When pocket carrying, an LC9s in a DeSantis Nemesis.
I wear shorts, t shirt and sandals year round, except when at church. and I'm overweight (not horribly, but troublesomely).
Winter carry Glock 32 .357 Sig in Kydex IWB or Springfield XDM Elite 3.8” 10MM also in a Kydex IWB.
I just noticed though I’m going to need some epoxy or maybe a new Crossbreed.
Perhaps I’ll see if I like the Alien Gear offering for the 1911 since the one I have for my Steyr has proven it’s self pretty well by this point.
Edited to add: I haven’t been a truly fat guy for quite a few years, but when I last was, I really liked my CZ82 in a standard hybrid style IWB. Good firepower, well shaped for comfy carry, and reliable. If I gained all the weight back these days I would just stick to a snub revolver in the front of the waistband and accept the lack of firepower, or perhaps I would pick up one of the new micro compacts in .30SC. If S&W does the CSX in that caliber I would think it would be just about perfect.
Today, a CZ Rami.
Really depends on were I am and how I am dressed,today it is the 642 as to keep unoticed.
I think you have more options than most. If fat guy also means fat fingers then a larger pistol may be what you are after.
Sig 365, Springfield Hellcat, Ruger LC9, or Smith Shield 9 or go old school with a Glock 26, 27, 30, or 36.
And the Alessi holster with my Star UltraStar in residence.
Do you wear your holster around the 3:00 position? Those hybrids like the SuperTuck are designed for wear farther back, such as in the 4:30 range for a righty.
I'm in FL, so shorts and shirt is everyday.
A Glock 19 or Sig 365 is easily concealed in loose untucked shirt & shorts and much preferred over a j-frame.
I carry bigger than a Glock 19 or Sig 365 so those should be easy.
I like the faux ivory grips on the S&W Model 469! Occasionally I like to indulge my blued guns with the addition of faux ivory grips just because I like the way they look together.
No matter what you carry, dress for it.
I don’t think I've ever had an IWB that was comfy and useable at 3. I’m at 4 or 4:30 with any gun or holster combo I use other than carrying a snub in the front of the waistband.
I like the look but black on black is certainly less conspicuous so will likely stick to one of the black pair unless I'm going to a pachanga..
I wear my IWB holsters to include the SuperTuck and Crossbreed holsters at 2:30 tp 3:00 positions due to bad shoulders. I have no issues doing so.
