    How do you like it? How many holes do they punch in it? What is the spacing?

    I have one like on the far right in the link. It's a good belt with 8 holes on mine. While it may not be up to par with a $100 gun belt, it doesn't cost $100 either. My opinion is try one. If it doesn't work out for CC, you still have a nice heavy-duty casual belt.

    I got my first "gun belt" this year, it was a Bullhide Bullbelt. I thought the one I had was a tough belt for CC, but after the Bullbelt, I couldn't believe how stiff it was. It was black, so I needed a Brown one. I decided on the Amish belt, mainly based on price. It's a good quality belt with a simple design. It's better than my original belt, but not nearly as stiff as the Bullbelt. I have since ordered A Better Belt's "Perfect Belt" and love it. It is in the $100 range though, so if you don't want to spend a lot the Amish belt would be adequate. My Amish belt just hangs in the closet now, however. You get what you pay for nowadays.

    I do not have experience with Hanks Amish belt. I have had this "A Better Belt" for a few months. I think it's a great value at $59.95.

    I've had mine for about a year, it is a nice belt. It's seems like it's starting to stretch a little. I'm going to try to get another year out of it.

    Ideally I would like a belt that works well for under $40, I would go 10-20 higher if it's quite a bit better, but can't go as high as 100 right now.

    As a starter belt, and as long as you aren't trying to hand a big gun on it you should be OK. I carried for a while with my old regular leather belt, and the Amish belt is definitely an upgrade on that.

    My belt has eight holes Guessing they are a half inch apart. I will be buying more soon. The belt works fine for CC I carry a 30 ounce gun when fully loaded. I am happy with it.

    Dual layer double stitched gun belt

    Heres one that just over your price range but is stll under the $100 mark by quite a bit. The two layers will make it stand up to everyday carry much better that even the thickest single ply belt. This will support a full sized gun without streaching or bending for many years. That stiffness is what keeps the gun from moving when you run or reach. It will add to your comfort, and help keep it concieled by keeping the gun still. DR

    Is this one you own? What is the finish like, it's difficult to tell in the photo?

    It has a nice polished finish that has held up well. both are over 5 years old and worn daily. DR

    I have one. For the price it is a good belt. I have to cinch it a little tighter than some of my stiffer belts.
