    If you go for a track belt make sure you get one specifically made for gun belt use (internal stiffener). For example, Kore has two versions and specifically tells people not to use the cheaper normal belts to carry guns because they'll wear out quickly. There are several nice things about these track belts, such as how quickly they adjust, the small increments in adjustment, and they don't scream "tacticool" since they look like a normal dress belt.

    My Kore gun belt is used daily as my belt, gun or not, and carries most of my guns well. But, my SRH .44 mag and all steel full size 1911 carry better on slightly more beefy belts. For most of my Tupperware or compact pistolas the track belt works fine.

    So bottom line, for your heavy armaments you'll prefer a more robust belt.
    I've been looking for a new dress belt, thanks!

    No difference in support between my P320 or P229 Stainless Elite, that weighs in at nearly 50oz loaded. Love my Bigfoot.

    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    Ordered a Bigfoot a few months back, during a $10 off sale. Have not regretted it.
    BTW I do believe Bigfoot and Alien Gear belts are the same.

    Here is my preliminary thinking, all of this have a "Quick Ship" Option:

    Beltman: Pro: Known to me, Full Grain Leather, Roller Buckles, Poly Core Additional $$, Price, Stitching Submerged; Con: Poly Core Extra

    Bigfoot Belts look really nice. PRO: Steel Core, Roller Buckles, Full Grain English Bridal Leather, Stitching Submerged, Price; CON: Steel Core makes TSA PITA

    Kore: Pro: Poly Core, Almost Infinite Adjustment, Fashionable and Dressy if Needed, Stitching Submerged, Price, Buckle Pulls Off for TSA; Con: Is Leather Vegetable Tanned? Leather not Full Grain


    Share your thoughts!



    The more I study leather, the more I am leaning to a Bigfoot. I have a lot of bridle leather around here, and saddles, and like really nice leather. I've had belts by Brommeland, Beltman, and those are all Full Grain. Prior to that, all of my belts were full grain bridle quality.

    If Full Grain leather is properly cared for (actually pretty easy) it lasts forever, and looks better every year.

    That thought had never occurred to me. I very rarely travel by plane so I guess it slipped my mind. But that is certainly a good CON for Bigfoot.

    Edit, Just ordered me a Bigfoot.

    That's an excellent thought!

    I would still wear the belt for the holster but would not need to cinch it up so tight. Big time THANKS FOR THAT!

    As to the Bigfoot and the airport - 2 replaced knees, Stainless steel in my chest. TSA is always a pain. They made us remove belts for a while although I have the express card but even with that I have to go through the scanner. They just like to admire my 65 year old beat up body. I'm sure all the young ladies fight over getting to the front to see my old fat mishapen glory.

    What else might you suggest?
    For weight loss eat only meat, fish, eggs & vegetables + 2 quarts of water a day. That means no grains & sugar. You'll be amazed at the results.

    I'm a new Kore customer. I am blown away at the quality and ease of adjustment of these belts. I will admit it only has to carry my SR9c and an extra mag, but it is perfect for that. I just love the ease of adjustment whether bigger or smaller. I cinch it up when going out and relax it after a nice supper.

    Oh, forgot to mention, the veggies should be a minimum quantity...no more than a cup, since they contain some carbohydrates. Eating primarily protein will force the body to get the carbs from the stored fat you are carrying. I learned this from a pro bodybuilder I trained with and a girlfriend who was a fitness model...I lost 25 lbs and have kept it off following this regimen. If it's too difficult you can have 1 cheat day a week where you eat whatever you want...but the speed of weight loss will diminish, somewhat, if you do this.

    Amen! I hate it but he's right. A good friend of mine had lost a ton of weight and told me all she did was give up sugar. I then did the same (last year) and lost a bunch of weight.

    Last week got a dr's report of cholesterol at 303 and both carotid arteries have started to clog....damn the doughnuts and the large German and Norwegian people that cook all that wonderful fresh bread and pastries!!!


    back on the no sugar and no bread, the food up here is wonderful and it truly is suffrage to do without seriously this is not for everyone I miss sugar and fresh baked bread.



    Nice belts, I think CWO was gonna order one somebody posted?!
