I carry one of my 1911s all day, everyday in a TTGunleather IWB. No problem with printing wearing just a loose shirt over it no matter which one I'm carrying.

I carried a full size 1911 in a IWB for 7 years on a daily basis and was around your same weight at the time. I didn't have any issues. Shoulder holsters are great in cold weather, but they aren't worth a hoot in warmer climates when you'd have to wear a vest to conceal one. I've worn a vest before and mighty as well have been wearing a bill board advertising that I was carrying a pistol. I got rid of all but one shoulder holster that I wear in the winter if it's cold enough for a heavy coat.

Got to agree with tmoore on this one. I myself am about 140. actually a few lbs lighter. but i carry a 92fs compact. not that much smaller than a 92 fs full. appendix carry is best way for me to conceal it. especially since its right in the front and who really looks at mans stomach during the day/night
