I have had to trim mine a bit narrower than when it arrives from the factory. That makes it much more comfortable.
It doesn't have to be carried at the Noon position either. Spin it to 3:30-4:00 if you want.

There's nothing to be afaid of in that regard... as long as you gun isn't defective, that is.

If you don't mind others seeing or accidentally touching your gun while carrying concealed, then there are plenty of popular IWB holsers to choose from.

My recommendation is to carry appendix IWB. It will allow you to wear tighter fitting shirts. The j frames are perfect for this carry due to their length and grip shape. Any straight drop IWB will work. Try an Uncle Mikes clip on IWB holster since they're cheap. High Noon mr. Softy is a good one too. I currently use a Don Hume straight drop IWB with offset snap on belt loops. AIWB is the only carry that will not print when bending over or reaching up. It's better suited to those who are fit or have very little belly in the way. If you really want to conceal, try Barami Hip Grips. They allow IWB carry without a holster. Just fine for heavy DAO revolvers. My j frame has been carried this way for over 4 years. It's great when just wearing workout shorts or don't feel like wearing a holster.

Can you explain how an AIWB works when you need to tuck your shirt in and you absolutely can't have anyone tell that something is amiss?

You can use a MTAC neutral that allows shirt tucking for most handguns or the Barami gripped j frame can be tucked around. I personally don't tuck in my shirts so it's never been an issue. The times I have had to wear a tucked in shirt, it was for work and I wore a belt holster and wasn't concerned about concealment (I'm a cop).
