Gun belts are usually thicker and stiffer and some have stitching or liners that help stiffen them, so they don't sag with the gun. Personally, I never buy "gun belts" even for competition. I look for a thick, leather single-layer belt (even some "gun belts" are crappy stitched layers that afll apart). I can get one at Tractor Supply that will work better than a high dollar belt from Galco or Bianchi. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
