a carry firearm, or smaller. Pocket carry (LCR, etc.) is another option.

    My father is husky >300#. He pocket carries an LCP. He is also former military and a brown belt (stopped cause of military). He may be large and old but he can still kick BG butt.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I'm 5'11", 350 lbs and dropping.

    The Crossbreed Supertuck is by far the best holster for me as a fat guy. When you get to be a certain weight, your "geometry" is different when seated versus when you are standing. The Supertuck has helped me negotiate that transistion very well.
