    Gun Belts?

    Howdy Folks,

    I've seen quite a few posts on holsters (I'm ordering a Crossbreed Supertuck this weekend), but I haven't seen many posts on belts.

    I know the gun belts are supposed to be more sturdy the provide a better platform to hold the holster. This sounds reasonable to me. Do most of you use a normal belt or order a gun belt?

    If most of you do buy a belt made specifically to support a holster, what belt do you recommend? I was thinking of ordering a belt from Crossbreed to go along with the Supertuck I'm ordering. Any recommendations or reviews?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Gun Belts?

    i use a thick leather belt (dickies) it works fairly well..

    you can get gun belts with plastic liners which make them stiff and very sturdy.

    an improvement for sure but they also cost about 100 bucks last i checked.. perhaps someone knows of cheaper.

    but ya if you go with a regular belt i suggest thick leather.

    Like joe, I don't buy gunbelts specifically. Good thick leather belts work just fine.

    I just use regular leather belts and honestly I don't even know anyone that has or uses a gun belt other than duty belts. I would just stick with a good thick leather belt that fits you the best. GOOD LUCK!!!

    If you never owned a good gun belt you have no idea how much better they are the a regular belt. I have a Crossbreed belt. It's 1000 times better then any regular belt I've owned. No stretching or sagging.

    A very good, but inexpensive belt is the following:

    The only downside is the buckle, but it can be replaced.

    Re: Gun Belts?

    I have a gunbelt that I bought from Kramer leather. It`s 1/4" thick and a little pricey, but I have had it for about 7 or 8 years and is still going strong. I tried a regular belt but it let my holster slide around.

    They run around $50 at our local gun store and are highly recommended.
    My father who got one said it makes a difference when carrying all day.

    I have used a good thick factory belt that we can get through our job and it has worked fine. but after 4 years is starting to show wear. Good luck.

    Re: Gun Belts?

    the price is right on that belt but i think the ones with a plastic liner would be better.. impossible for them to stretch.. that one is just 2 layers of thick leather..

    im sure it would stretch less then a regular leather belt but still seems like it would stretch a little.
