Well, it seems that I have reached the weight my body intends to stay at. I went from near 300 pounds down to 160. I will probably put some weight on but, it won't be fat this time as I have shifted the majority of my workout from cardio to weight lifting.
My waist is now a 30 down from 46 and I have had to get a few new belts along the way. I have not gone for expensive gun belts during all this because I knew I was still dropping weight and would need new pants and belts every 2 months or so. But, I have leveled off and so, I am in search of a new gun belt that I will be wearing for the next few years.
I have considered the 5.11 trainers belt and I may buy one of those but I would also like to get a good leather belt. I would be interested in hearing any and all suggestions for belts from our members.
The one I had when I started dropping the weight was made by a great man who has since died.
Just looked at the site Bruce. Thanks! Looks like there is something for everyone there.
I've never seen or heard a negative comment about Jim. I don't hesitate to recommend him. He'll get you fixed up.
And congrats on the weight loss. That's one hell of an accomplishment, and you should be proud. I have no doubt you're feeling 100% better!
Nate of UBgholsters makes a great belt to i love mine
See my thread about the 5.11 leather belt. For $29.98 it looks good, wears good and holds up my full size 1911.
The only problem I found was the size chart seems one size small. I have a 38 waist and needed the 40-42 (XL) belt.
+1 for UBG. I have one, and it's a great belt.

And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

Picked up a Gould & Goodrich last summer, and have been very pleased with it, but always looking for a new belt myself.
