Default Importance of a good Belt!

I have often heard that your belt is just as important as your holster. I agree with that, after trying out a few holsters with my everyday dress belt. My question is, do I have to go the route of one of these "concealed carry" rugged belts? Has anyone found just a name brand belt from the mall that is sturdy enough to do the job? I see the belts from Galco and 5.11 Tactical and wonder if I could find something comparable at the local department store. Any suggestions??

I've yet to see a "regular" belt that really does as good a job as a gun belt. If the gun you're carrying is very light then possibly but if it's steel - forget about it...

Short answer; NO.

Does an airsoft 1911 work for you as a CCW piece. (Hint, same answer; NO!)

And YES, it is that black and white!

Cash up and get a task specific belt.

A good carry belt will make a mediocre holster work, the opposite is NOT true! - cane

Talk to Jim Speidel (The Belt Man) and have him make you the best CCW accessory you can add to your wardrobe!
