    Okay, assuming you don't want to wear a fanny pak, the holster that is going to offer you the most concealment in OWB is what's called a high ride. Look for holsters were the trailing belt slot [left one on a RH] is just at or below the trigger guard. Seeing how the P220 is a rather large gun, this style will be your best bet. However, it may not be the most comfortable. Be sure you get one with a sweat shield - this will keep the gun off your skin. You are gonna need it in that Georgia heat. A high ride puts the muzzle closer to the belt line, which makes it easier to cover. but the holster has to be pretty stout to combat flopping over and this is why some people find them uncomfortable.

    Shove two layers of 5" wide cardboard in your pants about 4-5" above the belt line and you'll get a good idea of how it will feel as you move about - try different positions [10-6 o'clock] until you find what feels best. Most people carry between 3 and 5 with the ideal position being whatever places the guns grip a close as possible to parallel with your body.

    Another style that would work is a "small of the back" holster. You need to read up on that as there many pros and cons. Probably not a good idea to start, but just know that it is an option.

    The next thing you need to decide is if you will carry an extra mag.

    The next thing after that is you must have a high quality belt. In fact, this is what you need more than anything else. Nothing else is going to work as it should without it.

    Do you need suggestions on some gear to look at? What is your budget? How soon do you need it?

I also have one UBG holster [a Regulator for a HK USPc] and his work his work is outstanding.
