Any suggestions on good belts to use for CC? For OWB I have a Bianchi Black Widow holster. I have a couple normal leather belts but I don't think they'll work too well for holding the weight over time.
Beltman has a good reputation. I have one from Tucker (tuckergunleather.com) that I like really well. Unscrews for changing from brass to silver buckle, and has a velcro backing for my deep concealment holster (also from Tucker, the Texas Heritage). It's a great belt, cannot imagine getting a better one.
+1 on Tucker Gunleather, great belts and holsters!
I have a 1 1/2" gunbelt being made by Steve at RafterS as we speak. The wait time is only supposed to be 3 weeks for a custom sharkskin belt made to my specs. That is fast!
The only bad thing I can say about them is that, being a busy small family business, they are hard to get on the phone. However, when Della does answer, she is very nice and willing to spend time answering questions. It more than makes up for getting the answering machine most of the time.
Right now i'm using a Carhart that is leather backed by nylon. It works well for me. When i first stared carrying a friend took me to a shoe repair shop in Bay St. Louis. The guy there told me to wear my oldest belt that still fit. He used it as a pattern for a new double layer bull/buffao hide belt he made. He drew the belt out and it was curved not straight like most new belts. He charged me fifty bucks at a time when a belt cost ten.
