    Gun belts hold up because they are essentially two belts sewn together. It is simply a matter of time before you have issues with a belt like this one.

    For another $25, you can have a wilderness instructors belt which I highly recommend if a leather belt (ascetically speaking) is not necessary. I have a Brigade gun leather and a Brommeland Combat dress belt, both over a $100 and will probably last forever, but I love the WIB. As stiff and more comfy because because adjustment is infinite. Your not limited to the 1" to 3/4" spacing of leather belt holes and we all know how beneficial that is after a meal LOL. Haven't been to TSC in forever, but its is nice to know there are other alternatives out there. Thanks and hope my .02 contributed.

    OH yeah, if that belt measures .250" thick, then its every bit as thick as my leather gun belts, so it should be good to go at a fraction of the cost! Great find. I just looked at the pics after my previous post.

    Yea, this belt is a single layer of leather. Big difference between a single layer 1/4 inch thick and two pieces sewn together to get a 1/4 inch. But it will probaly be fine for occassional use.

    I have two double thick bridle leather belts from Filson.com and even the single thick ones are good enough for some guns. The doubles
    will outlast me, no doubt! The doubles are about $70 and worth every penny: no need to spend over $100!!

    Hope yours last longer than mine did. I wore it everyday for about 6 months and it started getting limp in the middle. Would try to roll some if I put my S&W 625 on it. Wife and kids bought me a Instructors belt for Xmas for 40 bucks. It's the 5 stich and I'll never own another leather belt.

    Well it's been about a month and still going strong. I use it to hold up my 1911 Commander and a spare mag. Whether I carry IWB or OWB it does a great job. And I never said this was the end all be all of gun belts, I know that a "real" gun belt would be ideal. If I had my way I would have a Milt Sparks Holster and a $150 gun belt. But I have 4 kids, one about to start college, and one income. Maybe if Obama gets ousted from the White House I'll have more money to play with.

    I said it was a cheap alternative for those who are on a tight budget. I'd rather spend $20 on a belt and $80 on ammo to practice with ya know......One day I am sure I will buy a nice gun belt, but this one has done a good job of filling the gap so far.

    Thanks for the tip. I got mine at the TS in Springfield, IL. They only had one left in 40 (I'm working on that) otherwise I would have bought several. If I drop enough lbs. before we head back to FL. I go back and get a 38 or three to take back. My goal is to be able to wear a 36. If I make it I will buy a custom belt.

    Thought I would pop this up to the top for an update. Belt has broken in nicely and still works great. I lost a little weight so I had to add a hole between the first and second but other than that, it is great. Holds my 1911 commander and a spare mag great, no sagging whether I carry OWB or IWB. And I wear this belt almost everyday. It has held up beyond my expectations for a $20 belt.

    I bought the exact same belt as smolck (thanks, btw) and after sweating on it all summer, it's still like a hoop.

    As others have noted, it's not a double-layered stiched belt, but you will not find a stiffer single layer-stiched belt, especially for 20 bucks.
