    Bruce Gibson Belt

    I have a review of not one, but two belts made by Bruce Gibson, a forum member.

    First off, let me say, I've known Bruce for almost twenty years and consider him more than a friend. We met in San Antonio, TX as we both used to ride four legged, snot slinging bovine critters.

    The Mahogoney Belt is for off duty carry of my S&W 22-4. I knew that such a big gun would need the utmost in a belt to support the weight of the gun. I've been using this belt for about six months off duty.

    Rest assurred, the stitching is first rate, and so is the tooling. I know from first hand expirience, if Bruce isn't happy with what he makes he will throw it in the trash and start all over. He doesn't scrimp to make a buck. He also gives a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, no questions asked.

    The Black Belt is for use under my Duty Belt, as an Inner Belt. It too is perfect. The Black Belt helps to support the weight of my Duty Belt and keepers are used to hang my Bianchi Duty Belt on my waist and keep it mated with my Inner Belt.

    Both belts are "double thick" and show meticulous attention to detail. I've used both my Matt Del Fatti Holster and Milt Sparks Holsters, along with my Rosen and even a Holster Bruce made for me with both belts and they work very well to support the weight that I put on them.

    I have not had any issues with dye staining my clothing, the belts stretching or the belt holes stretching out. All in all I'm very happy with the two belts he made for me and they are both holding up better than expected for "Hard Use".

    Here's a link to my belts on Bruce's website.

    Thumbs up

    He makes some of the nicest gun belts I've ever seen.
    Ya need a belt like that if you're going to carry a full size/full weight firearm. He obviously makes what is known as a lifetime belt.

    Thank you, Biker, MNBurl, and thank you QK. I've been making custom gear for rodeo cowboys for years, and the transition to making gear for other like-minded folks has been a natural fit.

    I'm both flattered and humbled by the kind words. Thank you, gentlemen.

    Darned good looking belts as everyone has said, Bruce. It's been a while since I visited your site and didn't know you were making belts. I might just have to buy one after we recover from Christmas....

    It would be a good move, IMHO.

    I compare my "Bruce" Belt to my Ted Blocker and Mitch Rosen Belts, and it's as good or better.

    I sure understand that! This time of year sure puts the meaning in "too much month at the end of the money."

    Here's a close-up of the Weaver buckle I've grown attached to. These things are stout.

    Thanks, Ben. No extra charge for 'em. The belt in the picture was a little unusual for me because most folks order the chrome (silver) brass buckle with the black belts. I like how the brass (gold) looks against the black.
