    I recommend The Belt Man belts. I have 2 from him - a bullhide and a sharkskin. The both perform very well, and I expect I will get another sometime soon.

    Thanks for all of your input.

    I have decided to go for the Beltmans 1.5 inch Bullhide belt.

    Now for the money question. Should I go with or without the stiffener? Any downsize with the stiffener?

    In doing my research, here's what I found out from several people who have a large holster/belt box...

    The Belt Man horse hide is generally thinner & stiffer than the bullhide. It is also stronger without a stiffener than the bull hide is with a stiffener.

    If you go with the horse hide without stiffener, it is only $10 more than the bull hide with the stiffener.

    I like my Wilderness Instructors belt, but LOVE my Belt Man belt!

    The Belt Man horse hide is my #1. I have had it for 1 1/2 years and love it.

    I currently have two Beltman belts... different colors. I'm sure I will adding another in the next year or so... excellent quality and craftsmanship... the first one is 3 or 4 years old now and I still wear it on a regular basis.

    One of the ultimate leather gun belts is being made by Gibson ProRodeo but, I just checked and Bruce is not accepting any new belt orders right now.
    I guess he is booked solid.

    I went with the Horse hide belt from Beltman, without the stiffener, size 39 with 7 holes, black belt with black belt buckle.

    I really hope I don't put on to much weight. I want this belt to last.
