Over the years of reading websites like DefensiveCarry.com I have seen many discussions about gun belts and pretty much ignored them. AFter all I had a good Levi's belt that I bought at a local clothing store and it seemed to work fine. But over the past several months I had noticed some "slippage" when I was carrying in a Crossbreed Supertuck, which otherwise is a fine holster.
Finally after a few embarrassing moments during a trip to the mall that included sneaking behind a clothing rack to get the belt and holster back in place I decided it was time to take another look at those gun belt posts on this and a few related sites.
I eventually settled on Bullhide Belts (one of this website's sponsors but I am getting nothing in exchange for writing this review). When the belt arrived the other day I could immediately tell the difference in construction and weight compared to the off-the-rack one. This belt is sturdy, well designed and best of all -- it really holds the gun and holster in place! At $65 for a bullhide belt (free shipping) it was just $30 more than what I paid for the Levi's one.
The bottom line is if you're one of those folks who has bypassed those gun belt posts and decided to just get by -- take another look. The belt is JUST AS IMPORTANT as the holster. Pick whatever brand you want, do some shopping online, go to a gun show if you have to look at these belts but definitely do yourself a favor both for comfort and safety and GET A GOOD BELT.
