    So say you have been using crappy belts up to this point, but have finally decided to get a good gun belt. This belt will be used mostly for CC. Who's belt would you get? So far I've been looking at The Belt Man, Milt Sparks and Crossbreed. The only experience I've had with any of these companies is a SuperTuck Deluxe, which i a phenomenal holster.

    Price aside, is there one maker you would go with over the others, or are of these belts fairly comparable?

    Thanks for any info.

    Crossbreed also makes and sells gun belts. They are super-stout and very thick. It would be a good match up to your Supertuck.

    Tough to beat Milt Sparks, or Ted Blocker.

    Is Ted Blocker still in business? I bought an IWB holster from him at least 15 years ago, haven't really heard of him since.

    Thanks guys, I'll give Ted Blocker and Wild Bills a look as well. At this point, I'm not really seeing much of a difference from one maker to another, and they all seem to make an extremely nice gun belt.

    I'm thinking about going for a 1.5", but I have a question. Do you guys like a gun belt with the insert or stiffener, or whatever it's called, or just a good thick leather belt?

    Do any of the companies mentioned above also make leather holsters and Belts for a S&W Model 27-2 5" Barrel.

    Wish I could locate my first duty holster in brown basket weave. It was made by William Clark Leather out of Pendleton IN. That would be a needle in the haystack locate after all these years. Stupid me! I sold it with the first 27 I had.

    I've not had a belt with a stiffener... always used just a thick leather belt.

    I like the belts with stiffeners for certain things. But a good, lined leather belt is better for edc.

    I use a 5.11 belt with a stiffner in it, bought it from midway usa. The belt holds the weight of my carry gun just fine and goes with anything. Down side is whatever they use to put the brown finish on the belt scrthes off fast.

    If you are not necessarily stuck on leather, I can recommend 5.11 Tactical's Operator or Trainer belts. I bought mine through NRA with the logo embroidered on it. They have a selection of colors and a few leather belts too.

    I can't recommend a real belt more than the Milt Sparks....after too many years of CCW...a real belt makes all the difference in the world ....and keeps your pants up with a full size 1911..spare mags etc.
