I have seen the nice gun belts online but does anyone know a place local for one of these? Prefer 1 1/2" brown or black leather.

Thanks,

Josh

I believe Sportsmens Warehouse has them as does Cabelas.

Since you are from Utah I will tell you about CHEEP.

I have 2 belts that I use for guns and work well. One brown and one balck. The key to a belt working well is stiffness. This is enhanced by 2 different pieces of leather being sewn together.

I found my 2 belts at Wal-Mart in the work clothes section for about $10.00 each. They also have removable buckles so that I can have my favorite buckle on each belt.

I've tried a couple of work belts from Walmart and found that they break down relatively quickly. I expect the more expensive and higher quality belt that I got from Beltman to last longer than several of the Walmart belts and, in the end, actually be cheaper than going the Walmart route.

I use the BlackHawk dress belt that we sale. It has a piece ofplastic inbetween two other pieces and has held up great. I have two of them, both in the Carbon Fiber and love them. I wear them daily and have no problems. We have them for $45. Just FYI.

I guess it depends on the belt. I wear mine daily and have had one for about 3 years and the other for about a year and a half. They still work fine for me.

I have the brown one on right now. :D

I still love the beltman belts. I have a Wal-Mart belt that is OK, and a few others that work too but the beltman belts are hand over fist better. I thought the belts I had were just fine, but a buddy of mine had a horsehide belt from the beltman, after trying it out I was sold.
(no I do not work for the beltman or even know him, Just a really impressed customer)

Nice work, James! How stiff is that belt... it appears to still be somewhat soft but maybe that's just the perspective of the photo.

The belt is 8-9 oz tooling cowhide. It is actually pretty stiff. I have used this one for over a year and it is holding up good. I carry the revolver shown on the belt every day.

James, any chance you'd want to finish one for me and put a little extra cash in your pocket???

James I have made two of these. They are good heavy belts. Did not know they would make good gun belts. Well give them a try. Thanks for the idea.

I know the original poster was looking for a leather belt, but for those who don't like leather, let me tell you about a couple nylon belts I would recommend.

BlackHawk makes some nice belts which you can see here. The one I like the best is the CQB/Emergency Rescue Rigger Belt, but it might not be stiff enough for a gun belt.



My personal favorite is the Wilderness Tactical Instructor's Belt which has the option of being reinforced with kydex and is custom made to your waist size. This is my daily belt and I love it!

I wish the Wilderness Belt would be acceptable in my work environment. Business casual just doesn't lend itself to a nylon belt with that type of rigging.

Im with you. I actually have a Wilderness belt (Exact one shown, except in sage) but it does not go well with my work ensamble.

Rose have you gone to Sportsmans or Cabelas and looked at there belt selection yet? I havnt had a chance, dont know if it is worth going.
