    Belt for CC

    I'm sure this has been discussed previously but I'd like to get a fresh view on it. From old threads you can't tell if people have changed their minds or tried new products over time.

    Anyways, I'm looking for a good solid gun belt. Currently I use a heavy-ish single ply no name leather belt. I've been running it for a good 5 years with no complaints. It has actually suprised me with how well it works when I CC. As my name implys, I conceal an XDm in a Comp-Tac Minotaur MTAC and am VERY pleased. So far I've really only considered the kydex reinforced belt by Comp-Tac because I'm so impressed with their holster. When I find a company that does something right, I tend to stick with it. So what else is out there? What do you all here employ as your belt for CC work?

    I was just looking around the site and realized my post is in the wrong spot. Would a moderator mind moving it to the Gear and Equipement section?

    I have one from Custom Gun Belts, Custom Leather Belts from A & G Custom Gun Leather I like it and will be buying another from him. If you special order one get it with 7 holes instead of 5. The 7 holes are spaced 3/4 inch apart, the 5 holes are 1 inch apart.

    Care needs to be taken when buying these extra thick gun belts that they are compatible with your holster. Beltman and Comp-tac belts are both too think and wide to fit many holsters.

    Sometimes a little bit less belt may be a good thing unless you are ordering both the holster and belt from the same maker.

    My favorite belts are Kramer, Comp-tac, and Looper.

    I use the Comp-tac belt. Haven't tried others, but the comp-tac is great so I haven't had a need to try anyone elses. You'll get lots of good recommendations here though.

    I've got the black one with the silver buckle from Gunners Alley. Gunners Alley brand belt, not the Don Hume brand. I'm happy with it. Double layer, nice and thick and solid. Only problem I had was one of the two screws that hold the buckle on, backed its way out and I almost lost it. I put some blue locktite on the threads and put it back together. I haven't had a problem with it backing out since then.

    Both are awesome belts.

    I've had two comp-tac belts, and both are great.

    The reason I've had two is because of the way they size. I expected to buy a belt with one notch bigger, and several notches smaller, and I got it exactly backwards. They are longer than they seem like they should be. If you are in doubt, measure your waist, with your IWB holster on if you wear one, and contact their customer support.

    I've never dealt with a company that had more responsive and friendly support. I've had two holsters and two mag carriers from them as well. If you have Comp-tac holsters, you might know something about it.

    I would, but that would still be incorrect... but now its not- I moved it.

    For the belt, I've been using the High Noon rock steady for a good while now. I have zero complaints, and it supports the weight of everything up to my P220 or a TRP operator (heavy gun). I've let several friends borrow it for a day or two and each one has bought one of their own after I made them give mine back.

    Belt from Beltman, carry in a Comp-tac Minotaur with C-clips and never had any problems.

    Thing I liked about Beltman (perhas others do this, too) is that you could order with the holes closer together.
