I'm getting ready to order a Galco instructor belt, its about time I get a good gun belt. But what's the difference between reinforced and non-reinforced? Is the reinforced just really really stiff?

I don't know about the Galco belts specifically, but a reinforced belt usually means that there is a Kydex, fiberglass or nylon stiffener sandwiched between the leather layers.

Look at the Wilderness instructor belt 5 stitch. Plenty stiff and last I knew they were on sale for about $40.

If it's your first belt and your not sure if you like reinforced or not pick up the 5.11 belt from my link above. It's reinforced and ultra cheap at $8 the finish is likely to fail fairly quickly depending on how much you wear it but it's a great belt functionally if you don't care much of how it look after a little while.

Myself I look at those belts like some of my own carry IWB rigs I'm the only one that sees them, I don't wear tucked in shirts often at all. To each his own:)
