    Ripped belt loops?

    Anybody having problems ripping belt loops off of their pants? I've done it at least 3 times in the last six months. It's happened with either a XD45c or and XD9sc in a MTAC Minotaur and a spare magazine on my weak (left) side. All have been on the weak side around 8 o'clock. Any ideas?

    Tighten your belt and quit hauling up your pants by the loops. I'd be willing to bet you adjust your slipping pants fairly frequently. My solution would be a tighter belt.

    I had the same problem, so I sew some reinforcement when I buy them.

    What kind of belt are you using? A stiff gun belt will distribute the load more.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    What he said. If you dont have the funds for a nice gun belt, a wider belt will also help.

    As others have posted, a good quality dual layered gun belt will do the trick. And don't adjust your holster or pull your pants up using the loops.

    I use a Don Hume gun belt and it has been a huge difference over my previous store bought belt. I try not to adjust my pants but I'll make a more conscious effort and see what happens. Thanks guys.

    Is it the gun that is tearing the loops?

    Do you have the top of the holster set down inside the belt line on your pants where when you put the gun in and out of the holster your rubbing the gun against your pant line where the belt loop attaches? If this is the case you could be putting undue stress on the belt loop. If top of the kydex on the holster is just above the pant line you will only rub on the kydex and not the pants and not run the risk of tearing the loop stitching.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Its not from the gun or holster. Its been happening on my weak side in the general area of my mag carrier. I'm thinking it might me pulling on my belt if/when I have to adjust my pants. It might be the pants I wear too as they are from Kohl's and I don't think they are really made to stand up to harder usage.

    They hook to your belt instead of your pants, making a unit. Wear them under your cover shirt and nobody will ever know.

    +1 for the suspenders. They make a big difference.

    Cheap thread + cheap material + cheap third-world labor = ripped belt loops.
