    Because I would like to try one on with my EDC IWB. I like to shop before I buy. I would not buy a gun online without handling it first. Shoes are the same way, fit differently. You can't judge quality online.

    Gun belts are hard to find locally... well, for me anyway. Closest I could find was a Tractor Supply store... still have it, and it works well, but they stopped selling them which is when I went to Hanks, and probably always will - they have a size guide on their site to help you get the right size the first time using your existing belt.

    I like my beltman belt. A gunbelt makes a huge difference and you can get a starter Gun Belt without breaking the bank. After you see the difference that it makes you can then look for a better one

    I use a UBG belt, and a couple of his holsters, he does some fine work, and right now he has elephant available, not sure but would think that would make an awesome belt.

    Gun belts are much like cigars, dogs, bourbon & wives. There's few things in this life worse than a BAD one & few things better in the world than a GOOD one! Trust me, once you enjoy the difference, you will NEVER go back.

    Not to be anti American but I got a hand made leather belt while on vacation in Mexico for 10 bucks. It is the best belt I own.
    My DeSantis belt is a close second but that one was over 50 bucks.

    Although I have a 5.11 and a few similar belts, I have 2 Galco belts that I have had since I was a cop. One is close to 10 years old and is nearly in the same shape as the day I got it. With the amount of use I put my gear through that really says a whole lot.

    Totally agree with you . Been through several that I THOUGHT were good belts. Just recently, I also purchased a belt from Bullhide Belts. Spent a little more 75$ shipped and received it in 6 days. Great product and would encourage everyone to check out their product line.

    $75 belt? No thanks. I only paid $45 for a leather holster.

    The point is, you can get gun belts that do the job a lot cheaper than $75, whereas $45 is pretty much rock-bottom for a leather holster. Apples vs. apples please.

    Ok, I'm convinced. Just ordered a "ready to ship" belt from The Beltman.

    I have two Wilderness Instructor 'stiffened' nylon belts that have done a great job if a nylon belt fits in to where you have to visit or work. About $50. IWB and paddle-type holsters are well supported by this belt.
