    Good Belt that doesn't have 30day wait?

    I know about the belt man and I have a belt on order. Now I want something in the meantime. Is there any good quality belt that doesn't have a 30day wait? I know the belt man is like a whole league above some other options, but is there something I can order and have shpped out immediately so I can use it?

    Ck Blackhawk. Very servicable and a good range belt if you get something fancier.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Do you have a link? Is it a blackhawk belt or is that the model? I can't find what you were talking about.

    Find a local leather shop. That's what I did. 10 miles away. Had my first one in two weeks, second one in three. 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" as specified to use my buckles.

    Well, I ordered a Belt man belt already. Kind of want something for the mean time that doesn't have to be super nice. Just enough to hold up a gun.

    a suggestion...

    Amish Made Leather Belts

    I have a few of these belts. You used to be able to order off the internet but my last two belts I called the order in. I believe they call the heaviest leather a "ranger" belt.
    My order last month came in 5 business days (maybe less) at a cost of $19.95 per each plus shipping.

    Good luck.

    Same here. Our family tradition of rope belts just don't cut it when it comes to puttin' it through the loops on a holster and gettin' it tied tight enough, it's just too much work!

    About how thick are the wilderness 5stitch instructor belts? It needs to be able to secure an MTAC which I have coming as well. The clips grab the underside of the belt.

    What size belt are you looking for? Any color preference? 1.25" or 1.5"?
    I may be able to help locate one available for immediate shipment for you.

    The best bet will be someone who carries them in stock such as all the above replies.

    Some may tell you that Looper Leather will have a turn around in 30 days or less but in my experience, it's a lie. That exact reason was why I chose Looper but I was extremely disappointed in their communication, the 7 weeks it took(rather than the quoted 2 I was told), and after voicing my dissatisfaction, I was ignored. I'd heard good and bad about them prior to my purchase but most of the bad was from years before in the archives and the recent posts were all very positive. Just be aware...
