I purchased a 1.5" Rafter S shark skin belt at the Dallas gun show yesterday. First of all, Steve & Della Schafer were fantastic. They were both very nice, and extremely helpful in choosing a belt. The belt is top notch, though a little thick. My Sparks VMII is a very tight fit on the belt. Adjusting the holsters position is not the easiest. My only concern is the possibility of the snaps on the holster popping open. I will update after wearing for a few days. I am also going to order another VMII, but made for a 1.75" belt. That being said, the belt is very solid, and quite comfortable.
