Information About Gun Belts
Recommend to Your friends
Gun belt Kits need to be finished. All that HAS to be done is for the buckle to be attached with the included “Chicago” screws. Many people who not a “dress” belt need opt for the kit. If you want to finish it completely all you have to do is burnish the edges, and dye it. Complete instructions are included.
If you carry a gun on your waist you DO NEED a gun belt! In fact, a proper belt is just as important as a proper holster . Normal store bought belts cannot come close to the stability and rigidity of a true “Gun Belt”. A real gun belt will distribute the weight of the gun around your ENTIRE waist, not just the part holding your gun. A typical belt cannot hold the weight of a fully loaded pistol tight against your body in a secure manner, because they simply weren’t designed to function that way.
What makes a “Gun Belt” different than a typical belt? Well, to begin with, these belts are over a quarter of an inch thick! By laminating two layers of leather together in the proper way, it becomes much stiffer and resistant to stretching under a load. The two straps of bull hide are also sewn with a very heavy thread for a bond that will last forever. It is finished off with a high quality roller buckle. This belt will handle any amount of gear. If you have the room for it, this belt will hold it. Guaranteed.
By purchasing your gun belts as a kit you will save BIG. You can finish your belt yourself, or wear it like it is if you love the look of natural leather. Our kits include the 1-1/2″ sewn belt that has been cemented together, sanded to even the edges and professionally sewn. The kit also comes with a pre-assembled keeper, the heavy duty roller buckle, and all of the hardware required for assembly.
The size of belt you wear with a gun belt will be different than a typical belt. Please follow the instructions below to determine the proper size of belt needed. Please don’t skip this step, but rest easy in knowing that you may exchange your belt for the proper size if you accidentally order the wrong size.
Measuring Option 1 (best)- Measure your current belt from the farthest tip of the buckle to the hole you use with all of your gear mounted.
Measuring Option 2 – Measure your current belt from the end of the buckle to the hole you use with no gear mounted and add 2-3 inches for inside-the-waistband carry.
Measuring Option 3 – Run a tailor’s tape through your belt loops, and add 2 inches for inside-the-waistband carry.
Measuring Option 4 (least accurate)- Add three to four inches to your pants waist size.
