    Brommeland or Sparks. Both made to carry a heavy handgun and look good doing it.

    One of the sweetest gun belts I've ever seen is made by Gibson ProRodeo. Doggone can that guy Bruce made a leather belt about 10 times better than he can ride a bull.

    Not sure if he is taking any orders right now or not. Google search Gibson ProRodeo.

    Check your local phone book...the yellow pages. Look for leather shops, and get one custom made. I've had two made from a local shop. 3/16" thick, one 1 1/4" wide, and one 1 1/2" wide, double row holes. I supplied the stainless buckles. $20 each.

    My suggestion would be to make sure it's at least a double-layer belt. Leather works like plywood...multi-directional adds strength in all directions. You can have a belt made by a saddle maker that's 1/2" thick...it still won't hold a holster and gun properly. Nothing but mush after it breaks in.

    Also +1 on the Beltman.

    Just measure accurately and follow his directions or you will end up like me with a belt 2 inches too long; my fault for not following directions.

    Luckily he will shorten it for me if I send it back.

    I have gunbelts from
    5.11 Tac
    Looper
    &
    The Beltman.


    Every one of them has been worth the money I paid for it. - Not surprisingly, you get what you pay for.

    I wear the 5.11 on days I'm dressed down (working around the house, etc), the looper if I am more than casual, and anything where I want to look presentable, I wear one of the beltman (I have a standard 1.5 "bullhide, a dressier 1.25" horsehide, and a 1.25" black sharkskin that is absolutely great looking.)

    A good non leather one would be Wilderness Tactical. I have their frequent flyer belt and just love it.
