    The Beltman

    Just wanted to give a plug for The Beltman. I ordered myself a belt on Christmas day and received it in the mail today. Very short period of time, especially if you consider the holidays! The belt is of very good quality, very stout :) and well made. Thanks!

    Yep! Jim makes a very nice belt. He seems like a really nice guy, too.

    As I've never done this before I'm not sure if it's going to work. Or if the pictures are going to be very good, I have a cheesy old digital camera. But attached should be two pictures of my spiffy new belt from the Beltman and my Advantage Arms .22 conversion for my Glock 23 that just came today.

    :)

    Not downposting any other belt maker but

    I ordered the real best quality gunbelt IMHO http://www.brommelandgunleather.com/

    If someone anyone reading this post orders one from him and it fails to stand up to every type of carry that they can dish out.
    I will eat the belt.

    Cool! I ordered one from him on the day after Christmas!
    Judging by your post, I should receive mine anytime!

    I really like to see on the body pics of holsters belts ect. It gives me a much better idea of how it will ride and if it is something I would be interested in trying. Just saying this for holster makers, the sight listed above has a real nice IWB holster pictured on the body I can see that it fits snug to the body yet doesnt look uncomfortable. However none of the other holsters are pictured on the body unless I missed something. they all look like great holsters! wish I could try some on. Just a suggestion.

    Many Thanks Trigger

    Thanks, thats what I was looking for. I have read alot about a good gun belt being 2 pieces of leather mated together. Can you notice a division in the leather across that .25"s where it is obvious that 2 pieces of leather were sewn together? (making it double thickness)

    Thanks again.

    Very thin line.
    not obvious at all.
    This belt is put together very nice.
    I will not go back to a dress style belt.
    Worth the extra $

    Jim Speidel, www.thebeltman.net, offers some very nice gunbelts at very reasonable prices.

    In addition to what is shown on his site, he offers a horsehide outer/bullhide inner belt, as well as shark/bull and elephant/bull options.

    He'll also add a thin piece of plastic reinforcing between the layers, a la The Wilderness CSM belts for $10 and, if you prefer the 3/4" spacing, 7 hole design, that is available as a free variation [over his regular 1" /5 hole spacing].

    I have an 1.25 wide dress belt that is part of my Sunday-Go-To-Meetin' get-up, along with a horsehide straight drop A-IWB holster and a Kramer mag pouch.

    Those options would be for looks? They wouldnt have any effect on the stiffness/durability of the belt would they?

    Generally, shark,elephant and horse are regarded as as stronger than cow or bullhide for a given weight. For most, it's simply a matter of pride of ownership and having a more distinctive belt.

    I've had a hankering for an elephant hide belt for a while.
