I was taught to respect my elders! The problem is, I'm having a much harder time finding them these days .
As Buck stated, the 14 oz is more than enough. Good luck with it. I decided it was what I wanted too.
I believe Kennydale has an 18oz.

Several +1's for Bigfoot. I just bought a 18 ounce with steel core - an awesome belt - I will buy more. Customer service is absolutely superior. Shipped same day it was ordered. I ordered a 42 inch instead of a 40 - pay attention to their size recommendation - order 4 inches larger than your pant size - I wear a 36 waist pants. I sent it back to them to exchange for a 40 inch. Bigfoot shipped the new size back to me the same day they received my return and they paid for the shipping although I ordered the wrong size. They have a 5 day trial period and the "wrong size exchange" policy. I called them several times before I ordered with questions and each time they were superior. I can not recommend Bigfoot enough.

On the 1.5 or 1.75 inch question. Measure your belt loops. Too late if you have already ordered. Also most holsters can be made to work with a 1.75 inch belt.

I'm loving my Kore Essentials Gun Belt and would recommend them.
I have owned several gun belts (still do). My favorite has been Better Belt but after some abdominal surgeries I found that I couldn't wear IWB as the gun was almost right on the site of my new kidney. OWB required me to cinch up my belt so tight that I had significant discomfort. I recently got a Bigfoot (wearing it now) and with the steel support I can now at least wear OWB. It is by FAR the most firm belt of any I have ever owned, and I have only a few more holsters than belts

I've been wearing a Wilderness 5-stitch everyday now for more than four years OWB full size 1911.
No complaints yet. Currently having a leather belt made by Malabar Gunleather locally.

My preference is armourbelts.com. Mike makes a great belt.

I have a couple of Bigfoot Gunbelts on the way. I had to take advantage of their exchange policy because as measured by their method my size fell on an odd number and as an incentive to loose weight I chose the smaller size belt and should have chosen larger. The quality is very nice for the price.

I do not own any leather gun belts, I'm a nylon guy. Best one ive bought is a FightKraft one. I believe they call it there Axis belt. Its a buckle-less belt. Its awesome and super rigid. Its a 1.75in belt.
Another fan of A G Custom Leather. Great customer service as well. When my first belt came in, there was a note inside with my order that said they had the same belt size in a different color that had been returned and offered a healthy discount if I wanted it....after seeing the quality and fit of my order, I bought the other one as well.

Have owned several. I found BigFoot to be the best for me.
