Colt Defender, .45. Thinking about a Springfield XDE in 9mm because of lighter recoil.

I would think a big guy could conceal a Defender or other 3" 1911 easily.

I would think that if you were big it'd be easier to conceal. I guess I'm wrong.
Nope not wrong. I used to be 350 lbs and could hide an AR pistol easily, LOL. At 225 ish I can still easily ccw a G 17 or full size 1911. I carry the G17 often. This said a shield or small revolver is much easier.

Carrying concealed is a commitment not an exercise in clothing accessories. You dress from the beginning with the intention to carry a weapon not throw on a IWB on your way out the door. It requires a proper Holster belt and clothing sizes along with clothing types colors and styles. Certain colors and fabric types hide any unintended bulges better than others. XLT shirts are always required as is a size larger.

I have a Colt and Rock Island 3.5" officers size 45 that i carry on occasion.
I prefer the Rock Island over the colt.
When I was starting out I carried a Rock Island 5" 38super.

Now it's usually a SIG p239 in 357 sig and the 45s when I want to change it up.

Don't worry. They're still Browning style recoil actuated tilting barrel handguns.
