    Need a belt - don't want to wait 12-18 weeks

    Does anyone know of any distributors/dealers that stock quality leather gun belts? Or a gun belt manufacturer that doesn't have a 12-18 week wait?

    I've talked to several, including Milt Sparks, Lou Alessi, Lightning Arms, etc.

    I want a quality belt, 1.5", black, pre-curved.

    Thanks.

    Are his belts pre-curved? I've been on that site before but saw no mention of it. Seems like I sent an email asking, but didn't get a response.

    I got mine at www.mypolicestore.com and they were Akers B21 gun belts. They look like normal casual or dress belts but are mega re-enforced. around $38 - But I didn't realize the K & D made them - my next ones would go to him (sight unseen) he is that good!

    Thanks for the recommendation, gentlemen.

    TradeSniper,

    My belts are cut on a straight line, rather than the contour like you are looking for.

    Good luck in your search.

    Trade_Sniper,

    Are you abolutely locked into a contoured belt?

    Rafter S makes an awesome straight gun belt, not expensive & fast service.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    IIRC, Dillon (Blue Press) has outsourced it's gun leather and holster accessories. At least that's what I've heard.
