    Going a little bit crazy....waiting for my belt.

    So I ordered a belt from the Beltman on June 3rd. They say most orders are shipped within 30 days of the order being placed. Well, tomorrow is 30 days, and I am antsy. I know it's hand made, and these things take time, blah blah. Bottom line, I want my belt, and I am impatient.
    Can somebody who has one tell me a story about how wonderful your Beltman belt is, so I can live vicariously through you?

    I've found that if you use a length of 1/2" cotton rope for a belt (like Jethro), when your new one arrives, it is like a piece of heaven!

    Keep that to yourself---otherwise it may disqualify you for your permit.

    When it arrives the wait will have been worth it. I ordered one and waited and once it arrived and I found out just how much a quality belt does to add comfort to CC I recently ordered another to wear to work.
    They ARE worth waiting for and I think you'll look back on the wait as a worthwhile investment.

    +1, the belts are great! I just ordered another one yesterday. I have been wearing my first one for about 2 years and it still looks new and functions great. Just think, it could be as bad as some holster makers as far as wait times.

    I believe that all of the holster and gun belt makers are busy and running behind because of the flood of new CC permits - which is a good thing!
    God bless our troops!

    Jim makes great belts and does well with timely deliveries. Your's should arrive any day now and you''ll be well pleased when it does. I've got two of his belts so far and need at least one more for khakis.

    My last belt was a little of the 30 day period but worth the wait.

    Fatboy, that's a great looking belt for being two months old, let alone two years. Makes me more convinced I chose wisely. I would guess from your screenname, that you are cornfed, like I am. I tend to wear belts out pretty quickly. Did you get the internal stiffener on your belt, or is that one just the leather?

    I think the Rafter S belts look nicer. Sure both function equally well. I got lucky when I ordered mine - they had it in stock.

    35 days from order to my doorstep, as of today. FWIW, for those still waiting. :)

    I waited 10 weeks for my Rafter and also was told it was a 30 day wait. Maybe yours will come closer to the 30 day mark than mine.
    Mine was worth the wait , I am sure yours will be also.
