I need a new belt, and you all have talked me into getting a for-reals gun belt (or at least something custom made).
I also like to carry a lot of stuff with me. I already have pockets for wallet, pepper spray, flashlight, keys, knife, cell phone, notebook, glasses, and a pen when I have a shirt pocket, but I still want to carry:
- Full-sized pistol, IWB (tuckable)
- Extra magazine for pistol
- Extra battery for flashlight
- magnifying glass (I do photo restorations and need to inspect originals to give estimates)
What I'm thinking of doing is getting the Velcro liner on the belt and making my own Kydex, cloth, or leather 'mini holsters' for my bat-belt full of goodies: I have enough of an overhang to permit carrying lots of IWB stuff, and I wear suspenders so I won't lose my trousers. I like the Velcro trick and V-clips as it is less obvious that you're hiding something. (V-clips go over the slacks and behind the belt, with their hook Velcro on the outside so as to grab the loop Velcro sewn to the inside of the belt) Reckon I could get my local leather guy to make me a gun belt with the Velcro for a decent price, too.
