Options on Belts

Like holsters, I have a "bunch" of belts from different makers. All are good as they are made to carry the weight of a gun. Take your pick and price.

For options, which I think was your question - the best for me is the 7 hole 3/4 inch spacing; for Sunday I have a Beltman in black that is tapered - 1.25 in the front and 1.5 for the rest of the belt; from the front it looks like any other dress belt but fits the belt loops where the gun rides.

Jim (Beltman) has spoken about retiring - not sure if he is serious but he is a great guy to deal with. There is another guy in NC who makes excellent belts at about 2/3 the price of Beltman. Jerry Bissell in Mt. Airy, NC. I believe he has a website but I do not have a link here.

No matter whose belt you buy, a quality gunbelt is an investment and should be treated as such. Be sure to follow the makers recommendation for how to measure and, for IWB the 7 hole option is essential.

I can only relay what I've read on the internet, which confirmed personal experience. I had a good single ply belt from a pretty reputable leather manufacturer (at the time). It lasted me almost 3mo, before it literally snapped. It started going limp right at 2 months. I'm pretty sure I could have sent it back, and the guy would have worked with me on another belt, etc, but I just wasn't to happy with it (it was a nice belt to look at, but that was about it).

Whatever size your holster takes.

1.5 is the most common.

I have a problem with delayed gratification, so I got a quick ship belt from the above. Very happy, had it for 18 months and will order a custom model soon.
The Beltman has a quick ship section also. The prices are about the same. The Beltman does have an extended selection of material, ie Elephant, Shark, etc. at a higher price of course. He also has the ability to press patterns into the belt, ie basket weave and horse floral etc.

I agree whole-heartedly with those statements. I've had holsters that I used with an older gun belt. (since that belt was new) Once I got the belt described in my earlier post I realized that holster/old belt combination wouldn't cut it any more.

It wasn't that the old belt wore out, it was just made differently. The new belt is much stiffer because of the horsehide and the top and bottom edge is more square, plus it's a true honest to goodness 1.5" belt.

Here ya go, great bargain. They even have some of last year's models at half price if you've got a larger waist. I think you need to add about 3 or 4 to your waist size.

A belt that lasts a decade or so.

Either Ares gear or jones tactical works great with the cobra buckle. Easy to do when it's time to do your business. Beltman from what I am always told is the way to go for leather.
