I am 6ft about 240 Lbs. A little big in the mid section so lately my polo type shirts are a little clingy in the back.

I am wondering what type of IWB holsters other big guys are using and at what position they are carrying.

I will be carrying an M&P 40 Compact.

Thanks

Take a look at the Comp-tac Minataur.
I'm 6'3" at 275#'s and they work great for me with my USP, P13 and PT1911.
When I first purchased them I was closer to 300#'s

I am 6 foot and 240 also (down from 285) I carry a Glock 19 about 3:00 to 4:00 in an AKJ concealco style leather IWB I made myself. I have the cant at about 20 degrees. I have also used the same style holster for my Kel-Tec P11, and sometimes used a High-noon, bare asset for the P11.

Do you guys find it easy to wear polo type shirts and conseal at 3:30, 4:00 or anywhere around there? Maybe I need new shirts. I find mine are cling to the back.

Dave,
You can try to stretch them a little before wearing them. I just made the decision to go back to wearing short sleeve button down casual shirts...kinda like mechanics shirts but not so "work shirt like" it is So. Florida after all.
I too am a big guy...5'9" 250lbs...I went with IWB...at first. I get tired of making adjustments for driving position so I carry at 3:00-3:30. I ordered a custom holster that was IWB/OWB..while waiting for it I got an IWB Summer Comfort from Galco. It works well but I found as a t shirt and sometimes Polo guy, I couldn't hide the loops very well. I tried wearing my custom holster IWB at first and never could get it to feel "right" so I tried it OWB with some new cover shirts I bought and I'll never do IWB unless I have to tuck my shirt.

6'4" 235 lbs.

Blade-Tech "NANO" or "Ultimate IWB". The High Noon "Split Decision" is good too.

Worn at 0330-0400.

I wear hoodies, button-up shirts (unbuttoned unless windy), and light jackets for cover garments.

When I can't cover (heat, work, etc.), I tuck with a long-tailed button up, or a t-shirt that's a size too big.

While the oversize shirt may sound sloppy in appearance, I have to regularly buy clothes that are one to two sizes too big to have the sleeves cover my arms. Anything else looks like the shirt version of Capri Pants. Sound familiar?

Im 6'2 248 and I use a blackhawk IWB (my normal carry is a SERPA owb), it was and still is my dads, but we regularly swap holsters to "fit our mood" so to speak. Hes 6'4 and was almost 320 pounds when he first bought it and it worked like a charm, still does now and he lost about 40 pounds. BTW I carry a full size sigma 40 most of the time and he carries a full size XD-9 in it.

I'm 6' 1"ish, 250. Skinny legs and no ass, it's all in my gut and torso. I carry my Glock 19 or 32 in a MTAC at about 3:30 with no problem, it's quite comfortable. At least as comfortable as it's going to get! It helps if you pick a reasonably compact gun like the G19 and get a good belt, like a Beltman.

I've tried carrying my LW Gov't model 1911, but no go for me. I'm sticking to the compact Glocks for on-body carry.
