Default Fat guy concealed carry

How does a fat guy actually conceal a revolver 3 inch on his person so as not to show an imprint? does anyone have a good idea?

An inside the waistband holster and a good belt will make it disappear quite easily ! Should not print at all.

Milt Sparks Holsters for some real nice leather ones which are very comfortable.

Big shirts that fall just below your beltline are easy to clear out of the way and provide excellent concealment. I wear logo hats, ostentatious sunglasses, funny tee-shirts, or anything that will draw the eye away from where I'm carrying.

It's not how big or small you are. Big people say it's hard to conceal because they are big, small people say it is hard because they are small.............. It's how you carry and how you dress that makes the difference.

BTW, it's not the barrel that prints,it's the grip.

Put an LCR in your pocket.

Speaking as a fairly fat guy, I like to stick my PF9 in my ass pocket. I have it in a pocket holster I built that has a flat piece of leather on the outside to keep it from printing like a gun. This worked great with my NAA Guardian, looked like a wallet, but with the PF9 it looks like I'm stealing a sawed off paperback novel. So I have to have a shirt tail or vest covering my pocket anyway. Today tried seriously drawing from it and the darn holster comes out with the gun 8 times out of 10. Going to have to make another one that doesn't fit quite so well.

I do sometimes and I also bought an OWB leather holster for it. It sits there perfectly unnoticable.

I use colorful key chain lanyard hung on belt loop opposite side of pants from carry to distract eyes of on-lookers...........

Bing one with no sharp edges, I carry the LCP in my right front pocket in a Nemesis, and a EMP 40 at 3:00 in a Crossbreed. They both hid well and feel great,
