I am a large individual, about 6-6, 350. Any advice, other than losing some weight, on the best way for a fat guy to carry concealed? Just fyi, I am working on dropping "some" of the extra poundage. So far 16 pounds and counting...

Plan to carry my C9 until I get something more suited for cc. That will be a while.

yep I would carry around 4 to 4:30 behind were the love handles start. When you start looking for another CCW I would look for something that goes in a wallet holster, Kel Tec P3AT and Ruger Lcp comes to mind. With a wallet holster gun it useally doesn't matter what you weigh.

I'm a fatty myself, and have never had problems concealing a fullsize 1911.

Just hid the grip under a fat roll, that will solve the printing problem.

Crossbreed supertuck does wonders even on us fat guys LOL
Good holster try it, get the horsehide if you work outside. It takes longer to break in but its very resistant to sweat and humidity.

I'm a big guy as well... 6'2" 215 lbs... I love the Crossbreed Supertuck it fits my Glock 23c perfectly... as a bigger guy, you have more "real estate" to conceal your piece do DON'T feel you need to carry something small and wimpy because you are a bigger guy, quite the opposite, I want to carry as big as I can... also my CHL instructor told me that people really don't go around looking at people to see who is carrying as long as it is concealed it's all good... until someone tries to do something stupid to you... then they pay a heavy price... my Glock holds 14 rounds and I'm a good shot...

Did you ever see Jackass 2 where they make weeman "disappear". Tuck under a fat roll made me think of that..

I'm not a really big guy but I do have a little potbelly and my Mini9 Pro is pretty comfortable in the 1-2 o'clock position IWB semi-deep concealed. My gut helps my shirt ride over the gun to keep it from printing.
