This is a discussion on Anyone use a blackhawk pistol belt? within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I just ordered one of Blackhawk's CQC Pistol Belts . I got it for $33 shipped from OpticsPlanet.com . Anyone else have one? How do ...
I have a 1.5" one in the "carbon fiber" finish. So far (about a year), it has been excellent. Not as pretty as a fine leather gunbelt, but thin, sturdy, durable, and well suited to its purpose (and a half to a third the price of good leather). I wear it as a dress belt with suit and tie and it blends in well. In short - I like it. Please let me know how you like yours after you get some carry time under your, ahem, belt.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
The belt arrived today. If I paid the $60 MSRP, I would be disappointed. But, for $33 it's nice enough.
It's really just a single molded piece of plastic with a buckle. It's not fake leather or anything like that.
It looks plenty sturdy to hold up my OWB holster though.
Overall (having not yet carried a gun on it) I'd give it a 7.5 out of 10.
