I measured WAY wrong and ordered the wrong size belt from "The Beltman". It's a black 1.5 inch bullhide belt with the plastic stiffner and a chrome buckle. It has seven (7) holes. The 40 inch measurement is from the tip of the buckle to the middle or 4th hole. It's really nice and I do want to get another. Let my mistake be your gain! THIS BELT IS BRAND NEW. I WORE IT FOR ABOUT TEN (10) MINUTES TO SEE IF IT FIT. IT DOES NOT! I'm only asking to get back what I spent, minus shipping. I'm asking for $80.00 shipped. New, it costs $70.00 + $10.00 for the plastic stiffner. That's $80.00. Add in shipping and it comes to almost $90.00. Add a 3 week wait to that. For $80.00 you can have a BRAND NEW belt in a few days. I promise to ship it ASAP from time of payment. PROMISE. I'd also consider a stright-up trade for a Milt Sparks "Watch Six" for either a Glock 19 or a Glock 26, any color with 1.5 or 1.75 inch belt loops. Or a trade for another 1.5 inch Belt Man belt, Black or dark brown, size 42 or 43 (told ya I measured WAY WRONG!). I really prefer PayPal but a Money Order will also do. If using PayPal you will get your belt a lot faster. Thanks, John NO LONGER AVAILABLE!
