    Same size guy here, and although I've been working on (and ever so slowly succeeding) reducing my girth, I have never had a problem carrying IWB. Your belt quality and pant size can have a big effect on comfort. I carried a 1911 with a beavertail and extended safeties for about three months "Mexican" style and any holster is more comfortable than that. Also, what position are you using for IWB? I only ask because one guy on another forum had complained about how painful his strong-side IWB was and it was hard to sit down with, and it turned out he had it positioned forward of "appendix carry".

    Try this. http://www.banderagunleather.com/ I haven't tried it, but it seems to meet your requirements - almost like Mexican Carry!

    I have tried all positions and the best one seems to be cross carry with a cheap clip on holster at 2:30 O'Clock. Remember I am left handed.
    One thing I though of is this gun has crimson trace laser grips on it. The led sticks out about 3/8 inch from the right grip panel which for a lefty rides against your body and pushes the grip out . Maybe this is throwing every think out of wack and why you rightys are so happy with your holsters.
    I could put the original grips on but then I don't see the sights very clearly hence the laser grips.

    Check out www.andrewsleather.com , he has a great appendix crossdraw holster and is another Florida boy. His Carjacker or McDaniel II (A VERY popular holster,) would probably be right for you.

    I'm a big guy as well. There is a store in VA called Backwoods Leather. Before you go crazy with expensive holsters this guys prices are hard to beat, and I use his leather exclusively. He is on the net somewhere, sorry I don't have the number available but look him up. He is either in Chesapeake or Portsmouth VA (He's right on the line and I'm not sure shich he winds up in). Great product, great prices.

    Make sure you've got a good, thick belt. Makes a world of difference, even for skinny rats like meself.

    His store is in Churchland (Portsmouth) on Tyre Neck Rd. next to the post office and he comes up to the gun shows at the Showplace. He's got good stuff and he'll make just about anything you want. James Kirk is the proprietor. 3022 Tyre Neck Road, Portsmouth, VA 23703
