Just a note for any of you who might be struggling with the "Do I really need one of those belts?" question. I'm a big guy...6-2 270 lbs. Carry a full size aluminum frame 1911 in a Sparks VM-II. I've always used suspenders to help carry the load of the gun / holster. With a cheap belt alone; I was constantly hitching up my pants...not good if you are trying to remain discreet.
I finally bought a good gunbelt. (Beltman) Now I no longer need the suspenders. It's obviously much more comfortable without them; and I no longer have to worry about looking like a low-water pants gang banger.
Good luck to all. Stay safe and concealed.
