I am not a large build, but I could never get comfortable with IWB, no matter what I tried. So I now carry daily OWB in a StealthGear, and its not hard to conceal at all, and never even notice its there....But the key to that is a quality holster, and a quality gun belt...

Same here. I have, over the last decade, made a real effort to invest into good holsters, good gun belts, and the right collection of cold and hot weather clothes to properly conceal and carry comfy.

Indiana is an open carry state, but still prefer to conceal about 95% of the time. Now with all the right gear and clothes, I can hide a pretty large gun under there!

If you are looking for a high quality gun belt, I can't say enough good things about the Fatboy Belt by Two Fools Leather Goods. It's a bit pricey, but it will last you the remainder of your life. Also the integrated non-buckle clasp is the most comfortable thing ever. If your like me, the buckle can cause soreness to your overhanging stomach. This belt eliminates that completely. I also had a metal allergy to the buckles on my old belts which is a moot point with this one. There a several YouTube videos about this belt too. Get the XXL for a thicker belt or if you need larger than a 66, jump to the XXXL. They will be releasing handmade leather holsters soon too.

I used to be a diehard leather holster guy, but once I tried a kydex IWB holster I was hooked. I got this Concealment Express holster for Christmas and it is really comfortable to me. It won't break the bank either at under $40.

I had to send my 9c back to S&W so I have been carrying a full size 2.0 in a super tuck.

I'm 6'0" and 225# with a bit of an overhang and I can wear this holster all day long. Granted, I have the President Trump model, but your political leanings may go toward the black or carbon fiber black versions. ;^)
