    Rafter S Belt w/VMII

    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.

    though a little thick
    This is a good thing. That thick belt will keep the grip from leaning away from you.
    Adjusting the holsters position is not the easiest.
    This is also a good thing. If the holster were easy to move, you could find it doing it on its own.
    possibility of the snaps on the holster popping open
    Not going to happen. The snaps will only release if pulled from the top. You can tug all day from the belt side and it'll just make you tired.

    Enjoy your new belt!

    Remember you can buy 1.75 loops from Sparks for $15 if you think the 1.5's are too tight. Save you from buying another VMII unless it's for another gun.

    I like it. The price is very reasonable for shark.
