    Reading your earlier post I am not sure you will be happy with a Beltman belt or any other belt. Your dislike of clothing will definitely cause chafing from the belt. It is also not a pretty picture of you without clothing and wearing a gun belt.

    The thing that makes an expensive gun belt so reliable is the fact that it is a double layer product. You can have a single thickness belt 1/4" fat, and it will not provide the strength of a good double, which acts like plywood. You get multi-directional strength in a thinner belt.

    Well, a good belt will last years, I know mine do. So... think about it, how long of a test will you need?

Rather spend the extra $70 on ammo, or magazines, or the lottery.
    Good call!

    I'm from PA so I get my belts from the amish and they seem to hold up pretty well.

    I have two Bulman belts with the plastic insert. They are tough and beautiful. I did pay something like a C note for each one......

    I looked at the Amish leather belts on ebay. They are made from one piece either 10 oz or 12 oz leather. I do not know how thick that is, but it is much thicker than the belts sold in Walmart.
    I suspect it is thick enough for anything except a full size 1911, and it might be OK for that for awhile.

    I am not saying that the double layer belts are not worth it, but if one wants a belt today and for about $25 shipped they appear to be a bargain.

    Best,
    Jerry

    might be worth a look at High Noon belts,b4 you buy.I ordered last Tuesday night,like around midnight,had the belt Thursday evening.It was a stocker. I think the thing will last a long time.It definitely has the feel of top quality. ... Carry ok.
