Concealment Solutions Python Gun Belt Review

20141022_092946 20141022_093039

When I began to carry concealed, I was wearing a thin leather belt that I had bought from Target for $14. I had seen people rave about having a good, sturdy belt for carrying, but I thought mine was great for it. Eventually, I decided to see, first hand, what all the talk was about, and MAN, was I wrong. The Concealment Solutions Python Gun Belt is an amazing belt for carry. It is made of two thick pieces of leather, sewn together, which make it very rigid and sturdy. It is 1.5” thick. The buckle is all metal, with no physical gaps, which prevents it from eventually spreading. I wanted a greater range of adjustment, so I asked for the holes to be spaces closer together at .75” rather than 1” and Jason, the owner of Concealment Solutions, happily obliged. The thickness of the leather keeps it from twisting, folding and sagging under the weight of the holster and firearm. I do with there were more buckle options and tooling/pattern options, but I’m sure if you contacted Jason, you may be able to work something out. For added rigidity, Concealment Solutions offers a Kydex lined model, but I didn’t feel it was necessary, for me. I have been wearing this belt for over two years, and it is still just as good as the day I got it. I recently did have to buy a new one, but that is only because I have lost weight, and it was beginning to wrap around my waist. My experience was just as great the second time as the first. You can also expect very good and quick service from Jason. If anyone needs a great leather belt for concealed carry, I can definitely recommend the Python Gun Belt.

Concealment Solutions Black Mamba CE Review


TJG Black Mamba Main

Concealment Solutions is a small company located in Provo, Utah run by an excellent guy named Jason Christensen. The Black Mamba CE is a hybrid Kydex/leather, inside-the-waistband holster. There are two models of the Black Mamba, the original and CE. The CE offers the “combat” cut leather that keeps you from grabbing the holster at the same time as the gun, which is a great TJG Black Mamba Sight Groovefeature at only a $5 increase. There are tons of models available, but if you are local to the Provo area Jason will take the time to custom fit any gun he doesn’t have a mold for. I purchased my Black Mamba for the Glock 26 I was carrying at the time. When I put it on, I immediately knew it was the perfect holster for me. I had previously been carrying in an all Kydex IWB holster that held the pistol straight up and entirely too high with no adjustments, which made even the subcompact Glock difficult to conceal, sometimes. Once I got my Mamba adjusted, I realized I could conceal even a full-size pistol. So much so, that I traded my TJG Black Mamba Clipsubcompact Glock 26 for a compact Glock 19. One of the great features of this holster is the incredible range of adjustability. On either side of the Kydex shell, in the leather, there are two tuckable clips mounted. Each clip has the option of being moved up or down by unscrewing the hardware and moving it to a different hole. This allows you to change the depth of the pistol in your waistband and, also, the cant of the grip, allowing you to carry it just the way you want it. The Kydex shell has a molded-in sight channel that is plenty large for any different sights you want to put on your pistol. There is a flare at the top that helps you guide the pistol back in. There is also a flare at the bottom, where the rail is, that I can only assume is to reduce the risk of the rail catching on the Kydex on the way out. Jason provides excellent customer service and answers emails very promptly. I would(and do) recommend the Black Mamba to anyone and everyone that needs a great concealment holster.
