    Beware.
    Same sizes for me. I don't mind having a couple or three inches too much and when I wear some holsters the middle hole is exactly right.

    Good advice. When I ordered mine I rounded up a bit just in case.

    Just got mine today, and my IWB Side Guard Holster slipped in nicely buckled at hole 2 and didn't feel cramped at all. Hole 3 would have been perfect had I not gained some weight over the last month, so I think once I lose it I'll be back to normal (hole 3). Mountain biking season is right around the corner!

    No sweat, losing it will be a piece of cake. OH ME! Did I say "cake?" Might as well have some ice cream with it.

    Best,

    My belt is due any day now if the 30 days stated for delivery holds up.

    I ended up calling him just to verify that I was measuring correctly. His suggestion was that since I did not have a holster yet, to wrap my gun in a thin magazine (or pamphlet) then stuff it in my waistline, adjusting the belt for comfortable carry. This method yielded a measurement three Quarters of an inch longer than the original correctly carried out measurement.

    My waist is 34ish my order was for a 39, I wear a 36 belt normally.

    The fit issue is tough to guestimate I suppose with so many variables; gun thickness, holster thickness, preference for how tight the belt is worn, breakfast size, flatulence, etc...

    I figure that with 7 holes I will find a niche.

    I ordered mine I added 2" and got the 7 hole version. Figured that way I can still fit it if I continue to gain a little weight, and should be ok whether I do or don't.

    Hopefully it will be waiting on me when I get home from work in 3.5 weeks. And if I'm lucky my CB super tuck will be there also.
