    Gun Belt Recommendations

    I finally received my SC permit last Friday. After walking around with my Walther PPS .40 for a few hours I realized that my belts would not be up to the task of supporting my pistol.

    Does anybody have any recommendations on a casual gun belt that won't break the bank? I would prefer any that are 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" in width. Thanks for your input.

    I bought 2 511 leather GBs for $5 each (closeout). They were XL (40"-42") and I needed a L (36"-38") so I took them to a leather shop and had them shortened 4" for $10 each.

    Leather Casual Belt - 1.5" | Belts | 5.11 Tactical

    Total value as I now have 2 $15 double thick reinforced GBs for $30...and they perform just great.

    I will use these until my TT GB comes in.

    If you want cheap try LA police gear. They've had sales where you buy a pair of pants and get a free 1.5 inch belt. Might not be as nice as a Beltman but you can't beat the price. The belt isn't bad. I use it regularly. I like the pants also.

    The 5.11 belts are plenty stiff with the kydex insert. Used one for a year and It gave me good service, bought new on e-Bay 10$ shipped. The bad thing about the 5.11 is they have this rubber coating that they cover the kydex edges with and it peels off easily. I used a sharpie to cover those areas.

    I now carry with the Crossbreed belt. It's not quite as stiff as a Bullhide Beltman but it's very well built with Chicago screws that hold on the buckle making it interchangeable. I bought it from Marks (owner of Croosbreed) blem sale for $40 shipped. I would not hesitate buying another at full price... very nice quality product. IMO

    This photo shows the rigidity of the belts. Disregard the flat e-Bay junk waist of $30.

    I might have to check out that crossbreed belt. Personally I like the plain design.

    Ive found Bianchi gun belts to be very good and reasonably priced. Also every CCW holder should have a Wilderness belt. They are great. Get a five stitch Instructor belt for about $40.00.

    The Beltman can't be beaqt for quality. I have one in black and brown. Not the cheapest but top notch. Don't go cheap on carry rig equipment.

    Check out the forum sponsors first. I just picked up a High Noon belt. It carries the weight of a heavier pistol really well.

    The Crossbreed belt is very ordinary looking, doesn't scream gun owner, the logo is stamped on the inside. The belt is 1/4" thick and 1 1/2" wide. Very well made and holds my GLOCK 19 in its Crossbreed Supertuck all day damn near every day.
