Quickly Who makes something good that I won't have to wait 6 months for?
I have a RafterS Sharkskin belt that I really like. If you need it quick, Aker B21's can't be beat.
After looking all night last night I ordered a Galco Cop belt for $50. Hope it's half-way decent.
I don't even carry, but I wear one almost every day. Damn good belt.
I've got the Aker b21 as well, it's great
I bought this Aker dress belt the other day. Polymer insert so it holds nicely.
Ordered and it shipped the next day.
Got mine from galls as well. They are great.
I ordered the wrong size, sent it back on Tuesday and had the new one on Thursday. Price is damn good as well.
Sweet, thanks for the suggestions guys.
love that belt.
What makes a GOOD belt? Do they have inserts or something?
A good belt is nice and rigid and will hold the additional weight of a holsted gun without sagging, etc. It is also most evident when drawing from the belt, that it minimizes holster shift and allows for you to make a swift and crisp draw from your holster.
It's a dam shame using a nice holster, with an even nicer gun to use with a sears strap belt.
For compeition I use a 5.11 operator 5 stitch. And in USPSA a CR speed Hi Torque belt. for CCW, I just use a 1.25" Kramer.
Heard good things about Aker. I'm about to order one myself.
A proper gun belt is two pieces of leather stitched together with the grain running in different directions. This makes them vertically very stiff, the belt won't roll or flex under the weight of the gun making it more comfortable and better concealed. A belt can be very thick and stuff but if it rolls up like a taco its still going to suck for a gun.
This n00b has the right idea. Beltman FTW. Mine arrived in about 3 weeks made to my specs.
made with kydex inserts!
Also, I get my gunbelts at walmart
synthetic, stiff as hell, and 8.88$
You have some explaining to do.
I'm all about value, the walmart belts work great for me, so i can't see spending more money on one that may or may not work (plus alot of them have patterns or styles that just don't fit the way I dress)...
But there are nothing but comp-tac holsters, mag pouches, and flashlight holders hanging off that walmart belt
So you mean just go into Men's Wear and find the stiffest belt?
Or do they have GUN BELTS in Sporting Goods by the ammo?
I certainly haven't seen any. And the ones in Men's Wear are shitty quality.
OH, sorry, Yes just goto mens wear and raid the rack... they have some that are 1 1/2" synthetic that are really stiff. I have 2 black ones and a brown. I also have a black one from thebeltman that i got as a gift... i rarely wear it for some reason... the walmart belts are almost as stuff for 1/8th the price.
I'm not expecting anything great out of it... but I might just take you up on that idea.
If it doesn't work out, hell, then I'll just buy an Aker or something.
LOL, I'm no snob, I wear what works. I'll have to go check it out. Got a pic? What brand? Hell, they're cheap enough, when they do wear out, just chuck it and buy another. I'd rather spend my money on Ammo. I'm picking up 15k Next friday.
I'm currently using a dress belt that I bought for my wedding mamoru:) from Kohl's.
Its really stiff, and it works... but its not perfect. And its starting to get deformed and beat up from carrying my M&P daily.
It's faded glory or what ever walmart carries, not at home so no pics right now, sorry
