    Galco makes great belts. That said, I recently ordered a Beltman too! I don't think the cowhide/bullhide difference is going to be a big deal. Both companies are great -Beltman just specializes in belts so I go to the specialist.

    I have a couple Galcos and if you want the same quality as Beltman, the Galco you want is $100.00 not the $59.00 one!

    I have a Galco SB3 dress belt that I wear all the time with khakis and polo shirts. It also fits right in with slacks and a dress shirt. So if that's the kind of situation that you need a belt for I highly recommend it. I can't imagine a custom belt being better in finish, quality or appearance for this purpose.

    I also ordered a Crossbreed belt. It's really nice. But, I wore it with the regular clips that come on the Supertuck & immediately ruined it. The clip scratched it up really bad...probably had pressure on it from the car seat. I've heard the same thing from others.

    I ordered a Beltman after doing allot of research.. From what I find there isn't anything that compares,.. If you want a cheaper belt that will last for a time,. The Glock Store has a Kevlar lined belt for $35,.. It does a good job, but does start to break down in time.. Regular belts last a couple months and don't hold well, the Kevlar one holds better, but still don't hold up great,. I'll be interested to see how long the Beltman holds up.. From what I hear, it is the best..

    I just received the shark skin Beltman belt I ordered about 8 weeks ago as a gift from my better half. It looks like it'll last forever; I just hope my current waist size lasts as long.

    Jim (the beltman) lives and works in my home town and his wife and mine know each other through small business networking. We were honored with a tour of his facility and his operation is top notch. It's just the three people on his website making the best belts available as efficiently as they can. They're all super nice and funny to boot.

    I have a Beltman, and it is an excellent belt. However, it does not fit my Sparks Axiom. Others may not have that problem, but that is my experience. As a result I have a Sparks belt on order.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Somewhere, I think I read Beltman doesn't charge your credit card, till he cuts the belt out. Is this correct? My 40 days were up Tuesday. I checked my credit card account, and he charged my account along about same time. I'm anxiously waiting. How long does it take him to make it after cutting it out?

    He doesn't charge the card until he's ready to cut the hide so that you can make changes to your order up to that point. I recall him telling me it takes about three days to make the belt, but please remember that's not an official answer.

    Rumor has it that the Gunner's Alley belt is a Beltman and I bought it for $60 from them. I am very impressed with this belt. No idea on Galco. Gun Holsters and Shooting Accessories at Discounted Prices. Don't be surprised if you want 5-6 weeks for your belt. Worth it IMO.

    I thought I read somewhere that the GA belt was acutally by Don Hume

    This is true. Gunner's Alley sells a very limited (though popular) style of Beltman-made belts under the GA name. If they happen to have what you want, then it's a great buy.

    I'll also take this time to plug Gunner's Alley in general. I've been in their shop a number of times and they've always been very friendly and helpful.
