I run an AK and a VZ58 from time to time for a change of pace. Like others have mentioned the Tacos work great for that.
I stopped wearing a duty belt because it was uncomfortable and left bruises. I'm a wimp. I do like kydex and have a duty belt set-up using all kydex pouches and holster as well. For work I wear a 5.11 belt w/ kydex belt, no pouches normally.
The padded belt was pieced together from SKD for the most part.
