gun belt 2 yrs in

Post by Boriqua »

I wanted to post my thoughts on what i think is a belt bargain after living with it for about 2 years. I have this one and a widerness tactical 5 stitch.

https://www.daltechforce.com/collection ... ep-black-1

That right there in my personal opinion is a bargain and a half. I mostly carry owb with a light, open button up shirt. I mostly carry heavy, ish guns prone to bobble without a solid belt. This one has been amazing. Still the same price as when i bought it snd if you get in thier mailing list they frequently have specials. I bought the brown and it looks great and i dont think it screams gun to anyone but the initiated.

Steel core and THICK LEATHER makes it like a hoop around your waist. Can carry all day without discomfort.

I found the leather to be a bit dry when i recieved it so i recommend putting a couple of passes of a good wax and rub it in well. Love it. If you are in the market ... Cant recommend it enough

Very cool, I have an old “Ernie Hill” speed leather belt and holster from when I used to shoot ipsc in the 80’s. The belt has a steel insert. I’ve really missed being small enough to wear it. Really does hold the holster in place.
I may have to buy one of these.
Thanks for the post.

I've been looking for a new belt for a bit now. I've been using the same Galco belt for going on 8 years now so it's definitely time to get something new. I'm thinking I'll be giving this a try.

I am wearing mine as I type with a Loaded sig 229 in an OWB .. Best 65 bucks I have spent on gun gear.

Did you have any issues with sizing or anything?

No sizing was dead on. Measure your belt from the fold at the buckle to the hole you use. Forget the size printed on your current belt. I believe they have instructions on their site. Leave room if you plan in IWB. There are 9 holes so there is a lot of adjustment. In a regular belt i use a 36 but i bought this one a 38 in case i wanted to carry appendix or IWB. Plus it leaves room for growing or shrinking
