    Made The Decision to Get a Good Gun Belt. Advice or Recommendations?

    After searching the different forums and getting some advice, Iíve decided to purchase a good stiff belt to try before trading off my XD or purchasing more holsters. Iím looking for some advice on a good belt at a reasonable price. Iíve looked at the reinforced Wilderness Instructorís belts but have seen some comments that theyíre overrated. I also looked at a site called Beltman. I canít afford to spend too much and donít want to wait too long. Any suggestions or advice?

    Couldn't be happier with my decision to get a good belt; much more comfortable carry. Since I have a major problem with delayed-gratification, I got a "quick ship" belt fron the link below:

    Be sure to follow the maker's instructions on measurement, no matter who you choose.

    I'm pleased with the Wilderness Instructor belt I am wearing right now. It was reasonably priced, immediately available and most importantly offers superior support for my pistol when compared to the other belts I had on hand. It doesn't work in every situation but casual Friday with my shirt untucked it serves me well.

    +1. If your not going to tuck then the WIB is a great belt. Fast to get,good price and effective. My favorite feature is being able to fine tune the size to exactly where I want it.

    I use a wilderness instructor triple stitch. My local shooting range sells them for 43 dollars. I carry a full sized m&p 40 most of the time. I use a remora for it, sometimes I put on my galco king tuck, or when I want to oc I wear my black hawk serpa. The belt does great for me, I actually notice that the pants I'm wearing affects whether the gun is comfortable or not. The belt I have is the 1.5" one. I also carry a m&p shield in a sticky holster.

    I vote for wilderness instructor.

    What you can afford to spend and what a reasonable price is will of course depend on you. I can tell you that The Beltman product is excellent and worth the price in my opinion.

    I've been looking into getting one from comp-tac. Never used them personally or any, but the reviews are good. I have a CTAC from them and am looking into a MTAC. Quality of those are top notch imo.

    I spent $20 on a belt at Tractor Supply that appears to have some type of stiffener in it. Works awesome, looks good, and didn't break the bank.

    I wear a blackhawk cqb rigger belt and love it. I was having problems with my IWB comp-tac minotaur with my regular leather belt and someone suggested this belt and i cant say anything bad about it. Holds my glock 30 in the minotaur in the same position all day.

    I have a belt from CompTac, it's actually a second or blemish but I can't find anything wrong with it. It's comfortable and holds very well. I also have a 5.11 belt that I wear for work and casual wear, it's just as rigid and holds everything just fine. I do lean more towards the more adjustable belts like the wilderness or 5.11 because you can get the just right amount of fit you need for that particular day.

    I bought one from Comp-Tac and i love it. It has a kydex insert that reinforces the belt and keeps it nice and stiff. I carry a Glock-22 and it supports the fullsize very well. Pay attention to their sizing instructions though.

    Don't over look your belt. I started with a nice dress belt from Costco. After about 3 days it was junk. I got a 1 1/2" belt from Desantis. It has been with me for a couple months every day with no problems, very comfortable and allows me to have a secure fit. With this stiff "carry" belt I can draw smooth and fast. Its not all wiggly. Weather you purchase a leather or nylon belt make sure you get a belt designed for carry.

    My Beltman is awesome. The downside is that it is hard to find a belt holster with loops big enough to accept the thickness of the belt.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
