    Hanks Amish Gun Belts, are they any good?

    Hi I currently use an Uncle Mike's Reinforced Instructors belt it's 1.5" and has served me very well. I carry my M&P 40c daily with it. It's extremely rigid and supports a lot of weight very easily. My only complaint about it is when I use my CrossBreed Supertuck with a dress shirt tucked in the belt isn't exactly the most discreet in appearance. So I'm on the market for a nice leather gun belt but I don't want to spend an arm and a leg on one. Well I came up with this Hanks Amish Belts for CCW. They're $30 on sale right now and made in the USA. Anyone hear of these or have any experience with their products?

    Got any other options that won't drain my wallet for a decent quality belt?

    Thanks and God bless

    I've got one and it's a good belt. I suppose you could find a better one if you want to spend $75-100, but then you'd have to spend $75-100.

    Yeah I definitely don't want to spend $100 on one. Do you use this as an EDC belt? What type of firearm do you carry on it? How long have you had it? Thanks for the reply.

    I made my own beltfor about 40 bucks. I went to tandy leather and hand picked my belt , dyed it myself and I couldnt be happier. I EDC a Ruger SR40C both IWB and OWB.

    I thought they were excellent belts (they do work well), but once you try a real gun belt you'll feel the difference. FWIW, I liked my first Amish belt so much I bought another in brown - now they both hang on the belt rack and never get used.

    I went with Galco from Optics Planet and I'm very happy with that choice.

    Finding a good gun belt isn't easy with choices like nylon, leather, one piece leather vs. two piece leather. Then the prices varies a lot on nylon and leather belts. It's almost as much work as finding a good holster.

    You got that right! I found my favorite holsters after years of searching 1. Remora 2. Crossbreed Supertuck now to find a belt that is worthy but not $100!

    I use it every day, carrying either a Glock 30 or my 6906. Mine is probably two years old now. For thirty bucks it's worth a try. At worst you have a rugged casual belt for everyday use.

    I have one of these belts. It's pretty good but my Wilderness Instructor Belt is definitely better. I carry a Glock 19 in mine.

    Well I'm leaning toward the Galco SB3, but it's a little more than I was looking to spend. Well my birthday is just around the corner might have to tell the wife about this one. Thanks for the help with this everyone I appreciate your feedback.

    Tennessee Holster Company, run by Capt'n Itch! You'll want their regular leather belt (Heavy Leather Belt). I have one, but wanted a narrower belt (my dress belts were all 1.25" wide)....emailed them and they sent it right out!

    Now, Larry's a small operation, so you'll need to email him or his wife Isabel and let her know you want one a little narrower. They'll take your measurements and they're usually really fast.

    I wear both of my belts daily, and love 'em. They're thick, well made, look good, and were really well priced.

    I'm not Amish or anything but I think that is a common misconception about the Amish, they actually love guns! Lol! But I get what you mean it is still kinda funny!
