I have an N82 it fits fine.
I am 6ft 182 pds, still the holster will mold to your waist.
Check there return policy.
Comp tac has a good return policy.
I ordered the wrong paddle holster from them sent back no problem.

I'm 6/02, 245, and I have been using the Bianchi Model 135 Allusion for over 2 years now. Here's my review thread on it. When I wrote the review I was carrying a 40c, I have since started carrying a Shield 40 and have one for it as well.

I'm 6' @ 245lbs, Ive been using this... Holsters | Blade Tech Gun Holsters | Knives and Tactical Gear

Easy on, easy off and secure. I can wear it anywhere from the 10 oclock position to the 5 oclock position depending on what I'm doing.

I'm bigger than you and have no problem with IWB comfort. The key is wearing slightly larger pants. I've also found that positioning the holster at 3:00 helps.

For IWB carry, I praise Comp-Tac to everyone...

I prefer the Infidel with the typical clip and add the C-Tac strut as a second point of contact, then I add a piece of the rubber Talon Grip material to the inside for added traction.

The C-Tac is also a very nice piece. I have also heard people reversing the struts for a better ride.

At 5'8" and 265, I avoid the hybrid holsters (kydex body and leather against the body) because my mid-section collapses the leather into the kydex, making it difficult to re-holster.

My husband is a big boy (6'1" and pushing 300 lbs.) and he turned me on to N82 Pro holsters. I love them. Easy to put on and take off. Even though they only have one clip, I feel like they distribute the weight of the gun better than some 2 clip holsters I have tried. It is sweat proof and amazingly comfortable. I have never heard one complaint from someone who has worn them.

Foxx IWB about 3:30-4:00 with my 9mm shield. Nothing fancy, just a good gun/holster combo.

I find my Blade-Tech Klipt IWB holster to be extremely comfortable. It hugs the gun tightly and doesn't add much bulk at all. It rides close to the body and clips onto your belt with a nice single clip.

I carry appendix, but the single clip allows for carry at any position.

Good luck!

When I first started carrying concealed no holster was comfortable. I started eating healthy and exercising, lost 40lbs and now all holsters fit great on me. My wife still ribs me for using my carry pistol as a motivation to lose weight and not just to get healthy. Lol. Whatever works.
