    Belt Suggestions

    Sorry in advance if this has already been addressed in a previous thread, but a quick search did not pull up anything too specific.

    My question is: can anyone recommend a good belt for both IWB and OWB carry that is at least somewhat sharp, economical, and provides good support, particularly for OWB.

    I carry a Ruger P95, which, although polymer framed, is still relatively heavy compared to some of the smaller guns.

    My belt is a Wilderness tactical. I got the one with extra stitching for some extra rigidity. I like the fact that it sinches up with no holes, and as far as good belts go, it is relatively inexpensive at around $40.

    Cabelas Double duty

    comes in black with a silver buckle, or brown with a bronze buckle. Double layer stitched, for about $40.

    Totally worth it in my book. Solid without screaming "GUN BELT" to the world. I wear it every day to my office

    Thanks, guys.

    I should also add that I would prefer something with a traditional stile "buckle;" ie: a pin through a hole in the belt. Also, leather would be preferred.

    I got an amish belt. I don't remember where from, but if you google it, I'm sure you will find it.

    It's thick, has a regular buckle, and looks pretty good. I like it and it was only about $35.

    I use the "Beltman" belt. The one made out of bulls hide that is much stronger than cows hide.

    I've had it for about a year and a half, it's my daily wear belt and it's FANTASTIC. This is my first gun belt and I can say that I most likely won't try anything else.

    1 1/2 inch at Walmart for $12 has worked very well for me while I am trying different carry methods. You might also want to check out the Western Wear store for a more classy belt but for more $$.

    I love my Belt Man belt as well. Well worth the 80 bucks.

    i have a cheap leather belt from kohls and a good leather belt from the local gun shop. i grab the belt from the gun shop when carrying. i wear the cheap belt to work. (cant carry at work). i read on here many times a good belt makes concealed carry more comfortable. its true. the good belt was worth the 80 dollars. the cheap belt doesnt hold the gun tight, sags, just not comfortable, especialy for iwb carry. spend the money on a good belt, otherwise you may end up buying 2 belts.

    Any local gun shows? Sometimes you can find a local doing it a bit cheaper. I have heard nothing but good stuff about beltman, and it's on my list of wants. But a 5.11 nylon instructor is filling the role nicely right now. A good belt makes a big difference. My cheap leather one seemed like it stretched several inches from carrying daily. I might be exaggerating, but it was not that big when I bought it! Maybe a nylon belt to use now and as a backup while you save for a nice one.

    Maybe check this site out. I have the holster on order already but one of these is next for me. Heavy duty, about 1/4" thick ought to hold your heavy gun nice and snug. Gun Belt

    5.11 makes a good leather reinforce belt for around $49.00 or less. sometimes you can find them on line for around $20.00 or lower each. i have found that they hold your gun well, just as well as the $80.00 dollar belts.
