Fat guy holsters

I am, shall we say, generously proportioned...and need some ideas for concealed carry of a Glock 26. I own a CZ P01, and have a Galco summer comfort holster for it. That style (IWB) is okay, but tends to stick out a bit from my burgeoning waistline. Same experience with my 1911 in a Yaqui slide.

So...short of telling me to drop some lbs, which I realize I should do, anyway, I would appreciate some input. I tend to dress in jeans or khakis, with a sport shirt or sweatshirt in the cooler months. I was considering a Galco MOB holster, but am having second thoughts after reading some threads about possible back injury if I fall on the gun.

Any and all comments are appreciated!:)

Have you considered a Pager Pal? It's pretty unorthodox, but it is the only thing I can use during the summer. It tops 120 degrees regularly where I work in Bullhead City. That means shirt and pants only.
The Pager Pal drops inside the front of your pants. When you pull the pager or phone up, the holster and gun come up out of your pants.
I carry a Kahr K40 or a CZ82 comfortably with no sign of having a gun any time of year.
Like I said, it's a little unorthodox, but it works.
The company has just been sold and its web site is down, but you can see one and read a little about it at: http://www.texaspolicecentral.com/pager_pal.html
