This is pretty much true. But no matter what you choose to use make sure it will do what you weant it to. Otherwise you can end up wit ha box of belts to match the box of holsters that many like myself have aquired over the years.
A good belt is important. You don't want something that gets too limp and will force you to make you wear it tighter than you might want to just to hold your gun up. This comes into play much more as the weight of the pistol goes up. You should get what YOU want and only you can decide what is too expensive. I've used tons of belts form all over and spent a lot to not so much. The one I'm using now I found on sportsmans guide page a few years ago. So far it's held up excellent. I carry pistols from a full size 1911 to a 637 Smith 38 snubby. Here's a link
to the one I have now. It's listed wit ha holster and mag pouch (sold separately). I have not found a belt that can do as well as this one for the same money (this one is all of 26 bucks). I figured for that kind of money that if it lasted a year or so I'd be fine with it. Well, it's been three years now and I have no plans to replace it. It works great and looks pretty nice too.
