I know that these are exactly what you don't want, but they work and I am not a small guy either:

I'm 320, and carry a RIA Compact in a Beltster. Works great for me! Pistol is susceptible to scratches though.





Full sizes too.



Shirt covers it up.

Desantis SOB, Cabelas has it way cheaper than anyone else (don't tell them that). It is the most comfortable holster I own. The Beltsters are cool, but if your jeans have any of the decorative buttons around the pockets, you run the risk of scratching the slide.

Thanks for the thread fella's. I just ordered a M7 tanker holster/WWII replica, also have a safari land paddle, an IWB Galco, and an OWB Uncle Mikes...still not satisfied. This just might do the trick.

VERY true! I have to remove the rivets on every new pair of jeans I get. I don't recommend a Beltster to carry guns that you want to keep pristine and pretty, seatbelts can mark 'em up too. But my Compact is just a carry gun, a tool for self-defense, although I love that little gun. She's not one of my pretty girls, but she's the one I go out with the most!

Brian, please let us know when you get your new holster and how you like it. I am very happy with mine, and I hope you enjoy yours.

I'd go with a pancake holster like the hume 721 open top if you don't like IWB. I'm 6'0 230, I realize I'm not the fattest man alive but I've never been accused of being skinny either- IMO IWB is definatly the way to go. It just hides so much better. I didn't even need to up my pant size to carry IWB, with a good holster/belt it is very comfortable.
